Next is silk. When looking at silk for curtain and upholstery fabrics then you are looking at sheer luxury. Silk oozes luxury and comfort and is an absorbent fabric which is used for garments, curtains and more. It is important to note that while silk may give you a luxurious finish, it is not ideal if you want darker and thicker curtains to block out the sun. Further, you will note that this material usually needs to be dry cleaned.
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.
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.
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.
