With our North American alignment, we are pleased to debut two textiles offered through this partnership.
Floyd is a discreet and precise upholstery textile design offering an optimal combination of manmade and natural materials: the durability of polyester yarns with the natural expression of undyed wool yarns.
The wool yarns are processed as little as possible to give the surface of Floyd a subtly striated appearance, emphasized by the solid, bolder colors of the polyester yarns. The natural properties of wool allow for small clusters of yarn to appear on the fabric’s surface for a playful look.
The colorways of Floyd offer different interpretations of primary and secondary colors, such as blue, red, and green. When combined, they create classic neutral nuances, such as cream, with highlight tones like intense greens and pinks.
Melange Nap is a woolen upholstery textile characterized by exceptional depth of color and surprising details, offering a distinctively unique mélange expression.
Extremely soft yet durable, Melange Nap appears to be brushed. It is constructed with a unicolored and a mélange yarn, which creates a graphic pattern of tiny dots that play across its surface.
The volume of details that emerges from the surface of Melange Nap depends on the contrast between the yarns. Some of the darker colorways almost appear unicolored, whereas others have an intriguing multicolored look.
Enter to win a Haworth Poppy™ chair upholstered in Floyd or Melange Nap, or a Kvadrat Melange Nap bag.
