Sofa upholstery fabrics come in a variety of looks and textures. Whether you're upholstering your own sofa or buying something already made, it's a good idea to know about the various sofa upholstery fabric types.
Some fabrics are associated with specific sofa shapes, such as faux leather or genuine leather upholstery, while others, such as linen or cotton, are often found in looser, more relaxed sofa styles. Luxurious fabrics such as velvet give the space an upscale vibe and are suitable for most sofa shapes.
If you prefer to use natural fabrics rather than synthetic fabrics in your home, then cotton or linen fabrics will be your best option. Compared to some synthetic materials, these materials have the advantage of being extremely durable, while being more sustainable and healthier for your home.
Linen fabric's natural fibers are stain-resistant and ideal for upholstery projects as they are tough yet soft. They're also machine washable and are great for upholstering loose coverings on sofas in high-traffic rooms or areas with pet hair and children.
Synthetic materials such as polyester fabrics have fairly long abrasion resistance, depending on the quality of the fabric, but they usually don't sit as comfortably on the skin as natural fabrics. They are usually less expensive but they usually don't last as long as linen fabrics.
Acrylic fabrics tend to have good color fastness, so they won't leave marks on cushions or clothing. But it can pill up quickly and look shabby. Semi-synthetic fabrics offer the best of both worlds but check the percentages of their ingredients.
