Selecting the Perfect Faux Fur Fabric to Cover Chairs: Choosing the right faux fur fabric is crucial:

  • Decorative vs. High Traffic: For decorative items, any of FabricLA's faux fur fabrics will suffice. For frequently used furniture, consider our luxury range for enhanced durability.

  • Understand Wear and Tear: Both synthetic and real furs suffer from abrasion. To mitigate this, choose shorter pile fabrics (less than 35 mm) from FabricLA, as they outperform longer pile options in terms of durability.

Fabric Specifications from FabricLA: Our faux fur fabrics feature:

  • Width: All faux fur fabrics are sold with a standard width of 60 inches, consistently detailed on our product pages.
  • Composition: Manufactured on a knitted base, our fabrics require no hemming and are designed to minimize shedding.
  • Heavyweight Faux Fur: FabricLA's Faux Fur is about 800 gsm and above. These are ideal for high-end upholstery and rugs, providing a plush, luxurious feel.

How to Upholster with Faux Fur from FabricLA: To achieve a professional finish, follow these guidelines:

  1. Prepare the Surface: Use a thin layer of wadding for additional padding to hold the fabric in place.
  2. Secure the Fabric: Opt for a flexible metal fastening strip over traditional methods like pins or nails for a uniform hold and easy adjustability.
  3. Finishing Options: FabricLA's faux fur can also be sewn, stapled, or glued, depending on your project requirements.

Maintaining Your Faux Fur Upholstered Furniture: FabricLA's faux fur fabrics are easy to maintain:

  • Spot Cleaning: Clean stains with a sponge and soap, air dry, and brush to restore its natural look.
  • Machine Washable: Wash on a cold “wool” cycle without fabric softener. Avoid heat drying.
  • Regular Care: Regular brushing and fluffing will keep the fur voluminous and visually appealing.
