Covering Your Cushions:The fabric that you choose for the upholstery slipcover and casings for your cushions will be the major style decision that you make. It will also be a major factor in deciding how long your new investment will last. Among the durable, natural fabrics that you can choose are cotton, wool, linen and leather. Among the synthetics, olefin is one of the most versatile fibers available. You can find olefin upholstery fabrics in weaves that mimic nearly any woven fabric - that are wash and wear easy when it comes to care. Take the extra trouble to make sure that your slipcovers and the covers for your cushions are removable so that they can be easily dry-cleaned or machine washed.
Leather Is More Durable: Whether the sofa is replacing a worn out upholstered couch or a beat-up futon, leather simply looks nicer. The variety of finishes and durability of materials keeps leather looking like new for longer. Rather than worrying about rips or tears in the material, owners can look forward to tasteful aging and unique wear. Older leather adds character and charm to a room instead of looking worn and tired.
