Choosing the Right Textured Upholstery Fabrics

The world of fabrics offers an endless selection of prints to choose from – and there are many things to consider when deciding on the right textured upholstery fabric for sofas and chairs. Texture, durability, and design play a role in your decision as you create a space unique to your style and routine. Some fabrics are praised for durability and versatility while others are delicate and soft.  When using textured upholstery fabrics for home décor projects, you can find dimension and warmth seamlessly added to any space. 

One of the most common things customers look for in a fabric is durability. Knowing your furniture will stay clean and vibrant throughout the years is an added plus.  If furniture sees heavy use, you probably want to invest in a fabric that is made to last.  The kind of weave and thread largely determines the textured upholstery fabric’s strength, so be on the lookout for weave types when choosing fabrics.

Aside from durability, look and feel of the fabric are equally important. Coming home to a living room you love with sofas dressed in soft, alluring fabrics is a pleasure. While not as long-lasting, more delicate fabrics offer luxury others cannot provide. When looking for fine fabrics, trust us to help you find beautiful materials made to highlight your most cherished pieces. 

Some of the Best Fabrics for Comfort and Strength

Textured linen upholstery fabric is an especially great option for kids, pets, and heavy-use areas – it is quite strong and offers a classic look.  Made from the fibers of the flax plant, the threads withstand heavy wear and tear, even when wet.

At Aaron’s, we have a large selection of textured linens in a variety of colors for your upholstery projects.  Pastel linens provide a soft and neutral look, while more vibrant linens look great on accent chairs – or larger pieces beckoning to be admired.

For a more luxurious look, consider velvet, Jacquard or chenille textured upholstery fabrics.  Soft and alluring, they are pleasing to touch.  Dressing furniture in these materials makes them stand out from the rest. Velvet seems especially extravagant as it is double woven - reclining in a couch clad in velvet just feels fancy.  Along with texture, this fabric is stylish – who doesn’t notice a beautifully upholstered armchair dressed in shimmering velvet?

Chenille upholstery fabric is another soft material, perfect for home décor. By sewing silken thread and cotton or wool together, a comfy, textured fabric is produced.  Most chenille fabrics are made with 100% cotton or synthetic fiber and are used for a variety of household objects. Chenille fabrics come in all colors, so you never have to compromise on finding the fabric of your dreams.
