This just in – Gold is back!

I’ll be the first to admit that fashion trends don’t often catch my attention.  Like many of you, my job, family, friends, and household take up much of my time.  But little-by-little I’ve been noticing something in my periphery.  I think it started gradually.  Now it seems like it’s everywhere.  What is it?  Gold.

When did gold fabrics come back into style?

I’m a child of the 70’s so I’ve seen gold work its magic before.  Glittery lamé and faux gold finishes shone through the disco era, and eventually faded away, until now.

Sunbrella, one of our most popular outdoor woven fabrics, has brought in some really incredible golds.  In fact, if you ask for the Gold Colour Family on their shade site, there are at least 20 different colours that come up, more if you add in upholstery fabrics.  Here are some samples:

Amazing, right?  But it’s not just the woven fabrics that are in on it.  The vinyls and shade screens are joining the glossy parade with some golds of their own.  Take a peek at the images below and I think you’ll agree, gold is back, and it’s lookin’ good!
