If you think that upholstery is only suitable for your grandmother's old armchair, think again. Today's upholstery is fresh and modern, with a broad range of styles that will fit perfectly in any room of your house. With so many options to choose from and so many potential applications, you are sure to find the perfect upholstery to suit your decorative taste. Here are a few suggestions to get your inspiration flowing.
Play with Pattern
Here at CushionWorld, we have a broad range of upholstery patterns in our collection, all of which can be used to bring new life to your furnishings and décor. From lattice and geometric patterns to medallion and floral designs, there is something for everyone in our showroom. We recommend using a solid, neutral fabric to upholster large pieces, like your sofa, to avoid overpowering the room. You can have fun with a more eclectic look for smaller items, like throw pillows or an accent ottoman.
Spruce Up Your Headboard
Upholstery looks great on headboards! This popular style can be yours when you trust CushionWorld with your headboard. We can add padding and upholster your current headboard or create a custom one in just about any shape and style. Stick with the classic tufted look, or go for something modern and sculptural. You can also create the look of an upholstered headboard at a more affordable price with strategically placed upholstered wall panels. You can continue the upholstered wall trend in other areas of your home as well.
Embrace the Colors of the Season
Over the last few months, we have seen more and more customers choosing upholstery in earth tones, including beige, gray and white. When using bold statement colors, keep it to just a few spots in a single room; you don't want the entire room in the same hue. For the rest of the room, choose patterns in neutral colors, or mix and match with other shades in the same color family.
Luxuriate in Velvet
Velvet is a traditional fabric that has seen quite a resurgence in recent years. One of the most wonderful aspects of velvet is that you can use it just about anywhere. Make a strong visual statement with a velvet lounge, or keep it simple with a couple of accent pillows. Because velvet is so elegant, it can add that extra something special to your formal living room or give your bedroom a touch of romantic flair.
Revive Old Furniture with New Upholstery
When you are ready to redecorate your home with upholstery furniture and accents, it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the cost of a quality piece, sold by a decorate showroom. If your budget is tight, you can stretch your dollar farther by reupholstering your existing items, rather than purchasing everything brand new. The experts at CushionWorld can reupholster your old furniture to transform it into something new and visually enticing.
