Beautiful fabrics and fine furnishings can help personalise your outdoor room, adding colour and pizzazz. Get the latest trends in outdoor cushions.
Elements are experts in outdoor soft furnishings, and its range of outdoor cushions are not only diverse in colours, patterns and textures, but also durable, weatherproof and affordable.
Anna Day from Elements is keen on the “mix and match” trend this season. She suggests mixing stripes, solids and patterns when it comes to outdoor fabrics. “Use a couple of solid base fabrics then mix it up with occasional cushions to create a bold and dynamic outlook,” Anna says, also suggesting the selection of occasional cushions in varying sizes and shapes for even more interest.
Elements’ range of custom-made outdoor bench cushions, seat pads, daybed and sun lounger cushions, bolsters and scatter cushions can glam up any bare area, creating a complete outdoor space. For those who like to create their own style, a bespoke colour and design consultation service is available and Elements can graphically superimpose outdoor cushions into a landscape to illustrate what your space will look like.
The difference between Elements and ordinary cushions is in the Sunbrella fabrics, which come with a five-year warranty. Made from 100 per cent solution-dyed acrylics, the fabric is resistant to UV rays, dirt, mould, salt and chlorine. The acrylic is a breathable fabric and is water repellent due to a chemical-treatment process. Elements’ soft furnishings are further weatherproofed with a special foam filling and maritime-grade threads and zips. These fabrics are easy to clean and maintain — simply hose off dirt or wash the covers in the washing machine. There is no need to cover up or bring your cushions inside to protect them.
With a large range of scatter and occasional cushions available online, you can turn your garden or courtyard into a chic outdoor sanctuary in no time.
