The Criterion collections mark a significant departure for Gainsborough, offering the best of all worlds: the beauty and integrity of Gainsborough designs in a versatile range of fabrics, at price points that allow designers and specifiers to bring our stunning designs for drapery and upholstery to their entire schemes.
Criterion I is a collection of six much-loved archive designs, all 100% inherently flame-retardant (IFR), in 9 colourways apiece.
Criterion II is an upholstery-grade collection (40,000+ rubs) also IFR, bringing together three 1950s-inspired designs, each presented in 9 colourways, alongside the three designs (in 3 colourways each) developed initially for the Sir John Soane’s Collection in 2017.
Criterion III is a further upholstery collection (40,000+ rubs) of 20 stunning stripes, incorporating noble yarns for a more luxurious feel with an optional FR coating.
The Criterion collections are distinct from anything else on the market and reflect Gainsborough’s heritage as a designer-maker. Bespoke IFR fabrics are also available in runs as short as 120m.
