Top Reasons to Upholster an Old Piece of Furniture

Whether you’re moving into a new home or redecorating, you can’t help but notice old furniture that has been lying around for years. Maybe you bought it years ago, or it was inherited from a family member. Be it an old lounge chair, faded couch, or ripped cushions, the urge to replace old furniture is strong because it looks out of place, or outdated. But is it really practical to get rid of them and buy a new one? If you want to refresh your furniture, reupholstering might just do the trick.

New Look, Old Memories


An ottoman you bought with your first salary, the chair cushions you bought for your first house, or your father’s favorite chair - things with sentimental value are hard to throw away. That doesn’t mean you’d have to keep them in your garage so new ones can take their place. With proper care, they can serve as family heirlooms. Classic pieces of furniture can easily be modified to fit your current style. It just needs the right kind of fabric and skilled reupholsterers.

Client Testimonial


Thank you a million for revitalizing our Queen Anne's so beautifully! I told My husband that the style might date us but then he reminded me that the antique set is 1800’s!! I started to take inventory of the entire room and average age of furniture is 1800 with a nod to 1700 in wall coverings!!! We now have trendy fabric! - Happy Tucson Customer

Better Fabric for Longevity and Style


When choosing the right upholstery-grade fabric, you have to take some things into consideration: Do you want the space to appear bright, simple, or intricate? Who’s going to use the space? How often is it going to be used? For example, Mildew-proof fabrics like Sunbrella is great for both indoor and outdoor use. Aside from being easy to clean, it can withstand high traffic, so you don’t have to worry about it being used to often. Most upholstery-grade fabrics comes in different textures, colors, and patterns that can match any space in your home. The possibilities of customization are endless.

Environmentally Friendly


We need to bring back the good old habit of fixing things when they’re broken. The idea of getting new furniture may sound great, but nothing beats the feeling of giving old things new value.  Re-upholstering lengthens the life of your furniture. By simply modifying your old couch or chair, you’re creating far less waste, and using less energy. 

High Quality, High Value


Don’t throw out Granny’s Victorian-style chairs just yet. Oftentimes, older furniture is made with high quality materials & unique designs that is held at high value these days. Breath new life into it by choosing durable, elegant, upholstery-grade fabrics- making them looks as good as new. If you can’t find a place in your home for old furniture, why not reupholster and refurbish them? If it doesn't fit your home's style, you can easily put it up on ebay or Craigslist - that way you’ll have funds to buy a new, modern couch or chair for your living room.

Custom Drapery Styles, Trimmings, and Accessories for your Home

Summer’s here. If you want to block the sunshine in style, it’s time to take a look at your window treatments and give them a little boost. With all kinds of drapery, trimmings, and accessories available, you may find it overwhelming to choose. We’re here to help. Here’s a handy list of drapery trimmings and accessories for different home styles.

 

Working with Custom Drapery


Getting custom drapery for your home is always the best option. You’ll be able to pick and choose the fabric and have them styled to your liking. Of course, there are some things you should consider before having custom drapery made. Think about how you would like to hang your curtains - by curtain pole or track?

Curtain rods are most commonly used. On the other hand. curtain tracks are almost invisible, often layering different types of curtain fabrics. Think about how thick you want the fabric as well. If you want to completely block out the sun, heavier fabrics or blackout fabrics will do the trick. Sheer curtains are best for homes that are not completely facing the sun.

Types of Pleating


Now that you’ve thought about how you want to hang your curtains and the kind of fabric you like, it’s time to choose the kind of pleating. The pinch pleat and tailored pleat are best for classic looking homes. The same goes for the goblet pleat. These types of pleating sophistication to almost any kind of fabric. Other styles like the box pleat, grommet, rod pocket, and inverted pleat look best in modern or contemporary style homes.

Trimmings


Next up: choosing your trimmings. Before you choose, consider the fabric and the type of pleating you want. Classic trimmings like brush fringes, bullion fringe, tassels or braid trims do not pair well with solid, more contemporary colors. These trimmings best fit classic patterns, neutral, or earthy colors. For a more modern look, ribbon banding, tape trims, and fan edge are the best choices.

Accessories


The last but not the least, are the drapery accessories. The first thing you should look at is your curtain rod. Standard metal rods just won’t cut it, after you’ve painstakingly chosen the fabric, pleating and trimmings of your custom drapery. Curtain rods and finials should match the look of your room. Ornamental rods & finials are great for classic or vintage style rooms. For contemporary rooms, the simpler, the better. Also consider tie backs or holdbacks that contrast or complement the color of your drapery fabric.

Want to see our wide collection of drapery trimmings and accessories? Head over to our store at 3105 N Campbell Ave Tucson, and talk to our friendly staff! They’ll help you pick the best trimmings and accessories for your home. We also do custom drapery according to your specifications.

Custom Projects For Every Room in Your Home

Refreshing your furniture? We’ve all been there. We spend hours looking for decorating inspiration online only to find the same trend over and over. When all else fails, let your imagination loose and think about how you would want your home to look. Don’t know where to start? Here’s a list of custom home projects for every room in your home.

 

Living Room


When choosing or replacing the furniture in your living room, seats, throws, and slipcovers should take priority over any other furniture, as they are the most used.

Accent Chairs - Start with accent chairs. This is the best way to break the monotony in any space is to use contrasting or complementary colors or patterns. Some accent chairs also look great with multi-fabric upholstery.

Ottomans - Ottomans are also a great addition to any living room, as it doubles as a seat and extra storage.

You may also use ottomans as an extension of your couch, or use it as a footstool.

Couches - Loveseats or three-seater couches? It depends on the amount of space you have of course! Regardless of the size, your couch is the centerpiece of the room, so you should be careful when choosing the fabric for upholstery. Couches usually have neutral colors (or patterns) so it’s easy to contrast with other chairs and throws.

Slipcovers - Slipcovers for your chairs and couches are great too if you want to change your style once in a while.

Dining Room


Dining Chairs - How do you choose the right fabric for your dining chairs? For starters, it depends on the type of material the chair is made of. There’s also size to consider, and the type of table you have. The best fabrics to use are stain-resistant fabrics like microfiber, or even outdoor performance fabrics Sunbrella.

Bedroom


When we think of the bedroom, the first thing that comes to mind is comfort. It’s not just about physical comfort - it’s also about how your bedroom looks.

Headboards - Headboards don’t only protect your walls from scratches, they give you visual comfort. If you’re the expressive type, you can also use the headboard as decor. You can use a variety of fabrics to upholster your headboard - from linen to velvet. Tufted headboards look great in more classic bedrooms, while leather headboards are perfect for a more industrial feel.

Bedding - Why settle for plain old sheets when you want to have maximum physical and visual comfort?

The most common - and perhaps the most comfortable - fabrics used for sheets and mattress covers are linen and cotton.

Backyard


Sometimes we just want to relax outdoors without leaving the comfort of our own homes. When choosing outdoor or patio furniture, consider fabrics that are comfortable, but at the same time, able to withstand the wear and tear.

Patio Furniture - From couches to throws, umbrellas to awnings, the best outdoor fabric should be able to withstand the wear and tear. How do you determine if a fabric is strong enough? Ask your local fabric store about double rubs or abrasion rating. An abrasion rating of 20,000 should be enough for heavy use.

Having custom furniture made to your specifications will make your home look one of a kind, a space that you can truly call your own. Fabrics That Go can help you turn your ideas into reality. Visit our store or contact us today.

Sunbrella for Your Arizona Home

The Sonoran might be known as the wettest desert, but on average it rains only 36 days in a year. Arizona is sunny for the most part of the year, and chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time in your backyard or patio. How do you make your outdoor spaces more inviting? Using the right outdoor fabric for your furniture can make all the difference. Fabrics That Go carries Sunbrella, and it’s one of the best outdoor fabrics you can get. Here’s why:

Made to Last


Sunbrella is a type of fabric with wool-like or cotton-like appearance and texture but is totally synthetic. Made with 100% acrylic fiber, it’s durable enough to withstand the intense Arizona sun and almost any outdoor activity. Because it’s synthetic, it’s fade and stain resistant, it’s not susceptible to mold and mildew.

Popular for Indoor & Outdoor Furniture


Outdoor drapery, grill covers, outdoor upholstery and pillows --these are only a few ways you can use Sunbrella. Because it’s easy to clean, it’s also popular for indoor furniture, especially in high traffic areas in homes with pets and children.

Bar stool cushions or upholstery for easy clean up, with attractive solid colors, are perfect for outdoor bars and barbecues.
Wipe down spills and moisture easily off Sunbrella Fabric, which will last for many years, maintaining its vibrant colors.

Style Options to Fit Any Home


With so many color options and patterns to choose from, Sunbrella fabrics make it easier for you to match your outdoor furniture with your landscaping. Pro-tip: matching the color of your plant pots with the biggest furniture will give the space a cohesive feel. Popular solid colors are teal and rust orange.

Southwestern stripes like the orange and red Bravada Salsa fabric (longest running pattern) brings an interesting pop of color. Taupe and grey are also popular bases for larger furniture.

Show Off Your Arizona Pride with Southwestern Pieces in Your Home

Arizona has a unique culture and that can easily be shown in architecture and interior design. This distinct Southwestern style is colorful yet sophisticated and can be used with many other interior styles. It’s not that hard to incorporate this style into your home. Show off your Arizona pride with these simple tips:

 

Show Sophistication with Patterns


Pendelton, cabin, southwestern, Mexican, serape & Navajo patterns have all have cultural significance. Most of these patterns use colors akin to the Southwestern landscape and serves as a testament to lineage and heritage.

Oftentimes, people associate class, style, and taste to the weavers dedicated to reclaiming this style.

In hues of brown and red, sometimes even green and blue, these patterns break the monotony in the negative spaces of your home. Adding southwestern patterned pillows with vibrant colors to a plain couch can be a great idea.

Try mixing and matching to see which works best for you.

Add Variety to Space


Some Southwestern style fabrics integrate very well with most Arizona homes. It adds a pop of color while retaining the cozy, inviting feeling. The patterns are interesting enough to uplift a space, but not loud enough to stick out like a sore thumb.

This sofa is the epitome of southwestern color. You can add the most amazing upholstery pillows in the style you're looking for to accent the plain space.

Furs, hides, and leathers also make perfect southwestern accent pieces. Fabrics That Go has a wide variety to choose from, IN-STOCK!

Update Worn Down Furniture


Incorporating Southwestern style into your home doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. A great idea would be reupholstering a beat up wooden chair,  an old ottoman, or a faded couch. Simply use the fabrics as valances, table runners or throw pillows covers. Stick with the existing palettes in your home when choosing a new fabric.

Most Popular Southwestern Fabric

Chaco Sage is one of Fabric That Go's most popular upholstery fabric. Custom-made furniture using this lovely fabric is available in our shop.

Empty Nest? Retired? Now is Your Chance to Update Your Arizona Home Style

Have your kids recently moved out? Perhaps you are planning on retiring or you just retired recently and you have more time to yourself. Now you have time to focus on redesigning your home as you have always desired. What used to be “functional” for your home, may not be aesthetically pleasing to your new found style and updating is due.

 

Choosing a New Style


When choosing a new style, try going for designs and colors that make you relax. A popular choice among empty nesters is to use new lively fabrics on highlights and accent pieces. You don’t have to change everything in a room to update its style. A simple change in the throw pillows or the valances or cornices can change the whole atmosphere of a room.

The retro vintage style is reminiscent of the late 70s and 80s design where simple elegance your room is highlighted with splashes of color.

The color splashes used to break the flat colors of the room comes from pieces that display floral designs on a background that is similar to the color scheme of the rest of the room.

The minimalist style pairs well with homes inspired by modern architecture.

For this style, you can use monochromatic fabrics that match your walls. You can use drapes that closely match your upholstery. The usual color scheme is white, light gray, or any muted earth color. You can break the monotony by adding a vibrant accent piece.

Fabrics That Go has thousands of bolts of home fabric! We do everything from fabric supply, professional consultation, measurements, labor, to installation and delivery.

The southwestern style aims to make the interior an extension of the desert environment outside.

For accent, it utilizes mostly traditional patterns to incorporate the local culture. You can simply accent a room with these fabrics as upholstery on chairs, table runners, and placemats, or even bedding.

Popular Fabrics


Some of the most popular fabrics used to update house styles are of Claire’s own designs. Claire is the 91-year-old owner of Fabrics that go and is highly experienced in the fabrics business.

Her designs are so popular because they are a blend of contemporary and postmodern that it appeals to customers looking for bright southwest colors without leaving them with only ethnic contrasts.

 

If you drop by the store, there is a big chance you could find her there and get her expert advice.

What You Can Do


You actually don’t need to spend a fortune to update your home’s interior. You don’t have to make major changes either to change the feel and atmosphere of your home.

Your change could be as small and simple as reupholstering your kitchen chairs, or even just get matching runners and placemats in the design you want to have can do. Changing the drapes, valances and cornices in a room is often enough to update the feel of that room.

 

Get help from experts


If you can’t decide what style to update to, don’t worry. We have experts who are ready to help you choose a design for your home. With thousands of fabrics to choose from, we are bound to help you find one that is perfect for you.

Quick Guide to Upholstery Fabrics

When you bring in your furniture to Fabrics That Go for re-upholstery, the first thing you’ll need to do is to browse our massive collection of upholstery-grade fabrics. This may sound overwhelming at first, but our staff is always ready to help you pick the right one. That said, we know that picking your own fabric can be rewarding, so we put together a quick rundown on the basics. Here’s a quick guide to the upholstery fabrics you can find at Fabrics That Go.

Woven Fibers


If you’re looking for something that feels natural but durable, woven fibers should be on top of your list. Upholstery-grade cotton, linen, microfiber and canvas fabrics are also commonly used for couches and living room chairs. Woven fibers are known to be more resistant to wear and tear. True cotton velvet is just as durable, and it also adds elegance to your living space.

Synthetic Fibers


Not all synthetic fibers are created equal. While many people prefer the coziness of woven fabric, acrylic indoor & outdoor fabric has a functional appeal. 100% Acrylic fabrics like Sunbrella are stain-resistant and fade-resistant, and is also non-shrinkable. Fabrics That Go has a selection of fabrics called Performance Wear that have 50,000 to 100,000 double rubs (abrasion tests to measure durability). Kids and animals beware, this fabric is strong enough to survive high traffic.

Don't have an old piece to reupholster? Did you know, Fabrics That Go is now providing custom made furniture? You choose the fabric and style, & our expert furniture designers make you a brand new piece custom made from your vision!

Suede


Ultrasuede and poly-suede are great multi-functional, synthetic fabrics. They can be used in fashion, vehicle upholstery and interior decorating. Suede is a good pick if you’re working with large pieces of furniture. Ultrasuede is washable so you don’t have to worry about damaging the deep coloring. It’s also a great alternative to velvet you want a fabric that has a sleek finish. 

Points to Remember


When choosing the perfect upholstery fabric, there are some things you should keep in mind, aside from texture, durability and overall look. Here are a few points:

  • Tweeds and some synthetic fibers are magnets for pet hair.
  • Higher pile or thicker fabrics conceal stains.
  • Silk is delicate and can easily be marred.
  • Denim is durable, but fadeable and wears thin under active use.
  • Heavy embroidery or open stitch fabric is not ideal for large furniture.
Fabrics That Go only uses quality outdoor fabric! We do everything from fabric supply, professional consultation, measurements, labor, to installation and delivery.

Washability


Washability always comes up as a concern, however, our experienced and knowledgeable staff can guide you in taking care of your newly upholstered furniture. Sheen, loose weave, backed/flocked fabric can be dry-cleaned, and 100% acrylic outdoor fiber is bleachable. There are some fabrics that can be machine or hand washed with mild detergent, baking soda and vinegar. 

If you need to know more about how to care for your fabrics, don’t hesitate to contact Fabrics That Go.

The Ultimate Southwestern Home Decor Guide

The Sonoran Desert is in full bloom once again. You look around your Arizona home and you’re hit with the sudden urge for renewal. As you scramble to do some spring cleaning and re-decoration, you face a hard truth: It’s not that easy to keep up with changing interior design trends every year. So what should you do? Find a style you love and stick with it. When in doubt, embrace local culture. Southwestern design has a lot to offer in terms of visual appeal. It is versatile, and it can be fused with many different interior styles. To help get you started, we give you: The Ultimate Southwestern Home Decor Guide.

Desert Tones


What sets the Southwestern style from most is its use of warm tones and contrasting colors. But these colors aren’t chosen arbitrarily. As the culture is deeply rooted in symbolism, colors used represent nature. In this case, they represent the desert sand and the sky.

Shades of brown, red, and sometimes orange fabric can be used to upholster wooden furniture like accent chairs, benches and couches.

Shades of blue like azure, turquoise, cobalt, and indigo, are often used to contrast the warm, reddish tones. The key is being consistent with your palette, instead of going overboard with too many patterns and contrasting colors.

Fabrics and Patterns


Recent design trends use bold southwestern patterns to heighten an otherwise plain space. Patterned valances go well with plain drapes, for example. Suede and leather chairs with brownish tones look great with patterned throws. In the dining room, southwestern fabric can be used as table runners and as upholstery for dining chairsPatterns can also be used as decorative pieces like tapestries and living room blankets.

Decorative Pieces


Wooden furniture is a staple of southwestern design. The look is achieved through combination of different types of wood or wood grain colors. Decorative pieces can be used as functional items as well: woven baskets can be used as living room storage, and local pottery can replace the usual vases.

Fabrics That Go has the largest collection of Southwestern Fabric! Add a touch of Beautiful Southwestern culture into your home.

As extra storage and seating, patterned ottomans can also be a lovely addition to the living room.

Of course, your home wouldn't be complete without some indoor flora. Dried flowers and cacti are the usual go-to indoor plants, but plants with large, deep green leaves also fits well.

Southwestern-Contemporary Fusion


The versatility of Southwestern and desert-inspired design shines when matched with different styles. You can see these pieces used in minimalist, boho, and even rustic interior design.

Rustic or natural style furniture (rough wood cuts, driftwood, distressed wood) look excellent with patterns and desert tones.

Woven pattern rugs and carpets blend well with metal furniture used in minimalist setups.

As accent and decor, southwestern pieces blend well with almost any muted color. Southwestern design intrinsically adds a lot of flair to your home, but it can also be subtle enough to add elegance.

Custom Fabric for Your Arizona Bedroom

When it comes to decorating your bedroom, it can be daunting to find just the right pieces. Whether you’re moving into a new home, or refreshing the one you have, you should consider using custom fabric to put your own personal touch on your furniture. Here are a few things you can reupholster in your bedroom -

Headboard


If your old headboard is showing its age, you should consider having it reupholstered. Not only will this refresh the space, but you can pick out what fabric you want. The fabric choices are endless from patterned, bold, or neutral colors. An even bigger reason to have this as your first choice of redecorating is that headboards can be the focal point of a bedroom. With something this large, you wouldn’t want those missing nails in the upholstery to stand out like a sore thumb.

Pillows & Duvet Covers


Throw pillows and duvet covers are a small part in a bedroom, but can bring together the style of a room.

If you’re changing the style, or ready to simply change the fabric, this is an easy fix. The hardest part will be choosing the style and type of fabric you want.  Fabrics That Go offers various fabrics from Contemporary style to Mexican Serape, they have something for all tastes!

Curtains & Drapery


The best kind of decor is one that is functional and stylish. Curtains can sometimes be an afterthought when decorating. However, by changing or installing curtains in your home, you can make a room look bigger simply by the positioning and the length of curtains. Plus, you can have curtains that block sunlight which will in turn save on cooling costs! Tip: Tucson’s Fabrics That Go specializes in custom drapery so you don’t have to drive around looking for pre-made curtains.

Fabrics That Go is a one stop shop for drapery fabrics, tassels, rods, and other accessories. We also make custom drapery according to your needs and specifications!

Benches and Chairs


Large bedrooms sometimes have benches or chairs for lounging.

Don’t forget to replace the old fabric on these as well. These are probably the most worn out surfaces since they are constantly being used.

If you’re overwhelmed by how much work this bedroom refresh seems, the experts at Fabrics That Go can help ease the anxiety. Their store carries over 10,000 bolts of popular and unique fabric. This means upholstery is a breeze - especially since they also carry a variety of nails to choose from. To make things even easier, their experts can recommend fabric, give advice as well as offer you their full service upholstery!

Elegant Velvet Drapery

Utilizing velvet for drapery has been a classic choice exemplifying complex character to confer elegance and sophistication. Instantly transform any room with the velvet fabric to match to motif of your home.
