Shape, Line & Color yields Silver Award for Stinson in Best of NeoCon

by Eileen McMorrow, Director, Best of NeoCon

A master class in the elements of design with a modern point of view, Shape, Line & Color from Stinson offers ten high-performance patterns ranging from large-scale, brightly colored geometrics to sophisticated textures. The fabrics in Shape, Line & Color can provide a welcoming, textural anchor in a space or a dramatic center point of any environment.

Geometry clicks into place with snappy colors in Formation, a cell-weave construction that gathers filling yarns to create a grid effect while using 50% post-consumer recycled polyester.

All fabrics in the collection, 86 colorways across 10 patterns, are GREENGUARD Gold Certified and do not contain PFAS. Feature patterns Collage, Formation and Abstract are constructed using post-consumer recycled polyester and are produced in the U.S. helping to minimize carbon footprint. In addition, they are certified for California Proposition 65, Clean Air/Clean Air Gold, Martindale and Wyzenbeek.

The Best of NeoCon 2023 Silver Award for upholstery textiles was well-received by the jurors who collectively observed Shape, Line & Color’s great design process and many applicable colorways. “This is a fun and vibrant palette with a variety of patterns to support myriad design styles. I enjoyed learning about the art behind the patterns. The collection could inject some fun in a space,” commented one juror.

Collage has giant rectangles of pure color, varying saturation, and transparency that overlap creating a statement piece for any environment while offering 44% post-consumer recycled polyester.

Shape, Line & Color are designed with built-in textile performance attributes that make a difference in commercial environments. From seating for an office to lounge furniture in an educational project and anywhere in between, this group of bold and sophisticated textiles can be used effectively to create beautiful, durable spaces. “This collection is versatile and has a great variety of staples and bold patterns. It has a great sustainability story, and the palette overall is very versatile,” said another juror.

All Shape, Line & Color textiles are durable and exceed industry performance criteria for abrasion, break strength, seam slippage, colorfastness to light, crocking and pilling. Abstract, Apprentice, Cityscape, Collage, Dynamic, Formation and Soft Spot are bleach solution-cleanable.
Dynamic is an avant-garde pattern of parallel, multicolored lines twisting and turning across the surface while Apprentice offers twisting yarns in the warp and weft direction that mingle together in a woven texture.

The patterns are creative and fun colorways are very usable. The dimensionality of weave construction is nice,” noted a juror.
