The upholstery in a home is similar to a front desk clerk’s relation to a business — it’s the first thing you see upon entering and the last thing you see upon exiting. Upholstery can make or break a home’s interior and leave a lasting impression on guests. However, not only is a textile’s appearance important, but so is its quality and durability. Choosing the wrong upholstery can have disastrous results, so it’s crucial to carefully select upholstery for interior furnishings.
Having cherished furnishings customized with great upholstery can instantly elevate the look of an entire room, and today, we have more options than ever. Technological improvements have allowed fabric designers to manufacture both natural and engineered textiles that stand the test of time. Surprisingly, outdoor fabrics are becoming more and more suitable for the home as today’s concepts are the antithesis of stiff and waxy.
Making the investment into top-notch upholstery is definitely a worthwhile endeavor in the long run. For a highly durable, chic look, consider a textile like leather for couches and chairs. A subtle pattern or textured fabric can also be used to obscure wear and tear. Nonetheless, even the most durable of fabrics require careful maintenance and care. Vacuuming furnishings as well as applying a stain-resistant treatment can help increase the life of custom upholstery. Washable fabrics are also wonderful, especially if children are playing around the upholstery.

The best aspect of the Mont Blanc Winterpine leather is its distressed nature. When children and pets scratch the surfaces of upholstery, it can be a huge hassle. With distressed leather, any blemishes blend right in and even create a more rustic appeal.
The very bold Absolute Avocado leather is ideal for any eclectic space. Such a color green would work well in a nature-inspired environment because of its lush elements.
The feminine pattern of our Ingalls Papaya fabric is just dreamy. Picture this textile in a French countryside, cottage-inspired space in a quaint, holiday home. The candy-striped upholstery is a smashing textile for accent pillows and couch cushions and even hides damage better than plain fabrics.
