Sunbrella sofa?

Posted by ajp76 (My Page) on

Hi, Does anyone have a sofa or sectional covered in sunbrella fabric? I've fallen in love with a really soft, plush sectional that can be ordered in sunbrella. Unfortunately the showroom doesn't have it on the floor. I can choose slipcover or upholstered. They did have a few on the floor done in sunbrella, but they were a totally different style sofa and not that plush pillow back style, so I couldn't get a feel for how it would look in sunbrella. What I want is that pottery barn "plush and fluffy" look and I'm afraid sunbrella fabric will look stiff and "hard".
The sofa I liked looks similar to this (not the same one)

The styles they had on the showroom floor (in sunbrella) were similar to this:
Totally hated the feel of the sunbrella on this style couch. I can't tell if the fabric on the couch I loved will feel and look the same as the white cotton/canvas they had it displayed in. The SA just said it would look "the same" but with a custom order I need to know.
Do any of you have this style couch in sunbrella? What are your opinions of the look and feel of it?
Thank you!!!

I love this design of sofa too, and need mine recovered due to sun damage . I do believe sunbrella materials are fine, but have not located anyone reasonable in my area to recover sofa...........Will await replies to your post

RE: Sunbrella sofa?

I was disappointed that none of my favorite sunbrella choices were on the floor for me to see and touch. I did see one sofa on the floor with a fabric that I loved in the sample book, but the sofa itself was so stiff looking that I couldn't tell if I would like it on my sofa choice. Oh well. I will keep waiting...the price of the sectional in the sunbrella fabric was over budget for now anyways. If I knew I would love it I'd make it happen though! Good luck finding someone in your area!
