Pastels, patterns, geometric inspirations, various textures… around a hundred Sunbrella references are now distributed in two collections Odyssey and Bahia. By clarifying its offer, the textile manufacturer outdoor hopes to attract more markets, especially the indoor one, where it is starting to establish itself.
Sunbrella’s French design studio has decided to clarify its offer by identifying two collections: Odyssey and Bahia , and therefore to change the temporalities of the books.
Odyssey, the long-term collection
In this new interpretation of Sunbrella’s offer, the Odyssey collection boasts 148 references, including 53 new products. There is the brand’s Solids canvas – very resistant as its name suggests – which offers a spectrum of 50 colors, with Ottoman, quilted, mottled effects. Among the novelties, Archi is ideal for seat use and is composed of 6 mineral and natural shades. We also find the jacquard of Komo, inspired by the braiding of raffia, the semi-plains and frosted shades of the Relax range, and the variation of Majestic, with a worked texture, enhanced by the light, which will also be suitable for curtains. than seat and cushion cover. Sling, woven in PVC and acrylic, will adapt particularly to outdoor furniture. Finally, Heritage skillfully completes the range with its vintage effect, which comes from its particular composition between virgin and recycled fibers. The lifespan of Odyssey is four years.
Bahia, reflection of lifestyles
At the same time, the Bahia collection will see renewals every two years. Very contemporary, warm, it is built on trends, more colorful elements, smaller, exuberant collections, notably with work on jacquards.
It brings together 57 references inspired by openness to the world. The colors are fresh, cheerful like in the Lopi range, or tonic (like Mezzo). Elsewhere the influences are clearly claimed: the Ikebana fabrics, in shimmering colors, take up a stylized plant motif in the style of a Chinese shadow. With its 4 summer colors, Foutah’s two-tone stripes recall the Mediterranean spirit and will perfectly cover a lounger.
At the same time, Sunbrella provides sheer collections for the home, and maintains its Marine range.
