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.
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.
Next you will find that velvet is light and can really add volume to your room design. When you choose fabrics, you want to focus on playing with textures. Having everything the same texture will leave you with a boring room design, but working with texture and colour will ensure your room makes the impact you are looking to achieve.
Next is silk. When looking at silk for curtain and upholstery fabrics then you are looking at sheer luxury. Silk oozes luxury and comfort and is an absorbent fabric which is used for garments, curtains and more. It is important to note that while silk may give you a luxurious finish, it is not ideal if you want darker and thicker curtains to block out the sun. Further, you will note that this material usually needs to be dry cleaned.
