The Texas-based company Perennials Fabrics and Rugs, a leader in the international sector of design, luxury fabrics and accessories, has chosen the Monaco Yacht Show to present its latest project, the collection of fabrics (plus one carpet) designed by the British studio Bannenberg & Rowell, specialized in the design of superyachts and heir to the legendary studio of Jon Bannenberg, founded in London in the early 1960s and famous for its innovative approach.
On the Grid
Perennials by Bannenberg & Rowell is a narrative of style organized in three different, complementary interpretations, in terms of colors and taste. Vertex is a sophisticated, soft herringbone motif, offered in a range of warm neutral colors and a blue series, the hue that sets the tone of the collection. Atomic has a pattern of micro-dots that form a grid of diamonds, a pattern that seems to have been borrowed from chic neckwear, in five shades that are perfect for indoor and outdoor use. Finally, On the Grid is a multicolored chenille in different shadings that intertwine to create a geometric pattern that is rigorous and soft at the same time: a game of interactions expressed in subtle color combinations (as in the range of pale natural tones) or more forceful ones, still with marine references (greens, blues, sand tones).
The collection also contains the Waves carpet, knotted by hand with the Tibetan technique, with a slight relief effect that adds dynamism to the surface. Like all the Perennials carpets, Waves can be completely personalized in terms of color and size, depending on the project, with the possibility of choosing from a range of over 5000 colors, for indoor or outdoor settings. All the fabrics and carpets by Perennials, including those in this collection, are made with the finest batch-dyed 100% acrylic yarns, making them resistant to fading, mildew and UV rays. The creations of Perennials are tested and certified to meet strict industry standards, and stand up to grime, water, wear and abrasion. They are easy to care for and can be cleaned with bleach.
“We’ve worked with David, Ann and the Sutherland team for many years designing, customizing and specifying furniture and fabric from their ever-expanding range,” says Simon Rowell, Creative Director, Bannenberg & Rowell. “So collaboration on a brand new product range was a natural and rewarding evolution of our relationship.”
“Showing at Monaco Yacht Show since 2010, our brands Sutherland Furniture and Perennials Luxury Performance Fabrics have always taken cues from superyacht design,” says Ann Sutherland, co-founder and CEO.
“The impetus for Perennials Rugs was the desire from yacht designers for our signature luxury performance underfoot. So this collaboration is quite the ‘full circle’ moment. We are thrilled to share Dickie Bannenberg and Simon Rowell’s dynamic designs with our clients.”
