At the Atlanta Market in July, Kevin O’Brien Studio, a Philadelphia-based luxury textile brand, previewed a new line of outdoor fabrics made of durable, stain-resistant and fade-resistant performance fabrics.
Manufactured domestically by Valdese Weavers through its InsideOutside Performance Fabrics brand in Valdese, North Carolina, the fabrics are cut and sewn in-house by KOBS.
The fabrics are available as yardage (for indoor/outdoor upholstery) and, this fall, KOBS is introducing finished decorative pillows. The initial fabric collection includes five original patterns and neutral colorways the company says are “designed to look fresh yet feel familiar.”
“We took our style sense and added some sunblock to it,” says Angela Vosburgh, KOBS chief operating officer and creative director. “Our customers have been asking us for a way to reimagine our unique aesthetic for outdoor decor. We’re delivering on that demand with an unparalleled collection that fills a void in the marketplace – soft luxury fabrics with an incredible hand, inviting texture and sophisticated design.”
