Carnegie’s New Upholstery Collection Makes You Look Twice
Carnegie today announced the release of the Double Exposure Collection, introducing seven new upholstery patterns: Escapade, Odyssey, Scholar, Revolve Print, Soiree Print, Maze Print, and Tartan Print. A collection that will have you looking twice, Double Exposure is a line of upholsteries that imitates the look of woven and natural textures to offer high-performance options for any interior.
Revolve Print, Soiree Print, Maze Print, and Tartan Print are digitally printed silicone hybrid upholsteries meticulously designed to mimic the appearance of a woven fabric. Each dynamic and visually textured pattern is brought to life through exceptional clarity in digital printing—giving the collection a warm, woven feel with all the benefits of a durable, sustainable, and cleanable silicone. Escapade takes advantage of advances in coated technology to work against any potential hydrolysis issues in the field; Scholar imitates the look of a high-end leather skin with unparalleled resistance to pesky ink and denim stains; and Odyssey is a plush woven chenille fabric combined with innovative PFOA-free moisture barrier technology that is resistant to oil-based stains.
At Carnegie, we believe that you don’t have to sacrifice beauty or sustainability for cleanability. Double Exposure offers the best of both worlds—bringing enduring and scrubbable fabrics to the market that are suitable for a wide variety of spaces from healthcare to hotels, offices to schools. As a forever PVC-free company, Carnegie’s coated fabrics are always free of toxic chemicals, including but not limited to formaldehyde, antimicrobials, phthalates, and plasticizers.
