London has long been an established centre for global design. From the tailors of Saville Row to the upholsterers and interior designers of the West London, the city possesses both a proud heritage and an inspired creative impulse when it comes to the sofa design and manufacture. With new sofa designs and models coming out each season, the tradition of London Sofa manufacturing looks alive and well in the 21st Century.
Durability. This might not be an obvious consideration, but you should always think about who will be using the room. A delicate, soft fabric is fine for a formal living room, but you wouldn't want to decorate a children's playroom with it. Typically, woven patterns are more durable than printed ones, and higher thread counts also provide a longer lifespan. Though these upholstery fabrics may be more expensive, their durability makes up for the cost.
Choosing the perfect upholstery fabric can be a daunting process. There are so many different fabrics on the market and you need to choose between cotton, silk, velvet and more to identify the one you feel is going to work with your design, stand out and complete your design to perfection.
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.
