GLEN RAVEN, N.C., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Solair® Shade Solutions (Solair®) retractable awnings help enrich the outdoor living space by providing a fresh, modern and beautiful way to add comfortable shade to the outdoor room. Now, Solair awnings sold in patio stores are available in the Mayfield Collection® of Sunbrella® fabrics, helping homeowners create an outdoor space that looks and feels like the home's interior.
Fabrics in the Mayfield Collection are designed specifically to coordinate with Sunbrella's stylish furniture fabrics. Featuring more than 30 colors and patterns, the Mayfield Collection adds to the standard Sunbrella collection of nearly 200 solids, textures and stripes to complement existing indoor and outdoor decor and create beautifully styled living areas.
"With the burst of interest in the outdoor room, homeowners are looking for their outdoor area to reflect a seamless extension of their indoor space – allowing a Solair awning to serve as both a window treatment that can be viewed from the inside and a stylish shade structure for the outdoors," said Gina Wicker, design and creative director for Glen Raven, Inc., makers of Sunbrella. "Through the Mayfield Collection, homeowners can easily create a continuous flow from the inside out using their Solair awning to coordinate with indoor and outdoor furniture and design themes."
In addition to creating an outdoor area that reflects a home's interior, Sunbrella design team experts are finding texture and cool tones to be top trends for the outdoor space.
"A new stripe in the Mayfield collection – Moreland – takes its inspiration from our very popular texture – Silica – which has a natural fiber look that is right on trend with what we're seeing in interior spaces, helping homeowners create a cohesive look. Additionally, textured fabrics can be more forgiving to natural outdoor elements like pollen," said Wicker.
Solair awnings offer customers protection from 98 percent of the sun's UV rays while providing flexible shade and style. Solair awnings can also help families save money by creating a vacation ambience in their own backyard. The two models offered through patio retailers – PS2000 and PS5000 – help create the ideal outdoor living experience for comfortable outdoor entertaining at the push of a button.
Now available at more than 170 patio furniture retailers throughout the United States, purchasing a Solair awning is simple. Homeowners can find participating retailers by visiting http://www.solair.com/find-a-retailer/.
