New Collection: Cordia

Chenille fabrics have long been sought-after for their extremely soft feel and iridescent coloring. Getting its name from the French word for caterpillar, chenille fabrics are comfortable, warm, and have a luxurious quality about them due their velvet-like nature. Cordia, a new upholstery textile collection, exemplifies all of these features and more.IS34_CORDIA

Like the flowering plant of the same name, Cordia contains a vivid spectrum of both energetically bright and natural colors. Cordia flowers even have fuzzy leaves similar to the chenille yarns in this collection. Each of the four patterns in Cordia blends and integrates together as easily as they are able to stand on their own, which gives designs a new sense of versatility.IS34-41

Similar to velvets, Cordia’s patterns reflect and refract light in the most delightful ways. A dark grey can appear silver one moment or black the next, depending on the angle you view it in. Some of the tone on tone colors even look solid from afar but sport a surprising textured pattern once you get closer to it. Cordia is perfect for adding depth and richness to a room.

This exquisite collection captures the functionality and durability of upholstery textiles which absolutely gives it a boost over conventional velvets. Cordia is a much more accessible type of textile that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Use Cordia to create a lush setting, filled with soft fabrics, high-style, and grandeur. Or, integrate Cordia patterns into a more laid-back atmosphere by building a comforting space around the soft chenille patterns, adding in chunky woven designs,  and other knitted textiles. Take a look through the Cordia collection and let the design possibilities blossom as you discover its expertly woven patterns and vibrant colors in the most durable chenille yarns.IS34-52
