Textile brand Brentano have launched their spring 2013 collection of high-performance textiles suitable for contract, healthcare, and institutional environments. Called Symphonic, the collection features dynamic patterns, fresh colors and a residential hand.
Brentano's Symphonic collection includes a well-priced, suede alternative called Maestro and a lively upholstery called Polka.
Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, the lively Polka is a small-scale, geometric pattern that is bleach cleanable, and has both a Nano-Tex and DuraBlock finish. This 54” upholstery comes in 8 colors and passes 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).
On the other hand, Maestro is more subdued. A 100% poyester chenille with a Teflon finish creates a matte texture that gives a soft, suede-like effect. Maestro comes in 9 colors, measures 56” and has a wearability of over 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Thanks to the Teflon finish, Maestro also has increased stain resistance.
