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.
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.
Velvet tends to hold onto colour very well, making all colours exceptionally rich. Whether you have chosen a solid colour or a pattern design, yo will notice your colours will be bold, noticeable and rich when you choose velvet as your upholstery fabric. It is also very thick and dense, which is what makes it so warm, comfortable and welcoming.
You probably never knew there was a variety of velvets to choose from. Not all velvets are the same. There is linen velvet, which is one of the more popular varieties and is lighter, cooler and provides texture. There is silk velvet which is very indulgent, the printed velvet gives you some depth and design, a perfect finish to your room while crushed can give you a different design to add texture and style to your room finish.
