Pure Fabrication

The fabric of your life shouldn’t be a stained and faded poly-blend. And that’s doubly true if it’s also the fabric of your favorite lanai chaise, where you read the morning paper and wind down with a sunset cocktail.

But when your outdoor furniture has to stand up to a rainy winter and lots of entertaining, standard vinyl seat cushions can leave you flat.

Kahala’s Patti Wager can help bring the comfort of your indoor furniture to your lanai. Wager designs and makes custom cushions and covers that stand up to even the most extreme wear and tear. Call her to customize cushions of any size, shape, www.leichic.comcolor or pattern – she’ll even help find beautiful vintage aloha prints in durable all-weather weaves.  

Wager got her start during her days as a flight attendant, where she would sew pillows to stay awake on long international flights. But she soon left that behind for a cushy career bringing first-class comfort to all kinds of seating. 

With expertise gleaned from helping clients such as Mariposa at Neiman Marcus and Mai Tai Bar -- where the upholstery stands up to constant sitting and spills --Wager can solve any sunproofing, waterproofing and upgrading issues. She can also recommend the best materials for pool chairs or beachfront www.leichic.comlanais, as well as the right type of foam for different cushions.

And that old lanai chaise? Now it’s the best seat in the house.
