Offering a breathtakingly diverse colour and texture options, as well as ease of maintenance and durability, Sunbrella’s 2017/2018 Shade Collection has raised the bar on quality shade fabrics.
9 March, 2018
With its relentless sun and torrential downpours (sometimes both on the same day), Singapore’s tropical climate is pretty unforgiving to outdoor fabrics. Installing awnings and throwing shade fabrics is a beautifully simple solution to offer respite from the weather, as well as to add visual interest and colour accent – integral parts of brand identity – to a building.
Sunbrella’s 2017/2018 Shade Collection has taken the art of shading to a new level. The collection offers an improved performance perfected from five-decades’ worth of research and development that includes durability and ease-of-maintenance.
The collection also offers breathtakingly diverse variants, ranging from solid colours to patterns both subtle and bold intriguing, and textures like speciality jacquards with metallic sheen and melange effect. The collection enables designers to be as fancy with the outdoors as they would with the indoor.
The Jockey Red shade fabric pictured is made with 100 per cent Sunbrella Acrylic and is available in widths of 117 or 152 centimetres with left and right selvedge. To add texture and pattern, Sunbrella recommends pairing the shade with the maroon Dubonnet Tweed or the red-brown-ocher stripe Manteo Cardinal. Visit sunbrella.com for more recommendations!
