What is furnishing fabric?
Furnishing fabric are textiles suitable for use in interior decorating, which is used in upholstering and slip covering sofas as well as chairs. They are also fabrics used for curtains and blinds, soft furnishings such as quilts and pillows, homewares including cushions, throws, lampshades, bedheads and bedding, and even fabric suitable for outdoor furniture.

What should I consider when selecting fabric and furnishing items?
You need to think about how you use the room, how you want it to look, and what colours and textures you want to use. You might also want to consider the overall design and period of your home along with your personal taste.
It is always wise to ask for professional advice when choosing a furnishing fabric for a specific need as use and environmental factors can come into play with how it performs.
