Interior designer to redesign lofts with Sunbrella Fabrics

One loft. One designer. A million new ideas. That’s the premise of a new web-based, video home makeover series from Sunbrella fabrics and Lonny Magazine, created to inspire consumers with elegant and practical design solutions that are relatable for any home. Set in Atlanta, the series – “Perspective: Atlanta” – follows interior designer Alex Gaston as he decorates an urban loft using Sunbrella fabrics and transforms it from a jumble of architectural features into a cohesive space.

Gaston, who is design director for Mark Cunningham, Inc. in New York, will use Sunbrella fabric for any and all applications possible, from furniture to drapery, rugs to wall coverings – for every room in the loft. Other important players in the project are Celina Wright, a junior designer at Mark Cunningham, Inc., Sunbrella Design and Creative Director Gina Wicker and a team of editors at Lonny Magazine who check in and review the design progress throughout the makeover. 

“People all over the world know Sunbrella fabrics for outdoor living – awnings, boats, outdoor furniture. But many people are just discovering our vast availability as an indoor fabric option through leading furniture manufacturers and fabric by the yard,” Wicker said. “Perspective: Atlanta will grow people’s understanding of Sunbrella fabric as an interior upholstery option for all kinds of applications, including sofas and chairs, ottomans, wall coverings, draperies and more.”

With views of the city skyline and local parks, the Perspective: Atlanta loft is located in a mixed-use residential area with immediate access to shopping and dining. The loft has an abundance of windows that bring in natural light and an open floor plan that includes 10- and 20-foot ceilings and exposed brick walls. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the loft represents urban Atlanta living at its best with spacious rooms and fabulous views.

“One of my mottos in design is to never settle, and this project allows me to demonstrate that philosophy to viewers and help them gain a better understanding of the décor process, which includes how Sunbrella fabrics play a role in the overall design direction of the loft,” Gaston said. “The beautiful textures and colors of Sunbrella fabrics allow me to design for the integrity of all the spaces I create, and this loft will be a fabulous example.” 

The entire project is being filmed – from planning to shopping, and from fabrication to installation – to show how Gaston pulls the space design together using Sunbrella upholstery fabrics. Gaston’s design scheme features furniture from a variety of Sunbrella partners and decorative accessories and art from online sources and stores across Atlanta. The project focuses on furnishings available at the retail level and to the trade, educating consumers on furniture selection, fabrics and how to work with an interior designer to have access to trade sources.
