When choosing to reupholster a piece of furniture, there are many important details to think about. What is the look and feel you are trying to establish? What will the fabric feel like to your skin when spending much time sitting on the furniture?
Do you want a more modern look or do you want to consider and antique reproduction fabric? Also, do you have pets or children? Will your piece require the durability of a tightly-woven fabric or maybe even a faux leather? Perhaps most importantly how can you avoid making a fabric mistake that you will regret later?
