It's a good idea to check with the upholstery fabric supplier to identify if the material they supply is fade resistant. Over time sun is guaranteed to shine into the space, catching the fabric and we all know how damaging the sun rays can be. There is nothing worse than one side of the furniture item losing its colour, while the other side stays brilliant and bright. Fade resistance can be a major benefit and definitely something that should be taken into consideration.
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.
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.
When it comes to curtain and upholstery fabrics you often find that polyester is included. Polyester is a very strong and resistant material which is often used as a blend, so you will find it blended with the wood or blended with the cotton. A cotton and polyester blend provides you with all the benefits you find with cotton, but the polyester helps to reduce the wrinkling and gives the material even more strength. Again, polyester is very easy to maintain which makes it a very popular choice when it comes to room design and finishing touches.
