Where European Design Meets the American Designer
As the demand for more diverse high performance indoor/outdoor fabric has been growing throughout the United States within the design world - Outdoorfabrics.com has partnered with Glen Raven Mills Sunbrella to extend the entire European Collection to the U.S. market!
The efforts of Dickson-Constant - the subsidiary of Sunbrella in France -- to design colors and textures appealing to continents abroad has drawn the attention of many designers throughout the United States. Allowing for color diversity and unique color combinations the collection brings to life bold new solids and stripes that would not have been created for the US Market. With over 138 styles this fresh new look combines deep cool pallets and sophisticated contemporary designs throughout the collection that will surely flourish with the new demands of United States based designers searching for unique and inspiring fabrics for all aspects of production.
This collection opens previously closed minds of those who once thought Sunbrella fabric was branded and limited to outdoor use only. Re-designing for a high-end European Market, Dickson-Constant created a collection durable enough for outdoor use, but with the design aspect catering to interior applications. Now this collection gives strength and beauty for all areas of interior production such as - indoor draperies, headboards and bed skirts, breakfast nooks, living rooms, dining rooms, sun rooms, and any other area of the home where a furniture grade material is needed.
Here is what Glen Raven Mills is saying about Dickson-Constant and where they draw their design aspects as featured in Raven Magazine:
"A Dickson-Contant design team drew inspiration for the new Sunbrella collection from international trade shows throughout Europe. The new fabrics emphasize a "natural" look and feel with offerings such as Natte, Linen and Deauville that suggest cotton. Jacquard woven fabrics, such as Cadiz and Stone, add flexibility and texture."
Patrick Raguet, Marketing Director with Dickson-Constant had this to say: "We are evolving as a provider of home lifestyle products, and Sunbrella is one of our key offerings. The new collection is a major step forward in the international evolution of the brand."
Here are some spectacular shots of fabric featured by Dickson-Constant at an old castle in Italy.
If you are an interior designer this is a must see fabric collection for the 2013 - 2014 year of design! Here is a sneak peak at the European Sunbrella Collection available in the United States exclusively in the coming months at OUTDOORFABRICS.COM.
