vivian_kanargelidis_dayle_laing_350Dayle Laing, LEED AP, provided practical advice for selecting sustainable residential and commercial interior fabrics that will meet clients’ needs for health and the environment.

Fabrics 101, an IDCEC accredited seminar, encompassed the most current research on textile certification and scientific research on toxicity.

Interior Designers and Interior Decorators were hosted in the showroom of Sun Glow Window Covering Products of Canada Ltd. in Toronto on February 17, 2011. Vivian Kanargelidis, owner of Sun Glow, showed the designers who stayed on for lunch, the Trevira CS fabric she recently sourced in Germany at Heimtextil, the international textile trade show. Vivian remarked that commercial architects and interior designers are demanding a flame retardant fabric without PVC vinyl for their sun screen window shade requirements.

Sun screens are used extensively in projects with large windows requiring the comfort of light control and preventing solar heat gain.

Attendees made the following comments:

Dayle, I gained an immense amount of knowledge during your presentation Fabrics 101. Thank you for the references to so many worthwhile websites to assist us as designers / decorators. I feel I can offer my clients & family better information going forward.”

Jane Campbell, Woodbridge, ON

Excellent! I learned a great deal.”

Helen Moffett, Toronto, ON

With so much focus on LEED certification for both new construction and existing building renovation, it is only natural that commercial designers look at all aspects of the building including the textile furnishings.
