- Cotton is widely used, versatile, and economical. It does soil easily, so consider having your cotton furniture treated with a soil protector.
- Linen us not widely used as an upholstered fabric because it tends to wrinkle, but it is seen in prints and contemporary fabrics.
- Silk is luxurious but relatively fragile. Silk can be long-wearing but is not a good choice for high-traffic homes.
- Wool is versatile and a high-quality, good-wearing fabric that cleans and wears well. It is often blended with other fabrics to increase the design opportunities.
