Perennials by Vincent Van Duysen is our brand new collaboration with Perennials Fabrics and Rugs. Already a designer-in-residence at sister brand Sutherland Furniture, Vincent and team have collaborated with Perennials on a tactile and refined collection of 100% solution dyed performance fabrics and rugs. Perennials by Vincent Van Duysen includes eight new fabric qualities – Workhorse, Caravan, Dotty, Canal Stripe, Rugged Stripe, Heirloom, Flanders, Shearling – alongside three new colorways: Cadet, Rusty, and Prussian. The collection also introduces six rug designs with exciting new constructions: Tartan, Tricot, Needlepoint, Sabbia, Linea, and Terra.Outdoor fabric collectionThe range was born out of the idea to embed the mood of Vincent's house in Antwerp into the textiles. We literally toured the place gathering textures, tactility, moods and tones. The outcome is an eclectic mix of fabrics deriving not only from Vincent's diverse influences and travels, but also from the choice of unexpected and diverse patterns. The range aims at instilling a sense of home and coziness to outdoor environments.RugsWith the rugs, Vincent wanted to embed the tribal world and its artisanry into the collection. We were able to use a particular fabric that can be used outdoors as well as indoors while at the same time maintaining the natural look and feel of natural fibers. The collection is also very versatile with different types of weaves and piles.
