The latest window coverings collaboration between Carnegie Fabrics and Swiss textile specialist Création Baumann, is intended to allow designers more freedom and room for experimentation when creating everything from outdoor lounges to indoor conference rooms. Technical and functional, the nine new patterns can be used as window coverings to block light, as interior space dividers and for outdoor applications (two of the nine meet contract requirements for indoor and outdoor use, are resistant to high UV exposure and pass certified requirements for flammability).
Two highlights include:
Lola (102100), a transparent window fabric in a traditional embroidery style made from contract-grade performance yarns. The unbacked sheer is finish-free, stain-resistant and made from 100 per cent FR polyester.
Woven with an undulating leno (or gauze) weave, Relax features decorative weft yarns that appear to float in the transparent fabric. Made from 100 per cent Trevira CS polyester, the window panels are finish-free and easy to clean. Carnegie is the exclusive North American partner for Création Baumann’s commercial products, including window coverings and performance textiles.
