When you find a fabric that you really like, you could be tempted to try to use it on large areas, such as furnishings. However, you want to make sure that your selected fabric will be able to stand up to daily wear and tear before you buy.
When choosing luxury upholstery fabrics for your home or office, you want to consider who will be using it and how much wear it will receive. For example, if you have pets or children, you may wish to choose a water-washable fabric for easy care to remove dirt and stains. You can choose more fragile fabrics in an office where the furnishings are only rarely used.
Selecting your luxurious fabrics for your home furnishings can be enjoyable, but again, keep in mind the use. If you have pets, you may wish to avoid velvet fabrics or those that have raised patterns because pet hairs will stick to these fabrics and be readily visible and may be harder to remove. If you have children, you may wish to choose darker earthy or natural colors to hide the occasional dirt until you can properly clean the dirt or stain.
