MA­TE­RIAL WORLD

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FOCUS -

Out­door uphol­stery fab­rics have come such a long way in re­cent years with hard, plas­tic-feeling ma­te­ri­als mak­ing way for fab­rics that feel like nat­u­ral fi­bres such as linen.

The best, from brands such as Sun­brella, re­quire lit­tle more than soap and wa­ter to clean and then sim­ply left to air dry.

Just as has been the case in­doors, colours have veered to­wards shades of grey for out­door lounges, from soft hues of dove through to deep char­coals.

While the lat­est in­no­va­tions show great im­prove­ments in re­gards to fad­ing, given our harsh con­di­tions, it is wise to bring fab­rics in­doors when not in use to ex­tend their life.
