The home decorative fabric has a wide price range, depending on the material and quality. Modern technology makes it possible to get some incredible high-performance and comfortable fabrics at a cheap price. What factors might influence your choice?
The upholstery fabric must be flexible enough to wrap around the upholstered object and fit enough to create a nice contour around the upholstered part. In extreme cases, imagine trying to decorate a cushion with cardboard. It simply doesn't fold and tucks well to fit the cushion nicely. Yes, cardboard is not a decorative fabric, but it demonstrates the importance of drape.
Generally, heavier fabrics will be thicker or denser. This means they will be more durable and let less light through. This is important for those who are considering using upholstery fabrics for curtains. Conversely, heavier fabrics tend to have less breathability and less drape (solid words), which may not be ideal for some furniture types.
It's a fact that most fabrics will fade. What is the cause? In a process called photodegradation, light (ultraviolet light at worst) causes dyes within fabrics to break down.
To a lesser extent, visible light and heat can also cause distortion and fading of fabric color. The sun will emit all of these for a long time. So if you want your upholstery to be placed in a sunny location, choose a fabric that won't fade easily. Better yet, keep them completely out of direct sunlight—unless you're willing to pay for a specialized window tint.
