Soft And Comfortable Chenille Sofas
Choosing sofas is not easy. Not only must you take into account the style and comfort of the design, but its durability as well. As far as durability concerns specifically, chenille sofas plays a very large part. Chenille sofas offers a fuzzy, velvety texture that is as aesthetically pleasing to the eyes as as it is soft to the touch. Chenille upholstery is created from a yarn that has a raised, textured surface, which is known as pile. The more tightly woven piles are inherently stronger than their loosely woven counterparts, resulting in a more durable sofa. The nap should run toward the front of a chenille sofa’s seat cushions and downward on the back cushions to align with your body when you get up or sit down. If the nap is running in the right direction, the chenille upholstery will wear better and last longer on your sofas.
You can lengthen the life of your chenille sofas by taking proper care of the upholstery. Vacuum your couch periodically to prevent dust and debris from building up between the raised woven fibers. Use a soft brush to lightly brush the nap to keep it feeling soft and looking good. Avoid using water on chenille, as it tends to flatten the plush pile. Rotate and flip your sofa cushions periodically to prevent uneven wear on the chenille upholstery. Call on professional upholstery cleaners to occasionally clean your chenille couch to maximize its useful lifespan.
