| New York, NY - August 12, 2020 | Wolf-Gordon releases a timely update to their Woven Upholstery collection that features enhanced durability and colorfastness: Roy, Screen and Score. The three patterns are presented in complementary scales and colors that are easily combined on modular furniture, providing designers the opportunity to respond deftly to shifting distance and capacity requirements.
Roy, Screen, and Score are designed to meet the demands of a new wave of modular seating that relies on fabrics with increased durability while not sacrificing sophisticated color and luxurious hand.

Designed for comfort with a high loft, the three patterns have added dimensionality from two tone weaves. The luxurious texture and eye-catching movement of these woven fabrics will stand out at a distance and up close in workplace, education and beyond. The polyester blend constructions are highly durable and feature a stain repellent finish, with Roy and Screen at 100k double rubs, and Score at 190k double rubs.
Roy and Screen are also approved for use on wrapped panel applications. This allows for superior noise reduction in active environments, especially useful for room dividers in large, open spaces such as offices and classrooms. Sophisticated white and neutral colorways were included in these patterns in order to accommodate vertical applications.
Roy: A zig-zag design that is the largest in scale of the three, Roy is an updated matelassé with a thick padded look and the feel of a cottony quilt, but without any padding or surface stitching. Well suited to the geometric and curvy forms seen in contemporary seating, seven bold piece-dyed colorways are featured.
Screen: Screen is a medium-scale pattern with an irregular raised grid suggestive of the negative and positive spaces of a room divider or window screen, with a soft cottony texture that offers a mid-scale companion to Roy and Score. Consistent with the current trend of mixing and matching fabrics, Screen’s colorways can coordinate or contrast with each other and those of Roy and Score.
Score: Simple, functional and fun, Score is the smallest scale pattern among its coordinates, and has a cottony feel and versatile color palette. By combining virgin polyester and post-consumer recycled polyester yarns in the weave, different colors are achieved when piece-dyeing, giving added dimension to the pattern.
