Building 101: Choosing the Right Textiles for Your Home (Part 1)
What fabric goes with which room? RL's interior designers give pro secrets
The living room is one of the most public areas in your house, and your fabrics should be able to withstand the heavy traffic of people, as well as the wear-and- tear from daily sittings, kids, and even pets. So choose heavy gauge fabrics for upholstery, such as heavy damask, canvas, chenille, tweed, and brush twill for sofas and armchairs. Lighter fabrics such as cotton chintz or even silk can be used for more delicate furniture pieces that don’t get used often, like occasional chairs and side chairs.
