Buying furniture can be fun, but it’s no small investment. Ultimately you want furnishings that compliment your interior design, are durable and comfortable. Leather and fabric lounges come in a number of different configurations. Let’s review some things to consider before making a final selection.
Style and Fabrics That Compliment Your Home
Modern fabric lounges can have a sleek design or a plush, pillowed look. If you want to add a vintage theme in your living area you might consider a darker leather couch or fabric lounge with polished mahogany feet. Try contrasting a lounge covered with a smooth fabric with a pillow covered in a coarsely woven material. Alternatively, if you want to brighten the room or give it a more open feeling, adding a cream-colored leather lounge and a soft knit throw is a simple yet elegant solution. Prefer something more contemporary? Match a chocolate fabric lounge with our Clair leather chair for a touch of unexpected colour.
Consider chaise lounge fabrics before buying. If you plan to curl up on your bedroom chaise lounge on a weekend morning and read awhile, you probably won’t be very comfortable for long on slick leather or vinyl fabric. Look for a fabric lounge covered in a cool silk or cotton material for a softer place to relax. You’ll also want to consider whether the fabric is washable, especially if you have children. A modern fabric lounge upholstered with stain-resistant microfiber may be your best bet in this situation.
Think about the function of your fabric lounge. Is it intended for use in a lobby or for snuggling with your sweetheart while your watch the latest movie on the television. Perhaps you are planning a home entertainment centre where reclining seats offer a comfortable place to sit for two hours. If you do a lot of entertaining of large groups, you’ll need more seating during an evening dinner. Corner fabric lounges are great way to seat several people together.
