Hello!

People often inquire what textile colors and textures to choose for their home. Most of them are even unaware that textiles play a key role in creating a unique character and atmosphere of the interior.

Our site targets those who specialize in interior design or those who are just new in this interesting field!

Interior fabrics have been widely used in decorating modern homes and offices. Interior textile décor includes furniture cases, throw pillows and blankets, furniture upholstery fabrics, textile home decor etc. Earlier when people needed to reupholster a chair or sofa they would throw a brown plaid with some pattern on it. Today reupholstering furniture is the best solution to this problem, plus there is a great selection of beautiful sofa fabrics you can choose from.

The most common way to use textiles in the interior is to decorate the windows with fabrics, the colorful curtains. Without curtains it is impossible to create a complete look of your home. Using curtains in creating the interior a designer can hide such drawbacks as irregularities of the walls or the wrong placement of the windows, etc.

So how to choose the right fabric? Of course, you can peruse the books on materials science to learn about the properties of fabrics. But very few people do this. Besides, even the best book with the most vivid pictures won’t let you feel the texture of the particular fabric. I would like to tell you about the easiest way to quickly choose among the huge selection of fabrics available for sale! Visit the store that specializes in selling interior fabrics or order fabric samples online, preferably at the best online fabric shops.

Of course, before you hit the stores to purchase exclusive fabric, make sure you learn about the latest fabric trends.

Consider shopping at the best and most reputable stores. Come up to the shelves with different fabric and feel the samples. Read the name of the fabric you like and pay attention to the fiber content, try to remember how it looks like and how it feels like. Women tend to remember their feeling very well, as it is not a secret that women love with their skin (only silly people think that women love with their ears)…

Another way to learn about the properties of fabrics is to check out boutiques offering high quality cushioned furniture. There you can pay attention to fiber content used in the furniture. As a rule, professional sale assistants will give you valuable pieces of advice on how to choose the right fabric.

Choosing the Suited Fabric it is necessary to consider the following: fabric must be abrasion resistant, dense, waterproof and should not fade under sun light. It should be easy to clean such fabric using a brush or a sponge. The most commonly used fabrics for cushioned furniture are: tapestry, jacquard, nubuck, leather, flock, chenille, as well as micro velvet. Before you actually choose the fabric you should think where furniture will be placed and how often it will be used so you could make a sound choice.

We also recommend choosing the fabrics that combine the best properties of both natural and synthetic fibers. Such fabric is ideal for any interior style as it is elastic, crush-resistant and hypoallergenic. Items made of these fabrics will serve you longer.

Finally, I would like to note that the problem of choosing the right fabric is concerned with the choice but not the search of it. Of course, it is not easy as you have to take into account its structure, color, pattern, the size of the room, light, décor, the shape and the size of the pieces of furniture, the colors of other fabrics in the room. And we developed this site to help you make this difficult choice. Good Luck!
