Investing in some new upholstery fabric is the perfect way to update the look of a room in the home - or even the exterior of a home for furniture on a decking area or in a summer house. Choosing new fabrics with different shades, colours and patterns can bring a new lease of life to furniture, and prepare it for the new season. Summer is one of the most bright and uplifting seasons of the year, and your upholstery fabric can be changed to reflect this. Although reupholstering your furniture on a whim of the season is not practical or in the budget for most people, decorating a few key pieces of furniture with these fabrics can add a touch of summer all year round.
Other great prints and patterns that are appropriate for the season include butterfly prints, floral prints, tropical flora and fauna prints and nautical themed prints. These are slightly more subtle in their design and are not so exclusive to the season - for example a nautical print can be perfect for any room with a nautical theme or color scheme. Butterfly and floral prints of various designs and hues are also gorgeous in the home all year round, adding the feeling of something light, airy and reminiscent of summer without being too kitsch or seasonal. Furthermore, there is a great deal of choice here in regards to color and designs on the market to choose from.
In modern times, the Howard Sofa design has changed little although a number of London Sofa manufacturers have sought to create modern takes on the classic design by incorporating atypical elements, exotic fabric choices or adding additional fixtures to overlay an extra layer of personality upon the original design. For design purists, many of these alterations are unwelcome and reduce the appeal of the original although many admirers appreciate the way in which contemporary London sofa designers are paying tribute to the enduring legacy of the cities upholstery heritage.
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.
