Sofas are now really popular as centerpieces for your living room which enhance the room beauty and get the ability to catch the eyes. When it comes to a modern sofa that will be placed in your living room you should know everything about this item. You should recognize the variety of sofa’s materials to select the one that suits your needs, décor and taste best.
The modern sofas available now in the market have a variety of everything; designs, shapes, colors, styles and, of course, materials. The materials are our matter of concern here which is divided into natural fabrics and others “synthetics and synthetic blends”. Let’s talk about them all briefly to get the one you desire.
Natural fabrics are leather, cotton, linen, wool, and silk. Leather is a luxurious fabric that may cost too much. But it also is durable, easy to clean and really comfortable. So, it suits the homeowners who have young kids or pets. While cotton instead is not a good choice for who has young kids or pets it fits newly married couple with no busy living room area.
Cotton fabric sofa really looks attractive but as a showpiece as it is not quite durable or stain-resistant. The same is applied to linen but it is more durable fabric than cotton.
Talking about wool it is really expensive but it looks great and luxurious besides being durable. But, unfortunately, it is rarely used to make many sofas. Silk is elegant and stylish but at the same time, it is fragile and sleek so a sofa made of silk needs to be not usually in use.
Synthetics and synthetic blends are as followings; microfiber, faux leather, chenille, and Acrylic. Microfiber and faux leather both are durable, easy to clean, and attractive, faux leather is more popular for elegant and luxurious fans and less expensive than real leather. Chenille is elegant and strong.
While acrylic is like wool soft, durable, it is stain, wrinkle, and fade resistant as well and it is supposed to be affordable for many. Finally, your choice depends on your budget, your room look, and your taste either to create your dream living area.
