After a period with stark, simple, single-colour design as the main trend in architecture and interior design, Kvadrat chose to go for a more warm, soft and human style within the contract furnishing market. This is where mélange upholstery fabric was launched. Kvadrat very successfully introduced the Tundra and Flora mélange woollen upholstery fabrics in 1997. In 2000, the company presented Tonica, a mixed wool furniture fabric specially designed for the office furniture sector, which retains its look and feel even during hard everyday wear in offices.

The main requirement of Tonica was to obtain a blend in the surface of the fabric while retaining the solid colour expression, so that you get a clear and vivid colour shadowed with black. The colours of Tonica are created, by doing both a light grey and a dark grey mélange in the same 14 colours. This produces 14 light and 14 dark mélange colours in Tonica. In music, tonika is the keynote in a scale, a note where you feel “at home” because the melody in the mode concerned often ends on tonika. This feeling is elegantly transferred to the upholstery Tonica, which exactly expresses something safe and comfortable.
