The Different Types of Fabrics

Posted by Janet Voigt on Thu, Aug 11, 2016 @ 08:00 AM

Not all fabrics are created equal. Choosing a fabric is one of the most  important parts of buying contract furniture for a facility. The fabric you  choose impacts several different things, including the overall look, feel, and  capabilities of your furniture.

Selecting a specific fabric style depends on what you want out of your  furniture. Certain fabrics feature bold colors or interesting designs. Other  types of fabric will be softer or more rugged than others. There are also  fluid-proof and fluid-resistant fabrics designed to protect your furniture and  make the clean-up process simpler.
