In The News

MGBlair introduces aerated cushion design

MGBlair has launched a new aerated cushion and pillow design with quick-dry capabilities.

MGBLAIR INTRODUCES REVOLUTIONARY AERATED CUSHION DESIGN

Outdated cushion and pillow designs rely on an easily-worn chemical waterproof coating or an internal, bag-like liner. When traditional attempts to waterproof outdoor furniture cushions and pillows fail, water saturation occurs, leading to faster wear, fabric discoloration and mold formation.

Designers and manufacturers talk casual contract projects

“There are tried-and-true pieces of American furniture that have been around for years, and that is still something people seek out,” says Woodrow Plunkett, managing partner at MGBlair. “But if a new hospitality project brings in those classic pieces, people may see it as old and outdated, so trend-wise hospitality venues are a lot faster to adapt.”

MGBlair launches redesigned website

As a part of the redesign, designers can now view MGBlair’s five collections as grouped offerings or view the company’s full catalogue, which is divided by product type. Each product listing on the site allows users to view the furnishings in a variety of color options, and fabric selections are organized with clear color options and usage information for each fabric and grade.
