  • Consider Your Lifestyle: Before diving into fabric swatches, take a moment to assess your lifestyle and how your furniture will be used. Do you have pets or children? Will the furniture be in a high-traffic area? Opt for durable, stain-resistant fabrics like performance fabrics or leather for busy households.
  • Evaluate Durability: Upholstery fabrics are categorized by their durability and performance ratings. Look for fabrics with a high rub count (measured in double rubs) for longevity and resistance to wear and tear. Cut Yardage offers a wide selection of high-quality fabrics that are built to withstand the test of time.
  • Explore Texture and Feel: The texture of the fabric can greatly impact the overall look and feel of your furniture. From plush velvets to sleek leathers, the possibilities are endless. Consider the tactile experience you want to create and choose a fabric that compliments your design aesthetic.
  • Select the Right Color and Pattern: Upholstery fabric plays a significant role in defining the color palette and mood of a room. Opt for neutral colors for timeless appeal or make a bold statement with vibrant hues or eye-catching patterns. Cut Yardage offers a vast array of fabric options to suit every taste and style preference.
  • Think About Maintenance: Different fabrics require varying levels of maintenance and care. While some fabrics are easy to clean with a simple wipe or spot treatment, others may require professional cleaning or special care instructions. Choose a fabric that aligns with your maintenance preferences and lifestyle.
