Sun-loving Fabrics

WE'VE ALREADY pulled out and dusted off our patio furniture, but sometimes cleaning just isn’t enough. We asked local design experts to share their favorite summer prints for those of us who need a fabric refresh.

Sarong Weave by Schumacher
“It’s 100 percent solution-dyed acrylic; is mold, mildew, and stain-resistant; and has a three-year light fastness guarantee. … So not only is the pattern great looking, it is a true workhorse fabric!”

Holly Phillips, The English Room:
Zebras by Scalamandré
“The iconic Scalamandré Zebra in sunny yellow is sure to perk up any outdoor space as pillows. I would pair it with a bold black-and-white cabana stripe for the cushions and curtains. This also reminds me of a favorite and quirky movie, The Royal Tenenbaums by Wes Anderson.”

Sutton by Perennials Fabrics
“I love Rose Tarlow for Perennials. Not a fan of the trendy, but the ‘Tatton,’ ‘Soho,’ and ‘Sutton’ stripe are lovely, with natural colors found in nature.”

Ripples by Perennials Fabrics
“This would be a perfect fabric to spruce up any outdoor space. Planters filled with red or coral geraniums, coleus, or other chartreuse leafy plants would be stunning!”
