FAIRLAWN, Ohio, March 15 / -- OMNOVA Solutions (NYSE:OMN) introduces product selection made easy with the addition of its broad upholstery offerings to the Design Center at www.omnova.com. OMNOVA's Design Center is a customized interactive tool for decorative product and interior designers and specifiers, architects, upholsterers and OEM manufacturers.
Upholstery products are arranged in the Design Center by market category, including contract, residential, marine and aftermarket. Users will find brands they have come to trust for design and performance, such as Boltaflex(R)® contract upholstery, Nautolex® marine upholstery and trim, and BoltaSoft® upholstery for the automotive and marine aftermarket. Many offer the exceptional stain resistance and cleanability of OMNOVA's proprietary PreFixx® protective coatings, long-recognized for quality.
Selections are made fast and easy as users are able to search for products based on what is important and relevant to their current projects. Photo images and specification information are available for every product. Users can order samples online or refer directly to the corresponding binder of tip cards or stack books already on their shelves. Users can track and manage their selections by creating personal project folders on the OMNOVA site.
"OMNOVA's interactive Design Center is a best-in-class tool to help our customers find just the right upholstery solution. The ability to easily access all the options and then immediately order samples online adds a significant measure of convenience and speed which is so important in keeping projects moving forward," said Terry Frass, OMNOVA's General Manager of Coated Fabrics. "It's the perfect use of technology to aid in the creative decision- making process."
