8 Purposes for High-performance Upholstery

If you’re designing a luxurious outdoor space, the choice of upholstery fabrics plays a vital role in creating an environment that combines both style and durability. With stain and water-repellent EXTEX fabrics that are as stylish as they are durable, you can transform any space into a haven of comfort and sophistication.

Explore EXTEX’s creative purposes for high-performance upholstery, and discover how you can use our fabrics in a variety of ways.

1. Luxurious outdoor lounges

Luxury outdoor fabrics have revolutionised the concept of lounging outside. Gone are the days when outdoor seating was limited to stiff, uncomfortable options. With designer outdoor textiles, you can create sumptuous lounge areas that rival the comfort of indoor spaces.

These fabrics are designed to withstand the elements while providing the opulent feel and aesthetic you’re looking for. Whether it's a high-end hotel terrace or a private villa's patio, these fabrics can turn any outdoor space into a haven of relaxation.

Inspired by Moroccan design, our collection of opulent Jewel fabrics are ideal for any outdoor lounge space. Both striking and functional, our Jewel chenille is guaranteed to inject a dose of colour into every occasion.

2. Elegant al fresco dining

High-performance upholstery is not just about looks; it's about durability too. Stain and water-repellent fabrics are engineered to be resilient and easy-care. They are perfect for crafting outdoor furniture that can endure sun, rain, and everything in between.

Our Japanese-inspired collection, ENSÕ, is perfect for al fresco dining. Designed by Nigel Atkinson, soft, chic-embossed chenille is available in 10 tranquil colours.

3. Spa retreats

Spas are all about relaxation and indulgence, and the choice of fabrics in these serene environments is no exception. Luxury outdoor fabrics offer soft textures as well as durability, making them ideal for spa furnishings.

From plush spa loungers to cosy treatment room seating, these fabrics create an atmosphere of opulence and comfort. Our Mull chenille fabrics are water-repellent and stain-resistant — perfect for spa settings, where spills and moisture are common.

4. Beachside practicality

Beachfront properties often require a delicate balance between style and practicality. Designer outdoor textiles are the perfect solution. They provide the elegance and luxury that beachfront hotels and villas demand, all while being robust enough to withstand the salty sea breeze and occasional splashes.

Inspired by sun-kissed memories and beach holidays, our Camber collection adds a playful touch to beachside lounges — offering guests a joyful experience.

5. Versatile drapery solutions

High-performance upholstery fabrics are not limited to seating alone. Our Outline collection, for example, also makes for an excellent choice for drapery. Whether you want to frame a breathtaking view or create privacy in an outdoor space, these fabrics can do it all.

They are pre-shrunk and machine washable, ensuring that they maintain their shape and beauty even after repeated use and cleaning. The contemporary designs and advanced yarn technology also contribute to their versatility, making them suitable for various drapery applications.

6. Yacht interior status

Are you looking to give your boat interiors a revamp? High-performance upholstery fabrics find a natural home in the interiors of luxury yachts. These fabrics were originally created to dress uncovered deck areas on superyachts, and their elegance and durability make them an ideal choice for the yacht's interior spaces as well.

From the plush seating in the saloon to cosy cabins and sophisticated dining areas, our Haze fabrics bring together a combination of opulence and resilience that is essential for life on the open seas. And at night, our luminescent Solar fabric is perfect to add a glow-in-the-dark ambient touch to every evening. Stain and water-repellent features ensure that spills and accidents are easily managed, allowing yacht owners and guests to enjoy their time on board in style and comfort.

7. Rooftop oasis

Transforming a rooftop into an oasis of relaxation and entertainment requires the right choice of materials. High-performance upholstery fabrics are ideal for rooftop spaces, providing a blend of luxury and durability.

Whether it's a rooftop lounge, bar, or garden, our Plume fabrics allow you to add a pop of colour to any space with quirky chevron chenille, creating a stylish and comfortable haven high above the city. Their resistance to stains and water ensures that your rooftop oasis remains pristine even in unpredictable weather conditions, making it the perfect retreat for both daytime and evening gatherings.

8. Outdoor cinema comfort

Imagine watching your favourite films under the starry sky in your garden or on a beachfront property. High-performance upholstery fabrics can be used to create comfortable seating arrangements for outdoor cinemas.

Whether it's cushioned sofas, comfortable bean bags, or our Wave cushions, these fabrics add a touch of luxury to the cinematic experience. Their durability ensures that your outdoor cinema furniture can withstand repeated use, providing entertainment for family and friends while enjoying the great outdoors.
