I have rec'd great advice on recovering options. Denim is well liked. So is a Solarium outdoor fabric. Scotch-guarding is considered essential so the fabric, I am told, should be able to hold up to that process. I will try and link source sites up to these as I find them. I still need something with a little brown to ground it but then pop with the turquoise, yellow, royal blue type of colors. The search goes one!
House of Fabric is one source and they have sales! http://www.housefabric.com/Solarium-Outdoor-Fabric-C472.aspx
Joann Fabric is another source http://www.joann.com/outdoor-fabric-solarium-coltrane-nutmeg/12743050.html?
Locally, fabric stores are not as numerous as they once were and especially looking for upholstery or outdoor fabrics at reasonable prices.
