Designers Select: Fabric_02 FilzFelt_Felt "This line provides an instant update to a classic material with the variety of striking color options," says Caponi. "With several thicknesses, this felt transcends furniture to walls and floors."
Designers Select: Fabric_03 Textus_Gradient "I would love to use this on the back of a banquette—the gradation creates soft movement," Caponi says.
Designers Select: Fabric_04 HBFT_StencilOrange "It's a fun, large-scale that goes from mild to bold color combinations," Caponi says.

Senior Designer
Designers Select: Fabric_06 KnollTextiles_Tryst "This is wonderfully fun and playful, as though it is a sequined expanse when on a lounge piece," Delano says. "Everyone at NeoCon® had to touch it when they walked by—when designers can't stop staring and touching a product, it's a sign of success."
Designers Select: Fabric_07 Designtex_Tesselate "The visual and physical textures possible with an epingle cannot be beat," Delano says. "This one has a luxurious feel and look in colors more complex than a bright solid yet can still energize a space." 
Designers Select: Fabric_08 Dots_Damask "Dots Damask has a neat trick up its sleeve: Viewed from a distance, it appears to be a traditional damask, but as you get closer it reveals itself as a very modern dot pattern and the damask disappears," Delano says.

Designers Select: Fabric_10 Carnegie_Heritage "A combination of pattern and texture gives this herringbone such intensity. It's a very hearty product, and the pattern is actually stitched rather than printed—almost like knitting. Feel that?" Cherry asks. "The hand is nice."
Designers Select: Fabric_11 Maharam_DeconstructedRose "I think of it as a modern interpretation of grandma's sofa. Up close it looks like pixels, but stand back and it's a large-scale rose pattern. It's a beautiful marriage of contemporary abstraction and traditional needlepoint," Cherry says.
Designers Select: Fabric_12 ColoPlaid "A reissue of Alexander Girard's vintage prints, it's a gingham design that feels very fresh. The beauty of it is its large scale, which means if you upholster four chairs with it, each will have a different look," says Cherry.
