    In Part 2 of Lauren’s conversation with Barbara Dellinger, they discuss:
    Why is Barbara Dellinger Lauren’s favorite “go to person” when faced with a concern about fabrics for healthcare environments? Vinyl in the past has been abandoned by manufacturers.

Is there any way for designers to know which fabrics will succeed and which ones will fail? Are woven fabrics ever acceptable? Why is chair construction so important? What are the current trends – solid surface vs. laminate, wood vs. metal? What does Barbara consider to be the minimal rate rating acceptable when specifying lounge seating in healthcare environments?
