Versatile Stand for Decades Fire Retardant Upholstery Fabrics in Cape Town

Versatile Stand for Decades Fire Retardant Upholstery Fabrics in Cape Town

The Silo FR-One South Africa

A celebration of art, style, architecture and design, The Silo Hotel sets a high benchmark for luxurious accommodation in Cape Town. The five-star hotel is a part of The Royal Portfolio, a collection of prestigious hotels synonymous with the highest levels of personalised service. Occupying six floors above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, geometry is embedded in the design of the hotel with a multi-faceted glass façade which glistens in the noon sun and becomes a lighted beacon in the night. The exterior architecture commands attention throughout the day, yet their interior truly steals the spotlight.

This top-tier hotel features a myriad of FR-One upholstery designs throughout the building: from its lounges, to its restaurants, to each of its 28 stylishly designed guestrooms. A stark contrast from its solid, steel-fringed exterior, the designers have opted for cosy, chenille textures to protect their upholstery. Elegantly plush to the eye, but fuzzy and soft to the touch, chenille is a highly versatile fabric which can be used to create couches, curtains and even comforters! And did we mention that it’s wrinkle resistant too?
If you’re looking for fabrics to store heat during the winter, chenille is the perfect texture as it keeps most surfaces warm and toasty. Yet, FR-One chenille fabrics don’t just keep the heat when it’s cold but their inherently fire-retardant fibres keep the heat (or rather, the flames) from spreading! Upholstery fabrics are meant to stand the test of time and the molecular structure of the FR-One fibres means that it continues to be fire-retardant even after many washes, many guests sitting and many decades shielding the hotel from UV rays.
Opting for FR-One retardant fabrics mean that the guests at The Silo can have ultimate peace of mind during their stay. Will FR-One be your pick too?
