Celebrating Sunbrella's 50th!

Yesterday I attended Sunbrella's NYC anniversary celebration. Sunbrella, along with Elle Decor's Melissa Barrett Rhodes and HGTV's Genevieve Gorder, gave an informative chat about the usage of Sunbrella textiles for interior rooms, outdoor spaces and nautical purposes. Sunbrella textiles are fade resistant and they offer a variety of patterns (florals, whimsical, geometric and stripes) and several textile options (velvets, sheers, chenilles) so that their products can be used for creations throughout the home.  
Velvets anyone? What an amazing selection of gorgeous colors! 
Sunbrella rugs? Yes, I just found out about them yesterday. Several options available with sizing, colors and shapes. 
The new hot pink color! And yes, Sunbrella makes throws too! 
Sunbrella textiles are great for seating surfaces, window treatments, pillows and more. What have you created (or would you create) using Sunbrella's durable and stylish textiles?

Love that durable fabrics are coming indoors! With little boys, I've learned "whip off" is imperative! Great update, Lisa!!

LOVE sunbrella, just used the fabric for cushions placed on window benches in a client's beach house...if there ever was a need for this type of fabric this was it! I didn't know they made throws, thanks for sharing, Janell

I've heard Sunbrella is great in family rooms where sofas are sat upon by kids and dogs - I would love to recover my couch in with that gorgeous flame stitch in the third picture!

Debby,
I too learned that their product line-up goes beyond nautical purposes and interior textiles...the rugs and throws were a pleasant surprise to me!

Hampton,
Sunbrella's textile has a 10 year life expectancy against fading...that is impressive, especially for your Hamptons summers!

Pretty Pink Tulips,
As a mother of two little ones, I absolutely agree that style and function have to be the perfect marriage!

Janell,
I too have used Sunbrella on a client's window bench in a NYC apartment.

The Buzz,
The flame stitch is beyond amazing...I had to take several looks at it...modern day and timeless all at once!

Yes! Bring on the color! I love it. I actually need dark red velvet panels for my parlor but haven't gotten around to it yet - thanks for the reminder!

I am working on sunbrella slipcovers for a client right now - we chose it because of her 4 young children!

Sunbrella is getting better all the time. My friend put it on a sofa in her den and it looks great. I've used some Altizer outdoor fabrics on furniture before and they have some lovely things too.
Best,
