Know How: Choosing The Right Fabric For Your Family


To your little ones your sofa is a place for acrobatics, a napkin for sticky fingers and a place to drop crumbs. That’s why investing in a hardwearing and easy-to-clean sofa that will stand the test of time is a must. Choosing the right fabric needn’t mean compromising on style, with a wide range of stunning fabrics to choose from. The family-friendly collection offers comfortable and versatile fabrics, with hypoallergenic qualities for easy care upholstery, which is durable but beautifully soft to the touch.

Our furry friends can create a real mess too: fur, claws and mucky paws can all stain and damage your sofa. Choosing a heavy-duty fabric is important, where fur can easily be brushed off and dirt wiped clean. Protecting the sofa from both children and pets needn’t be a struggle by taking extra precautions with the Staingard finishing method, which helps prevent long-term damage from general wear and tear.

The Finer Things

Keeping cosy is all about choosing the right kind of fabric; how a sofa feels to the touch is just as important as the style you choose. Wool is a great all-rounder for the family, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer, whilst linen and cottons offer a soft finish with intricate textures. For those who want to indulge, velvet offers the ultimate in luxurious comfort, with a super soft finish and stunning range of colours to choose from.
