Textiles: Carnegie: Modern VintageThe Modern Vintage Collection of upholstery textiles from Carnegie provides an updated take on classic designs. Inspired by fabrics found at flea markets, many of which were made at a time when intricate details were stitched by hand, the six styles in the collection offer a fresh look with all the high-performance features that are expected of a modern textile. Maxwell Street (top) is Carnegie’s interpretation of traditional tapestry technique. The fill-faced structure hides the warp threads, allowing for the clustered hexagon pattern to have a crisp look that brings out its vibrant colors.
Brimfield (above) offers a whimsical, larger-scaled pattern with a subtle ombre effect on a textured background, and is made with Bella-Dura fiber in a closed loop-recycling stream.
The collection features several indoor/outdoor styles including Camden (above), a bold geometric Sunbrella Contract fabric inspired by the shape of vintage clocks and snowshoes, and made in a zero landfill plant.
The styles in the collection are named after famous flea markets around the world, and also include the dynamically textured Brick Lane, the soft, heathered Chelsea, and the nuanced Vintage, which features a multicolored warp that weaves through a chenille fill. carnegiefabrics.com
