Crypton Fabrics: Pompadour and Parfait

As the counterpart to the refined and residential spring Essentials collection, fall 2011's Portfolio showcases Brentano design work with an attention to high-performance contract and healthcare textiles that have been created with an artist's sensibility. With fabrics that can be used in the most strenuous environments while also providing exciting pattern, depth of texture, and stunning color, the 16 new textiles in the Portfolio collection exemplify the Brentano philosophy of beauty + performance.

Pompadour and Parfait
Brentano showcases textiles that meet rigorous performance standards while maintaining an artistic approach to design.

Large-scale, dramatically patterned Pompadour is a well-priced, statement-making upholstery. Its swirling pattern is both familiar and new, offering a traditional motif in an array of 6 contemporary colorways. An acrylic weft gives a heathered appearance, while a polyester warp provides strength, and a satin weave contributes a precise, finished look. Measures 54" and passes 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).

54" Parfait is patterned with an orchestra of rhythmic, horizontally-stacked stripes, making it an exceptional value for a stunning, multicolored upholstery. Available in 11 vibrant and usable colorways, this 51% acrylic and 49% polyester fabric is both sophisticated and durable. Parfait is perfect for interiors requiring pattern, color, and performance. Passes 95,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).

Both Pompadour and Parfait are Crypton fabrics, making them suitable for high-traffic environments requiring superior stain resistance.

Portfolio also offers beautiful residential fabrics that perform exceptionally well, each of which passes 45,000 or more double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Because the primary focus is on increasing Brentano's selection of smartly-designed high performance textiles, this collection includes many more new options with Crypton and GreenShield and Balance Barrier finishes, numerous bleach cleanable fabrics, and incredibly durable faux leathers. Additionally, Portfolio introduces 6 new eco-fabrics with the Brentano Green label.
