Brentano Green fabrics furnish redesigned Smart Home

Brentano has once again provided eco-fabrics for the interior of the Museum of Science and Industry exhibit Smart Home: Green + Wired, Powered by ComEd. This year's redesigned exhibit maintains the mission of the 2008 Smart Home, but also offers a bolder color scheme, a redesigned use of space, and the latest environmental technologies.

Named "Chicago's Greenest Home," the Smart Home is a free-standing, fully-functioning modular home that showcases the big and small ways to make eco-friendly living part of daily life. The exhibit focuses on environmentally-conscious architecture, practices, technology, and products, including an array of fabrics from the Brentano Green collection of eco-friendly interior textiles.

Smart Home Interior Designer Michele Fitzpatrick, owner of Verde Design Studio, selected several of Brentano's eco-friendly faux leathers for use in the dining room, lounge, and kitchen areas. She said that the home is designed for "an urban family with adventurous tastes," and that the polyurethane-based textiles were not only a durable and sustainable choice for upholstery, but also show that "quality does not have to be expensive." On the second floor, Fitzpatrick selected eco-fabrics with a soft hand to construct tailored bed linens. For the boy's bedroom, she used a saturated teal color of Casita, a 100% post-consumer recycled polyester, while for the master bedroom, she chose an elegant grey eco-wool.

The Smart Home - designed by Michelle Kaufman Designs, built by All American Homes and assembled in the museum's own backyard - is a must see exhibit for anyone who wants their home, and life, to be smarter, more efficient, and more in tune with the environment. The exhibit runs through Jan. 3, 2010, and requires an additional timed-entry ticket.
