Tips to Get Outdoor Living Spaces Ready for Fall

After the long summer, the orange leaves slowly plummeting to the ground is a welcome sight. Finally, the temperatures are dropping, even in sunny Arizona! What better way to welcome Fall than to prepare your outdoor living space, so you can enjoy the scenery with your family and friends? Here are ways you can refresh your backyard for the fall season.

Deep Cleaning Your Patio


It’s important to give your patio a little scrubbing down once in a while. Fall season will bring in a lot of debris and insects into your deck or patio, so it’s important to sweep them off as often as you can. Use a pressure washer to deep clean wood or tile flooring with difficult stains. But remember, while pressure washers be fine for some surfaces, it can also peel off grout between concrete and turn wood softer. So remember to keep a six-inch distance from the wood and don’t set the power too high.

Replace or Reupholster Outdoor Furniture


Create a stylish outdoor space where your guests can feel comfortable while enjoying the fall breeze. If the summer heat did a number on your upholstered outdoor furniture, consider having them reupholstered with high-quality fabric like Sunbrella. Sunbrella fabrics are waterproof, stain proof, and doesn’t fade. It’s also great for high traffic areas where you entertain guests or lounge around with family.

Slipcovers, Cushions, and Pillows


You can never go wrong with adding more comfort in your lounge area. Outdoor cushions and pillows don’t only provide comfort, they also uplift the space if you use colorful fabric. Slipcovers are also a great way of protecting your furniture while keeping it comfy. One trick is to make sure you use contrasting colors. For example, if you’re using blue slipcovers, orange and yellow pillows can provide a striking contrast. Making use of patterns against plains is also a must!

Get Your Lawn Ready for Fall


Raking leaves and keeping your lawn clean may sound tedious, but it’s necessary. By raking leaves, you’re allowing your lawn to breathe. Piles of moist leaves may invite pests and insects, and this is why you should never miss cleaning your lawn. You can also turn fallen leaves into mulch to fertilize bare soil. Your pool also needs regular cleaning if it’s not covered. Pruning shrubs and branches can also help prevent more debris from falling into your pool or deck.

Why Sunbrella is Perfect for Indoor or Outdoor Upholstery and Drapery

In the fall months, there is nothing better than sitting in your patio, enjoying the fresh air, or cozying up indoors while enjoying a hot drink. You wouldn’t want to spoil moments like this with scratchy seats and dull drapery.

Choosing a good fabric for indoor or outdoor use is the key to being comfortable in any part of your home. Sunbrella is a versatile fabric that does just that. Here are the reasons why we love Sunbrella, and so should you!

Easy to clean


Outdoor parties are expected to get your furniture some stains. With Sunbrella, there’s no reason to cry over spilled wine. Sunbrella fabrics are made of a plastic substance called acrylic. It is less absorbent than cloth which makes it easier to clean and does not leave permanent stains. Check Sunbrella’s stain chart to remove that unwanted dirt efficiently.

Featured Fabric: Artistry

Made of 100% Sunbrella Acrylic. Comes in two colors: Indigo and Ash. This fabric looks best when paired with dark wood stains.

More Comfortable


Sunbrella is great for a lot of things – grill covers, awnings, slipcovers. But the best use for this fabric is for cushions, pillows, couches, and chairs. In short, it’s made for comfort. It is made with acrylic fabric that has a softer feel than other outdoor fabrics.

Long-Lasting 


The most important factor when it comes to upholstered furniture whether for indoor or outdoor use, is durability. Sunbrella fabrics are resistant to water, stains, and fading. It’s mold and mildew proof so it’s perfect for places with high humidity. These fabrics are also UV resistant making it exceptional in color retention.

Wide Selection for Any Style


What else can brighten your living space other than beautiful patterns or colors that match every room in your home?  Sunbrella has a massive collection of 3,000 designs, so you’re sure to find one that complements your taste.

We offer custom upholstery services for indoor and outdoor furniture using Sunbrella Fabrics. You can get any fabric in our Sunbrella collection in as little as two days.

Top 5 Most Popular Southwestern Fabrics

Southwestern culture is inspired by nature - valleys, trees, rocks, sand, desert animals, and more. These themes are clearly expressed in most southwestern fabrics. The earthy tones depict the color of The Valley from sunrise to sunset. Here are the 5 most popular southwestern fabrics that can transform your Arizona home:

Sedona


Geometric patterns are recurring themes in southwestern fabric. Sedona has a colorful geometic pattern. You can easily mix and match these with plain colors, or just use it on a whole piece. The fabric is made of acrylic, polyester and cotton. It comes in 4 variations, namely Sunset, Cactus, Desert, and Canyon. These variation comes in earth colors that can be easily paired with leather or any plain, dark fabric. 

Desert Saguaro


This fabric features a dramatic Southwestern scene. The sprawling mountains, Saguaro cacti and the colorful sand is picturesque, so it's perfect for accent pieces like valances and benches. Desert Saguaro is made of 60% cotton and 40% polyester.

Phoenix


The contrasting hues of red and blue can turn any dull room around. Phoenix is a Southwestern Strip fabric made of Chenille. The fabric feels comfortable, so it’s perfect for couches, cushions, and more.

Chaco Cactus


This might not feature the usual southwestern patterns, but we still consider it to be one of our best southwestern fabrics! This contemporary fabric littered with desert foliage and cacti is a fun twist to the southwestern aesthetic.

Cleaning these fabrics depends on how they are used, and their texture and durability. Don’t hesitate to ask our staff for advice on cleaning these fabrics.

Top Reasons to Upholster an Old Piece of Furniture

Whether you’re moving into a new home or redecorating, you can’t help but notice old furniture that has been lying around for years. Maybe you bought it years ago, or it was inherited from a family member. Be it an old lounge chair, faded couch, or ripped cushions, the urge to replace old furniture is strong because it looks out of place, or outdated. But is it really practical to get rid of them and buy a new one? If you want to refresh your furniture, reupholstering might just do the trick.

New Look, Old Memories


An ottoman you bought with your first salary, the chair cushions you bought for your first house, or your father’s favorite chair - things with sentimental value are hard to throw away. That doesn’t mean you’d have to keep them in your garage so new ones can take their place. With proper care, they can serve as family heirlooms. Classic pieces of furniture can easily be modified to fit your current style. It just needs the right kind of fabric and skilled reupholsterers.

Client Testimonial


Thank you a million for revitalizing our Queen Anne's so beautifully! I told My husband that the style might date us but then he reminded me that the antique set is 1800’s!! I started to take inventory of the entire room and average age of furniture is 1800 with a nod to 1700 in wall coverings!!! We now have trendy fabric! - Happy Tucson Customer

Better Fabric for Longevity and Style


When choosing the right upholstery-grade fabric, you have to take some things into consideration: Do you want the space to appear bright, simple, or intricate? Who’s going to use the space? How often is it going to be used? For example, Mildew-proof fabrics like Sunbrella is great for both indoor and outdoor use. Aside from being easy to clean, it can withstand high traffic, so you don’t have to worry about it being used to often. Most upholstery-grade fabrics comes in different textures, colors, and patterns that can match any space in your home. The possibilities of customization are endless.

Environmentally Friendly


We need to bring back the good old habit of fixing things when they’re broken. The idea of getting new furniture may sound great, but nothing beats the feeling of giving old things new value.  Re-upholstering lengthens the life of your furniture. By simply modifying your old couch or chair, you’re creating far less waste, and using less energy. 

High Quality, High Value


Don’t throw out Granny’s Victorian-style chairs just yet. Oftentimes, older furniture is made with high quality materials & unique designs that is held at high value these days. Breath new life into it by choosing durable, elegant, upholstery-grade fabrics- making them looks as good as new. If you can’t find a place in your home for old furniture, why not reupholster and refurbish them? If it doesn't fit your home's style, you can easily put it up on ebay or Craigslist - that way you’ll have funds to buy a new, modern couch or chair for your living room. Fabrics That Go makes custom-made furniture to fit your style >>

Commercial Fabric Projects

Running a successful business requires many things, but for many, the most important aspect is customer experience. Does your establishment reflect your desired aesthetic and meet your standards? It’s important to keep your furniture and drapery maintained, along with making sure they work together in an appealing manner. If your business’ drapery, chairs, booths, benches, etc look drab, faded, or outdated- we have solutions.

Upholstery for Any Establishment


One of the best ways to illustrate your establishment’s style is through furniture upholstery and drapery. After all, most service establishments’ frontline is customer comfort. Choose the best fabric that best represents your business’ brand and identity.  High-grade upholstery is good for almost any type of business for example:

  • Doctor’s office - Waiting room benches, chairs, washable medical table covers 
  • Pet Clinic - Pet beds, finisher stools 
  • Bars and restaurants - Booth seating, outdoor pads, bar chairs 
  • Inns and Hotel - Foyer furniture  

Why High-Grade Upholstery?


Using high-grade upholstery for your business has many benefits. For example, you don’t have to deal with problems like warping, or fabric fraying.

High-grade upholstery fabrics are usually odor-releasing and stain resistant. They’re also unlikely to shrink and warp or come apart at the seams.

You can get a high-density, antimicrobial foam that is firmer, and better for high traffic areas in your business establishment. 

Make sure to upholster your outdoor furniture in the most fade-resistant, durable fabric, Sunbrella. Fabrics That Go has a vast collection of Sunbrella Fabric available for purchase, and provides complete services for outdoor cushions, pillows, and drapery. Sunbrella is also popular to use indoors for its ease of cleaning.

Reupholstering Existing Furniture


You don't need to replace your business' furniture. One of the best things about reupholstering old furniture is that you get to keep a piece of your establishment's history while giving it a new look. It’s also a great way to keep your business environmentally-friendly because you generate less waste by upcycling old items. 

Keeping existing seating, while updating furniture upholstery using new upholstery fabric with stylish & upgraded functionality, could be the rejuvenation your business needs

Custom Drapery Projects

Businesses need custom drapery for style and to block unwanted sun and heat. Choose the perfect fabric and Fabrics That Go handles the rest. Professional measurements, free quote on how much fabric you'll need & how much it will cost, plus installation (local).

Show Off Your Arizona Pride with Southwestern Pieces in Your Home

Arizona has a unique culture and that can easily be shown in architecture and interior design. This distinct Southwestern style is colorful yet sophisticated and can be used with many other interior styles. It’s not that hard to incorporate this style into your home. Show off your Arizona pride with these simple tips:

 

Show Sophistication with Patterns


Pendelton, cabin, southwestern, Mexican, serape & Navajo patterns have all have cultural significance. Most of these patterns use colors akin to the Southwestern landscape and serves as a testament to lineage and heritage.

Oftentimes, people associate class, style, and taste to the weavers dedicated to reclaiming this style.

In hues of brown and red, sometimes even green and blue, these patterns break the monotony in the negative spaces of your home. Adding southwestern patterned pillows with vibrant colors to a plain couch can be a great idea.

Try mixing and matching to see which works best for you.

Add Variety to Space


Some Southwestern style fabrics integrate very well with most Arizona homes. It adds a pop of color while retaining the cozy, inviting feeling. The patterns are interesting enough to uplift a space, but not loud enough to stick out like a sore thumb.

This sofa is the epitome of southwestern color. You can add the most amazing upholstery pillows in the style you're looking for to accent the plain space.

Furs, hides, and leathers also make perfect southwestern accent pieces. Fabrics That Go has a wide variety to choose from, IN-STOCK!

Update Worn Down Furniture


Incorporating Southwestern style into your home doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. A great idea would be reupholstering a beat up wooden chair,  an old ottoman, or a faded couch. Simply use the fabrics as valances, table runners or throw pillows covers. Stick with the existing palettes in your home when choosing a new fabric.

Most Popular Southwestern Fabric

Chaco Sage is one of Fabric That Go's most popular upholstery fabric. Custom-made furniture using this lovely fabric is available in our shop.

Cactus Patterned Chair $700.00

Claire’s Rare Button Collection

Seeing some objects from the past often brings nostalgic feelings. We are often brought back in time by the sight of these objects. Some objects inspire our artistic side and get our creativity flowing. The vintage buttons in Claire's Rare Button Collection, which she collected over the decades, are capable of invoking both within us. Today these rare buttons can be considered vintage and would be very hard to find anywhere else.

 

Claire


Claire Grunstein is the 91-year-old owner of Fabrics that go. She came to Tucson with her husband Herman in the late ’70s with the intention of retiring. She retired from her family’s textile business in New Jersey. Retirement did not sit well with the hardworking couple though, and they decided to open a tiny hobby shop a few months after retiring. The tiny hobby shop grew into what is now Fabrics That Go.

Now 74 years and at 91 years old, Claire is one of the oldest hands-on proprietors in the country. Although the day-to-day operations of the business are handled by her son Robert, she still works up to 30 hours a week and you can usually see her if you drop by the store.

The Button Collection


One of Claire’s passions is collecting buttons, and she currently has an incredibly large rare button collection. These pieces were accumulated over time. There are thousands of buttons in the collection and all of them are for sale depending on the rarity and availability. They can range from a lot in stock to only a few buttons left. Most of these rare buttons are of antique quality and made with superb craftsmanship.

The Materials


The materials used to make these buttons are equally rare and exotic. There are those made from Czechoslovakia glass, Indian metals, silver, and bakelite. There are also those made of organic materials like Mother of Pearl, bone, horn and tree nut.

You’ll even find pieces that are works of art in themselves, like the beaded buttons and the fabric covered ones.

What They Are Used For


These rare buttons are normally used on clothing but they can also be used to decorate pillows and upholstery. Quilters enjoy using these buttons on their pieces because of their great variety. Due to the artistic qualities of these rare buttons, they are even used for jewelry like children’s charms and as decorations and clasps on purses. They have even been embedded on coffee tables. The possibilities are endless!

The Ultimate Southwestern Home Decor Guide

The Sonoran Desert is in full bloom once again. You look around your Arizona home and you’re hit with the sudden urge for renewal. As you scramble to do some spring cleaning and re-decoration, you face a hard truth: It’s not that easy to keep up with changing interior design trends every year. So what should you do? Find a style you love and stick with it. When in doubt, embrace local culture. Southwestern design has a lot to offer in terms of visual appeal. It is versatile, and it can be fused with many different interior styles. To help get you started, we give you: The Ultimate Southwestern Home Decor Guide.

Desert Tones


What sets the Southwestern style from most is its use of warm tones and contrasting colors. But these colors aren’t chosen arbitrarily. As the culture is deeply rooted in symbolism, colors used represent nature. In this case, they represent the desert sand and the sky.

Shades of brown, red, and sometimes orange fabric can be used to upholster wooden furniture like accent chairs, benches and couches.

Shades of blue like azure, turquoise, cobalt, and indigo, are often used to contrast the warm, reddish tones. The key is being consistent with your palette, instead of going overboard with too many patterns and contrasting colors.

Fabrics and Patterns


Recent design trends use bold southwestern patterns to heighten an otherwise plain space. Patterned valances go well with plain drapes, for example. Suede and leather chairs with brownish tones look great with patterned throws. In the dining room, southwestern fabric can be used as table runners and as upholstery for dining chairsPatterns can also be used as decorative pieces like tapestries and living room blankets.

Decorative Pieces


Wooden furniture is a staple of southwestern design. The look is achieved through combination of different types of wood or wood grain colors. Decorative pieces can be used as functional items as well: woven baskets can be used as living room storage, and local pottery can replace the usual vases.

Fabrics That Go has the largest collection of Southwestern Fabric! Add a touch of Beautiful Southwestern culture into your home.

As extra storage and seating, patterned ottomans can also be a lovely addition to the living room.

Of course, your home wouldn't be complete without some indoor flora. Dried flowers and cacti are the usual go-to indoor plants, but plants with large, deep green leaves also fits well.

Southwestern-Contemporary Fusion


The versatility of Southwestern and desert-inspired design shines when matched with different styles. You can see these pieces used in minimalist, boho, and even rustic interior design.

Rustic or natural style furniture (rough wood cuts, driftwood, distressed wood) look excellent with patterns and desert tones.

Woven pattern rugs and carpets blend well with metal furniture used in minimalist setups.

As accent and decor, southwestern pieces blend well with almost any muted color. Southwestern design intrinsically adds a lot of flair to your home, but it can also be subtle enough to add elegance.

Creating the Perfect Arizona Backyard

It may not seem like it, but spring is just around the corner. With spring comes warmer weather - and with the temperature rising, what better way to enjoy it than to relax outside in your backyard? Here are a few tips and tricks to create the perfect backyard:

 

Garden


One step in creating the perfect oasis is to garden. Whether you’re planting flowers, bushes, or vegetables, make sure you plan for the right plants for the season! It may take more time than you can bear to wait, but consider planting a tree. When it grows, it will provide natural shade and cooler temperatures in your backyard.

Update Your Patio Furniture


You can replace your old patio furniture completely, or you can reupholster what you already have using the same fabric as your umbrella. Fabrics That Go offers full service upholstery and can order Sunbrella fabric to arrive in just a few days. Hot tip: Sunbrella fabric doesn’t need to be used solely outside - it’s great for indoor furniture as it cleans up easily for both spills and homes with pets!

Replace Your Umbrella


If you don’t want to wait for a tree to grow to give off natural shade, purchase a patio umbrella or replace the torn fabric on an old one! When looking to replace old umbrella fabric, make sure you choose the right one. It needs to be water resistant and not fade easily in the sun. Consider using Sunbrella fabric - famous for its durability and wide range of colors available. You can find this fabric at your Tucson’s own Fabrics That Go!

Install An Awning


Another shade solution is to install an awning. There are many options to choose from, but remember, you don’t have to replace the whole awning if just the fabric is torn. If you find your current or future awning fabric has not held up, replace it with Fabrics That Go. They will remove, measure and install for you!

Once you have made all these updates to your home, relax in your new (or feels like new) furniture under the shade of your umbrella or awning. Remember to thank Fabrics That Go for making your life easier and your home feel refreshed and renewed!

Fabrics That Go is a one stop shop for all your upholstery needs, from indoor to outdoor furniture! Our staff is skilled in custom upholstery and will work according to your needs and specifications!
