Chicago, IL, Residential fabrics get tough in Brentano’s performance-minded Portfolio collection. By combining sophisticated color and a soft hand with durability, these new upholsteries exemplify the Brentano belief in beauty + performance.
The seersucker-inspired stripes of Chantal, the matalassé of Cable Knit, and the luxuriant ombre of Crescendo offer pattern and texture without sacrificing strength. Chantal comes in 9 fresh colorways, including a fashionable lavender and sherbet, while Cable Knit offers 4 cool colors combined with a comfortable hand to create a cozy upholstery. Crescendo builds on the existing Brentano Green collection, using a luminous bamboo-viscose chenille in the weft. And best of all, each of these beautiful upholsteries pass or exceed 50,000 double rubs.
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance.
