This is a project which our firm completed almost 15 years ago!! Every project strives to accomplish "Timeless Design" and I can honestly say, we accomplished that here. It still looks current to me!!
Looking back, the goal of this project was for the furnishings to survive living in an indoor/outdoor environment ~ next to the Pacific Ocean.
Everything was specified with specific finishes for that purpose. The fabrics back then, were not as sophisticated as those which are available today.
I love using Solution-dyed fabrics, which are basically classified as Outdoor fabrics. Today the choices are so much better than that which was available when this project was done. There are so many manufactures which offer fabrics which fall into this classification.
If you're just starting to look at fabrics for reupholstering or you're buying new furniture, I highly recommend looking at fabrics which are constructed for Outdoor Use.
The fabrics are mildew resistant, color-fast to survive in extreme conditions of high UV and they are considered "Pet-Friendly !!" LOL
And, as always ... if you have specific questions you may email me with any specific questions. Please allow 24-48 hours for my reply.
