One of the most important things when buying armchairs are the fabrics and the upholstery. Usually, these details are they key for the syle, functionality and durability of the furniture. We will show you below some advice to choose what is best for you.
First thing to take into account is the use that will be made of the armchair. If there are children at home and the armchair is in the living room, then you must choose a fabric that stands up to any overflow and is easy to clean. On the other hand, if the armchair is in your bedroom or in a place with few children, you can use finer fabrics.
How to evaluate a fabric? Follow your instincts. If it is not pleasant to the touch there is a failure. The woof must be compact, and the obverse must be on a par with the back. It is important to pay attention to the borders too. If they are very frayed, the fabric is sure to be defective.
Furnitures with dark wood structure combine very well with light colored fabrics. In small places, the most recommendable is to use neutral colors like those of stone or concrete.
Finally, it is important to know that the style armchairs are usually more complicated to upholster than the modern ones because of their borders and elastics that deteriorates the upholstery over time.
