Inspired by American folk artist Vollis Simpson, Mayer Fabrics’ exclusive collection captures the whimsy, joy and intricate designs of Simpson’s work with a new line of Sunbrella® Contract fabrics.
This collection brings new life to commercial spaces by using recurring details in Simpson’s work to uncover the unexpected charm in life’s smallest moments. Available in six designs and a variety of coordinating colorways, the Vollis Simpson collection offers style that’s playful, yet sophisticated. With the unmatched performance of Sunbrella®, these fabrics are ideal for high-traffic areas like children’s hospitals and other healthcare environments, educational facilities and commercial settings. These inspired designs are available with or without a moisture barrier and are all milled in America.
The Vollis Simpson Collection of Sunbrella® Contract fabrics combines design and performance. Fabrics in the Vollis Simpson Collection are made of 100% Sunbrella® acrylic providing fade resistance, easy care and bleach cleanability without compromising softness or luxury. For the interiors market, performance isn’t worth discussing if the fabric isn’t comfortable or attractive. The Vollis Simpson Collection’s design and performance brings the best combination to the commercial marketplace.
