With today’s active lifestyle, your upholstery serves many purposes. Kids and parents alike watch TV, play video games, tweet and text, eat, drink, lounge, even sleep on the sofa or chair – add pets and friends, too! Along with this lifestyle comes the hazard of stains and soil. As a result, many upholstery manufacturers turned to “micro type fibers”, slip covers, bonded leathers and such, only to find that the trade off in comfort, styling, and appearance was a sacrifice they quickly came to regret.
