Top Cover & Finishing

With all upholstery foundations in place, applying the top cover and finishing is the final and most satisfying process.

Applying the top cover makes all the hard work worthwhile. To see a piece of furniture take shape and come to life gives our upholsterers tremendous satisfaction.

What really makes furniture come alive is the choice of fabric and finishes. One of the major advantages of dealing with Plumbs is that we have a range of over 800 upholstery weight fabrics and colour options to choose from.

You need to consider a number of key factors when choosing your new fabric. Firstly, how your choice of colours will coordinate with the surrounding décor. Think about the shape and features of the furniture; is it elegant, heavyset, small or tall? Does it have show wood? All these factors have an impact when deciding whether to choose plain, textured, patterned or floral fabrics.

How the furniture is used should also be considered. Is it an everyday or just occasional piece? Occasional chairs, for example, are often regarded as being more decorative than practical, so delicate silks or suede’s would suit. On frequently used furniture more robust fabrics would be a better choice.
