Types of upholstery fabric and their uses - Yorkshire Fabric Shop

Yorkshire Fabric Shop

When choosing an upholstery fabric for a piece of furniture, it is important to take into account where the furniture is to be used and how much wear and tear might be expected. Yorkshire Fabric Shop have provided some information on the types of upholstery fabrics and what they should be used for. 

First and foremost, they suggest that any upholstery fabric should fit the ambience of the room where it is to be used. A highly patterned and colourful furnishing fabric might look stylish and modern but it may detract from a room which is intended as a peaceful haven. 

It is also important to consider the type of furniture to be reupholstered. The choice of upholstery fabric should fit the style of the piece to be reupholstered. However, it is always worth considering that a modern furnishing fabric can add a new twist to an antique piece of furniture, so it is always possible to think outside the box when it comes to your choice of upholstery fabric. 

The amount of wear you anticipate your piece of furniture will have may also impact your choice of upholstery fabric as will the cost of the fabric. Leather furnishing fabrics are expensive but very hard wearing whilst linen is a good choice of upholstery fabric for a sofa. Cotton upholstery fabrics have always been popular as cotton is available in a huge range of colours and styles.  Cotton is also recognised to be a durable furnishing fabric. Velvet and chenille furnishing fabrics are also very much on trend and can add a touch of luxury to any piece of furniture. 

Whatever type of upholstery fabric you choose, if durability is a factor, you will need to ensure that the fabric has a high thread count as this will guarantee that your upholstery fabric will stand the test of time and the rigours of family life. Yorkshire Fabric Shop also stocks a comprehensive range of curtain fabrics to help you complete your look.
