sensation fabrics For more than sixty years, Homecrest has built its reputation on quality, innovation and comfort. One landmark example of this was in our introduction of the Sensation sling in 2002. As pioneers in the elastomeric fabric category, we have more than 15 years of experience building Sensation sling furniture; and to this day, there is nothing that comes close to the maintenance-free comfort, memory, colorfastness and longevity of a Homecrest Sensation chair. Sensation slings are constructed using an elastomeric yarn that is woven together with normal PVC sling fibers, creating a material that has amazing stretch characteristics for comfort, and outstanding memory for fabric longevity. If you have never sat in a Sensation sling chair, you really need to – the difference in comfort between a Sensation sling and a standard PVC sling is remarkable. The fabric stretches and moves according to the frame of the person sitting in it, while providing excellent support and comfort; and once the chair is vacated, the memory of the elastomeric fibers causes the fabric to return to its smooth, clean profile. Sensation slings also have an incredible strength story to tell. All of Homecrest’s standard sling products go through 50,000 cycles of drop-testing, which in itself is remarkable; but Sensation slings go well over 90,000 cycles without damage. Our testing has also shown that Sensation fabrics promote the structural integrity of the metal frames used in chair construction, as the elastomeric characteristics absorb much of the shock that would normally be borne by the supporting frame. As for maintenance, Sensation fabrics just can’t be beat. There’s no such thing as a ‘dry time’ after rain – if it needs to be used immediately after a storm, towel it off and it’s ready to go. Likewise, cleaning is a breeze, and its incredible colorfastness makes it look showroom-ready year-round. At Homecrest, we use Sensation fabrics on deep seating and dining furniture alike. Whether on a single dining chair or a giant lounging sectional, all Sensation products feature double-layer slings and our unique “cushionless”, foam-free construction, bringing together the very best in comfort, style and maintenance-free outdoor living.
