The Good News About Outdoor Fabrics

At Andrea Noel Designs we are all about creating luxury interiors that are designed for life. The design world is always reinventing itself, which means, so are we. Constantly faced with the challenges of designing for families with kids and pets, our team has to be prepared for the possibility of messes. Thanks to innovations in the textile world….. outdoor fabrics have become a staple in a few of our INDOOR projects.

The custom dining bench was placed in a client’s kitchen nook and an outdoor fabric was used for easy cleaning and wearability. When you want to use a light color in a daily worn and torn spot like a kitchen nook, outdoor fabric is the only way to go.

Sunbrella fabric was the perfect choice for the blue kitchen barstools and window bench. When liquid is spilt, it will immediately bead up on the fabric and cleaning is a breeze. This seating is the perfect example of how outdoor fabric can be usefully applied to indoor design…..why stress over mess?

Sunbrella fabric or Crypton treated materials are also an awesome choice for sofas and living room furniture. If the kids spill juice on the couch, it doesn’t have to be a huge deal. The clean up will be quick and painless. Traditionally, outdoor fabrics were very “canvas-like” and not so cuddly-soft, but now that’s a problem of the past.

This might be our favorite use for outdoor fabrics…… WINDOW TREATMENTS! A lot of the time the bottom of a light colored window treatment will be noticeably dirty but with outdoor fabrics, cleaning them becomes a lot easier.


Until next Thursday…
