I have been using Sunbrella in the garden for many different things besides upholstery, umbrellas, decorative pillows etc. I like to use about a yard cut (54" wide) as a throw on a lounge chair. Great for cover-up when it gets cool or to protect from sun. It also brings a splash of color. We have a wardrobe of Sunbrella patterns to use as table covers. Great for parties because you never have to worry about spilled wine or barbecue sauce. In the wash with a cup of bleach. This is my pattern St.Tropez; a classic French Stripe.
