What does a upholsterer do?

Inspect furniture to find needed repairs in the frame, upholstery, and springs. Remove and replace old and worn padding, filling, and broken springs. Measure, cut, and sew fabric, and attach it to the furniture frame with tacks, staples and glue.

How do I choose fabric for upholstery?

How to choose upholstery fabric for your sofa!

  1. Look for the number of rubs competed on the abrasion test. A fabric should be 15,000 or higher for residential use.
  2. Woven fabrics last longer than prints.
  3. Look for fabrics with tight weaves.
  4. Fabrics made of olefin (like Revolution is!) are generally very durable.

What is the best sofa upholstery?

Sofas for everyday use need durable fabric. Cotton and linen are winners (but watch out for loose weaves — they can snag). Also terrific: synthetic microfiber, which can mimic most fabrics and is stain resistant.
