Andrea Lynn

Andrea's expertise in the fabric industry spans the past 25 years. Her creativity and use of fabric movement in her  designs have won her recognition among her colleagues and peers. Attention to detail is her strength and it is evident in every new shade sail environment we create.

It all began in 2004. Bob was contracted to do an extensive indoor/outdoor remodel of this Murrieta home. The sails came last…. and once complete, we fell in love with the product. We were so impressed we brought them home with us to Northern California. The rest is photo gallery history!!
