Brentano’s Spring 2012 Collection

When the Brentano sales team said clients were seeking a sophisticated and graphic outdoor upholstery, the Design Studio decided to rework their successful pattern, Dahlia. They knew they would need to alter the weave to create a textile that could stand up to the elements, and as a color leader, they are always aware of the necessity of offering both classic hues and fresh shades. 

In response to these requests, Brentano created Zinnia, an outdoor upholstery that maintains the Japanese stencil-inspired, botanical pattern of Dahlia but re-imagines the weave for outdoor requirements and re-colors it to create fresh options perfect for outdoor applications. Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, Zinnia meets contract performance standards at 30,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).  It also offers strong lightfastness and has both Teflon and antibacterial finishes.  Available in 9 colors ranging from classic neutrals, like Dreamland and Aztec, to the established blue of Art Deco, to the bold and fun Sunbow and Peppermint Stick.
