21 Feb Outdoor upholstery in colour and style
As much we love Winter, we think you agree – we are also REALLY REALLY looking forward to Spring! And when it finally gets here, we don’t want to miss a minute of it sitting indoors. So, to take our minds to warmer places, here is our design team’s top pick for the best outdoor textile design options, to welcome every wonderfully sunny day ahead!
Kvadrat has been leading the field in textile innovation since it was founded in 1968 – and true to their founding vision, continue to produce contemporary high-quality textiles and textile-related products for architects, designers and private consumers to specify in public spaces and domestic interiors.
True to their spirit of innovation and environmentally conscious approach to product development, Kvadrat, has introduced their first upholstery textile especially developed for outdoors. The product range provides resistance against chlorine, seawater and artificial weathering and is flame-retardant. With such an impressive range of features, Patio sets a new standard for outdoor textiles both in terms of properties and look and feel while being 100% free of fluorocarbon. What’s more, it is made with a highly durable, specially developed Trevira CS yarn.
The Patio collection is inspiring in every possible way. 26 colourways created by Danish textile designer Karina Nielsen Rios, this collection transitions seamlessly from indoor, outdoor, and everything-in-between spaces in your home or professional environments.
In addition to its technical features, it also stands out for a soft touch compared to other outdoor fabrics. Patio has a subtle structure, which combines two coloured yarns in the warp and one in the weft. Depending on the level of contrast between the colours, Patio appears either almost unicoloured or more textured.
Patio is suitable for all outdoor spaces, as well as other areas, like spas and indoor pools, where high-humidity and chlorine are a factor. In addition to furniture, it can also be used for screens, parasols and even umbrellas!
