High Performance

Two vibrant outdoor-fabric collections unite durability and panache

ISLAND FLAIR
Lively, graphic patterns characterize Nautilus, a line of fabric, trim and wallpaper from Schumacher that evokes island flair. Pictured against the backdrop of Maximus, a large-scale cotton geometric print in a two-tone diamond pattern: Coralline, a scallop pattern with twisted rope borders, available as a linen-cotton blend or as wallpaper; and Avila Embroidery, an embroidered diamond-chevron pattern on a linen ground. Below the fabrics, a polyester-linen trim, Ormond Tape, provides a complementary finishing touch. Available at Schumacher in the Washington Design Center. fschumacher.com

STURDY + STYLISH
Roughly translated, farniente means relaxation in Italian—which makes it the perfect name for this outdoor-upholstery collection by French fabric and wallpaper manufacturer Élitis. Handwoven from a hardy polyester blend to resemble linen, Farniente is a line of 39 weatherproof fabrics that make outdoor living easy. Solids and geometric patterns mingle in a wide range of complementary colorways. elitis.fr
