von Hemert Interiors Royal Wedding Event

by Carrie 6. June 2011 05:12
On April 28th von Hemert Interiors invited a few hundred of their closest friends and clients to a very special Royal Wedding event celebrating the coming nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The evening was centered around all things British including vintage diamond tiaras, a Union Jack mini cooper, Versace china and an elaborate royal wedding cake designed by Christopher Garren’s Let Them Eat Cake Bakery. Models walked around the showroom in elaborate gowns designed by celebrity fashion designer Oday Shakar. Author and contributing editor of House Beautiful, Emily Evans Eerdmans gave a presentation on classic English design and antiques. The von Hemert showroom showcased a beautiful display of over a hundred pieces of English furniture reproductions by manufacturer Theodore Alexander. Five percent of von Hemert Interiors sales and jewelry sales from the weekend benefitted the American Red Cross Japanese disaster relief. This fabulous evening will go down in the von Hemert’s memory as being one of their most treasured events.

Swaim Kaleidoscope Microfiber Fabrics

Swaim Kaleidoscope Microfiber Fabrics

When we introduced the Swaim Bubble Chair last week, we mentioned that the Kaleidoscope collection features a selection of over 40 fabrics.  At the recent April furniture market in High Point, North Carolina, Swaim introduced even more fabrics to the Kaleidoscope collection.  And, as mentioned, any one of the Kaleidoscope fabrics can be applied as covers for the collections' upholstery pieces for the same price!

Out of all these fabrics, Swaim has made it a point to include 16 colorways of microfiber.  Microfibers define the fabrics of the future: the soft hand feels as cozy and luxurious as suede, but the high resistance to wearing and staining (most anything washes out with soap and water) make microfibers the most practical of fabrics.

The first ultra-microfiber was invented by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto of Toray Industries in 1970. His associate, Dr. Toyohiko Hikota, was then able to create a process involving these fibers into a new non-woven fabric, now know as Ultrasuede.  The Ultrasuede microfibers are a remarkable technological feat; invisible to the naked, these fibers are so fine that a single pound's worth of them could stretch out for a roundtrip to and from the moon.

Along with Swaim, the von Hemert showrooms feature many lines of microfiber fabrics available in hundreds of colors.
