Of course there are downsides and when choosing which fabric is the right match for your design and lifestyle, it is important you know and understand both sides of the coin. Cotton tends to wrinkle, which can be rather frustrating, especially when using the material for furniture. It also tends to shrink, which means while cleaning is easy, you need to take care.
It's a good idea to check with the upholstery fabric supplier to identify if the material they supply is fade resistant. Over time sun is guaranteed to shine into the space, catching the fabric and we all know how damaging the sun rays can be. There is nothing worse than one side of the furniture item losing its colour, while the other side stays brilliant and bright. Fade resistance can be a major benefit and definitely something that should be taken into consideration.
Central to the appeal of this London sofa style is the emphasis placed on human comfort achieved through significant padding and stuffing around the frame or body of the sofa design. In many cases, traditional materials such as feather and down are used with a protective foam wrapping to ensure that the sofa maintains its shape with minimal maintenance required. As with many sofas designed in London during this period, innovative new stitching and stuffing techniques were required to achieve this result, which have since become standard practice within the upholstery profession.
Always pay very close attention to the durability of the fabric. Remember a furniture item is going to be used daily, it is going to be put through its paces so buying a poor quality or not too durable material is only going to result in you having to have the item recovered in the near future. If you spend the money on a durable upholstery fabric, then it can last for years without the need of replacement, which saves you money and time in the long run.
