It was after a visit to the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney that KING Textile and Leather Development Manager Sebastian Nash had the vision for Richmond.
Inspired by the work of artists such as Arthur Streeton, the saturated colours of the Australian landscape are evident in the fabric colours. “Wattle” and “Eucalypt” capture the native greenery, “Spice” the red dust of the outback and “Ink” the deep blue ocean that laps at the coast.
These Australian-inspired hues are joined by a range of neutral shades and bold colour pops to round out the palette.
In line with the KING commitment to sustainability – a commitment that harks back to the origin of the KING brand – Richmond contains 36% Repreve recycled polyester.
Repreve is made from recycled plastic bottles, taking waste that would otherwise end up in landfill and giving it new life. Also used in products such as running shoes, hiking apparel and so much more, Repreve is a high-performance fibre recognised as a global leader in sustainable production.
The sustainability benefits of Richmond only serve to enhance the appeal of this interesting collection. Inspired by nature and contributing back to nature, there is so much more to this modern fabric range.
The Repreve manufacturing process gives the yarn a range of desirable properties that enhance the durability and performance of the fabric. It is moisture wicking, water repellent, wrinkle resistant and thermal regulating (for warming and cooling). Mimicking the look and feel of a natural fibre, Repreve adds something very special to Richmond.
A durable chenille, Richmond is a heavy commercial fabric that is ideal for busy families that need their furniture to stand up to the rigours of everyday life. As you would expect from KING, Richmond has been designed for longevity as much as it has for style.

The durability and finish of the fabric lends any of the 11 colourways in the collection well to both statement pieces and high-traffic furniture. Pair with different textures, such as leather or linen, from the KING fabric collection to create a custom look for your space.
If you’re seeking a conscious fabric option with classic colours and a luxurious tactility, the Richmond chenille is a clear choice.
