Ruggiero offers new Sunbrella fabrics at Showtime
David Perry -- Furniture Today, December 9, 2013
High Point, N.C. - Continuing to draw inspiration from his global travels and lifelong interests in art and fashion, Joe Ruggiero has interpreted new designs in a colorful array of Sunbrella fabrics for the Dec. 8-11 Showtime fabric show in High Point.
"Inspiration is everywhere - from the small stitching of an antique quilt to the fine pinstripes of a well-tailored suit," said Ruggiero. "Whether I'm in America or traveling abroad, I'm always aware of the vast array of fashion and art that permeates our culture and inspires us every day."
Four new Sunbrella fabric collections by Ruggiero are on display here - Suiting, Country Color, Exotic and Flower Garden.
"The story of my Showtime fabrics is the unique combination of soft textures and livable colors," Ruggiero said. "I always design fabrics with furniture frames in mind, thinking of contours, welting and other design details. The obvious genius of Sunbrella fabrics, besides their durability, is the beautiful way they adapt for a wide variety of upholstery applications."
