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.
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.
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.
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.
