Five Trends In Upholstery Fabric

Are you thinking of reupholstering your furniture? Upholstery fabric can make or break a reupholstering project. The right fabric can really make your furniture look beautiful and help it stand out in your home. It's important to shop around for the right fabric because there are so many different types available. Here are five trends in upholstery fabric that you'll want to know about before you begin your reupholstering project.

1. Leather 

Leather is a popular fabric for reupholstering because it's durable and stylish. It can be dyed in any color you want and can be used on any type of furniture. If you have old leather furniture that needs cleaning or repairs, upholstery fabric may be the best option for fixing it.

2. Suede 

Suede is another popular option because it's easy to clean and looks great in any room in your home. There are even some more modern designs that feature suede combined with other materials like velvet or cotton to create unique patterns and textures on your furniture pieces. Reupholstering with suede can give your old pieces new life while still keeping their original design intact.

3. Reproduction Fabrics

With all the creativity that goes into designing new upholstery fabrics, it's no surprise that there are many reproduction fabrics available today. The trend has been growing over the last few years as more companies sell their vintage fabrics online. Not only does this give customers access to classic designs but it also allows them to own something unique that was previously only available through antique shops or interior designers. These fabrics come in all shapes, sizes, colours and patterns making them perfect for any project from sofas to chairs to curtains

4. Natural Fibres

Natural fibres like linen and cotton are making a comeback on furniture because they're soft and comfortable but also durable enough for long-term use in homes with pets or children who may spill things on them at some point during their lifetime.

5. Velvet

Velvet is a luxurious fabric available for reupholstering furniture. It's also one of the most expensive since it requires extra care during processing and finishing due to its high pile thickness. Velvet is soft but durable and can be used on sofas, chairs or ottomans without worrying about wear and tear.

Reupholstering your furniture is a great way to change the look of your home without breaking the bank. It can also be a great way to refresh old furniture that you love but no longer fits with your decor. For more information on upholstery fabric, contact a local professional.
