5535 Watson

Like its companion <a class="gray" href="details.aspx?ptID=5528" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Holmes</a>, Watson achieves what seems elementary but is actually quite complex: the perfect balance between elegance and versatility. With its tailored, striped pattern, exceptional Alpaca-like hand, and outstanding wearability, this 54" wool velvet upholstery is beautiful for sofas and wing chairs in sophisticated residential interiors and high-end offices. Exceeds 100,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).

Part of the Brentano Green collection, Watson is woven in a facility that follows stringent European environmental laws and also has several environmental programs in place, such as a system to collect rainwater to use for operations. The masculine shades of Watson are dyed using a "<a class="gray" href="../fabrics_FAQ/glossary_fiber.aspx?alpha=F#fiber dyeing" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">fiber-dyed</a>" process, which conserves 70% more water than piece-dyeing. All dyes used comply with <a class="gray" href="../fabrics_FAQ/eco_fabrics.aspx?show=17#q8" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">REACH</a> standards. Watson is available for possible LEED points.
