We have just returned from a wonderful vacation to Telluride, Colorado. The weather was temperate, a wonderful reprieve from the 100+ degree Texas heat.

Finally, fabrics that make your outdoor spaces an extension of your indoor style– outdoor velvets.  Not only do they offer a chic seasonal change for outside,  but they provide practical benefits that will make you want to experience the luxury inside as well.  These soft plush velvets are virtually indestructible; they are made of 100% solution died acrylic, fortifying them against the wear of entertaining, kids & pets– making them increasingly popular choices for dens, game rooms, and high usage living areas.  They come with a 3 year warranty against fading and are extremely cleanable- most spills bead up and roll off to the floor. If you would like more information contact us.

PS- If you would like to get your pets their own cool furniture, go to Uttermost. I dare you to not buy something!
