If you’ve been to the High Point store lately, you have probably noticed the Outdoor & Performance fabric room (in the back of the store) has been rearranged. This year, we have added so many cleanable fabrics it’s hard to keep up with what’s appropriate for outside and what isn’t. Before we get ahead of ourselves, it’s important to note all outdoor fabrics can be used inside but not all performance fabrics can be used outside. Check with our sales associates if you aren’t sure.
We have found a growing number of customers prefer the concept Outside-In; using outdoor fabrics inside.
For high-traffic sofa and chair seating, kitchen banquettes, bar stools, dining room chair cushions and even pillows, it’s easy to understand why cleanable fabrics are a go-to favorite.
Stain-Resistant & Cleanable Outdoor fabrics save time and make life easier – things we value most!
All fabrics shown are outdoor specific.
If you aren’t familiar with how far outdoor fabrics have come (remember sticky, bonded oilcloth?) we invite you to explore!
Today’s outdoor fabrics offer touchable texture you would swear is indoor chenille, livable patterns and bright color palettes await. And while we are on the subject, let’s talk about white fabric. For years most of us have avoided white and ivory upholstery fabrics after all they attract stains like a magnet and other than slip-covers, upholstery can’t exactly be added to the wash. Whites from Al Fresco Functional Fabrics are woven from stain-resistant, solution-dyed polyester that cleans up easily with a bleach and water solution.
The bench seat/pillow photos shown above and below both feature outdoor fabrics: fade-resistant, easy-to-maintain Sunbrella and Outdura brands, available on the roll and to order at 1502 Fabrics in High Point or by calling 336-434-2153.
