Upholstered furniture is very on-trend right now, and may be just the thing you need to refresh your interior. With a wide variety of styles, sizes and materials on offer, there’s something for every room. Whether you’re adding an accent chair to a bedroom, refreshing your dining area with comfortable fabric-covered seating, or adding a luxurious sofa to your living room, upholstered furniture adds class and style to any space.
If you’re feeling brave, why not create your own custom fabric furniture? Some of the best upholstered sofas, chairs and benches started life with a completely different look.
Upholstered Dining Benches and Fabric Covered Sofas
Beautiful fabric furniture isn’t just for homes. Upholstered seating is something that can add a touch of luxury to a range of spaces. Fabric upholstered furniture works well in offices, cafes, bars and hotels.
An upholstered bench with back is a must-have piece; the back adds further comfort and allows the bench to be used in a variety of different settings. A fabric sofa or bench of this sort can be used in the waiting area of a hair salon, or it could be used in a shoe shop as somewhere to sit while trying on footwear. We also recommend this type of seating as a great alternative to dining chairs for a kitchen, dining room or restaurant setting.
You can see great examples of upholstery in French style furniture. You could consider a French style sofa bench, which is a modern take on traditional Parisian design, and would add a touch of luxury to a bar, boutique hotel or spa. Contemporary colours include cream, grey and stone. Often having deep buttoned backs, these comfortable and sophisticated sofas exude elegance and style.
Fabric Accent Chairs
Don’t restrict yourself to ‘what it says on the tin’, there are some fabulous upholstered dining chairs on the market today that would make wonderful accent chairs or feature chairs for a bedroom, hallway or living room.
When searching for the perfect upholstered feature chair, choose an oversized chair – one that is slightly larger than a standard dining chair. We find that carver chairs can often be more decorative than side chairs, and the added arms give extra comfort and can make your new accent chair double up as a small armchair.
French style upholstered armchairs are a glamorous choice. These elegant, fabric-covered carver chairs radiate class. Why not go for a buttoned outer back that adds further detail to the chair and ensures it looks fantastic from all angles? This style of chair would also work well in a salon, adding to the feeling of being pampered. Accent chairs would be the perfect addition to a dressing table area, and could be complimented with large, plush cushions or other upholstered furniture.
Upholstered Side Chair or Fabric Dining Chairs
If you’re searching for a simple way to add upholstered furniture to your interior, look no further than your kitchen or dining area. Upholstered kitchen chairs are an easy way to get your fabric furniture fix.
To enhance a dining area, be that in a home or restaurant, choose unique furniture, such as linen upholstered dining chairs to give your room a fresh feel. Grey fabrics work well in darker spaces, and cream for more neutral interiors.
Don’t stop at side chairs – if you took our advice on accent chairs, you can add carvers in a complementing material to the ends of your dining table when you have extra guests, and then use them as standalone feature chairs when they are not in use!
