What kind of upholstery should your patio furniture have? Will the leather sofa in the living room fade over time if you don’t draw the blinds to keep the sun away? Do you have kids and pets around, and therefore require waterproof fabric for your sofa?
Fortunately, there is a ‘right’ answer to each of these questions. For example, acrylic, woven polyester, and olefin, are durable fabrics with UV resistance, making for great outdoor application. These synthetic materials don’t break down easily and can survive harsh weather conditions.
Additionally, if you have a leather lounge chair to introduce a touch of class to your living room, you will have to keep the blinds drawn, or alternatively position the couch away from direct sunlight. And finally, in the case of saving your furniture from rowdy kids and pets, leather is your friend. Not suede, silk, or velvet.
