Basics of Upholstery Fabrics

Basics of Upholstery Fabrics

 

Jakarta, Indonesia – My mom always fusses on the kind of fabric we will be using on our furniture whether it is as a table runner or a seat cover or an ottoman fabric. When I was young, I always tell her it does not matter. Our guests would not even mind what we put on it anyway.

 

Now that I own an apartment, having my own furniture to look after, I somehow understand my mother and her grave concern to putting together fabrics just as some people would fuss over their own clothes. You have to review your own choice and always prioritize the result.

 

When it comes to upholstery, money doesn’t necessarily buy longevity. A precious silk lampas may be extremely fragile, while a pedestrian nylon is all but indestructible. The important thing is that you are clear with you choice and your ideas. However, if you are still indecisive with your choice, the Peterson Group, supplier of the most distinctive home furnishing resources in the interior design industry, can help you in distinguishing you preferences. Here’s how:

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Choose a pattern

 

Don’t worry, incomprehensibility is the new trend and designers are even making it a point not to use fabrics with similar patterns in all furniture. It is easier to start with the most complex pattern first. This will go on chairs, ottomans, and/or pillows.

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Follow standard rule

 

If you are uncomfortable with your choice of pattern explosion, you can first go with plain ones then slowly get to stripes and checkered. Just remember to follow the color hue. You don’t want to hear complaints on your choice of color

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Prioritize Sofa

 

Choose the body cloth for the sofa. Unless you want a floral or patterned sofa, this should be a solid color or texture. It is a good idea to pick one of the more prominent colors in the first pattern and try to find a body cloth that matches.

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Fabrics to Frame

 

In general, you can put any fabric on any of our frames. However, there are some things to keep in mind about how patterns and frames mix.

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Scale

 

Scale is very important. A tiny ottoman won’t have enough surfaces to showcase a fabric with a large pattern, and a small pin-stripe might look dizzying and distracting on a large sofa.

 

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Style

 

Fabrics and frames both have their own style, and it’s usually a good idea to be consistent. A modern geometric fabric may not be the best choice for a traditional chair with a turned leg and scroll back.
