Valley Forge Fabrics has launched its Florence Broadhurst textiles collection with four distinctive patterns from one of the most influential post-war designers.
Earlier this year, Valley Forge Fabrics inked a licensing deal to become the first U.S.-based licensee distributing the new collection of textiles globally, with Signature Design Archives, owner of the Florence Broadhurst archive of over 500 patterns.
Four signature Florence Broadhurst patterns on fabric are selected for release by Valley Forge this year: Fingers, Steps, Kabuki, and Pomegranates. Each is constructed specifically for hospitality use, in durable upholstery weight or a lighter drapery weight, for use in hotel and resort interiors, and more.
To create the collection, Valley Forge remained faithful to the unconventional aesthetics that earned Florence Broadhurst her reputation as a bold designer, such as larger than typical pattern sizes and a healthy dose of strong colors, according to the company.
“As charismatically fearless as she was talented, Florence Broadhurst’s design legacy is finally available as performance textiles in the USA,” said Brandi Kolanz, director of products and design at Valley Forge. “We are thrilled to announce the collaboration of a selection of inspiring and timeless designs from the Florence Broadhurst collection.”
The new fabric collection includes wovens, prints, embroideries and other specialty constructions engineered for hospitality contract use.
Through the careful selection of weaving techniques, yarns, and pattern consideration, Valley Forge is able to bring the vision and splendor of Florence Broadhurst designs to the hospitality industry.
