When furnishing your home, one of the most significant investments you'll make is in upholstery. I always recommend opting for a sofa that withstands the test of time and can be restyled for years to come. A well-made sofa with the right fabric can endure for 10-15 years with a wise selection.
First, let's delve into style considerations. There are numerous aspects to contemplate. What shape appeals to you? Curved or straight lines? Are you inclined towards clean lines or prefer something more ornate? When it comes to arms, do you prefer them narrow or wide? And what about legs – chunky or slim?
Moving on to function, think about the sofa's usage frequency. Will it be used often? Do you have pets or small children? It's crucial to assess these factors when choosing the appropriate fabric. Always scrutinize the fabric content, ensuring it aligns with your lifestyle. Furnishing your home is an investment that warrants careful consideration and intention.
Familiarize yourself with your options. Performance fabrics like Crypton or Sunbrella offer distinct advantages. Crypton, for instance, boasts stain and odor resistance, ease of cleaning, antimicrobial properties, and durability, making it ideal for households with children and pets. Sunbrella, on the other hand, is UV-resistant and fade-proof, with easy cleaning capabilities. Leather is another durable choice, offering easy cleanup and natural resistance to scratches. Other options include upholstery weight fabric blends, linens, and velvet, each with its unique characteristics to suit different needs.
Lastly, assess the size and scale of your room. Each piece's size and scale should harmonize with the overall design scheme.
