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.
Cotton is a very popular material, though when it comes to curtain and upholstery design, there are some factors to take into consideration regarding this particular fabric. Cotton is breathable and is very high quality. It is able to withstand heat, which makes it ideal for window coverings. Another reason to consider cotton is that it is easy to maintain and clean.
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.
Next you will find that velvet is light and can really add volume to your room design. When you choose fabrics, you want to focus on playing with textures. Having everything the same texture will leave you with a boring room design, but working with texture and colour will ensure your room makes the impact you are looking to achieve.
