The first thing that comes to mind when you are thinking about buying upholstered furniture is what colour fabric to choose. But while the colour you choose for your chair upholstery IS important, there are other things to consider that are just as important.
The durability of the fabric will depend on the piece of furniture you have chosen, where the furniture will be used, and if you have children or pets.
Try choosing a chair upholstery or fabrics that complement the décor of your home.
The fabric you choose should blend in with the character and style of the piece it is covering. For example, a traditional style of fabric is perfect for a traditional style of frame. If you have an *adventurous* sense of style and you know how to merge different styles together – go for it!
An approach such as this will add originality to your space. For example, a classic wing backed chair with a bold geometric design. This will work well in a contemporary style room – the wing-back chair is the accent and the print connects to, or compliments the rest of the decor in the room.
Remember that some fabric can look quite formal, while other fabrics are more casual. Choose a fabric that echoes your own sense of style and the mood of the room.
The colour is often the first choice made when buying furniture, it will have an impact on the decor of the room, especially if the sofa is large and will dominate the room.
Make sure the colour you have chosen is one you can live with, avoid bold colours if the room is small. Neutral colours are often the safest since they tend to suit a room for a long time. If you have children or pets, try and avoid lighter colours.
