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.
Investing in some new upholstery fabric is the perfect way to update the look of a room in the home - or even the exterior of a home for furniture on a decking area or in a summer house. Choosing new fabrics with different shades, colours and patterns can bring a new lease of life to furniture, and prepare it for the new season. Summer is one of the most bright and uplifting seasons of the year, and your upholstery fabric can be changed to reflect this. Although reupholstering your furniture on a whim of the season is not practical or in the budget for most people, decorating a few key pieces of furniture with these fabrics can add a touch of summer all year round.
Velvet dates back to the eighth century and is considered very luxurious and posh. For those looking to make a dramatic statement in their room design and come up with a design that screams luxury and comfort, then this fabric may be the best upholstery fabric for you to choose from.
In modern times, the Howard Sofa design has changed little although a number of London Sofa manufacturers have sought to create modern takes on the classic design by incorporating atypical elements, exotic fabric choices or adding additional fixtures to overlay an extra layer of personality upon the original design. For design purists, many of these alterations are unwelcome and reduce the appeal of the original although many admirers appreciate the way in which contemporary London sofa designers are paying tribute to the enduring legacy of the cities upholstery heritage.
