Hold the phone, that’s fabric?

It’s smooth like a leather, cool like a leather, but it’s actually…fabric?

VIOLINO FABRIC

 

 

Here at Red Knot we have a selection of furniture pieces that feature a relatively new, high performance fabric called Ariapell.  It has quickly become popular among customers who want something that is a nice in between a traditional fabric and leather – you get the look and feel of leather but the affordability and maintenance of a fabric.

A blend of polyester and polyurethane, Ariapell is smooth to the touch and feels just like leather. In fact, some people don’t believe us when we tell them it’s actually just fabric! Besides the affordable cost of Ariapell compared to leather, one of it’s best features is it’s a breathable fabric!  This is one of the biggest concerns people have with living in a hot and humid place like Hawaii.

Maintenance with this fabric is a breeze! It’s easy to clean and wipe things off because of it’s finish which makes it easier to take care off on a day-to-day basis. You also don’t need to worry about conditioning it every few months like you would with any leather pieces, so that’s definitely a nice plus.

Ariapell comes from one of our fan favorite vendors, Violino. While we only currently have three different frames in our showrooms that are stocked in the Ariapell fabric, with our special order program you can order this fabric in a multitude of different colors on any of our many Violino frames.

Stop by your nearest Red Knot location and check out some of our pieces with this amazing fabric!

 

 

Let Your Style Shine Through: Custom order program

Furniture shopping tends to happen as often as once every few years, so it’s important to enjoy the whole process.  Buying furniture should not be hard, nor should it be stressful. It should be fun. Yes, technical factors such as design, size, quality and price should be taken into consideration, but also remember the most important factor of all is personality.  

Find and buy furniture that reflects you.     

Your home interior, just like your fashion choices, is a reflection of your personality.

At Red Knot, we take the term “personality” and give it meaning through our Custom Order Program.  We have never been your average cookie cutter furniture store and we are so proud to share that custom options are available for many of our upholstered pieces including sofa, loveseat and chairs.

Our frames from VIOLINO can be customized through different color selections and custom order options.

Hamlin, our only (and best selling) power reclining sofa and loveseat, can now be ordered in various colors.  So, for those who abide by the “no-white” rule for all kinds of reasons, fear no more, as we have black, brown, gray, and even burgundy available for our “lazy boys” (and gals) who wants to relax in their perfect reclining sofa after a long day.

The very modern and sleek Jackson sofa a.k.a the bachelor favorite, can now be ordered in a sectional.  You read it right, ladies.  Not just a sofa, but a sofa-chaise sectional.  That means more seating and leg room, which is a wonderful compromise between you and your-boyfriend-who-loves-it-because-it’s-perfect-for-his-mancave.  It’s a win-win situation!  Imagine, movie nights at his place with more room for cuddling!  Also, another thing to note – through our custom program, he can consider another color other than black that is not so…masculine. 🙂

Speaking of colors, Violino offers fabrications in different colors as well as textures.  Ariapelle and Dinera are both high-performance fabrics, the first having a more sheen, and the latter, a more matte finish. What they both have in common is they feel and look leather-like, but they are made of 100% high-quality and breathable polyester.  When it comes to color and texture, whichever fits your personality best, you decide.

Not only do our Violino frames make fantastic options just by themselves, we had to kick it up a notch by providing another custom order program. In addition to custom colors and sectional preferences, the Whitney sofa is now available in a sleeper.  It’s an actual pull-out bed.  And to be even more precise, a Queen size memory-foam sleeper.  Great to have for those expected (and unexpected) guests.  Although we have to warn you, the memory foam mattress just might make them want to stay a little bit lo-onger than you planned.  You’re welcome.

Our BOLIYA frames, Barkly, Gilford, and Bannon offer (almost) endless possibilities of colors and fabrics.  With over 90 different fabrics to choose from, Boliya provides virtually the most custom options at Red Knot.  Fabrications include micro-fiber, twill and velvet to name a few.  Ranges of hues vary from grays to browns, denim, blues and reds.  You decide what color your sofa will be AND you can also choose the colors of the accompanying pillows on your frame.  So many options!
