After spending quite a bit of time last week at my grandfather's upholstery business, Durham Upholstery, I started thinking more and more about upholstery and how the right fabric can make (or break) a piece of furniture. Selecting the right fabric is extremely important. The fabric should be durable for the amount of use it will receive and visually, it should help tie the remaining pieces in the room together. Having your furniture re-upholstered can be an expensive investment, be sure to consult your upholsterer with questions on the durability of any fabrics you're considering before purchasing.
