More about this product

Designtex’s upholstery offerings are created with an eye towards both performance and aesthetics, providing a wide selection of solutions to suit any environment.

Woven High Performance
Designers often struggle to find material solutions that can meet the growing demands of high performance environments, such as healthcare, education and transportation. Designtex high performance products address applications that see 24/7 use and require material compositions that can be cleaned and maintained using aggressive methods.

Coated High Performance
Many healthcare facilities have mandated the use of coated materials in acute applications such as patient rooms, nursing stations and visitor areas on the patient floor. This decision has been made to mitigate the possibility of hospital-acquired illnesses. These fabrics can be cleaned and disinfected repeatedly using phenols, quaternary, bleach and alcohol cleaners. These styles are also widely used in education, transportation, hospitality and corporate environments—any place that needs a high performance, cleanable solution.

Designtex belief is that beauty is as important as performance. Of course, these textiles all meet heavy duty contract specs as well, so they are both smart and beautiful.

These textiles are called “luxe for less”: they deliver luxurious texture for a low cost and are particularly well-suited to hospitality and corporate environments that are budget sensitive.

Designtex digitally printed upholsteries showcase the range of effects available through digital printing technology, juxtaposing large-scale pattern and an unlimited color palette with the subtlety of fine line-work and the rich tactility of textured substrates.

While Designtex strives to improve the environmental profile of every product they make, these textiles offer unique and innovative sustainable options. Each textile in this group has an optimized supply chain and rigorously reviewed chemistry.
