Customisation – the Point of Difference

One of the major points of difference with purchasing from Sulfaro, rather than the bigger furniture retailers and franchises, is that you as the customer have the opportunity to customise your selected furniture. That’s right – you get to choose the fabrics, the leathers, the cushioning and the support you desire. You select the accessories – the buttoning, the piping, the skirting, the fringing, the timber finishing and more. Select the colours, the fabrics or leathers, the lumbar support you prefer. Our in-house Design Team will guide you through the selection process. As Sulfaro create and manufacture all furniture on the premises there is also the opportunity of meeting with our Artisans, Craftsmen and Craftswomen to discuss your new furniture and the processes involved in creating it.

Fabric Selection – The Choice is Yours

Selecting the right fabrics or leather will often depend upon the intended use of the furniture,whether its high traffic or low usage. Selecting a fabric that is both beautiful yet durable is often a sensible decision. Our Sulfaro Design team can assist you and demonstrate a fabulous selection of fine fabrics and leathers from the worlds leading suppliers available to you at Sulfaro

Here is a list of fabrics, both Natural and Synthetic reprinted from the Houzz.com.au website. It is a useful guide and we consider it reasonably accurate and useful.

  • Cotton is durable and resistant to wear and fading, but not as resistant to dirt and wrinkling. Cotton can go from casual to formal depending on the weave.
  • Cotton blends are slightly more durable than cotton due to the mix of additional fibres.
  • Leather is durable and functional. It wears well and gets better with age.
  • Linen is resistant to pilling and fading. It provides a crisp and casual look to furniture. However, it wrinkles and shows dirt easily.
  • Silk is elegant and adds a sophisticated and formal touch to furniture. Due to its delicacy, it’s best for light use and requires professional cleaning.
  • Wool blends with synthetic fibre for easier maintenance. It’s durable while also being resistant to pilling, fading, wrinkling and soil.
  • Acetate is developed as imitation silk, and is resistant to pilling and shrinking; however, it doesn’t hold up well for everyday use due to its tendency to wear, wrinkle and fade in the sun.
  • Acrylic is developed as imitation wool and may pill easily if not of high quality. However, it’s softer than natural wool, and is resistant to wear, wrinkling, dirt and fading.
  • Microfibre fabric is made from polyester fibres, is similar to suede, and easy to maintain.
  • Nylon is often blended with other fibres, creating a durable fabric that won’t wrinkle or soil but may fade and pill.
  • Polyester is usually found in a blend with other fibres, and is resistant to wrinkling and fading.
  • Rayon, though prone to wrinkling, is durable and affordable.
  • Vinyl is durable and a more affordable option compared to leather.

Functionality and Reality

A clever designer will select fabric that not only looks superb but also wears well, is easy to maintain yet synchronises well with the style of the furniture and the decor and feel of the room you have selected.

Houzz advises: Neutral tones and floral prints work well in a traditional space, while bright colours and bold patterns give off a more contemporary vibe. Your lifestyle also dictates your design. 

Here are four quick questions to ask while browsing upholstery fabric online:

• How long is this upholstery meant to last?
• How often will you clean and iron it?
• Where do you plan to use it – indoors or outdoors?
• Which style of furniture pieces is this upholstery meant for?
