Brentano goes back to basics with spring 2012 collection
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, April 3, 2012
When Brentano clients seeking sophisticated and graphic outdoor upholstery emerged, the design studio decided to rework their successful pattern Dahlia. They knew they would need to alter the weave to create a textile that could stand up to the elements and they were aware of the necessity of offering both classic hues and fresh shades.
In response to these requests, Brentano created Zinnia, anoutdoor upholstery that maintains the Japanese stencil-inspired, botanical pattern of Dahlia but re-imagines the weave for outdoor requirements and re-colors it to create fresh options perfect for outdoor applications. Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, Zinnia meets contract performance standards at 30,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). It also offers strong lightfastness and has both Teflon and antibacterial finishes. Available in 9 colors ranging from classic neutrals, like Dreamland and Aztec, to Art Deco and the bold Sunbow and Peppermint Stick.
A modern take on a classic at Bretano.
