Velvet is one of the leading choices when it comes to upholstery fabric because it oozes luxury. There is something very special about this fabric from how it looks to how it feels, It is smooth, comfortable and soft which can make your furniture feel welcoming, enjoyable and exceptionally relaxing moving forward.
In actual fact, London's upholsterers share a history with the tailors of Saville Row, whose technical expertise and guiding principles of discreet detail and fit were readily adopted by London Sofa designers in the 18th and 19th Century. Placing emphasis on attention to detail, upholsterers and tailors alike developed new techniques of sewing and stitching to accentuate the human form whether as a bespoke suit or a handcrafted sofa design.
Other Special Considerations. Finally, you should think about other aspects of the room and your needs before deciding on an upholstery fabric. If your room gets a lot of sunlight, you probably want a fade-resistant fabric. In humid or moisture-prone rooms, a mildew-resistant fabric is a great choice. Upholstery fabrics that are made with certain microfibers are lint free and reduce allergens. By considering all your needs and wants, you'll be able to refine your search for upholstery fabric and choose the best fit for your home.
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.
