Whether they’re stretched across walls, draped around windows and doors, or upholstered to furniture, textiles can add interest and elegance to indoor and outdoor applications. These six interior fabrics can help designers channel the aesthetic of an earlier decade in contemporary hues, as well as inject an element of high design and eco-consciousness into public spaces.

Biobased Xorel, Carnegie

Biobased Xorel contains up to 85% plant-based content derived from sugar cane while retaining the performance and appearance of the original Xorel textile from Carnegie. It is suited for use in wallcoverings, panels, or upholstery, and can be used to earn LEED credits for commercial interiors in the categories of Rapidly Renewable Content, Indoor Air Quality, Material Transparency, and Material Optimization. A proprietary X-Protext backing enables it to be cleaned with a range of cleaning products, including diluted bleach. The collection’s six designs are available in 91 colorways. carnegiefabrics.com

Williamsburg III, Robert Allen

Textile designer Robert Allen grew its Williamsburg line to include a collection of classic embroideries, laces, and linen prints inspired by the design styles of 18th-century colonial America. Williamsburg III offers a fresh look at the signature colors and patterns popular during the historical period with a saturated palette and designs that pair the hues for use in contemporary interior applications. Among the collection’s 10 patterns are paisley, floral, and geometric designs, (Market Square, shown) each available in multiple colorways. robertallendesign.com

Primal and Remix, Brentano

Primal and Remix are made of Brentano’s polyurethane, which is degradable, does not require plasticizers, and doesn’t contain chloride, making it a green alternative to PVC vinyl. Primal’s animal-print pattern is available in eight colors in 54”-wide rolls. It is suitable for hospitality applications. Designed for nightclubs and restaurants, Remix, shown, simulates a woven texture and comes in 10 colorways, each 54” wide. Both are part of the company’s Symphonic collection. brentanofabrics.com

Ultraleather Pro, Ultrafabrics

Leather’s luxurious look often is not practical in high-traffic commercial applications. Ultraleather Pro from Ultrafabrics is a leather imitation made of polyurethane fabric. It is designed to resist stains such as those produced by most ballpoint inks, red wine, and mustard. It is certified by the EPA for its silver-based antimicrobial properties and is also Greenguard certified. The collection is offered in 24 colors and has a high abrasion resistance. ultrafabricsllc.com

Wild America, Pallas Textiles

Marked by technological advances, artistic experimentation, and civic awareness, the 1960s remains a point of cultural reference. Pallas Textiles seeks to rekindle the spirit of that decade with its Wild America collection. The textile collection’s five patterns reference objects and themes central to the decade. For example, Modern Blaze is informed by the geometric patterns of ’60s fashion, and Halftone’s (Berry Pie, shown) pop-art styling is shaped by dots of multiple sizes and spacings. Modern Blaze and Halftone contain 25% post-consumer recycled polyester and are available in 10 and 11 colorways, respectively. pallastextiles.com
