Performance Linen is one of our best-selling fabrics for a number of reasons, from its soft, subtle texture to its exceptional durability. Woven with Crypton performance, Performance Linen uses cutting-edge material science to keep stains and spills at bay, making it the perfect choice for family homes or entertaining areas.
From modern lofts to wood-clad lake houses, Performance Linen is the star of some of our favorite homes, so we thought we’d take a little tour of these gorgeous designs - hearing from the designers behind them why this material was perfect for their projects.
At the edge of Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill, just steps from the Barclay’s Center on Atlantic Avenue, a young couple enlisted the help of Handin Browne’s Samantha Goldman and Samantha Polkow to design an airy oasis. The two Samanthas set to work designing a beautiful Warren chaise sectional for the space covered in the uber pet-friendly Creme Performance Linen - perfect for their clients’ instagram-famous pup, Bodie.
With the help of interior designer Alicia Murphy, home-owner Rhian Horgan custom built the perfect family retreat in the Hamptons, filled with luxe texture, playful pattern, and of course, beautiful Maiden Home furniture. At the heart of the home lies The Irving L Sectional in Putty Performance Linen, chosen to match the family’s indoor-outdoor living in the summer.
"We selected Putty Performance Linen for this sofa because it was a gorgeous neutral and durable fabric to stand the test of time against kids, guests, wet bathing suits and whatever else may come.” - Alicia Murphy
Blogger Kelly Rinzema reimagined her stunning living room in coastal hues to reflect her home's stunning lake views. The Sullivan sectional covered in crisp Oyster Performance Linen is the heart of this versatile family room, intended as much for family movie nights as for entertaining in the summertime.
“This sofa feels so special because of the extra details like the wood feet and curved arm, plus we finally have the white linen sofa I've always wanted but in a kid and pet-friendly fabric!” - Kelly Rinzema
