Sunbrella fabrics by Joe Ruggiero celebrate American motifs
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, April 6, 2012
High Point, N.C. - Home décor designer Joe Ruggiero found inspiration closer to home for his new Sunbrella fabrics, set to debut in the Miles Talbott Showroom at the High Point Market, April 21-26.
"These new fabrics capture the spirit of some of my favorite metropolitan areas in the U.S.," Ruggiero said. "America has so many inspiring locales that we have reflected in the designs, colors and naming for our spring market collection."
Four new fabric groups will be launched in the Miles Talbott showroom during High Point Market later this month.
The new Brentwood Group, named for the celebrity enclave of Los Angeles, features Ruggiero's soft mist colors in a monotone palette.
Sutton Place was inspired by the Manhattan neighborhood of the same name on the East River and features the pattern Venice Dove, which is a window pane design that incorporates a tie-dyed effect.
Harbor Springs references Michigan's north shore. The Sax herringbone pattern reappears in this group in the color Denim, featuring accents of orange and yellow stitching for a jeans-like aesthetic.
Pacific Heights, known for beautiful homes overlooking San Francisco Bay, is the name of the fourth group. Patterns include Sax Charcoal and Caravan Fossil.
"Joe's fabrics this market combine an American spirit theme with the ‘power neutrals' that have made his collection so important to Miles Talbott and our customers," said George Jordan, president of Miles Talbott.
