How to Select Fabrics
Please keep in mind that the fabrics shown on this website are digital images and the actual color may vary. Fabric swatches are available upon request.
The price of a fabric is seldom an indicator of its ability to wear well. Price is determined by such factors as the cost to manufacture the fibers, the complexity of the weaving process, and the dying process used to add color to the fibers. None of these factors affect the ability of the fabric to withstand normal wear and tear. Urine and moisture are the greatest threats, both of which are minimized with solutions from our large selection of fabrics. Since the fabric is also the most costly component of upholstered furniture, it is important to spend some time selecting the correct fabric. Our Design Consultants are with you every step of the way, and will be happy to ask you the appropriate questions so that they may recommend the fabric that will best satisfy your requirements.
Marquesa Lana Olefin®is an inert manmade fiber that is ideal for use in hard environments. The solution dyed fiber will not fade or react to chemicals or harsh cleaning agents, and is treated with DuPont Teflon to resist staining. It is also resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria.
Staph-Chek sub-liners under a typical textile cushion covers will protect the foam core from fluid penetration; specific fabrics can be laundered in the washing machine using cold water and then air dried.
Soil repellents like Teflon, Scotchgard or Zepel can be applied either at your site or at the factory. Textiles treated with surface coatings are only effective temporarily. They wear off with use or after laundering, and if done on site, are often unevenly applied.
Crypton is a fluid-proof, patented, engineered fabric system with the look and feel of fabric that provides stain, moisture and bacteria resistance, as well as breathable comfort and extreme strength and durability. Crypton provides the qualities of vinyl with the look and feel of fabric.
Vinyl Fabrics of today only vaguely resembles the vinyl of yesterday. No longer just the less expensive alternative to leather, vinyl has morphed from the plastic-like surface that stuck to your skin to a soft, supple line of highly-durable upholstery. Today’s generation of vinyls not only has a new look and feel, it also offers fashion-forward colors, embossmenst, and patterns.
Leather provides durability, but has limited design options and can be costly.
Upholstery Goes Green.
Fabric mills have begun to offer a growing selection of “green” upholstery products.
Green upholstery has become an increasingly viable product line for many fabric mills which has led to a greater variety of available styles, colors and patterns that fit the “green” label.
