Kids, Pets, Spills - No Problem For Home Furnishings With Crypton® Home

Albert Maruggi - Monday, January 04, 2016

More residential interior designers are taking advantage of the Crypton high performance fabrics used in commercial environments such as Mayo Clinic and Marriott hotels.   Crypton has a 20 year history of application on furnishings in high traffic and use settings.  Designers of those settings have pushed for a similar high performance fabric that can be used in homes.  This residential high performance is particularly useful for homes with children and pets, also those families who are caring for elderly parents.




The new residential product is called Crypton Home. Crypton Home provides a stain, liquid, and odor resistant fabric that allows people to live an easier, more carefree lifestyle. Liquids roll off, stains are easy to clean, and odors won’t grab hold allowing the furniture to stay as beautiful as the day it was purchased.  Crypton Home Fabrics are soft, comfortable, and come in a wide variety of prints, textures, and colors.  According to Comer Wear vice president of marketing for Century Furniture, Crypton Home allows them to use white and other light colors in all types of rooms in the home without concern about wear and tear.


The partnership between Crypton and fabrics manufacturer Valdese Weavers two years ago continues to produce a variety of prints, solid colors and textures meeting the demands of interior designers.  Furniture manufacturer Thibaut had a section of their High Point Market Fall 2015  showroom dedicated to their Thibaut Crypton Home product line.  Thibaut will also have Crypton Home at their Las Vegas Market showroom
