Central to the appeal of this London sofa style is the emphasis placed on human comfort achieved through significant padding and stuffing around the frame or body of the sofa design. In many cases, traditional materials such as feather and down are used with a protective foam wrapping to ensure that the sofa maintains its shape with minimal maintenance required. As with many sofas designed in London during this period, innovative new stitching and stuffing techniques were required to achieve this result, which have since become standard practice within the upholstery profession.
The first type of summery pattern that can be great to invest in is something with a print that is reminiscent of the summer season. This can include ice cream prints, checker board patterns with beach balls and sand castles, or patterns that features summer fruit such as slices of watermelon and strawberries. This is also a great way to add some fun to your upholstery, as all of these patterns are vibrant, interesting and out of the ordinary. As mentioned above, these are often a great choice for furniture in a summer house or for patio furniture that you only get out during warmer times of the year.
Unfortunately if you do have pets that are allowed on the furniture, then velvet is definitely not the right choice for you. In addition to this, you will find this upholstery fabric will be slightly more expensive than some of the other fabrics available. So you will want to take price and compare it to final design to see if it is worth paying more for this fabric in the long run. The final disadvantage that you need to know about if you are looking at velvet for your upholstery fabric is that it can be fragile, depending on the weave and the material used to make the velvet.
Always pay very close attention to the durability of the fabric. Remember a furniture item is going to be used daily, it is going to be put through its paces so buying a poor quality or not too durable material is only going to result in you having to have the item recovered in the near future. If you spend the money on a durable upholstery fabric, then it can last for years without the need of replacement, which saves you money and time in the long run.
