How To Choose the Right Upholstery Fabric

UPHOLSTERY COTTON FABRIC

Durable, easy to clean.

This natural fiber provides good resistance to wear, fading and pilling, but is less resistant to soiling and wrinkling.

UPHOLSTERY COTTON BLEND FABRIC

Sturdy, family-friendly

For everyday use, it’s a good idea to apply a stain-resistant finish.

UPHOLSTERY LEATHER FABRIC

Very forgiving, easy to clean

This tough material comes in many colors and finishes and develops more character and softness with age.

UPHOLSTERY LINEN FABRIC

Stays clean, absorbs moisture

This fabric is best suited for formal living rooms or adult areas because it soils and wrinkles easily. While it won't withstand heavy wear, linen does resist pilling and fading.

UPHOLSTERY WOOL FABRIC

Water repellent, durable

Wool and wool blends offer good resistance to pilling, fading, wrinkling, and soil. Generally, wool is blended with a synthetic fiber to make it easier to clean. Blends can be spot-cleaned when necessary. Wool is warm in the summer and cool in the winter.

UPHOLSTERY VINYL FABRIC

Easy to care for, less expensive than leather

Vinyl is a practical choice for busy family rooms and children’s furniture.
