New High-Performance Textiles Ideal for Any Interior
Brentano expands performance collection with usable and fresh textiles


True to their motto, all Brentano fabrics strive to strike the perfect balance of beauty + performance. For the spring 2013 Symphonic collection, Design Director Iris Wang explored the emotions evoked by beautiful music and the many ways to illustrate sound. The patterns she developed embrace the beauty of a classical symphony yet harmonize it with high-performance features like bleach cleanability, healthcare finishes, and superb abrasion resistance. As a result, the Symphonic collection introduces textiles that are suitable for contract, healthcare, and institutional environments that also offer dynamic patterns, fresh colors, and a residential hand.

Brentano’s spring 2013 collection brings out high-performance textiles that are usable and fresh, including the well-priced, suede alternative Maestro and lively upholstery Polka. Both are designed for contract, healthcare, and institutional interiors or for use in high-traffic residential environments.

A playful addition to the Symphonic collection, Polka is a small-scale, geometric pattern that is well-priced, bleach cleanable, and has both a Nanotex and DuraBlock finish. Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, this 54” upholstery comes in 8 energetic colors and will add liveliness to contract areas or high-traffic residential applications. Passes 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).

Maestro—like the conductor in an orchestra or any master musician—gets the job done no matter how high the stakes. This 100% polyester chenille comes in 9 practical colors and has a Teflon finish while maintaining a soft hand. Light bounces off the matte texture to create a 3D, suede-like effect, but for an exceptional price. Maestro measures 56” and has an outstanding wearability of over 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Teflon finish increases stain resistance.
