Happy, happy Monday, chic readers! We hope you had an amazing weekend. Ours was super fun and jam-packed with High Point Market activities, including taking over the Instagram account of one of our most favorite companies: Sunbrella!

We all know that, when it comes to outdoor fabrics, Sunbrella is the gold standard, hands-down. But if you haven’t thought about Sunbrella indoors, you’re missing out. The best designers in the country–like the one and only Mark Sikes–have embraced using Sunbrella as a go-to indoor fabric.

If you think all white is a little ambitious for your outdoor space, think again. Sunbrella makes it easy to keep cushions and outdoor drapes looking as fresh as they day they were installed.

To a cabana that wows, this is all Sunbrella. And it’s fabulous. For stress-free, totally chic living, it’s the only way to go. 

The talented ladies from She She painted this gorgeous art on site at Sunbrella with cherry juice, strawberry ice cream, pistachio ice cream and mustard, only to have the canvas wiped clean 2 hours later.  We loved seeing the power of Sunbrella’s stain resistance fabrics in action!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

We had the best, best time at High Point Market last week. One of the highlights, for sure, was taking over Sunbrella’s Instagram page.

They’re a company that needs no introduction, really, a brand that has become synonymous with top quality outdoor fabrics.

But the best part of our takeover was learning that Sunbrella is so, so much more than just outdoor fabric.

We were so impressed with the array of textures, patterns and styles that we’re convinced there’s nowhere we can’t use Sunbrella! From our living room couches…

And their drapery line? We’re redoing all of ours! A drapery fabric that won’t fade is almost too good to be true.

New, fun, exciting Sunbrella patterns and colors abounded in High Point.

But nothing can top those big, bold stripes that Sunbrella does so well.
