3 Advantages of Velvet Upholstery Fabric

3 Advantages of Velvet Upholstery Fabric

Velvet is all over interior design magazines these days. People everywhere are obsessed with the fabric; they’re using it for upholstery and wearing it as clothing. Perhaps after reading about the three advantages of velvet upholstery fabric, you’ll understand why it’s so popular.

The Durability Factor

Individuals want their furniture to last a while. No one wants to buy a couch only to replace it a year later. If you don’t want to fall into this situation, consider getting velvet upholstery fabric by the yard. Velvet is durable, and there are no weaves or pileups as there are with other materials, making it perfect for pets whose claws get stuck in other fabrics. Additionally, colors are more vibrant on velvet because it’s so dense.

Time To Clean Up

You might think it’s challenging to clean and maintain velvet. Well, we’re here to tell you that this is absolutely not the case! Velvet is thick, so you can use a brush to remove hair or dander from the furniture. Cleaning will be even more effective if you use a vacuum. Spot treatment isn’t too difficult either—soap and water are all it takes, especially with a polyester velvet such as The Fabric Outlet’s Royale or Sorrento!

Kick Up Your Feet and Relax

Another advantage of velvet upholstery fabric is that it’s soft. There’s no comparable fabric to velvet. It’s thicker, smoother, and softer than other materials like cotton or polyester. The material is perfect for those wanting to cuddle up with a book and get warm by the fire. And in warm weather, you won’t stick to velvet when you get off the furniture either.

Velvet is taking over the textile industry. People are using it as curtains or furniture reupholstery. Perhaps velvet is the right material for your home’s design too.
