Perennials and Sutherland – the group specialized in premium design based in Dallas, Texas, comprised of the Perennials brand of fabrics and carpets, and the Sutherland brand of outdoor furnishings – takes part in Milano Design Week 2021 by showing products in the group show “Palazzo delle Meraviglie” at Museo Bagatti Valsecchi.
This marks the debut of the collaboration between the group and the designer Vincent Van Duysen, who has created the Perennials collection of fabrics and carpets for the brand Perennials Fabrics and Rugs. The collection offers eight new fabrics – Workhorse, Caravan, Dotty, Canal Stripe, Rugged Stripe, Heirloom, Flanders and Shearling – while adding three new colors to the range: Cadet, Rusty and Prussian. The line also includes six rugs featuring remarkable construction: Tartan, Tricot, Needlepoint, Sabbia, Linea and Terra.
“The collection I have created for Perennials is an eclectic mixture of fabrics, into which I have shifted my various influences and inspirations from travels. At the same time, it is a set of unexpected, unique patterns,” Vincent Van Duysen says. “The aim was to transmit a sense of domestic intimacy, also in outdoor settings.”
The designer has also contributed Franck Modular for the Sutherland brand, a development of the Franck outdoor furnishings made in teak in 2018. New types of modules now expand the collection, which thus becomes even more versatile.
