When looking for a new sofa or sectional sofa, one of the most important features to look for is the upholstery material. Your new sofa may look great in the living room, but if the fabric or material doesn't stand up to everyday wear and tear, you may regret buying it a few months later. Before you buy this must-have living room centerpiece, here's everything you need to know about common upholstery materials so you can find the best fabric for your sofa!
Without upholstery, your furniture is just a frame. The stuffing, padding, springs, foam, and cushions that make up the rest of the furniture are upholstery. Much of the durability, comfort, and longevity of your furniture starts with your choice of upholstery fabrics. While you do have the opportunity to re-upholster old, damaged, or worn furniture, costs can add up, so choosing the right fabric the first time is critical.
With many fabrics, weaves, colors, and textures to choose from, how will you choose a fabric for your new sofa? If shopping online is more your style, you can order fabric samples to compare fabrics and see how they match your existing decor. No matter how you look at things, we are confident that you will find materials and sofas for all your needs!
