Design Den - Fall 2013

Ensure your outdoor furniture lasts a life time with Couverture Covers. Blocking 95% of moisture, UV rays and pollutants, these one-of-a-kind protectors are constructed from breathable, water-resistant and machine washable fabric. Available in eight fade-resistant colours, the handmade-to-order covers guarantee a perfectly snug fit is always achieved. With a constantly updated library, most patterns are on file, but for those in select markets a Couverture Concierge can be dispatched to personally measure each piece of furniture for custom covers.www.CouvertureDeBois.com

Producing exceptional fabrics for the design trade since 1980, Nomi Franklin combines pattern and colour with inspiration derived from various cultures, historical eras and the natural world. With over 100 different designs of indoor and outdoor fabrics, which are UV/ fade-resistant, anti-microbial and mildew-resistant, there is a look and colourway for every taste.www.nomiinc.com
Change the way you grill with a soapstone griddle. Known for its ability to retain and radiate heat, soapstone provides an even, consistent temperature, making it ideal for grilling. A nonporous material, it is also resistant to bacteria, stains and rust. With raised ridges allowing fat and juices to flow away, food is not only healthier but your meat will have the sign-of-a-good chef grill marks.www.sparqusa.com
Unveiling their latest addition to the BLANCO SILGRANIT series of sinks, the SILGRANIT II features HYGIENIC+PLUS™ a patented formula that acts as a shield against dirt and bacteria.

Available in over 20 shapes and eight on-trend colours, the rock-hard surface also resists scratches, stains and heat to offer endless kitchen possibilities.www.blancoamerica.com
