Last week I was asked to quote for a 2-seater Jig High Settee to be used in a school common room. The client asked if it was hard wearing as it would have lots of teenagers jumping on and off it. As the Jig High Settee has a solid oak frame and a 5-year structural warranty I confirmed that I would thoroughly recommend it.
In order for me to price it up I had to recommend a fabric that would be suitable for use in such a challenging environment. The fabric had to be:
I am sure we have all seen and felt the old, traditional vinyl. A slippery, shiny, plain surface usually in a shade of brown or black, with the uncanny ability to stick to any uncovered flesh that comes into contact with it. Well, the new Manila vinyl comes in a palette of 18 shades which range from delicate, light tones up to bright, vibrant colours. They all feature a textured design that mimics the look of a woven fabric, along with a subtle grain that adds interest and relief which helps to break up the colour.
The good news is that Manila is a mid-price range fabric so it will not break the bank no matter which piece of office or breakout furniture it is specified on. And, as it is hard-wearing, stain repellent and cleanable your office furniture will look better, for longer.
