Sometimes all a space needs to feel refreshed is a small tweak, like changing the fabric on a sofa or switching out your window treatments. Instead of doing a complete renovation, here are some specially curated furniture upholstery ideas that provide that easy lift you’re looking for.
Maybe you want to add some new touches of color or patterns to your space, or maybe the furniture isn’t quite right and you want to replace it with something more contemporary. Whatever the case, these chic furniture upholstery ideas will help transform your home and make it feel new again!
If you’ve been sensing that the energy in your home is dark and oversaturated, take a page from a minimalist playbook and pare down your aesthetic to something more soothing. To make a space feel lighter and brighter, layer in upholstery with light neutrals like white, beige, gray, or ivory. These colors set an easy foundation from which to add in pops of color or coordinate with your existing decor.
A great way to add interest and dimension to your living room is with textural fabrics. Think velvet, bouclé, chenille, jacquard, and leather. These rich fabrics can be used on everything from sofas and chairs to pillows and throws. Not only will they add a luxurious look and feel to your space, but they’ll also be extra cozy come wintertime.
If you’re looking to give your sofa or chair a revamp, linen upholstery is a great way to add a touch of laid-back elegance to your living room. Linen is a natural fiber that is durable with a beautiful drape that can make any room look more sophisticated. Particularly in the South, linen is a popular choice for its breathability and comfortable handle. It’s also machine-washable, making cleaning up after kids a breeze.
French country style is timelessly chic, and toile print upholstery is the perfect way to bring it into your home. Instantly recognizable, toile looks chic and sophisticated while also being whimsical. While blue toile is classic, it does come in a variety of other colors and patterns, so you can find the perfect shade to match your decor. Plus, you’ll find toile to be surprisingly versatile—it can be used in a traditional or modern living room.
If your furniture upholstery hasn’t been holding up as you would like over the years, consider switching to performance blend fabrics. Designed to be more durable and easy to care for, performance fabrics like Crypton and Sunbrella withstand wear and tear better than natural fiber alternatives. Even if you have kids and pets jumping around, you can be sure that your investment will last.
