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.
On the other hand, in a room frequented by children or pets, white and other delicate colours are not a great idea. Some things you can consider when choosing upholstery fabric is mood and how colour temperature impacts the mood of that room. Warm and cool colours create different atmospheres. Also, try to avoid trendy colours, especially if you're not sure how you'll feel about that colour when it's not so trendy anymore.
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.
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.
