Choosing the right fabric

WE HAVE MOVED! It has been a big month for us at Daniel's Quality Upholstery. We are proud to say that we have (finally!) moved to a larger, more spacious factory, just around the corner from our previous workshop. By far, our favourite addition to the workshop is the new, generous office space with our vast range of fabric samples on full display. It's something we (and our clients) have needed for a long time.


So now you can come on down, bring a friend and have a seat while you decide on the perfect colour/fabric choice for your job. Though our large sample range may make it difficult to choose just one, at least we can now make you feel a little more comfortable while you take the time to decide.

Tips on choosing the right fabric:

 • Go in with a colour palette in mind. Ask yourself "What colours are prominent in my space at home/establishment?"

• If you already have bright coloured or strong patterned pieces, maybe consider a neutral or plain fabric to compliment your existing furniture. Or, if you're looking to create a "show stopper", feel free to go extreme.

• Ask yourself "What will the furniture be used for? Is it an occasional or heavy use item? Commercial (with fire rated requirements) or domestic?" Choose fabrics that will help meet your needs.

For example, we all know children and dining chairs can be a messy mix. Perhaps a vinyl or leather recovery would be more practical. We will always happily offer our professional advice on how to care for and clean your newly created or upholstered piece.

All fabrics are pre-treated before delivery to help prolong the life and brightness of your furniture and also have fabric care kits available for purchase.

• If you have a fabric design or pattern in mind, bring along a small off-cut or take a photo of a favourite piece you may have seen in a store. We may just have that exact same fabric available, if not, we'll be more than happy to help you find a similar style.

 • Have fun. At the end of the day, the overall finish is entirely up to you and your taste. That's the beauty of re-upholstery.
