Some sofa fabrics are associated with a specific sofa shape, such as faux leather or genuine leather upholstery, while others, such as linen or cotton, are often found in looser, more relaxed sofa styles. Luxurious fabrics such as velvet give the space an upscale vibe and are suitable for most sofa shapes.

If you prefer to use natural fabrics rather than synthetic fabrics in your home, then cotton or linen fabrics will be your best option. Compared to some synthetic materials, these materials have the advantage of being extremely durable, while being more sustainable and healthier for your home.

Linen fabrics are great for upholstery projects because they are tough yet soft. They're also machine washable and are great for upholstering loose coverings on sofas in high-traffic rooms or areas with pet hair and children. Natural fibers such as flax are stain-resistant thanks to their inherent stain-resistant properties. Synthetic materials such as polyester fabrics have a fairly long abrasion resistance, depending on the quality of the fabric, but they generally don't feel as comfortable on the skin as natural fabrics. They're generally less expensive, so if you're on a tight budget, this might be a good option. But they usually don't last as long as linen fabrics, which means they can cost more in the long run. Acrylic fabrics tend to have good color fastness, so they won't leave marks on cushions or clothing. But it can pill up quickly and look shabby. Semi-synthetic fabrics offer the best of both worlds but check the percentages of their ingredients.
