Performance Fabrics for Todays Lifestyles

This is an exciting time to be specifying fabrics for our client’s projects. With most of us still working or studying from home, furniture & fabrics need to hold up for extended periods of use against wear and tear. Current technologies have given manufacturers the ability to provide fabrics in an amazing array of textures, color & pattern with the knowledge they will hold up for years!

Performance fabrics offer the following characteristics, depending on treatment:

  • Performance soil and stain resistant finish
  • Long lasting to enhance the life of fabric
  • Water repellent
  • Anti-microbial
  • Easy to clean
  • Low maintenance
  • High durability
  • Family & pet friendly
  • Enhanced abrasion performance
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Variety of fabric choices

Check out this article from Pindler Fabrics on their 2021 predictions for fabrics.

Their design team predicts that 2021 will bring bold colors, comforting environments and a focus on durability.

As these trends shape the industry this year, vibrant hues, serene shades, soft textures and performance qualities will all be in high demand.


Hopefully soon, more venues will open and we can get out and enjoy concerts, movies, and indoor dining, etc., but in the meantime here are a few events for your enjoyment that are safe to visit.
