Before you start shopping for fabrics there are a few things you might like to know.

Types of Fabric

Specific Fabrics are recommended for different types of upholstery.

How do I select which fabric is best for me? 

Selecting a fabric will depend on your style, tastes and needs. The best way to select a fabric is to browse through furniture shops and look at the different colours and textures available. If you find a fabric that you like, write down the manufacturer’s name, as well as the fabric name and colour and compare our prices. 

Our website has a large range of photos featuring various fabrics. Remember that photos are an indication of the colour and texture only.

If you see a fabric that you like please phone 02 6555 7436 or email us at enquiries@fabricsupplies.com.au and we will organise a sample to be posted to you. (limit 3 per customer). You can purchase any fabric that appears within the price lists (even if there is no photo available).

How Much Fabric do I need?

Here is a range of  lounge suite styles and chairs to help you calculate the amount of fabric that you will need. Each calculation is based on a fabric that is 140cm wide and pattern repeats up to 64cm.

These are approximate estimations only. Remember that furniture sizes may vary. Large patterns need to be centred on the chair or lounge therefore requires more meterage.

Please keep in mind that the amounts of fabric below are an indication only, your job may need more fabric depending on width of fabric and pattern.
Ask our expert upholsterers to quote your job accurately.
