Fabric Chair


Looking to redo your living room? One way to make the space look stylish and modern is by choosing the right fabrics for your chairs. You want to look for materials that are durable, easy to maintain yet look smart. The upholstery materials for chairs can be broadly classified into natural and synthetic materials.

These are woven from natural materials like plant fibres or animal based products. The best part about natural fabrics is that they are breathable materials and are very comfortable to use. Farsh provides you the best quality fabric chair for your living room.

One of the most important decisions you can make when deciding to buy custom upholstery is what fabric to choose.

People are often attracted to a particular upholstery fabric because of its colour or pattern. It is important to remember the different characteristics of the fibres that comprise the various fabrics.

Our sales consultants will guide you in the right direction towards finding the right solutions to meet your particular requirements. While all fabrics showcased have been approved for use for upholstery, not all the fabrics are appropriate for your particular needs.

We are very well supported by the leading fabric houses such as Warwick, Zepel, Wortley, Mokum and many others. Here you can find the best fabrics from Australia and around the world. We also source quality leather from reputable suppliers like Leather Italia and N.S.W. Leather. You should be able to find something to suit your taste and budget.


Our experience tells us that price point does not always directly reflect durability. Pricing often reflects only the cost to create the fabric (i.e. design, material used and country of origin etc.), but often has nothing to do with durability. In general, natural fibres are more costly to produce than synthetics; and woven patterns are more costly than plain weaves. The dyeing and looming process of a fabric also influence the price of a fabric.


One of the most important qualities of upholstery fabric is its wearability. Each fabric will have a use-rating, namely: domestic, heavy domestic, commercial, etc.

The Martindale Test is also widely used in Australia and Europe for testing upholstery fabrics. A high Martindale rating simply means that the fabric has undergone abrasion testing and has endured a certain amount of rubs to warrant its rating.

While only part of the story, the abrasion rating can be important when choosing a fabric for furniture which will endure a great deal of wear, such as a highly used family room.
