The Fabric Maverick says... Outdoor fabric is not just for the outdoors!

July 1, 2008

Look out! Outdoor fabric is not just for the outdoors anymore. We all remember outdoor fabrics as being very durable, boring colors and kind of plastic feeling. To be considered an outdoor fabric, the fabric must have water resistant and fade resistant properties.

With the popularity of sunrooms, outdoor fabrics are being brought inside. It is the nature of woman to want things to be attractive. No more drab fabrics for us! Men, of course, can live with orange crates and burlap. Thank God manufacturers pay attention to what women want! There is a whole new generation of outdoor fabrics. There is fabric made from acyrlic, polyester, blends, cottons and more. The colors are beautiful and virtually maintenance free.

How bright and cheerful are these colors!  There is a style for everyone. There are the classic awning styles, fanciful children styles and traditional styles. From the sunroom, this fabric is migrating to family rooms. It is perfect for the family with children and pets.The fabric will hold up to spills, climbing and whatever the pets and children can think of doing. Husbands can be pretty tough on fabric also. Women have too much going on to spend time cleaning upholstery.

I love outdoor fabric alternatives you've posted. The second one is the best. I'm thinking of ordering one I found yesterday at Ballard Designs.
