Office Insight's Mallory Jindra shines a spotlight on Carnegie's textiles at Neocon 2016.



Carnegie’s prolific work in cutting edge, sustainability-minded textiles is impressive, and this year is no different. When asked for preview of the brand’s newest releases at NeoCon, and a sense of where the brand is heading in the future, President Cliff Goldman said, “We’re finding a big gap in the information textile companies currently share with designers, and we want to give designers the opportunity to learn more about the fabrication of the textiles. We want to give a lot more information and a lot more creative inspiration to designers who want to use our fabrics."

As a part of that effort, Carnegie collaborated with window fashions maker and designer Erik Bruce to create a Neocon installation. The collaboration aimed to shed light on the possibilities in creating artfulness at the window, with a focus on beautiful textiles combined with stunning craftsmanship.

“Each Carnegie fabric has been given an artisanal touch from Bruce, whether it be hand-pulled edges for fringe-like detail, colorful netting layers with un-cut edges or incorporation of other materials such as metals and zippers.”



Erik Bruce Fabrik and Carnegie will continue to work together to debut a collection of beautiful commercial window treatments in the fall of 2016.

Other highlights from Carnegie at Neocon 2016:

High Performance Wallcoverings: Carnegie has a long history in textile wallcoverings, and its expert focus on high performance wallcoverings gets more precise as the years go by. Carnegie debuted new additions to the industry-leading Xorel, Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO), and Durable Wovens lines.



“These technologies are not brand new from us, but we’re doing so much to improve the aesthetic of these fabrics,” said Carnegie Fabrics President Cliff Goldman. “We’re doing more creative things with the polymers.”

Atmospheres: Atmospheres, by Creation Baumann of Switzerland, is a new window coverings collection with excellent tech built into the designs. Features include sound and light control, and heat and glare reduction. The textiles include a mixture of metalized (aluminum) yarns, mesh-like knits, and more.
