Clients these days are looking for fabrics for interiors that stand up to kids, dogs, and all kinds of every day living. People want stain resistance, durability, and they want their upholstery fabrics to feel and look good!
I'm loving how technology is seeping into design to make products more durable. Crypton fabrics are great options for upholstery and we have more and more choices available to us as time goes on. I'm hoping/predicting that we'll see even more options coming out next year.
I remember when Crypton fabrics were first introduced years ago. The fabric was stiff and there was a very limited selection, mostly solids.
Now, the fabrics have a luxurious hand and there are many more options that make them a good design choice for our projects. Even well known blogger, Justina Blakeney, has her own line of Crypton fabrics now. She is known for her tropical boho look.
Take a look at how we've used crypton fabrics recently.
Especially if you are wanting light colored upholstery, Crypton is a good pick for durability and stain resistance.
Don't want to deal with a designer to get some Crypton in your home?
I've got some links to furniture upholstered in Crypton treated fabrics from some online vendors. I always suggest getting samples or cutting of upholstery fabrics, because colors aren't always represented well on screen. Then, you can test the fabric yourself for stain resistance.
