Trend & Inspiration

We are interested in what fabric can bring to life. This journal is a celebration of the lifestyle, culture and design that influences what we do.

Our product designers build their vision and design cues through being in-tune with dominant global trends and how they are translated into our local culture and environment. Inspiration comes from a variety of channels such as international fashion, product and interior design, art and architecture and attending key trade and lifestyle events.

I love the outdoor fabrics on indoor pieces – it’s so nice to be able to give clients that level of confidence in maintaining fabrics, especially when there are little ones. 

More and more we see the demand for high performance upholstery fabrics that can withstand the usage and requirements for both residential and commercial interiors.  

Outdoor fabrics need to be durable and resistant to all types of climatic conditions; however they also need to have a soft hand and complimentary designs. We take a look at the benefits of outdoor textiles and the wide range of fabrics on offer to suit any outdoor living space.

"Our Southern Hemisphere summer is in full swing and the majority of us are spending a lot of time relaxing outdoors. The antipodean lifestyle embraces the benefits of outdoor living spaces and the furniture that defines these spaces."
