The Midtown Collection from KnollTextiles

If Midtown suddenly feels a bit more stylish, that’s because of its latest design industry transplant. Designed to commemorate Knoll’s move from Chelsea to Midtown Manhattan late last year, the Midtown Collection features textiles for walls as well as upholstery.

Included are three fabrics from the KT Collection, a group of textiles created for high performance and durability. This includes Journey, an interpretation of a classic bouclé fabric made of 50% recycled polyester; Rush Hour, a subtle texture with a slight figure eight pattern made of 81% polyester and 1% nylon; Tilden, a polyurethane that contains a subtle undulating stripe made with bleach solution cleanable Cleangene technology; and Commuter Cloth, a piece-dyed fabric made of 75% post-consumer recycled content that uses a resist yarn to create a two-toned effect. In addition, there are six new colors available in KnollTextiles’ Ultrasuede fabric made of 80% post-industrial recycled content. Ultrasuede can be used for wallcoverings and wrapped acoustical panels.

The two new wallcoverings include Express, an understated texture made of 78% recycled polyester and 22% polyester with a Crypton wall finish. Transfer uses a sophisticated twist yarn to create an elegant grasscloth-type fabric. It is made of 100% polyester, with a Teflon soil and stain repellent.
