Outdoor luxury

When it comes to those sun-drenched rooms or outdoor sanctuaries there’s no need to compromise on style or comfort with the amazing array of sophisticated new colour-fast fabrics now available.

Here's some of our favourites …

Schumacher is renowned for exceptional colour and extraordinary patterns.  Chiang Mai Dragon is one of Schumacher's most famous and has just been released in 100% Polyester for indoor/outdoor use.  Now you can enjoy the Aquamarine (pictured) and China Blue colours in your sunny zones too.



Schumacher's new indoor/outdoor weaves include Stucco.  "This fabric really stands out to me because of its beautiful chunky texture.  It's simple yet eye catching.  The looped yarn gives it a lovely casual feel but would look so sophisticated in many different settings.  I would love to see it made up on some outdoor loungers or in a pool side seating" says Catriona.



Decortex's new Oasi indoor/outdoor collection includes gorgeous sheers which are perfect to filter the harsh sunlight and gives a softness for both indoor and outdoor room areas.  "The lovely natural tones and gorgeous floaty weights suit so many NZ homes" is the feedback Toni's getting.  Her personal favourite is Ponente - a washable wide-width subtly striped sheer that's 100% Polypropylene with a colour fastness rating of 6.



Decortex's outdoor upholsteries offer interior colour and texture for use outdoors.  Their Atlante collection is a gem.  In Vai's words - "I love this one!  Ouazzane being 100% Polypropylene with a subtle texture, it has a very soft handle with very user-friendly colours.  The burnt orange has now moved to the top of my list of favourite colours."
