Can I Place My E9lifeStyle™ Furniture Outdoors? 
E9lifeStyle™ manufactures both indoor and outdoor furniture. Our indoor furniture is manufactured with natural materials and is generally for indoor use only and we do not recommend putting this furniture outside. Our outdoor furniture however is made 100% of synthetic wicker, aluminium framework, and teakwood. All our outdoor furniture is manufactured to the highest standards with a 2-year manufacturer's warranty against defects and fading.

I am using water repellent fabrics for my cushions. Why should I still use reticulated foam?
Even water repellent fabrics cannot prevent moisture and humidity from penetrating the fabrics after a certain period of time. When moisture builds up inside the conventional indoor-use foam, it will still eventually get wet, heavy and form a foul odour.

How long do I have to wait before my cushions dry after sitting out in the rain?
Reticulated foam will dry almost immediately. However, if it is covered with a non-woven polyester fibre with lining, it might take up to 12 hours to dry completely depending on the climate conditions and the thickness of the cushion. One way to drain the water quickly is to tip the cushion on its' zipper end and allow the water to filter down and drain thoroughly. This will shorten the time required to dry out your cushions.
