London has long been an established centre for global design. From the tailors of Saville Row to the upholsterers and interior designers of the West London, the city possesses both a proud heritage and an inspired creative impulse when it comes to the sofa design and manufacture. With new sofa designs and models coming out each season, the tradition of London Sofa manufacturing looks alive and well in the 21st Century.
Colour is another very important consideration. If you are in the process of designing a formal living room which will only be used by adults or when you have guests over, then choosing a lighter shade will work well in the space as the risk of the item having spills and dirt is reduced. In the event you are choosing the fabric for your sofas in the family room and you have children, pets and a house filled with guests at all times, then choosing something darker which will mask any stains and spills is going to be more beneficial to you in the long run and reduce the need of having to change the fabric because someone spilled a glass of red wine on the sofa and now you can't get rid of the stain.
One of the leading sofa styles developed in London during this period was the Howard Sofa which departed from the rigid, formal Chesterfields of the time by using light modern fabrics and incorporating contemporary features to create a look that was immediately more comfortable, open and casual. Instantly popular with the British public from its inception, the Howard Sofa remains the UK's best-selling luxury sofa design and is widely used in a range of informal settings such as home living rooms and conservatories.
Style. First and foremost, you want to try to match the style of your furniture with the style of the upholstery fabric. For example, if you are re-upholstering an antique piece, it would look very out-of-sorts to cover it in polka-dot fabric. In addition, some fabric styles create a casual appearance while others are more formal. Ultimately, how do you want your room to be perceived? How do you want your own style reflected by your furniture? Many patterns may make an attractive addition to your room, but you should always take some time to try to see the big picture and choose a style that fits the furniture, the room, and your personality.
