Inside Out

In the past, sitting on outdoor furniture was not the most pleasant experience.  It was scratchy, wet, or both.  But things have come a long way!  The new outdoor fabrics are just as comfortable and luxurious as many indoor fabrics.  In fact, in some cases, we recommend those “outdoor” fabrics for indoor use.   The evolution […]
