This week I attended an excellent presentation at The Robert Allen Duralee Group’s newly renovated Long Island showroom, introducing their new collection of home decor fabrics. It was refreshing to see the direction their fabrics are taking for 2020. With Robert Allen and Duralee’s merger, they promised innovative, beautiful products, and with these new collections, they delivered!


Expect Bold Color in Home Decor Fabrics

The Robert Allen Duralee Group felt the world was ready for bold color. Specifically, the colors they named, Tomato, Azure, and Aqua. Bold color is quite a contrast to past trends that we have become accustomed to.

How did we go from gray, beige, and white to highly saturated bold colors? The Robert Allen Duralee Group looks to fashion, social media, and travel trends for inspiration. People are traveling to places that they have not gone to traditionally, such as South and Central America. The bold colors and prints are a direct influence of these travel spots.
The color Tomato was inspired by henna and saffron. Azure is a color that came from the cobalt blues found in South American pottery. Lagoons and serenity inspired the color Agua.

Expect Lively Prints in Home Decor Fabrics

The new fabric collections contain a variety of brightly colored large-scale prints. These prints, like the new color palette, are inspired by Central and South American design, another result of recent travel trends. Interior Design had become so serious for a while. It is refreshing to see a shift towards playful and whimsy decor.

Expect to see More Texture in Fabrics

The Robert Allen Duralee Group payed attention to how fabrics feel in addition to how they look. Recognizing the importance of the tactile sense of touch, the new collections offer a variety of textures. Texture adds dimension to a room. Incorporating different textures makes a room more interesting.

Expect to see Menswear Inspired Fabrics

Highland Court’s new collection “Sula” was inspired by menswear. This luxury outdoor fabric collection has Faux wool, and faux mohair in Menswear inspired fabrics.


Expect to see Outdoor Fabrics Made in Indoor Color Palettes

Fabrics made to be used outside are very durable. They are fade resistant and liquids bead up and roll off them making the fabrics stain resistant. Because of their durability designers have been using them for indoor furniture too. Recognizing this trend, RADG has introduced outdoor fabrics made in indoor colors. There is even velvet in this collection!

The new fabric collections have something for everyone. Traditional, transitional, and contemporary design styles are all well represented. Soft neutrals for those who prefer a quiet palette are still in abundance. However, those who are looking to liven things up will be ecstatic with the newly introduced fabrics boasting bold color and lively prints.
