Carpinteria, California, UNITED STATES

LOS ANGELES, March 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As the industry leader working in engineered synthetics for more than twenty-five years, JANUS et Cie recently debuted a richly versatile collection of elegant indoor and outdoor furniture hand woven using innovative synthetic fibers exclusive to JANUS et Cie. With a focus on the practical, as well as the beautiful, the JANUSfiber™ collection includes lounge and dining furniture handwoven in JANUS et Cie's proprietary "Generation-Next" JANUSfiber, an integrally colored material that sustains beautifully in harsh environmental conditions. Each skillfully crafted piece is designed to lend as much comfort and elegance to the patio or garden as any interior space.  "JANUSfiber is a creative fusion of nature and science," says JANUS et Cie President Janice Feldman.  "Design, craftsmanship and technology all come together to create an array of weaves, colors and finishes that will harmonize with natural or other synthetic materials."  The color palette includes Limestone, Bronze, Natural, Palladium, Ebony and Oyster, with its soft luster reminiscent of mother-of-pearl.  Bamboo Green, Caramel and Khaki reveal subtle striations that echo the color variations found in nature.  

The JANUSfiber collection comprises easy-living dining and lounge furniture that ranges from the striking simplicity of Cremona to Quinta's rich pairing of woven fibers with solid premium teak to the sinuous curves of Amari, inspired by the ancient arts of Crete.  The collection also includes See! by renowned designer Michael Vanderbyl a modernist offering of modular pieces that combine in countless ways.  Janice Feldman's Triad bench is a stand out for its bold sculptural form. Wedding durability to style—in classic and contemporary silhouettes—the JANUSfiber collection also includes Milan, Zeya, Ascona, Capsule, Shell and the glamorous Pacific collection notable for its exclusive Tri-weave™  construction and how "beautifully it captures the audacious spirit of southern California in the 50's." 

Proof against weather and time, JANUSfiber offers superb performance characteristics, including resistance to ultra-violet light, moisture and microorganisms.  The surface will not tear and the integral color will not fade.  Fibers are handwoven over a durable powder-coated aluminum frame.  Both JANUSfiber and powder-coated aluminum are 100% recyclable.  Janice Feldman says, "Our JANUSfiber collection speaks to the concern we all share about our natural environment.  Each piece is made using materials of lasting quality and offers an exceptional lifecycle—the ultimate measure of a "green" product."
