New Seating Fabrics - Fall 2017

Posted by Guilford of Maine on November 7, 2017

Since the middle of the last century the office environment has evolved from private offices to cubicle farms to open office. Now in 2017, we are working in spaces that combine collaborative areas encouraging interaction with private spaces allowing for focus and introspection.

With 24/7 connectivity we are also seeing the integration of the personal and the professional, the home and the office. Today’s workforce prefers a more useable, approachable, and comfortable feel to their work spaces – more and more like their homes.

This diverse and dynamic collection of nine upholstery fabrics with 117 colorways speaks to the way we work today. We need highly functional and durable fabrics that work in a variety of environments and on a range of furniture pieces to soothe or energize, inspire or connect. Encompassing a range of colors, textures, and patterns these fabrics have the look, value, and performance to work anywhere, anytime just like our new work style.

Below is more information on each pattern. To see the full colorline and order free samples, click the links below.
