Cabana Coast: Sunbrella® Fabric Poufs

Few outdoor living trends are more versatile than these fabric poufs. They may look ordinary at first, but they are anything but. You can use them as a coffee table, foot rest, side table, or even additional seating, and they are custom made with whatever fabric choice you desire. The cushions themselves were created with outdoor spaces in mind, and they can handle all the dirt, water, and sun you throw their way.Cabana Coast: Sunbrella® Fabric Poufs
