Top 10 Fabrics for the Cleanable Family

Top 10 Fabrics for the
Cleanable Family

When selecting a fabric for your home there are so many things to think about. Is it a high traffic room? Do you plan on eating in the space? Is this your central gathering space? Do you have children or pets? The list goes on and on. For any family these questions are a great jumping off point. Always better safe than sorry when it comes to fabric clean-ability.
Start by looking for a fabric with a cleanable synthetic fiber that is spot cleanable, non absorbent, tight woven; and has a high rub count.  Our go to and most popular fabric fiber selection is polyester. Polyester is an inherently cleanable fabric with all of these qualities. It stands up to families’ everyday living with ease.
If you need a step up in clean-ability you can always look for indoor/outdoor fabrics. These fabrics are at a higher price point, but go the extra mile. Some of these fabrics are so cleanable liquids simply bead off.
Look for fabrics with variation, highs and lows, or a slight pattern. This adds visual interest which also helps with hiding surface dirt and dander.
Finally, there is color selection. Choosing the right color for your home and family is very important. You want to find a fabric that compliments your wall color, accent furniture, and d├ęcor. Keep in mind that the lighter the fabric the easier it is to see surface dirt and dander.

Check out our Top 10 fabric selections for your cleanable family!

Meet, March!

Meet, March!

“March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.” - Kahlil Gibran

March is upon us as winter starts to lose its hold, and a new season of life begins. 

A time of year when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.March symbolically represents the new growth of spring and the continuation of life. 

At Sofa Outlet we are celebrating March all month long by introducing our new style: March.  

This benchmade urban modern charmer is made in the USA, and starts at $699 all month long in select fabrics and dimensions.

We also have 100+ other spring styles starting at $999 and under all month long. 

Stop by our showroom at 25 west 43rd Ave. San Mateo, Ca 94403 or visit our website at SofaOutlet.Com to browse 1,000’s of style combinations all customizable to meet your specific spring desires; before the madness of March begins!
