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.
Tie backs curtain, fabric curtain tiebacks, tassel fringe, and trim tassels come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and in an extensive band of colors. The fabric also varies from medium-level to designer fabric, depending upon customer and market needs. Take the Venetian tassels and tie-backs, for instance, which provide an archetypical class for floor-to-ceiling pooled silk drapes, as well as plain tassels that can make striped curtains look extremely pretty. Trims are just the thing used to enhance upholstery including (but definitely not limited to) draperies and pillows. You can also include slipcovers and ottomans in this list.
One of the leading sofa styles developed in London during this period was the Howard Sofa which departed from the rigid, formal Chesterfields of the time by using light modern fabrics and incorporating contemporary features to create a look that was immediately more comfortable, open and casual. Instantly popular with the British public from its inception, the Howard Sofa remains the UK's best-selling luxury sofa design and is widely used in a range of informal settings such as home living rooms and conservatories.
You will find when you start looking around online that the curtain and upholstery fabrics offered come in a wide selection, which can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unsure which is the right choice for you moving forward. Of course if you are going to spend money now and buy a top quality fabric, you expect it to last. But it is also worthwhile knowing what makes each of the fabrics so special and which will be the most durable and stylish choice based on your particular project.
