Crafting the perfect space that accurately reflects a brand requires the making of many different decisions. Knowing how to maximize the space and optimize it for the specific needs of your company is important; from having a true understanding of the size of the space, to the size of various elements and how different colours can compliment each other, collaborating with a professional design firm is always a sound choice.

When it comes to choosing the right fabric to use for seating, draperies, etc. there are some important considerations which should be made, and they include:

‘What mood are you trying to convey?

The color of your fabric will have a lot to do with it. Brighter colors will add a cheery vibe to any room, while warm tones can provide a relaxing atmosphere.

Will it be in the sunlight?

Remember fabric will fade over time if it’s in the sun so you will want that to play into your decision. So, either you will want to move your furniture away from any windows or you will need to choose a fabric option that will hide the fading as much as possible. You also want to avoid placing your furniture right next to a heat source.

Where will your furniture be located?

The durability of your upholstery will depend on how often the furniture is used. If your furniture doesn’t get used often then you can get away with purchasing some of the more sensitive fabrics like linen and silk, whereas if your furniture is in a high traffic reception area you will want to choose something that can easily withstand the use. Combination fabrics and engineered fabrics tend to be more durable than natural ones. Also, the tighter the weave, the longer the fabric tends to hold up.’ (source: btod.com)
