Julie Smith Vincenti reports that blues and grays were top color choices at NeoCon, the annual commercial furnishings show held each June at Chicago’s The Merchandise Mart. But aquas were spotted in many NeoCon showrooms this summer, as well, appearing in fabrics and furnishings.
Loop to Loop, a recycled fabric collection launched through the joint efforts of Steelcase, Designtex, Victor and Unifi, was unveiled in aqua, gray, white and yellow color ways. Meanwhile, Bumpy and Smooth, both bleach-cleanable contract textiles from HBF Textiles, offered three-dimensional, recycled texture in watery blues.
