Upholstery Update – Discontinued, Replaced and New Materials

We are informing all customers of a change in availability of LaFrance fabrics within Freedman’s in-stock upholstery program. Freedman Seating has learned that effective immediately, LaFrance Industries will no longer supply upholstery to transportation markets. Although LaFrance fabrics are being discontinued, we are working closely with other reputable vendors to produce similar designs that best match existing fabrics. This is an opportunity to provide refreshed, high-quality materials for your next project.

What does this mean to our customers?

  • A limited amount of in-stock LaFrance materials will be available to fulfill existing orders.
  • New orders that include LaFrance materials will be filled if inventories allow.
  • Many LaFrance fabrics will be replaced with similar designs or new patterns.
  • Several LaFrance fabrics will be discontinued altogether, as determined by low demand.











In addition, we are pleased to announce the addition of new Docket 90 vinyl by Camira. Rhino D-90 will be available as a Level 4 in-stock collection. Two colors (Navy Blue and Light Gray) will be available with an embossed texture, making Rhino a great looking and safe vinyl option for any application.



We will be updating customers as soon as new and replacement upholstery become available. Thank you for your patience. Please contact your Freedman Seating representative or visit www.freedmanseating.com if you have any questions.
