Velvet is a soft, extravagant and comfortable fabric that lends itself elegantly to the cushioning of the sofa. Velvet has a very special glow and warmth and the inviting and exclusive expression will add to your sofa just that extra.

The velvet is 100% polyester, which is generally a durable material and easy to maintain. Due to the small fibers in the material, the fabric will change color in the surface as the light strikes it from different directions. This is not a mistake, but merely adds character to the fabric.

Maintenance

For maintenance, regular vacuum cleaning with a furniture brush is recommended. Always brush in the direction of the fabric texture and do not rub too hard as it may force pilling on the fabric.

For stain removal, it is recommended to dab with cold water and a mild transparent soap mixture. Give the soap time to work before removing it again.

If you experience pressure marks in the velvet (where the fibers in the fabric have settled) from either transport or in use, this is common for velvet and should not be considered a defect.

If you want to recreate the original texture of the velvet, it is recommended to moisten a white piece of fabric with warm water and apply it to the print mark in the fabric for about an hour. You can also use a soft brush with distilled water, but avoid using too much water. Again, avoid rubbing too much on the fabric and don’t use the couch before the fabric is completely dry.

 

Our recommendation

As a rule of thumb, fabrics made of synthetic fibers and light colors will fade the least in direct sunlight. If you are therefore looking for a sofa to be placed somewhere with very direct sunlight, we recommend polyester rather than fabrics made from natural fibers. In addition, choose fabric with a light fastness above 4.

The durability of our fabrics ranges from 25,000 to up to 100,000 Martindale. For severe wear, the wear resistance should be above 20,000, but for normal daily use a minimum wear resistance of 10,000 is recommended.
