Carnegie has added three new designs inspired by classic Hollywood stars to its line of polyurethane upholstery: Bardot, Hepburn, and Monroe. Versatile, durable, and as easy to clean as vinyl, the collection is suitable for healthcare, hospitality, and retail applications; does not contain antimony, heavy metals, or phthalate; and has low VOCs. Of the water and raw materials used in its production, 99% are recycled. Each design comes in 54" widths with a 100% knit polyester back. Bardot has a subtle metallic sheen and comes in five colors. Monroe features a bold palette in six standard colors and has a reflective surface. Mimicking classic leather, Hepburn comes in 15 colors. carnegiefabrics.com
