What can I do to create a warm, cozy atmosphere in my home?
There are so many ways to get cozy! Add texture to your room with fabrics that beg to be touched, like chenille, velvet, corduroy and even seersucker. Patterns, stripes and plaids can add interest, personality and warmth to upholstery as well. Increase the cozy quotient with accent chairs that that compliment or contrast the larger pieces of furniture in the room. Throws, area rugs and accents help complete the picture. Show your personality with books, photographs and mementos that reflect your interests and tell about your family. Finally, add layers of light to your room with floor lamps, table lamps and candles in addition to overhead lighting. Together, these elements will add a snug, cozy feel to any home!
I have an active family. What upholstery fabrics will stand up best to everyday wear and tear and still give the room some style?
Microfiber fabrics are durable, easy to clean, comfortable and are available in a variety of colorful options. Many blended fabrics, which combine synthetic and / or natural fibers, offer great design and stand up well to frequent use. Pattern fabrics are becoming more popular on upholstery and they can help hide wear and keep your furniture looking good longer. Leather is another family-friendly, durable option with lots of style.
