Carnegie, an innovator of textiles in North America, is expanding their upholstery line with the “Viewpoint Collection.” Bringing a fresh, inspired new vision to upholstery, Carnegie Creative Studio presents this resimercial-focused collection with the intention of creating a new “Viewpoint” towards the way people are living and working.
“In a time where people want to bring the serene comfort of home to the workplace, people are looking for something that feels familiar. They want to surround themselves with fabrics that evoke a feeling of warmth and comfort,” says Upholstery Studio Director, Chase Taylor. “We’ve created something traditional in feeling, but with a modern perspective and look.”
Mary Holt, president of Upholstery adds, “This vast collection further promotes Carnegie’s goal of creating textiles that not only achieve our high standard of performance but also affirms our ability to provide endless design solutions, surpassing all design expectations while upholding Carnegie’s core value of sustainable, durable versatility.”
The launch of “Viewpoint” also marks the expansion of Carnegie’s Elements category of value- conscientious, performance upholstery. With the addition of exciting patterns to compliment the wide range of Elements solids and textures.
New product highlights:
Tartan—inspired by very traditional Scottish wool plaids, Carnegie has updated the look and texture using a soft chenille that gives this fabric an amazing hand
Petal—An elegant simplification of the flower to just one simple element—the petal. Using that motif, Carnegie has created a very contemporary and clean pattern. By pairing this with a quality that has incredible dimension, they’ve elevated this fabric and given it a bold, modern look. The color line includes classic neutrals, but also includes a fresh citron color that adds a certain zing to the palette.
Emblem—A soft chenille but with a twist. Built into the weave structure of the fabric is a shrink yarn that once off the loom, gives this fabric dimension and structure that comes to life upholstered. A basic chair is suddenly infused with depth and materiality, but with a soft hand that is also bleach cleanable.
Perspective—Carnegie’s indoor/outdoor Sunbrella quality. The organic brushstroke pattern easily creates a signature look without becoming overwhelming. It’s a bold patterned plain, a stripe that ties all of the other fabrics in a scheme together. It also performs to 100,000 Wyzenbeek and is bleach cleanable.
Entwine—Part of Elements, Carnegie’s fabric line references a very simple graphic check, but is interpreted in a very organic, painterly way that makes it feel fresh.
