Hushed neutrals and cool pastels in the Phifertex Leisure Fabric’s Cape Cod line captures the relaxing mood of an Oceanside escape
Phifertex Leisure and Cushion Fabrics’ Shimmer & Shine Collection is durable yet vogue enough for fashion runways
Phifer’s GeoBella fabrics offer earth-friendly beauty for use indoors or out
Phifer Incorporated introduces GeoBella, a line of earth-friendly outdoor cushion fabrics made of 100% olefin yarns recycled from post-industrial waste.
These PVC-free, 100% recyclable outdoor furniture fabrics feature a soft, touchable texture that recreates the comfort of indoor furniture yet has the stability, strength and durability needed for outdoor cushion applications.
Equally chic as they are eco-friendly, GeoBella cushion fabrics pair the perfect combinations of coordinating hues and intricately-woven, touchable weaves for a host of options to suit any decorating needs.
Another fashionable addition to outdoor furniture fabrics is the Phifertex Leisure Fabrics Shimmer & Shine Collection. Engineered, metallic tones and soft, romantic shades combine to create a sleek urban vibe. With names such as Urbana, Metallica and Magnetic, these fabrics balance bold stripes, varied geometric shapes, patterns and plenty of texture in heavy alloy colors with more delicate plum and lavender shades. Glitzy, opalescent hues, such as mother of pearl, add an extra glint of shine to this modern grouping for a fitting combination of rugged and feminine.
For soft colors reminiscent of seaglass found along the Northeastern shore, the Phifertex Leisure Fabrics Cape Cod collection delivers a calming palette and sophisticated patterns. Hushed cream and white combine with cool pastels in shades of blue, green and yellow for a light and airy tone, with casual stripes and delicate floral patterns serving as the backdrop to define coastal living.
Phifertex Leisure Cushion and Sling fabrics can be used indoors or outdoors. They are available in an array of intricately woven designs in dobbies, wicker weaves, stripes and jacquards. These fabrics have the strength and stability needed for outdoor performance, yet many are soft enough for deep seating cushions. High performance Phifertex Leisure Fabrics can also be used in awning, umbrella, pillow and other applications.
Phifer’s fabrics do not absorb water and dry quickly, providing resistance to mold and mildew growth. These fabrics are also exceptionally durable, fade-resistant, stain-resistant and easy to clean, even with bleach.
For fabrics elegant enough for indoor use, rugged enough to withstand outdoor elements and as earth-friendly as they are fashionable, Phifer may offer the fabric of choice. For more information, call Phifer at 800-221-5497 or e-mail inquiries through the Web site at www.phifer.com.
