Known the world over for performance fabrics that are durable and beautiful, Glen Raven Custom Fabrics will focus on soft comfort and rich texture with an extensive new line of December Showtime introductions. From matelassé to quilted textures, the variety of new Sunbrella upholstery fabrics emphasizes the brand’s growing use for home décor inside and out.

“Our customers have always relied on us for fabrics that are as beautiful as they are durable and easy care, which is a testament to innovations in fabric design and manufacturing,” said Gina Wicker, design and creative director for Sunbrella fabrics. “Our new collections demonstrate how we are bringing greater comfort and textural appeal to upholstery without any compromises on performance.”

Five new collections of Sunbrella upholstery fabrics will be introduced during Showtime – Retreat, Vitality, Aurora, Daybreak and Bellamy. The groups are diverse in color offerings, including rich denim hues, intense earthy tones and subtle neutrals, with textural interest and softness serving as unifying themes.

With an eclectic mix of pattern, textures and stripes, the Retreat collection features a modern take on traditional patterning. The casual luxury of denim hues dominates the group, which includes Versa Indigo, a subtle rib texture in a tone-on-tone coloration. A traditional stripe, Worth Denim, takes on the relaxed appearance of a favorite pair of jeans in varying shades of blue.

Pinnacle Denim dominates the group with its zigzag, quilted appearance in blocks of blue and white. Textural patterns Topstitch Denim and Bellamy Brick feature hand-stitched, embroidered appearances with pops of orange and rust, bringing a warm quality to this overall blue grouping.

Offering a bold contrast to Retreat is Vitality, a collection of subtle neutrals with bright shots of impactful color. Medley Parchment leads the collection with a patchwork-inspired, triangular pattern. Surface interest takes center stage in the soothing neutrals Envision Eggshell and Tucker Papyrus. Playful Bellamy Citrus adds excitement with a new matelassé construction that introduces subtle color. The bright stripe of Sorrento Limelite enlivens the groups, as does the solid rib texture of Versa Limelite. Both fabrics coordinate and complement the solid grouping with their yellow-green influence.

Taking fabric design innovation in yet another color direction is Aurora, which highlights the red/orange color family. Fabrics in this collection are full of ethnic twists on traditional motifs. Mercato Fiesta and Marisol Fiesta lead the group with distressed ikat effects in bold brick and orange hues with white accents. The rib texture of Versa Mesa and Versa Rose provide solid grounding in varying shades of red. Cheerful stripe Sorrento Fiesta brings a celebratory feeling to the collection with pops of orange, pink and green. The matelassé texture of Bellamy Tangelo is accented with orange, picking up the fabric’s softness and whimsical appeal.
