Robert Allen Contract presents Luxe Natural, a NEW collection inspired by the maker movement, a trend that embraces the artisanal craftsmanship found in hammered metals, ceramic surfaces and handmade textiles. Patterns in the collection draw influence from organic motifs and mimic the look and feel of fabrics composed of natural materials like wool, linen and alpaca—all while sporting the durability of high-performance contract fibers. Fabrics range from silky, metallic sheens with textural looks to large-scale spiraled designs and patterns that resemble animal skins. Colors are influenced by those found in raw or hand-forged materials, and range from warm greys to earthy browns and subtle rusts.
Inspired by the authenticity of natural materials, the lively markings found in African textiles and the relaxed sophistication of residential design, 701 Decorative Sheers III from Robert Allen Contract brings the worldly look of a globetrotter’s home to the contract space. This NEW collection offers 65 gauzy new looks filled with neutral colors, such as soft greys, creams and blues. Patterns are organic in nature and skew geometric or loosely striated. Produced with high-performance materials, these elegant window treatments are inherently durable and undeniably stylish.
Robert Allen Contract expands its line of exceptional basics with Solid Textures IV, a new collection from that delivers even more high-performance staples. Inspired by the authentic beauty of handmade textiles, these fabrics embody the intrinsic textural interest of organic materials like wool, linen and alpaca, and come in fashionable trend-right colors like muted greys, inky blues and rich browns. But don’t let their natural look and feel fool you. They are produced of hardy fibers that can stand up to the wear and tear of high traffic areas.
