I have been a blog slacker. And I can only blame a) my work and b) the weather. Both of which I am extremely grateful for! But seriously.. the weather has been perfect. Has it not?
Which brings me to today's blog topic:
Outdoor fabrics used to only consist of 5-10 boring colors and had the texture of a stiff rainjacket.
Now... they are amazing. The lastest and greatest are so soft and comfortable that you'd never guess they were also bulletproof- resisting stains, fading, and mildew. Dirt washes off with just a little soap and water.
I find myself recommending them for indoor use as much as outdoor use.
One of my favorite outdoor fabric lines is Perennials. They have come out with some exceptional fabrics- from chenilles to linens to velvets!! (I repeat: Indoor/Outdoor velvet. I thought I'd never see the day.)
Although they are more expensive than the basic indoor linens and velvets you're paying for the durability... and peace of mind.
...As you curl up on your white linen sofa with a big glass or red wine.
Outdoor fabrics have come a long way...
Now you can have your cake and eat it too (on your stark white sofa)!
