Home textile buying guide

Fabrics constitute an important part of home decoration, from sofas and chairs to headboards and sheets, to cushions, blankets, and tablecloths. We have thoroughly studied home furnishing fabrics, their uses, and styling and maintenance techniques.

Next time you are looking for luxurious fabrics, please visit a home furnishing fabric store. If you avoid the home dec department of the local fabric store because of the memory of the stiff, rubber-backed monsters of the past, then take a risk-you will get a pleasant surprise. We will show you some treasures you can discover when visiting the home decoration department and how to use these delicious decoration materials in your clothing.

Of course, these fabrics are very suitable for decorating everything-walls, cornices, chairs, stereo speakers and lawn furniture. But there are more: woven fibers that look like baskets; embroidered silks in the Renaissance style; velvets as heavy as carpets; transparent tulle window coverings as light as spider webs; and fabrics that block light and wind.

Although there are no hard and fast rules on which fabrics to use, certain characteristics of textiles make them more suitable for various fields. Upholstery in heavily used areas such as dining chairs, sofas and headboards requires heavier and thicker fabrics to withstand daily use, accidental spills and wear. Fine fabrics such as silk can be used on sofas, but they are more suitable for fabrics that are not often used. Medium-weight and transparent fabrics are more suitable for curtains and other decorations such as curtains or cushions. In addition, please keep in mind the climatic conditions such as humidity. Households with children and/or pets need durable and easy-to-clean upholstery and curtain fabrics.
