Soften your outdoor furniture with Sunbrella

When buying outdoor furniture, there are many determining factors to consider. Is it soft and comfy? Will it stand the test of time? Does it serve its purpose? Were the raw materials ethically sourced and manufactured sustainably? The list goes on but the answers may be put on hold at some point.

Because the reality is, when it comes to buying, say, that sleek teak outdoor furniture you’ve always had your eye on, you’ll only know if it’s truly worth the investment after your card has been swiped and that piece has been sitting in your living room for a long time.

That is why it pays to educate yourself on everything you need to know before buying outdoor furniture. In this article, we discuss one of the 3 F’s that matter when buying outdoor furnitureFabric.

We at Design Concepts value the importance of partnering with brands that we trust. When it comes to sourcing the right fabric for use in our furniture, there is no substitute for quality. Sunbrella is a type of fabric that is resistant to the harsh NZ weather & UV rays. We go beyond the aesthetics and dive into the fabrics proven performance to withstand the country’s different marine and land environments in varying weather conditions. We share in Sunbrella’s commitment to the environment, functional statement, and innovative approach.

With the latest trends, 2019 is all about furniture manufactured with mixed materials. More homeowners are gearing towards following the old but gold idea of blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor furniture. One of the best parts of using Sunbrella fabric in our furniture is that it allows for maximum functional flexibility depending on your needs.

We take quality seriously. But don’t worry, we are big believers that high quality should not equate to huge costs. That’s what Design Concepts is all about – designer quality at an affordable price tag. To find out more about our warranty, you can check it out here or get in touch with us to have a chat!
