The Magic of Upholstery Fabric…

As upholstery fabric is used for re-covering a cushion, chair, sofa, headboard or any other item of furniture, it has to be strong in order for it endure a lot of  physical contact. Investing in upholstery for a favourite armchair may be costly so it is important to select the right material for the job, taking into consideration the quality of the fabric as well as the design.
