Gradus Fabrics has launched Finesse, a new fully coordinated soft furnishing and upholstery fabric collection, designed to complement interiors within the hospitality sector.

Finesse comprises four printed designs and three woven options and aesthetics are at the forefront of the new collection, with the classic designs, mixed with a contemporary colour palette, specifically selected for hotels and accommodation establishments.

The sophisticated printed designs are available on a textured slub Trevira CS base cloth as well as other polyester base and specialist cloths and include: • Botanica – a classical floral stem design • Rococo – a damask scroll design, available in two options – tone on tone or accent colour • Chambray - a textural check • Acacia – a simple strapwork design

The three woven products are available in the following forms: • Alsace – a jacquard Stripe – available in two colour options – a natural or dark colour scheme, both woven in Trevira CS • Geneva - a natural check design with accent stripes - a composition of cotton, nylon and kanecaron

Both options are available in a choice of eight contemporary colour palettes ranging from soft tones such as coral and willow, to the rich opulent shades of aubergine and claret, through to smooth mocha. The new collection is ideal for refurbishment projects in buildings, which want to retain classic features but add a contemporary twist, to provide a stylish and comfortable environment for customers.

The aesthetically pleasing collection also combines functionality and the new fabrics meet the required flammability and durability standards for the contract market, offering a high performance solution for the demanding hospitality industry.
