The start of any upholstery project offers an exciting clean slate. Whether you want to recreate a truly classic design or produce a piece of furniture that reflects a more eccentric taste, with an exhaustive range of fabrics to choose from, Collards Upholstery can make any concept into a stunning reality. When it comes to reupholstering furniture, our Brentwood-based upholsterers take the time to get a complete understanding of your requirements to ensure the best possible results. This includes clarifying how you intend to use the item in your home.
For example, if its only going to receive moderate use at best, we can work with less durable fabrics. Conversely, items which receive daily use require a fabric with a high thread count, as tightly woven materials provide better durability.
Be it natural or synthetic, Collards Upholstery provides an array of fabrics perfect for any reupholstery project in the Brentwood area.
Leather – Whether in Brentwood or any other Essex or UK location, the durable qualities of leather need little introduction. Ideal for heavy use items, our upholsterers also recommend leather for its ease of maintenance. From damp wiping to gentle vacuuming, and from saddle soap to leather conditioner, you can clean and maintain leather in multiple ways.
Cotton – This natural fabric retains its popularity due to its impressive resistance to fading, pilling and general wear. The final durability depends on the chosen weave and finish. Canvas options provide more durable, casual finishes, while damask offers a formal option.
Wool – Whether pure wool or a wool blend, this fabric provides great durability and sturdiness with notable resistance to soil, wrinkling, fading and pilling. Generally speaking, wool comes in a blend with a synthetic fibre that makes it easier to clean as well as reducing the likelihood of felting fibres.
Vinyl – Our upholsterers recommend this fabric as a cost-effective, easy-to-care-for alternative to genuine leather. Vinyl makes an ideal solution for busy family homes in the Brentwood area, making them a great fit for living rooms and dining rooms.
Silk – As a delicate fabric, we advise our customers to only use silk on furniture in adult-only areas. Unfortunately, the mess and accidents that come with smaller children don’t make a good combination with this fabric. If soiled, silk must be professionally cleaned.
If you live in Brentwood and want to undertake a reupholstery project, please don’t hesitate to contact Collards Upholstery. With more than seven decades of experience behind us, our upholsterers have an unrivalled knowledge and collection of fabrics to suit any requirements.
