Charles Parsons Interiors is a family owned and operated company established in 1915. Its brand is one consistent with quality and longevity.
Last year the company celebrated its centenary and all the diversification that has come with its start in textiles, beginning in men’s suiting. Through the years Charles Parsons has extended its reach into textiles and, in the ‘70s, started its Interiors division.
“With our customers having the utmost faith in the stability of our drapery business we launched a strong upholstery offering, which has continued to grow and go from strength to strength,” said the company’s spokesperson Kylie Davis. “Starting with basic ranges this has expanded into fashion patterns and, recently, the business has required a new product development manager, focussed entirely on upholstery.
“With our own testing laboratory on site and being ISO 9001:2008 and Target accredited, this ensures we are supplying the highest quality upholstery and keeping up with all emerging technology in the textiles sector. With a keen eye on the emerging trends and quality requirements of our manufactures and upholstery customers we are sure to see continued growth through 2017 and beyond.”
Two new ranges
This small geometric pattern, termed GEO, can be used to complement a sofa or as an accent chair. By using metallic yarn it gives the hint of the glamour from the Deco era, where metals were often used as finishes in the home.
Created with a metallic yarn the silver, bronze and navy are commercial fabrics but will also come into being the ‘foundation or staple’ for many home interiors across Australasia.
Napier, although a fashion item, will be current for years to come due to the Deco style being used over and over again in interiors fashion.
The Nordic countries have influenced our interiors for decades and, as our worlds get more complicated, many people want a simple but sophisticated look in their homes.
The new upholstery fabric, Astrid, was designed to complement the Scandi style that never seems to date.
Minimalistic finished sofas and armchairs constructed with light woods or metallic hardware need more than just a ‘plain’ fabric. A tactile ‘want to touch’ quality texture is the key to making this look work.
Woven in Turkey with a beautiful weight and high Martindale, Astrid is the new luxurious felt that has been created in elegant chalk, misty rose, dusk, wood and ebony.
Refined and gentle, Astrid will be a staple for many retailers, designers and workrooms for years to come.
