Busted - Don't Believe These Furniture Upholstery Myths.jpg

Furniture has become an integral part of our lives and has added to the comfort levels in our homes. Let’s face it, there is no better feeling than being able to sink into an armchair once you’re back home from a tiring day at work. However, picking the right furniture and upholstery is crucial to enjoying the benefits of comfortable furniture.

Unfortunately, when it comes to selecting furniture, its upkeep, and maintenance, numerous falsehoods and misconceptions plague the industry. Without the right information, clients fall for these myths and end up making the wrong choices.

To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, ViVi Upholstery Inc. has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about furniture and upholstery.

Myth 1: Genuine and bonded leather is the same.

With the advent of technology, identifying bonded leather from genuine leather is pretty tricky, however, there are stark differences between both materials. Genuine leather is usually more expensive than bonded leather. Often, we get complaint calls from customers stating that their furniture peels off in two to five years, which is usually because they have been using bonded leather which tears faster than genuine leather.

Myth 2: Patterns and prints are interchangeable.

Customers often get confused between patterns and prints. A printed fabric is actually different from a woven pattern. Therefore, you should opt for fabric which will suit your furniture and your space which makes it essential to know whether patterned upholstery or printed upholstery will better match your home. In most cases, trying to use them interchangeably may not provide great aesthetic appeal.

Myth 3: Custom furniture is too expensive.

While custom furniture may be costlier than commercial furniture, it is not necessarily expensive as you are buying something that has excellent quality and is customized to suit your unique needs. Most furniture at retail stores may be made on a large scale and might lack good quality upholstery which can be avoided if you decide on custom furniture, which makes choosing custom furniture a more economical choice.
