Questions To Ask Your Upholstery Fabric Suppliers
If you are in search of the best quality upholstery for your professional service, there are a few things to keep in mind, and questions to ask your fabric suppliers. While many people think the most important aspect to choosing upholstery is the colour, you may be surprised that it isn’t the case. One of the first and most important questions to get an answer to from your fabric suppliers is about the fabric’s durability. The importance of fabric durability varies, admittedly, on the piece of furniture, and which room it will be used in. It also depends on whether it will be used in a residential or commercial setting, and the amount of traffic it needs to withstand. Your fabric choice should reflect these issues. Here are a few more aspects to keep in mind when buying upholstery from your preferred supplier: • Woven patterns – this type of upholstery simply lasts longer than printed ones, as do tight weaves and higher thread counts. Thread count refers to the number of threads per square inch of fabric. Put simply, denser fabric lasts longer; • Fabric durability – this is important if your upholstery will receive daily use.
