There are several advantages of sofas upholstered with sofa velvet fabric. Its rich texture makes it the perfect choice for rooms with bold colors. If you choose to use a plain cotton fabric for your sofa, it may look flat and lumpy. In contrast, the richness of velvet creates a gradient effect that makes any color subtle. For a more sophisticated look, velvet sofas make a stunning focal point for a living room or den.
To clean your velvet sofa
, you can either use a vacuum cleaner that has an upholstery attachment or wrap stockings around the nozzle. This will help prevent the vacuum from crushing the fiber nap and maintain its distinctive texture. Using a steamer is also an excellent choice as it fluffs the fibers, but you must be careful not to scratch the sofa with a brush. If you do, you can ruin the pile.
If you have spilled something on your sofa, use a soft cloth to wipe the liquid. Make sure you blot the area dry. If the stain is too large to wipe away, use a hair dryer on a cool setting to dry the sofa. Make sure to read the cleaning instructions and follow the manufacturer's directions. However, if you do not want to use the recommended solvent, you can use a cleaning agent.
The pile and density of the backing fabric play an important role in the quality of velvet. You can determine the quality of velvet by bending a sample diagonally. A tight weave means less visible backing, and less visible pile means lower quality velvet. Lastly, you should also look for color variations. A velvet couch with a unique pattern may stand out more than one color, and may look much more expensive. The final decision will depend on your personal preferences and lifestyle.
