Robin Bruce offers upholstery in tinted neutral to deep jewels

Home furnishings décor trends for early 2009 will revolve around two fundamental concepts: Purity and Forbidden. The color and texture of fabrics will offer a range of Tinted Neutral to Deep Jewels textiles with both simplicity and boldness.

Rowe Fine Furniture, the manufacturer of the Robin Bruce collection of upholstered furniture, has worked with trend expert, Mr. Kai Chow for several years to tap into global apparel trends and with Kai's insight, the Robin Bruce collections for early '09 are a natural evolution from global apparel trends.

Purity: Tinted Neutral
The emerging trend for early '09 of Tinted Neutral is best described as a search for a pure, soft aesthetic. Ninety natural fiber fabrics, including eight new certified organic cottons, are the foundation of this trend. The colors range from pure white to creamy vanilla to barely blue and natural ecru. A washed, soft hand to the fabrics add a pleasing touch to compliment the lightness in color. Floral patterns are more in silhouette and contemporary.

Forbidden: Deep Jewels
Simultaneously, early '09 trends point to a desire for more Deep Jewels epitomized by richer colors and handcrafted textures. Asian and Far Eastern influences are noticeable and a bold approach to pattern is desired. Colors range from rich reds and golds to accents of black and intense blues. Such home décor statements create iconic pieces in a room setting rather than a more harmonious tonal palette.

These seemingly contrasting trends both point to a desire to define home furnishings with more fashion sensibility. The Robin Bruce collection was conceived as a custom upholstery line of furniture to allow consumers to explore, imagine and create unique home environments.

Kai Chow is an industry-wide authority with a prestigious background. Originally from Hong Kong, Kai developed his career in Paris, London and New York as he designed high-end apparel and accessories. In 1983, he joined Here & There, a leader in fashion intelligence and forecasting and began to provide clients with color, lifestyle, fabric and print forecasts. In 1994, Kai assumed the role of President for Here & There and in 2006, he joined The Doneger Group where he is currently a Creative Director.

Robin Bruce offers a distinctive, designer's approach to custom upholstered furniture with a selection of over 200 fabrics. Robin Bruce is manufactured by Rowe Fine Furniture, Inc., a leader in custom upholstered furniture in the United States. Established in 1946, Rowe offers a wide range of styling in sofas, sectionals, chairs and ottomans with hundreds of fabric selections.

The Rowe portfolio of brands includes Rowe, Clayton Marcus and Robin Bruce. Robin Bruce is available at major home furnishings retailers and better independent home furnishings retailers across the United States and around the world.
