Quality Fabrics for Home FurnishingsAnthony Cowie
Always buy the best you can afford. Try to manage with a few good quality items to start with and then expand later.
If you cannot afford to buy an expensive fabric then buy a more affordable material and have it made up really well. A cheaper fabric can look very much more impressive if it has been quilted. A quilted cushion will always look expensive and will crease less easily. You could even consider quilting a larger expanse of fabric for curtains or use a quilted upholstery fabric on a small chair or stool for extra effect.
Aim to have your home feeling welcoming and comfortable. Pile cushions on a sofa, and add a woolen throw to make the room feel inviting. If everything is new then you will miss out on having a few faded and well-worn items that perhaps have happy memories or are of sentimental value.
TOP TIP: Mix a very good quality item with something simple or ordinary for contrast.
