Reflecting the current leisure trend of embracing the past, Gradus Fabrics has re-launched its Rushmere Collection, a high quality range of chenille upholstery fabrics to suit specifiers and end users looking for that traditional touch.

One of its best selling ranges, Rushmere has been re-packaged and now features the Haslemere design to meet the specific design demands for the leisure markets and is perfect for creating pubs and bars with individual styling. Rushmere and Haslemere offers contrasting yet complementary designs and colours, and can be combined or used individually to offer comfort and warmth to any surrounding.

Bringing tradition to the forefront, Rushmere is one of Gradus Fabrics most customary collections offering a highly textured fabric that comprises of rococo scrolls, petit fleur and imbelline damask designs. The eight strong colour palette finishing the collection in a range of classically rich, earthy colourways.

In contrast, Haslemere is an understated plain, which brings a hint of modernity to upholstery requirements. Offering a smooth, textured effect created from the use of a secondary backing colour, Haslemere is available in 20 striking and contemporary colours, which can be blended in to a range of interior design schemes.

The pattern book for the Rushmere range has been designed for ease of use. Containing a detachable swatch card on the inside front cover, the new look book provides users with a flexible sampling mechanism and displays a selection of coordinating colours and designs clearly and visibly.

The re-launch of the Gradus Fabrics Collection comes at a time when the leisure industry is looking to move away from big brand pubs and bars and alternatively, seeks to capture a new independent feel. The Rushmere incorporating Haslemere Collection offers supreme aesthetic qualities while its high performance capabilities including high flame retardants and meeting crib 5 standards also ensures its suitability for severe contract usage.
