Dining Room Trends: Top 5 Chair Upholstery Fabrics

The Best Chair Upholstery Fabrics to Enhance Your Dining Experience

When it comes to elevating a dining room’s design, style and function don’t mean much if you don’t have the right chair upholstery fabrics.

Whether you prioritize style or practicality or both, let’s take a look at our favorite designs and materials to help you pin down the best choice.

Leather and Vinyl

For an elegant and modern take on your dining area, leather is a great choice.

Make sure to choose the kind that can be wiped clean, avoiding the suede type that’s prone to stain and dirt. If you’re looking to get the same luxurious feel of leather without having to shell out the big bucks, go for leather-like vinyl. It’s a cost-effective option that’s easy to clean and can resist wear and tear.

Cotton Chairs for outdoor entertainment area

Cotton Blend

There’s nothing quite like the soft and breathable feel of cotton fabric in your furniture, made even better when blended with synthetic fabrics. For instance, adding polyester to cotton fabric is a great way to make your furniture more fade-, spill-, wrinkle-, and abrasion-resistant.

If you wish to add a little color and some authenticity to your dining space, cotton blend Southwestern fabric is the perfect route for you.

Performance Fabrics

When it comes to stains and spills, there are three chair fabrics that really stand out from the crowd: Crypton, Sunbrella, and Perennials. These materials offer excellent protection against the messiest of mishaps.

These are perfect chair upholstery fabrics for a family with kids and pets.


Due to its luxurious soft feel, this fabric is the way to go for formal settings.

Nevertheless, it can also be great for a casual space adding texture and depth.

Despite its texture, it’s very easy to clean, stain-resistant, and durable.

Tip: Keep velvet chairs away from direct sunlight, pets, and dusty areas.

Satin Brocade

There’s nothing quite like the timeless elegance of satin brocade fabrics. Whether it’s used to upholster furniture, as a full covering for pieces of furniture, or even just as a few throw pillows — it can instantly transform any setting into something truly sophisticated.

Now if you’re ready to tackle your next dining room project, always think durability, ease of maintenance, and aesthetic values.
