The sheer versatility of Rowe’s custom furnishings combined with Sunbrella’s durable beauty offers endless potential for spaces that deliver design without compromise.

Often working in her preferred palette of neutrals with subtle accents of color, Michelle feels “it would be incredibly difficult to accomplish the designs we love most if it weren’t for Sunbrella’s high-performance fabrics.” The designer considers having the confidence to source white fabric to a client with young children and endless beach days ahead a welcome breath of fresh air in a world of truly impossible-to-clean fabrics. Whether destined to be a space for adult entertaining or a cozy nest for family time, Michelle’s relaxed yet elegant approach is a perfect match for Sunbrella’s long-lasting softness and style.

Pro-Tips: How Michelle Brings the Outdoors In

  • Location – Bringing the “outdoors inside” requires being aware of the location of the space, being intentional to use organic design elements in a way that makes sense to the environment of the home.
  • Palette – Color selection should refer to the space’s surroundings, drawing on nature for inspiration.
  • Greenery – The use of plants both faux and real brings life to any room, a go-to for any space needing a little lift.

Top 3 Things Michelle Loves about Working with Sunbrella

  • Selection – Our whole team is excited about the fabric selections Sunbrella offers and is quick to recommend them to everyone!
  • Performance – To be so excited about a performance fabric that looks, feels, and acts to the standards we expect for our clients is encouraging.
  • Luxury – Often we work with clients who have beach homes and want the luxury of upholstered fabrics without the worry of how they will respond to those long beach days or sandy-toed kids. Being able to provide an option we love and trust is a gift and something our design team appreciates.
