Continuing to draw inspiration from his global travels and lifelong interests in art and fashion, Joe Ruggiero has interpreted new designs in a colorful array of Sunbrella fabrics for  December Showtime in High Point.

From the silhouetted florals prominent on the runways in Milan and New York to traditional Amish and American quilts, Ruggiero is once again expanding the horizons of home décor. 

“Inspiration is everywhere – from the small stitching of an antique quilt to the fine pinstripes of a well-tailored suit,” said Ruggiero, whose extensive portfolio of work includes product design for furniture, fabrics and artwork as well as a career in TV and print journalism. 

“Whether I’m in America or traveling abroad, I’m always aware of the vast array of fashion and art that permeates our culture and inspires us every day.” 

Four new Sunbrella fabric collections by Joe Ruggiero will be shown during Showtime and reflect the design inspiration behind his ideas – Suiting, Country Color, Exotic and Flower Garden. The collections are overflowing with elegant, livable colors and soft neutrals that enhance a room or furniture grouping rather than overwhelm it.

“The story of my Showtime fabrics is the unique combination of soft textures and livable colors,” Ruggiero said. “I always design fabrics with furniture frames in mind, thinking of contours, welting and other design details. The obvious genius of Sunbrella fabrics, besides their durability, is the beautiful way they adapt for a wide variety of upholstery applications.”

Suiting

Based on Ruggiero’s popular fabric interpretations of menswear, the Suiting collection exudes a masculine quality that resonates with today’s home décor enthusiasts.

The fabrics in this collection combine subtle color with soft textures reminiscent of apparel fabrics. The classic Hopsock, available in Beige, Grey, Chestnut, Classic, Black, Leaf, Pumpkin and Taupe, grounds the collection and offers a subtle texture ideal for a base cloth.

Hand Stitch has a handmade look to its unique stripe design and is available in Seaglass, Sangria, Wren, Indigo and Black. Suiting, a tailored, subtle herringbone stripe is offered in a unique range of Grey, Slate, Wheat, Rose and Indigo. The collection is rounded out by Luke, a subtle tone-on-tone stripe offered in Salt, Dove, Beige and Sand.
