G one are the days of the basic beige or forest green utilitarian shade umbrella. Sunbrella upholstery fabrics offer the performance you demand in a vast variety of styles and patterns. Today, we can design and furnish our exterior spaces as elegantly as our interior spaces, with any color, or lack of color, while weather resistant, fade resistant and for all intents and purpose, stain proof!
The 2017/2018 Sunbrella Shade Collection brings the best in modern shade fabrics and recycled content. Central to the shade collection are offerings that add dimension with unique textures such as specialty jacquards, metallic sheens and bold patterns. The collection introduces new shades like Azure and Basalt and revives the ever popular clean stripe design.
The Sunbrella “Unity” line is the first recycled Sunbrella shade fabric made using 100% Sunbrella acrylic (50% recycled Sunbrella). Texture and distinctive detail create a timeless charm with this decorative shade application. Be warned though - due to the nature of the recycled content, Sunbrella Unity fabrics may exhibit significant color variation.
“Alloy” from Sunbrella features a high tech metallic look that filters light and allows water to pass through. It is intended for structures where the need for an architectural aesthetic outweighs the need for complete protection from the elements.
Jacquard fabric featured in the Sunbrella Fundamental, Avenues and Cirrus lines are designed specifically for decorative performance. Jacquard fabric has a raised pattern that is woven (instead of printed) onto the fabric. Popular jacquard designs include damasks, florals, and geometrics. The distinct patterns of each style create a unique visual appeal and are ideal for decorative shade applications.
Sunbrella is the Global leader with over 100 years of innovation with performance fabrics and they continue to raise the bar with color and patterns allowing yet another outlet for personal style.
