  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) June 06, 2012 - Solair® Shade Solutions (Solair®) - a line of residential shade products from Tri Vantage ®, LLC - announces the exclusive availability of the Mayfield Collection® of Sunbrella® fabrics for its retractable awnings sold in patio stores. Featuring more than 30 Sunbrella colors and patterns, the collection adds to the standard Sunbrella collection of nearly 200 solids, textures and stripes to complement existing indoor and outdoor décor and create beautifully styled living areas.

    The Sunbrella design team travels internationally to identify the future of outdoor design. Currently, experts are finding texture and cool tones to be top trends for the outdoor space as well as making the outdoor area look and feel like the home's interior.

    "With the burst of interest in the outdoor room, homeowners are looking for their outdoor area to reflect a seamless extension of their indoor space - allowing a Solair awning to serve as both a window treatment that can be viewed from the inside and a stylish shade structure for the outdoors," said Gina Wicker, design and creative director, Glen Raven, Inc. "Through the Mayfield Collection of fabrics, homeowners can easily create a continuous flow from the inside out using their Solair awning to coordinate with indoor and outdoor furniture and design themes."

    Fabrics in the Mayfield Collection are designed specifically to coordinate with Sunbrella's stylish furniture fabrics, offering a unique opportunity for homeowners to match their awning with furniture pieces in addition to their home's outdoor architecture. These durable awning fabrics play into current trends while also offering classic styles that consistently trend over time.

    "A new stripe in the Mayfield collection - Moreland - takes its inspiration from our very popular texture - Silica - which has a natural fiber look that is right on trend with what we're seeing in interior spaces, helping homeowners create a cohesive look. Additionally, textured fabrics can be more forgiving to natural outdoor elements like pollen," said Wicker. "Both Silica and Moreland are available in a range of versatile neutrals ranging from warm Silica Sesame to cool Moreland Taupe, allowing consumers to choose an awning that fits with their home's exterior as well as their interior and outdoor furniture."

    Exclusively featuring Sunbrella fabrics, Solair awnings allow customers to protect their families, guests and furniture from 98 percent of the sun's UV rays while providing flexible shade and style. The two awning models offered by Solair through patio retailers - the PS2000 and the PS5000 - help create the ideal outdoor living experience for comfortable outdoor entertaining at the push of a button.

    Now available at more than 170 patio furniture retailers throughout the United States, purchasing a Solair awning is simple. Homeowners can find participating retailers by visiting
