The fabrics and finishes add color to the rooms of our house and make the furniture and surfaces warmer and more comfortable. Let’s see how to use in furnishings fabrics and select the most suitable types and combining patterns so elegant and refined according to the trends in contemporary design.

The fabrics are one of the basic materials used in furniture, both as decoration and as a main component of sofas and armchairs. Changing the coverings in a room is a simple and inexpensive way to revise the look and update it according to the fashion. Among the various types of tissue that are in trade we distinguish between various types , not only based on the color, but also the type of fiber and the heaviness of the material. The cotton and flax are among the most used natural fibers, depending on the machining are more or less light and are used for a wide range of products, from the curtains to the linen, but also for tablecloths and linings. The silky, smooth and light, is used for placemats, pillows and sheets precious, smooth or velvet . For the sofas are used heavy fabrics such as canvas or more options such as cotton velvet, jacquard or damask, with the typical floral decorations. Among the tissues we have those technical details, stain-resistant and waterproof and ecological, with organic fibers and not chemically treated.


When we use the fantasies of the reasons we choose that recall the colors we used in the room. We combine together two very different reasons on the furniture , playing on the contrast, let us associate two similar fantasies not to have a chaotic effect. One reason just mentioned or a lively and important geometry can completely revamp a chair or sofa: we try to use fabrics with two different patterns to cover a chair making different seat and back. A fabric with special ornaments can also be used as wallpaper, maybe on a single wall instead of wallpaper. We carefully select the fabric to cover the sofa: if we use a bright color we avoid repeating it on too many elements in the room. If you prefer neutral colors simply choose pillows with colored linings to break the monotony. The type of fabric is essential for the sofa of a living room elegant and classic use velvet or damask, for a more informal setting are perfect cotton and synthetic fabrics, durable and practical.
