SunbrellaFusionL3Tonal palettes that combine bright and muted colors with textures are gaining traction in the casual living and shade markets this year. Trivantage has what you need to offer customers what they want.

Casual Furniture

“Layering with texture to create variation in color and depth,” said Esther Chang, senior designer at Glen Raven, maker of Sunbrella® fabrics. “Pastels have been trending for a few seasons, and now we’re seeing a mixture of chalky, matte color with brighter, intense tones of the same hue — whether it’s shades of blues to greens, or reds to corals.”

For example, they may look to the 2016-2017 New Additions to the Sunbrella® Upholstery Collection for a study in blue-green. Start with a base of Sailcloth Space, a neutral taupe fabric for the larger cushions on an outdoor sofa. On top of that, layer pillows covered in a variety of blue-green fabrics that focus on texture and pattern, such as Cast Lagoon, a deep blue-green and Cast Mist, a light blue-green both with a linen appearance; Hybrid Sky, a textured fabric that combines blue-green and creamy white; Fretwork Mist, a jacquard weave that uses those same two colors in a geometric design; and Gateway Mist, which pulls together two shades of taupe and two shades of blue-green in a striped pattern.

Help your customers visualize the above fabric combination by using new search filters on Start by selecting “Upholstery” from the “Fabric” menu at the top of the homepage. Then select a fabric collection from the left-hand menu, and filter by “Primary Color,” “Secondary Color” or “Pattern Type.” To see fabrics side by side, click the “Select to Compare” box above the swatches you’d like to compare.

When it comes to choosing a color, throw the rules out the window.

“Make it your own and be unique,” said Greg Voorhis, design director for Sunbrella fabrics. “Homeowners should feel comfortable creating outdoor spaces that reflect their personal interests and style.”

Commercial Shade

Tonal color stories with an emphasis on texture are also becoming popular for commercial shade installations as businesses seek to define their brand before customers even step inside.

Grays are trending over the traditional black awning, as are brighter colors. Sunbrella offers several awning fabrics that play up texture:

  • Sunbrella Silica – Available in seven colorways, this awning and marine fabric incorporates slightly thicker yarns to add dimension.
  • Sunbrella Crest – Available in three colors, this fabric takes a similar approach to the Silica, but with smaller segments of thicker yarn and in a darker color than the main fabric.

The Sunbrella Decorative Shade Collection also offers ample opportunity to achieve a tonal palette:

  • Alloy – Alloy brings a metallic sheen to two-tone fabric. Available in two shades of gray and two shades of taupe.
  • Fundamental – Available in grey, black or taupe, Fundamental is a two-tone jacquard with a houndstooth pattern that adds sass and style to shade projects such as awnings or umbrellas.

Sunbrella Contour, a shade sail fabric, offers both bright color and texture for commercial projects where nontraditional shade is desired. Sunbrella Contour is a knit-textured fabric ideal for shade sails. It is available in 15 rich colors that help retail establishments make their presence known while also providing shade.

Regardless of your customers’ style preferences and business needs, look to Trivantage for the right fabrics to make your upholstery and shade projects shine.
