Velvet dates back to the eighth century and is considered very luxurious and posh. For those looking to make a dramatic statement in their room design and come up with a design that screams luxury and comfort, then this fabric may be the best upholstery fabric for you to choose from.
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.
The first thing you are going to want to do when looking at upholstery fabrics is to know what the piece of furniture is going to be used for and who is going to use it. If you live in a family household with younger children and pets, then chances are they are going to use the piece of furniture, which means you're going to want to focus on the durability of the upholstery fabric and maybe choose a darker colour, which isn't going to stain easily.
Start with wool. Wool has been used around the world for years. It is used for clothing and upholstery fabrics, though it is very important you understand this product and what it means to use it as part of your room design. Wool doesn't mean you are choosing a woolly jumper, it is a very resistant and absorbent material, but at the same time it can cause headaches when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. Wool often shrinks and can change shape easily, which means cleaning needs to be done with care following the strict instructions from the manufacturer.
