Whether dealing with a restaurant, a hotel or offices, design solutions for contract areas have as their goal the fusion of painstakingly tasteful decoration with an environment that signals the philosophy and values of the business. For this reason, the most highly-regarded textile manufacturers strive to develop fabrics with fashionable patterns, prints and colours, which also meet the needs of those areas, that is to say, they must be hard-wearing and practical.
Gancedo is one of those firms and our latest collections of contract fabrics are proof of this: voiles, fabrics, upholstery, rugs, throws…an enormous variety of articles designed to promote up-to-the-minute practical projects with their own personality. What’s more, 2018 marks the start of the Gancedo Contract Year: never before have we had such a number of collections designed specifically for this market.
In the Contract sector, the regulations governing the use of approved materials are extremely stringent. This is why, in our country, vertical hangings must be Class I; in other words self-extinguishing curtains, voiles, blackouts, wallpapers and fabrics which will not spread the flames in case of fire. These flame-retardant fabrics must also be extremely hard-wearing and easy to maintain. For this reason, it is vital to work with companies whose products will guarantee the best results.
Gancedo Contract voiles come in flame-retardant 100% FR Trevira or Polyester, textured, embossed, with geometrical patterns, metallic, 3D-effect, open-weave, in linen and voile effect finishes…In a range of colours perfect for hotels: whites and ecrus, but also blues, greens and greys, understated shades which are easy to mix and match.
Flame-retardant fabrics for outdoors
A few years ago the range of flame-retardant fabrics was quite limited, so much so that in many cases interior designers would choose normal fabrics which were then treated to render them flame-retardant. Nowadays, the outlook is quite different. Interior design professionals can opt for flame-retardant fabrics in a wide choice of designs not only for indoor use, but also for outdoors. Ideal for terraces and solariums in hotels and restaurants.
Gancedo’s Nautica Collection includes Class 1 flame-retardant outdoor fabrics, a great technological advance, since it is the first time we have offered a fabric which is both suitable for outdoor use and flame-retardant. Moreover, the patterns will suit any design scheme, since they feature New England Cape Cod-style stripes, solid colours and jacquards, pristine sailor stripes, solid colours in rich textures and jacquards with small necktie patterns.
Upholstery and curtains
At Gancedo we have our own design studios and workshops, all of which allows us to offer a wide variety of designs in many different prints.
One of our latest design suggestions is the New York Collection which, following the latest trends, opts for geometrical prints both for upholstering and curtain-making. The fabrics in this collection are produced using a flame-retardant faux linen yarn. They are long-lasting and practical and come in fade resistant colours. The fabrics in the New York collection are available in bright colours: pink, mauve, navy blue, indigo, grey, sea-green and apple green…They also come in doublewidth, perfect for curtains.
Rugs and throws
Likewise, when it comes to floor coverings, Gancedo offers designs which, as well as supplying warmth and comfort, provide a modern, up-to-the-minute alternative to traditional plain fabrics. The best example is our Polinesia Rug Collection. These are for outdoor use and inspired by the paintings of Gauguin, with geometrical designs, abstract stripes and zigzags, the predominant colours being red, yellow and blue.
Nor have we forgotten those other soft furnishing items which are so important when it comes to personalising and bringing rooms to life. Our Amazónica throws are knitted, washable and available in abstract foliage and ethnic patterns.
