Bentley Prince Street Delivers Contrast, Texture and a Touch of Old Hollywood with So Vintage™

Award-winning Product Available in Broadloom, Carpet Tile and Area Rugs

[City of Industry, CA – August 30, 2012] So Vintage by Bentley Prince Street offers whimsical contrasts and charming textures that will make a statement in corporate, hospitality and retail installations. The product is inspired by vintage fabrics of the silver screen era, but is truly modern in terms of its color line and organic, medium-scale patterning. So Vintage also emphasizes usability and coordinates easily with other Bentley Prince Street products including the best-selling Kings Road™, popular Edge City™ and soon-to-be-launched Iconic Intensity™.

“We are all very excited and proud of what we have in So Vintage and feel it has great appeal,” says Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street. “We’ve had tremendous response from our customers about its unique colorways and texture combinations.”

So Vintage won the Best of NeoCon Gold Award at NeoCon 2011 and also a 2011 Doc Product Award. In addition to its vintage charm, end-users will also enjoy its custom color flexibility and durability. So Vintage is made with Ultron® Color cf nylon 6,6 by Ascend and comes standard with High Performance™ backing, which provides better stability and straighter patterns.

“There are many features that make So Vintage so right,” says Valerie Ottaviano, vice president of product design. “Texture reminiscent of old Hollywood fabrics truly comes alive in a color line featuring orange and gold tones complimented by subtle, cool tones.”

Bentley Prince Street is committed to responsible manufacturing, including providing third party verification for its sustainability programs and progress. So Vintage comes standard with High PerformancePC backing, which contains a minimum average 10% post-consumer recycled content. As with all Bentley Prince Street products manufactured in its LEED-EB® Silver certified mill, So Vintage broadloom is certified to the NSF-140 Sustainable Carpet Assessment Standard at the Platinum level and carpet tile is certified to the Gold level.
