Guilford of Maine's Open House line of fabric has been the gold standard for 100% Polyester woven commercial grade seating fabrics, and our go-to standard upholstery fabric since we opened our doors in 2002. Chosen for it's consistent high quality, and high durability rating of 250,000 double rubs, Open House is a great standard fabric that will last.
We're excited to be offering our new proprietary BioKnit fabric on all of our chairs! This unique knitted fabric is significantly softer than most traditional woven fabrics, is made of 100% recycled material, is bleach cleanable, biodegradable, and made in the USA, all without sacrificing durability.
NOTE: BioKnit is not Available on Gestures with Wrap Back or Headrest at this time.
BioKnit is 100% made, dyed, and knitted in Grand Rapids, Michigan! Keeping things local, just the way we like it!
Being a knitted fabric makes BioKnit softer, stretchier, more breathable, while also being made to size to reduce fabric waste significantly.
BioKnit has a Durability Rating of 250,000 Double Rubs; 16.6x the 15,000 required to be considered "Heavy Duty Commercial Grade"
BioKnit has a cleaning code of WS (Water or Solvent Based Cleaners), and is also Bleach Cleanable (9:1 Water:Bleach)
At the end of it's useful life, BioKnit can be recycled or sent to a landfill where it will safely biodegrade in as little as 1,278 days.
BioKnit is constructed of 100% Post-Consumer Recycled polyester, and can also be recycled again at the end of it's useful life.
Made using the same materials and process as our original BioKnit fabric, our 3D BioKnit fabric is a thicker, more breathable version that utilizes two different yarn colors, creating a unique 3 dimensional look to any office chair.

3D BioKnit Color Note: The front color is the prominent color, and covers more surface area than the back color. If you are trying to match the seat to the back, the front color (listed first) will match much closer than if trying to match the back color. (example: Gunmetal/Splash will match much better with a Gunmetal Seat than a Splash Seat)
NOTE: 3D BioKnit is not Available on Gestures with Wrap Back or Headrest at this time.
We are now offering full-grain leather as a premium upholstery option. We took a great deal of time to source premium leather, which only come from Europe and New Zealand cattle, and provide a luxurious soft and smooth hand feel. Our leather is ~1mm thick, and has a Wyzenbeek Abrasion Rating of 100,000 double rubs.
We cut and sew every hide to-order, by hand. Because of this, every chair will be slightly unique. We also stitch every hide on every chair to match OEM stitching patterns.
We are also offering a limited selection of real leather with a Microfiber Suede coating. This leather is a split leather from Europe with a Microfiber Suede layer applied to it, providing an extremely unique and soft suede feel, while also providing stain resistance, UV protection, and high wear resistance. If you want a real leather with an extremely soft and durable suede-like feel, this a great option!
Texture Note: Our Micro-Suede Leather has a directionality to it - when you move your hand over the leather, it will change the look of the leather.
Ultrafabrics Brisa Vinyl has set the bar for premium grade polyurethane vinyl. The softness and hand feel of Brisa really needs to be felt to be appreciated - it is genuinely one of the softest, most comfortable materials we've ever upholstered with. What's more, it achieves this while providing one of the most breathable vinyls on the market, and maintaining an extreme Wyzenbeek Abrasion Rating of 300,000 double rubs.
For the first time ever, we are now offering a 100% Natural Wool based upholstery option. Our wool fabric has a two-tone weave that provides a very unique look. As with most natural wool products, this fabric has a more textured/course hand feel than a more traditional polyester based fabric, and is prone to a bit of natural pilling over time.
