Out house: Extex alfresco fabrics


If lazy days on the lawn mean the living-room cushions are starting to migrate outdoors, take care – these aren’t designed for a life en plein air. Stock up instead on cushions covered in Extex’s latest outdoor performance fabrics. Easy options, including the embossed chenille (pictured), are water-repellent and machine-washable. Enzo fabric, £149 per linear metre.
