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.
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.
Colour. In a sense, your options are limitless. Today's upholstery fabrics are available in virtually any colour, which is important because colour is typically the first consideration designers make when choosing upholstery fabric. Still, aside from how it fits with the colour of surrounding pieces, window coverings, and wall paint, the colour of your upholstery fabric can have a greater impact on the feel of a room. For example, in a smaller room less imposing colour can actually create the experience of space.
It's a good idea to check with the upholstery fabric supplier to identify if the material they supply is fade resistant. Over time sun is guaranteed to shine into the space, catching the fabric and we all know how damaging the sun rays can be. There is nothing worse than one side of the furniture item losing its colour, while the other side stays brilliant and bright. Fade resistance can be a major benefit and definitely something that should be taken into consideration.
