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.

Creating the Perfect Arizona Backyard

It may not seem like it, but spring is just around the corner. With spring comes warmer weather - and with the temperature rising, what better way to enjoy it than to relax outside in your backyard? Here are a few tips and tricks to create the perfect backyard:

 

Garden


One step in creating the perfect oasis is to garden. Whether you’re planting flowers, bushes, or vegetables, make sure you plan for the right plants for the season! It may take more time than you can bear to wait, but consider planting a tree. When it grows, it will provide natural shade and cooler temperatures in your backyard.

Update Your Patio Furniture


You can replace your old patio furniture completely, or you can reupholster what you already have using the same fabric as your umbrella. Fabrics That Go offers full service upholstery and can order Sunbrella fabric to arrive in just a few days. Hot tip: Sunbrella fabric doesn’t need to be used solely outside - it’s great for indoor furniture as it cleans up easily for both spills and homes with pets!

Replace Your Umbrella


If you don’t want to wait for a tree to grow to give off natural shade, purchase a patio umbrella or replace the torn fabric on an old one! When looking to replace old umbrella fabric, make sure you choose the right one. It needs to be water resistant and not fade easily in the sun. Consider using Sunbrella fabric - famous for its durability and wide range of colors available. You can find this fabric at your Tucson’s own Fabrics That Go!

Install An Awning


Another shade solution is to install an awning. There are many options to choose from, but remember, you don’t have to replace the whole awning if just the fabric is torn. If you find your current or future awning fabric has not held up, replace it with Fabrics That Go. They will remove, measure and install for you!

Once you have made all these updates to your home, relax in your new (or feels like new) furniture under the shade of your umbrella or awning. Remember to thank Fabrics That Go for making your life easier and your home feel refreshed and renewed!

Fabrics That Go is a one stop shop for all your upholstery needs, from indoor to outdoor furniture! Our staff is skilled in custom upholstery and will work according to your needs and specifications!

Different Types of Drapery for Your Arizona Home

If you have just moved into a new home or you’re looking to update your current living space, one thing you should remember to do is to put up curtains or drapery. Not only does it help block out the sunlight, but it can bring together your decor and help you save on cooling/heating costs! Here are a few different types of drapery for your Arizona home.

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!

Sheer Curtains


Are you looking for more of an aesthetic than functionality? Pick up sheer curtains to stay on trend! They come in several colors, but are usually solid color instead of patterned. While they won’t block sunlight, they will typically block most of the view of your home from the outside. Styles that work best with this type of curtain is something like shabby chic.

Blackout Curtains


These are most used in windows that get a lot of sunlight throughout the day. They block both the light and the heat from coming into your home. This means you can save on cooling costs! The downside is that you can’t always find them appealing to the eye. Fabrics That Go can help guide you along the way and suggest good fabric for this project.

Grommet


When you see curtains, more than likely, these are the ones you see. They are most popular due to their simple design and are signified by the rings at the top, which make it easy to open and close these curtains.

The fabric used is usually light to medium weight.

Rod Pocket


These type of curtains have a pocket sewn in on the top for the rod to go into. The fabric typically used here is lightweight.

Fabrics That Go has many different fabric weights and colors for you to choose from. 

Tab Top


Classified by the loops seen at the top for the curtain rod, they are usually not used for windows whose curtains need to be opened consistently. When using this type of curtain, you'll find that it can be difficult to open and close them. 

Look no further than Fabrics That Go for all your fabric needs. They're always stocked up on rare and unique fabrics from around the world and have everything you would need for any home fabric project - like foam, cushion, nails, rods and more!

Elegant Velvet Drapery

Cleaning/Replacing Curtains


If redoing your walls seems like too much work, you can wash your curtains. Check the fabric to see how best to clean them before throwing it in the wash. Doing this can make your home feel refreshed as curtains can collect dust and dirt throughout the year. If you want more change, replace your curtains with a new pattern or color.

Update Furniture


With all the hosting you’ve done during the holidays, the fabric on your furniture may have seen its last days.

Classic Drapery Picks For A Luxurious Home

If you’re trying to pick out drapery for your windows, but you want it to look less like a college dorm and more like a home from a design magazine, think about using one of the following types of drapery.

SHEER


Sheer drapery will obviously not block any sunlight from the rooms it is used in, but they will bring in a sense of elegance.

They will also filter in soft sunlight and looks great in every home.

PATTERNS


Patterned curtains give rooms more character and can make small rooms feel airy.

Patterned curtains can complement other patterns used in the room or be a focal point of the room that it’s used in.  

BOLD COLORS


Using bold colors with curtains can turn a neutral room more fun and interesting. Bold colored curtains can also define a room.

If you live in a loft, it can separate the living spaces while also livening up the room.

While looking for the perfect drapery, keep in mind that the simpler the drapery, the more likely it is to match the rest of the decor in your home. You will also want to keep in mind the type of fabric you’re using. Linen and cotton can be lighter weight and block less sunlight out. Velvet gives it a more luxurious feel.

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.

Welcome Your Family For Thanksgiving With These Decorating Tips

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you’ll want to make sure that your home is decorated in a way that makes your home cozy and ready to welcome the family. Here are a few tips to get your home holiday ready.

TABLE RUNNER OR TABLE CLOTH


The best way to begin decorating is by starting with the base of your table - table cloths and/or table runners. This is an easy way to spruce up an older table, especially if your table is showing signs of wear. If you can’t find the right pattern or color to match your home, this is a simple DIY project that doesn’t require a lot of sewing! Once you’ve laid down your runner or tablecloth, add some pumpkins or greenery to get in the festive spirit.

Add some Arizona Flavor by choosing Southwestern fabrics! Shop at Fabrics That Go and get 10-50% off thousands of fabrics! Southwestern & Outdoor Included!

DINNER NAPKINS


You don’t have to be skilled at folding napkins to make your table look elegant. A simple fold with decorative touches make it look just as nice! Think about tucking the silverware into the napkin to keep everything in one spot, or tie the napkin with twine and greenery to match the rest of the decor on the table. You can also add a name tag on top of the napkins to give it a personalized touch.

COZY THROWS & PILLOWS


Make sure to have plenty of comfy pillows & throw blankets around for when the weather cools down and the family begins to get chilly.

Choose neutral fabric for simplistic style, or get adventurous and pick a unique pattern to make a statement. Come in to Fabrics That Go for any style!

All of these decor ideas can be purchased at many home decor stores, but you can accomplish a more unique and customized home just as easily with a little time and a little bit of sewing.

Decorating Your Home For Halloween

When the weather starts to cool down and the kids are back in school, you know Halloween is not too far. To get in the proper spooky spirit, here are some tips on how to decorate your home for Halloween!

PUMPKIN PARTY


The best way to get into the spirit of Halloween is to decorate your home with pumpkins.

Whether that’s artificial pumpkins, or you gather the family to carve real pumpkins, nothing says fall and Halloween quite like decorating with pumpkins!

SCARY SPIDERS


Typically most people try to get rid of the spiders in their home. Halloween time calls for plenty of scary spiders and creepy crawlers. From tiny plastic spiders to a life size version, you can never go wrong when decorating your home with spiders and their webs. Try a DIY project to make your own spiders (maybe even some friendly ones). Don’t forget to pick up fuzzy fabric to really bring out a tarantula’s form!

SPOOKY SPELL BOOKS


Boil, boil, toil and trouble. When your witchy instincts kick in, you’ll want to make sure your home is Halloween complete with spell books. This DIY project is a breeze. Buy some leather fabric, distress and antique it, then cover an old book. Stack your spellbooks with some potion bottles (hint: wine bottles give it an adult spin) and you’re ready to put a spell on your next guest.

CREEPY CLOTHS


Bring your decor together in the fabrics most easily changed - pillows, tablecloths, and napkins! These three cloth items live in everyone’s house and if you just want a touch of Halloween, what better way than to change this out in your home? They can be found in many stores, however these are also easy DIY projects. Find frightening fabrics and know that doing all three of these requires minimal sewing skills. Check out this DIY from HGTV for petrifying pillow inspiration.

Whether you’re making fuzzy spiders, authentic spell books, or decorating your home more inconspicuously with pillows and tablecloths, the fact of the matter is that you’re going to be searching for fabrics to pull off these DIY projects. Fabrics That Go has the ghoulish fabrics you need for this haunted holiday. They carry rare buttons along with 10,000+ fabrics to choose from! With 74 years in business, Fabrics That Go has experts that can give advice on many DIY projects - including those paralyzing pillows you’ll want to make.

Using Patterns To Bring Personality To Your Arizona Home

When it comes to decorating your home, there are many places you can start. Some begin with finding cool knick-knacks, while others stick to throw pillows and curtains. However you start, just make sure it represents your personality! One easy way to do this is by using patterns in your decor. Here are a few ways to incorporate chic, quirky, or simple patterns -

BEDDING


When picking out bedding, some may stick to solid colors. If you’re trying to make your bedrooms look like a hotel, then a solid color may be your number one choice. To be more bold, have fun and pick out a pattern like chevron stripes, polka dots, or even something moroccan/southwestern inspired!

PILLOWS


Throw pillows are always fun to pick out. They can change with the season or change with your mood! There are quirky pillows with animals on it, or simple striped pillows that match most decor in most homes. Whatever you decide, make sure it’s something that screams you. If you can’t find the exact pattern you’re looking for, don’t forget that a throw pillow case is an easy and simple DIY that anyone can jump into.

CURTAINS


If you’re looking to add shade in your home while also giving it a subtle pop of personality, try looking to patterned curtains. When shopping for patterns here, it’s usually safer to stick to simple patterns such as stripes or textured fabric so as to not overpower the rest of the decor in your home. Curtains are also an easy DIY project. There are many tutorials online - some don’t even require you to sew!  

UPHOLSTERY


If you’re looking for a bigger, louder way to show who you are, why not pick a pattern for your upholstery? Whether that’s a couch or a chair, it’s another way to incorporate patterns into your home. The only tough part is that you may not find the right pattern to fit your home. If you find yourself running into this problem, this is another DIY project you can tackle. However, it is a little more advanced than making a pillowcase or curtain.

Should you feel intimidated by the prospect of reupholstering an entire piece of furniture, look for a company that can do it for you.

Tucson-based company, Fabrics That Go, is a one stop shop for this.

They carry over 10,000 bolts of fabric to choose from where you’re sure to find the right pattern, and they even have their own reupholstery service for those who aren’t interested in doing it themselves!

Fabrics That Go is a family-owned company run by a mother-son duo. They have been a part of Tucson community for 74 years and going strong! Their knowledge in fabrics and DIY projects make them and their employees experts and are more than welcome to give advice on your future projects.
