Though taupe and beige still reign as the most popular color choices for outdoor seating on cushions and slings, consumers are making a point to show retailers it's not all about staying in neutral. Bronze and copper, along with reds, oranges, greens and blues, are making quite an impact in the industry. Here is a sampling of what to expect this year in fabric.
| John Wolf, a division of Richloom Fabrics Group; Madison in the Solarium Collection
100% ACRYLIC BASE CLOTH. With a sophisticated paisley pattern, Madison combines greens, blues and browns for a subtle yet elegant approach.
DuraCord Textiles; Acapulco, Ocean100% DURACORD.
Fade- and stain-resistant, Acapulco has a floral medallion design in a repeat pattern in aqua and bright green.
Carolina Specialty Fabrics, division of Carolina Mills; Casual Transitions Trellis
100% SOLUTION-DYED ACRYLIC. A solid cactus green dobby with a small trellis geometric pattern. The fabric features a soil-release and water-repellant finish.
Robert Allen Group; Alfresco Cluster Stripe, spring
100% OLEFIN. A combination of stripes and geometric floral patterns in a combination of yellow, green and terra cotta.
