Types of Upholstery Fabrics

Upholstery fabrics must be both durable and comfortable for regular use. Different textiles are better suited to different uses. Selecting an appropriate fabric is an important first step for reupholstering a piece of furniture. Indoor furniture, outdoor furniture, and car seats will all have different requirements for fabric type. Fabric can be bought by the yard at a local fabric store.

  • The appearance of indoor furniture can be drastically modified and improved by a change to its upholstery. A sturdy cotton or polyester blend will be suitable for many items. An elegant, high end piece of furniture may be better suited with a velvet finish. If an antique piece of furniture is being improved, a vintage style of upholstery fabric such as silk or linen may be in order.
  • Outdoor furniture requires exceptionally durable fabrics. Vinyl or other synthetic fabrics may make for appropriate coverings for patio furniture. Materials must be able to hold up to the elements, including rain, sun, and snow. Fabric stores with a large selection may offer suitable options. Online distributors will also offer fabrics for this use.
  • Car seats may also be reupholstered. Leather and vinyl are the most common materials for car seats. These fabrics may be purchased by the yard from specialty distributors. Many drivers opt for car seat covers. These are generally made of softer textiles like fleece or cotton. They also protect the material underneath the cover, preserving the value of the car. Fleece car seat covers are available at most auto supply stores.

    The upholstery on furniture heavily influences its appearance and comfort. Indoor furniture, outdoor furniture, and car seats all have very unique upholstery requirements. Selecting the appropriate fabric for upholstery will improve the quality of the furniture.
