Other great prints and patterns that are appropriate for the season include butterfly prints, floral prints, tropical flora and fauna prints and nautical themed prints. These are slightly more subtle in their design and are not so exclusive to the season - for example a nautical print can be perfect for any room with a nautical theme or color scheme. Butterfly and floral prints of various designs and hues are also gorgeous in the home all year round, adding the feeling of something light, airy and reminiscent of summer without being too kitsch or seasonal. Furthermore, there is a great deal of choice here in regards to color and designs on the market to choose from.
The style of the upholstery fabric is also a big decision you are going to have to make. If you want to add a splash of colour to your room design, but still keep the piece neutral to enhance the space, then choosing something with a pattern is worthwhile. Remember that style will play a role in the type of furniture item you wish to cover. If you are covering a modern piece, then choose modern upholstery fabric, but if you are covering a traditional chair which is going to sit in your bedroom, for example, stick to more traditional patterns and styles which will complement the piece moving forward.
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.
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.
