-- As a color leader, Brentano takes special care to cover the basics and include the classics, but also to introduce fresh, new shades. With their Gallery collection, they focused on introducing clear, primary colors in a variety of textiles. What better time to introduce true red, yellow, and blue than in a collection inspired completely by the work of artists who use these basic building blocks to create masterpieces?
In the sumptuous mohair Tamara, primary colors are shown in rich shades of Gilt, Sapphire, and Cupid’s Bow. Mix variations of those hues together and you end up with the saturated jewel tones Emerald, Kizette, and Vin Rouge. The ultra-luxurious hand, opulent colors, and unique pattern reminiscent of mink fur combine for an extravagant sense of drama, making Tamara perfect for high-end interiors searching for something truly special. Exceeds 100,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010, Brentano continues to offer a variety of innovative and interesting textiles, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
