The first thing you are going to want to do when looking at upholstery fabrics is to know what the piece of furniture is going to be used for and who is going to use it. If you live in a family household with younger children and pets, then chances are they are going to use the piece of furniture, which means you're going to want to focus on the durability of the upholstery fabric and maybe choose a darker colour, which isn't going to stain easily.
Other Special Considerations. Finally, you should think about other aspects of the room and your needs before deciding on an upholstery fabric. If your room gets a lot of sunlight, you probably want a fade-resistant fabric. In humid or moisture-prone rooms, a mildew-resistant fabric is a great choice. Upholstery fabrics that are made with certain microfibers are lint free and reduce allergens. By considering all your needs and wants, you'll be able to refine your search for upholstery fabric and choose the best fit for your home.
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.
Always pay very close attention to the durability of the fabric. Remember a furniture item is going to be used daily, it is going to be put through its paces so buying a poor quality or not too durable material is only going to result in you having to have the item recovered in the near future. If you spend the money on a durable upholstery fabric, then it can last for years without the need of replacement, which saves you money and time in the long run.
