Tangerine. Marine Blue. Fire Engine Red. These are only a few of the popular colors featured in outdoor settings this season. Bold hues are in- whether in vibrant solid designs or in fun patterns. In addition to introducing these spunky colors, manufacturers are also playing with textures and effects to enhance the outdoor living experience. Given the wide range of durable outdoor fabrics available today, outdoor spaces can be just as inviting as interior rooms.
Richloom Fabrics Group has seen major growth in its soft products, such as sheer panels and poufs used for decorating outdoor spaces. Sheer panels used in combination with bold colors and patterns create an extension of indoor window treatments. Richloom’s Ventura-Signot is an example of the company’s sheer offerings.
Glen Raven/Sunbrella® has also introduced new designs that transition well with indoor spaces. Several of its Sunbrella offerings have a “heather” effect, providing a natural, almost homespun, look that consumers love. This heather effect can be applied to both striped patterns as well as canvas, resulting in a fresh new aesthetic and a great value at retail.
