Upholstery Fabrics and Home Decor by CM Textiles

Upholstery Fabrics and Home Decor

All furniture, despite being durably constructed, is subject to the wear and tear of everyday use. This is especially true for often used pieces like sofas, chairs, and love seats, which are utilized for everything from morning coffee and the newspaper to sick days watching The Price is Right to Super Bowl parties and evening viewings of Stranger Things. Rather than throw out a comfortable and beloved piece of furniture when its surface becomes torn, worn, or frayed, why not look into upholstery, with fabrics that are the best for your home decor needs?

Function Plays Its Role

Determining what upholstery fabric you will use in your home decor largely depends on its function in your house.

For example, if you are going to reupholster a couch that sees everyday use as the centerpiece of your living room, you may want to go with a heavy-weight fabric that can take heavy-duty use. In this regard, wovens, denim, or twill may work best.

If you wish to reupholster a chair that sits in the corner of your front room and is more a showpiece than one that sees practical use, then perhaps a lighter-weight fabric is in order. In this regard, perhaps a thin polyester or chenille may be in order.

In either case, C&M Textiles has the expertise to recommend the perfect fabric for any upholstery project in your home.

Choosing the Right Design in Upholstery Fabrics to Match your Home Decor

Function is not the only consideration when deciding on upholstery fabric for your home decor project. Obviously, color, pattern, and design will have to match your personal aesthetic and vision for the look of your home.

With literally hundreds of differently colored and patterned fabrics to choose from, C&M Textiles is well placed to offer its clients a literal rainbow of options for upholstery and home decor. Still, there are some factors in design you should consider:

  • If you have children and the piece you wish to reupholster is used on a frequent basis, perhaps a darker, matte color is in order. This will hide potential stains from spilled drinks and everyday wear and tear.
  • If the piece you wish to reupholster doesn’t see much use, you can feel free to use lighter-colored fabrics or ones that fit your aesthetic vision.
