Beautiful palettes: Midtown Collection by KnollTextiles

KnollTextiles introduced the Midtown collection, designed in honor of Knoll’s move from Chelsea to Midtown Manhattan. The collection comprises foundation textiles for walls as well as upholstery, with a saturated palette of clean and clear color. Included are three fabrics from the KT collection of modern designs. The collection also includes five new upholsteries (including six new colors for Ultrasuede), namely: Journey, Commuter Cloth, Rush Hour and Tilden; as well as two new wall coverings called Express and Transfer.

Journey is a classic bouclé fabric made of 50 percent recycled polyester and available in a range of 18 colors. Commuter Cloth is made of 75 percent post-consumer recycled content. Rush Hour is a texture with a slight figure eight pattern, and which uses a high sheen twist yarns to create a two-tone effect. Meanwhile, Tilden is a polyurethane upholstery that contains a subtle undulating stripe, giving it texture and dimension; it is made with Cleangene technology, which means that it is stain resistant, highly durable, and bleach solution cleanable.

The six new Ultrasuede colors bring the total number of Ultrasuede colors available up to 97.
