Selecting the best quality fabric and ensuring it is right for your furniture piece will give you peace of mind for years to come, as is the opposite when selecting fabrics that are inferior in quality.
A favourite passion of mine is collecting aged pieces of furniture inherited from family or friends. Sprucing up the piece with interesting fabric and sanding down the dull varnish. There are many styles, patterns and colours of fabric that will suite even the most discerning buyer. Upholstery fabric can create the most dramatic atmosphere to a living space.
More Designers and Decorators are supplying fabrics for their interior design projects that are “ Fiber-guard protected” which ensures low maintenance and easy to clean fabrics. Stains can be removed by using water, it is advisable to attend to the spill immediately. Stubborn stains may require a bit of household soap. Fiber-guard fabrics are pet friendly and designed to meet the demands of everyday life, for both residential and professional use. Fiber-guard upholstery fabrics may initially be more costly than other ordinary upholstery fabrics, but in the long term, this will ensure your peace of mind.
