Luxury fabric specialist Kobe UK, is bringing its exciting new Kobe and Essente upholstery collections to the January Furniture Show in Birmingham.
New to the show will be Kobe’s Boutique collection of unique and timeless, 100% natural, curtain and upholstery fabrics, suitable for both domestic and contract use.
A collection where each fabric has an individual identity, this lavish mix of innovative textiles features sumptuous velvet, woven jacquard, cool cotton and soft satin appearance. A palette of rich deep and softly nostalgic tones complements the geometric, floral, paisley and botanical patterns.
From the Essente collection is Cocoon, a soft supple 100% polyester chenille fabric that can be used for both curtains and upholstery and comes in 36 shades. Cocoon is provided with FR domestic back-coat ‘ready to go’ and can be obtained from stock in three days. Further treatment will be available for contract use (Crib 5).
Essente features easy-to-care-for, washable fabrics in a cool linen, soft chenille and silk satin appearance. This natural palette of pastel and neutral tones complements the sophisticated barcode stripe, subtle polka dot, trellis and paisley designs.
Also being unveiled at the show will be Kobe’s Bufera collection, an exciting range specially designed with today’s upholstery in mind. Bufera is a plush chenille woven dobby with a soft luxurious texture. The mix of cotton and viscose yarns is complemented by rich deep shades and a natural palette of pastel and neutral tones.
The 100% natural fabric collection is suitable for both domestic and contract upholstery use, passing all required flame retardant standards. Bufera can be supplied with an Ace treatment which passes domestic and contract upholstery, curtain and bedspread standards. The treatment also offers soil and stain qualities- making this a multipurpose treatment.
Following on from its success at last year’s show will be Kobe’s library of sample books, bringing together timeless designs with an array of textiles. These feature a wide range of colours, textures and patterns, perfect for creating interiors that reflect the latest trends for today’s high-end domestic and contract markets.
The Essente collection benefits from the logistical expertise and quality of Kobe, while giving access to a wider customer base through its realistic price points. The range is suitable for both domestic and commercial installations. All Kobe’s upholstery fabrics offer exceptional durability, scoring highly on the Martindale Rub Test.
Kobe and Essente can be found in Hall 1 at the NEC, Birmingham. Kobe is on C3 and Essente on C4.
