Acrylic

Acrylic is a synthetic fiber that is often used as an upholstery fabric. It is also used in different blends. Acrylic imitates wool. It is available in a number of vivid colors that make acrylic upholstered furniture a perfect addition to informal sitting areas.

Strength:

  1. Acrylic is a soft fabric.
  2. It is easy to wash and clean.
  3. It dries quickly.
  4. It is available in vivid colors.
  5. It is sun-safe, which means it can be used as outdoor fabric for outdoor furniture.

Olefin

Olefin is a petroleum-based synthetic fiber. It is extremely durable and is perfectly suited for places where the furniture is used quite roughly and receives a great deal of wear. Resembling the look and feel of wool, olefin is one of the most long-lasting types of upholstery fabric.

Strength

  1. Olefin is made from melted plastic, which makes it water-resistant.
  2. It is resistant to chemicals and fire.
  3. Any stains that are water-based can be cleaned easily from olefin upholstery.
  4. It is resistant to fading.
  5. It can be cleaned with bleach.
  6. The color of the fabric is consistent throughout as the dye is added to the melted plastic, rather than dying the fabric after it is woven.

Chenille

Chenille is a French word for caterpillar. It is a super-soft, naturally obtained fabric. Chenille is a very stretchable fabric which means that backing is necessary. Chenille is most commonly used as an upholstery fabric for children’s furniture or comfort furniture pieces since it is considered a casual fabric.

Strength:

  1. It is a very soft fabric.
  2. It is durable.
  3. Chenille fabric can be conveniently cleaned at home.
  4. Chenille upholstered furniture is very comfortable.
  5. It is available in a number of colors.
