We’ve become so accustomed to beautiful natural fibres, textures and embellishments in our interior accessories that it was only going to be a matter of time before the same qualities would appear in outdoor cushions and rugs.

Making a second living ‘room’ outside is a hot trend, so why shouldn’t lounging outdoors be as comfortable and luxurious as it is indoors?

Furtex has answered the call with their new summer 2018/19 Mulberi outdoor range and it’s their biggest yet. It encompasses three collections of tactile weatherproof floor rugs and a range of cushions that look and feel as if they were designed for interiors, but with the qualities needed to last outdoors.

Furtex’ Lillian Baker says they have taken the design of this collection to the next level because customers want to feel just as comforted by the textures and details in their indoor rooms as in their outdoor rooms.

“All of us want to get outdoors a lot more and use our outdoor spaces; this range makes those spaces a lot more welcoming and cosy.”

“All of us want to get outdoors a lot more and use our outdoor spaces; this range makes those spaces a lot more welcoming and cosy.”

The inspiration for the three different floor rug collections was diverse. The Orakei range has a tufted pile and has a slightly distressed, natural, time-worn feel to it, and “looks and feels more like an indoor floor rug”. This range is made from 100 percent recycled PET derived from plastic bottles.

“It’s really nice to be doing something that enhances our outdoor spaces and considers our environment at the same time,” says Lillian.

The Voyage range has a coastal feel and is made from 100 per cent polypropylene and comes in a much larger 330 x 230 scale option. It’s so durable that it can be hosed down and it won’t fade in the sun either. It’s a great option for those who have large outdoor furniture or want a complete outdoor ‘room’ set up.

The neutral palette range of Voyage means it’s also a popular option for indoors under dining tables, for example, as it can be much more easily cleaned than a fabric floor rug, and the low, flat weave is perfect for under dining chairs.

The last range, called Flax, has a textured, rustic look. The Flax floor rug comes in four shades in a basket weave design; “it also comes in more patterned designs - it can be nice to have a little more detail,” says Lillian.

The Flax range is also made from 100 per cent polypropylene so it can be hosed off easily and is mould and UV resistant.

To enhance the comfort of outdoor spaces, the Ahipara collection of cushions, also made from recycled PET, sits nicely alongside the floor rugs. The range is inspired by the New Zealand bush and beach areas and is far softer and more detailed than you’d expect for outdoor fabrics that are resistant to UV and mould.

“There’s lovely leaf-print designs that have hand embroidery on them, there’s blues and seaside colours inspired by the ocean and textured cushions that are hand-woven in natural shades.”

Large luxe tassels in the corners of some cushions in the range add a bit of fun and look just as home inside the house.

Customers are looking for subtle colour, says Lillian, so that their outdoor cushions are readily interchangeable with their indoor spaces.

“We’re finding people are also looking for a lot more texture, and the subtle hand-detailing makes the cushions a little bit more cosy and far more interesting,” says Lillian.
