Spring Market Review Designer Luncheon

We recently hosted our first annual Spring Market Review Designer Luncheon, where we invited some of our favorite outside designers to come in for lunch and a presentation of all the new Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Spring Market intro’s!   Michael Cantwell of MGBW did a fabulous job of preparing a slideshow with all the new products.  Here is a quick look at what all went on…

Outdoor fabrics we love…

Its SUMMER!  Which means it is time to sit by the pool by day and grill outside with friends by night!  Why not brighten up your back porch or pool deck with some functional and beautiful outdoor fabrics?  We love using outdoor fabrics not only for outdoor projects, but for indoor projects as well!  Since outdoor fabrics are so durable and easy to clean (on top of looking great!), why NOT use them inside?  They are especially great for families with small children.  Take a look at these great patterns:
