This time of year, we all have a bit of wanderlust, and Michael Graves Design Group has just the ticket for exploring new frontiers in high-performance fabrics for healthcare and contract interiors. Unveiled at NeoCon 2012, the Voyages collection for CF Stinson is inspired by the designer's love of travel and features six patterns inspired by distant lands. Like a favorite piece of luggage, the fabrics can also stand the test of time.

The durable, cleanable surfaces are available in six patterns: Latitude, Graves's Japanese-inspired answer to faux leather (ten colorways); Excursion, a pattern of leaves over a negative space of leather-like textile (ten colorways); Auberge, a French-inspired floral pattern (ten colorways); Passport, a wavy checkered grid (nine colorways); Valise, a pattern that uses square shapes with matte and gloss finishes (nine colorways); and Entrada, a dimensional print that incorporates 20 hues within each colorway (ten colorways).
