    I didn’t know that Tommy Bahama is an ideal choice for cushions, or that it is stain and soil resistant. Definitely seems like this would be a good investment if you have active children or if you needed some more decorations outside. I’d be interested in knowing what the texture feels like. This is something I’m probably going to have to look into. Thanks for these recommendations!
