Putting ‘Fun’ Back Into Functionality

How do you choose soft furnishings that you will use outdoors?

  • Is how they look & feel most important?
  • or is functionality & durability the No. 1 priority?

They’re both important surely, but many (other) high quality outdoor fabrics have limited colours and designs, so unless you like basic taupe, charcoal or dull stripes, you’ll probably be left underwhelmed by visual appeal.

Some (other) outdoor cushions have every treatment under the sun which means they’ll last forever but they feel like sandpaper against your skin. What’s the point of that?!

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 11.38.57 AMWe’ believe soft furnishings should be SOFT, BEAUTIFUL & DURABLE. They should be inviting to the user, not just endure the sun, wind and rain, so we’ve evolved our products from the olden day thinking and introduced fun and colour without compromising functionality in outdoor conditions.
