Performance Fabric: Why it’s Worth the Investment

Why invest in stunning furniture if you’re hesitant to use it? Often, in the pursuit of creating aesthetically pleasing spaces, we prioritize beauty over functionality. Fortunately, with performance fabric, you can have the best of both worlds!

Over the years, upholstery fabrics have undergone significant advancements, offering homeowners the ability to maintain the pristine appearance of their furniture for an extended duration. If you aspire to fully enjoy every corner of your home without the constant worry of spills, stains, and wear and tear, this guide is tailored just for you.

What is Performance Fabric?

Performance fabric, distributed by Leon’s Fabrics is sure to endure wear and simplify cleaning. Outdoor furniture has benefited greatly from these advancements in fabrics. Designated performance outdoor fabrics can withstand harsh weather conditions and UV rays. Indoor furniture can also benefit from performance fabrics. With kids, pets, or a large family, maintaining clean and pristine furniture can be challenging. Performance fabric provides durability and stain resistance, making it perfect for high-traffic areas in your home. While not all performance fabrics are suitable for indoor and outdoor use, many mills have now blurred the lines in where fabrics can be placed. Many performance fabrics now can be used in both environments, without fear of the fabric failing.

The Benefits of Performance Fabric

Clean and Polished Look

If your household frequently hosts gatherings or has a large family, your furniture may endure considerable wear and tear during these periods. If this scenario resonates with you, your furniture could greatly benefit from performance fabrics. Most of these fabrics have high double rub counts and can withstand daily use without concerns for wear. Not only do these fabrics have high double rub counts they also maintain their color and overall appearance for longer periods of time. They are also easy to clean, alleviating concerns about stains that could detract from the beauty of your cherished furniture pieces.

Less Susceptible to Color Fading

One of the less enjoyable aspects of outdoor furniture ownership is witnessing your beloved pieces lose their vibrant color over time. At Leon’s Fabrics, we look for the lightfastness test to ensure our fabric remains bright and vibrant for years. In essence, this test assesses the fabric’s resistance to sunlight. Our outdoor performance fabrics surpass the highest standards, ensuring many years of use.

Many Styles

Certain materials can limit your options when it comes to finding the perfect fit for your needs.

Performance fabrics, on the other hand, are starting to stand out because of their versatility. Many of these fabrics can be transformed into a vast array of designs, patterns, and textures.  Some of these fabrics are even suitable for both indoor and outdoor furniture, bridging the gap between indoor and outdoor living.

You can rest easy knowing that it will perform day in and day out for many years to come without fail.
