Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Parker Knoll Upholstery

Before we get to the exciting part of browsing through all of the different Parker Knoll fabrics and leathers available, there are a few things you should first consider.

Durability & Location

Choosing the right upholstery fabric for your Parker Knoll furniture involves considering various factors, including durability and location. If you have kids or pets, it's best to go for a durable fabric that can withstand wear and tear.

Similarly, if you plan on placing your sofa in a high-traffic area like the living room or family room, consider fabrics resistant to stains and spills.

On the other hand, if you're looking for fabrics for occasional chairs placed in a bedroom or guest room where there's less traffic, you may opt for more delicate fabrics such as velvet.

Overall, determining the location of your furniture piece will help guide you towards choosing the appropriate material with optimal durability and function.

Style & Aesthetics

Your upholstery's style and aesthetics play a crucial role in deciding the overall look of your sofa. Parker Knoll offers an extensive range of fabrics that cater to different styles, from contemporary to traditional.

The Classic Collection features timeless patterns like checks and stripes, perfect for adding a touch of sophistication to any interior. At the same time, the Lifestyle Collection offers modern designs with clean lines and neutral palettes.

When choosing your fabric, consider your room's existing decor and colour scheme for a cohesive look. You can also complement or contrast the fabric by selecting coordinating scatter cushions or contrasting piping and buttons for an added flair of personalisation.

Colour & Pattern

When choosing a Parker Knoll fabric, colour and pattern are also crucial factors to consider. The right choice of colours and patterns can transform your furniture and elevate the look of your entire room.

If you prefer a more classic aesthetic, neutral colours like beige, grey or white might be perfect for you.

Plenty of options are available in terms of patterns, ranging from plain fabrics to traditional checks and florals. A popular trend is mixing patterns through scatter cushions or contrasting piping on your sofa or armchair.

Just make sure that the patterns complement each other well in terms of scale and colour matching.

Texture & Comfort

The texture and comfort of your Parker Knoll fabric are essential considerations when choosing upholstery. Texture affects how a sofa feels to the touch, while comfort depends on the density of the cushion filling.

For example, wool and linen fabrics offer an alluringly smooth finish, yet cotton is both soft and hard-wearing due to its tight weave. Synthetic fabrics such as polyester and nylon have improved in quality throughout recent years; they are now appealing alternatives for anyone looking for durability without compromising aesthetics.

Ultimately it would be best to choose upholstery that is both comfortable to sit on whilst maintaining texture integrity through use over time. Parker Knoll offers a range of seat interiors, including foam upgrades or feather-wrapped seat cushions that help create tailored sitting experiences suited to individual preferences while also providing furniture with longevity.

Understanding Parker Knoll Fabrics

Parker Knoll fabrics are available in natural and synthetic fibres, with options including cotton, linen, wool, silk, polyester, nylon and rayon.

Types of Fabrics

Diving into the world of Parker Knoll fabrics can be an exciting adventure. As you’ve seen above, there are many options for you to choose from, catering to your personal taste and lifestyle requirements.

Natural fibres such as cotton, linen, wool and silk bring timeless elegance to any piece of furniture. For instance, cotton is known for its breathability and comfort, while linen offers unparalleled durability – perfect for a busy family home.

On the other hand, synthetic materials like polyester, nylon and rayon offer excellent resistance against stains and hold up well under rigorous use. This makes them ideal choices if you require low-maintenance upholstery that retains its beauty over time.

Natural Fibres: Cotton, Linen, Wool, Silk

Exploring natural fibres such as cotton, linen, wool and silk can help you find the perfect Parker Knoll fabric for your luxury furniture. These materials have unique properties that make them ideal upholstery options:

  1. Cotton: Breathable and soft, cotton is a versatile choice for upholstery fabrics. With its natural resistance to fading and wear, it's an excellent option for Parker Knoll chairs and sofas that will see daily use.
  2. Linen: Renowned for its durability and longevity, linen is a strong yet lightweight fabric that offers a timeless appeal. It's ideal for creating an elegant look in your living space while providing long-lasting comfort.
  3. Wool: Known for its insulating properties, wool is a resilient and flexible material that adds warmth to any interior space. Its ability to resist wrinkles and maintain shape makes it a popular choice for Parker Knoll furniture.
  4. Silk: Luxurious and delicate, silk offers unparalleled elegance when used as an upholstery fabric on select Parker Knoll pieces. While not as durable as other natural fibres, silk provides unmatched refinement in your home.

As you choose the right fabric for your Parker Knoll sofa or chair, consider these natural fibre options alongside synthetic choices to find the perfect balance of durability, aesthetics and comfort suited to your needs.

Synthetic Fibres: Polyester, Nylon, Rayon

Synthetic fibres have become increasingly popular in luxury furniture upholstery, offering a balance of durability, style and affordability. Among the top choices for Parker Knoll sofas and chairs are polyester, nylon and rayon. Here's a breakdown of these popular synthetic fabric options:

  1. Polyester: Known for its excellent strength and resilience, polyester is a popular choice for luxurious Parker Knoll furniture. It's resistant to wrinkling, shrinking, stretching and mildew growth. As a bonus, it is available in various colours and patterns to suit any décor.
  2. Nylon: A lightweight yet strong fabric option perfect for busy households with kids or pets. Nylon is known for being durable and abrasion-resistant while maintaining its soft texture. It's also easy to clean – making it an ideal choice for Parker Knoll sofas or chairs that see frequent use.
  3. Rayon: Often used as a silk alternative due to its smooth texture and lustrous appearance, rayon offers an elegant option for your Parker Knoll upholstery. Aside from looking luxurious, rayon boasts great drapeability and is surprisingly breathable. Its natural sheen adds a touch of sophistication to any room.

Synthetic fibres such as polyester, nylon and rayon provide fantastic options when choosing fabrics for your Parker Knoll furniture upholstery. Ensuring both aesthetic appeal and lasting durability that discerning shoppers appreciate in their luxury furniture selections.

Understanding Parker Knoll Leathers

The Parker Knoll Leather Collection offers a range of high-quality leather options, each with its unique texture and style that will enhance the look of any room. Discover the pros and cons of leather upholstery and learn how to select the right one for your needs.

Types of Leather

Parker Knoll offers a variety of high-quality leathers to choose from for your furniture. Here are some of the most popular types:

  1. Aniline Leather: This type of leather is the most natural and beautiful, as it shows off the unique grain and markings of each hide. It is dyed with transparent dyes that allow the natural character to show through.
  2. Semi-Aniline Leather: This type of leather is slightly more durable than aniline, as it has a light-pigmented coating that helps protect against stains and scratches while maintaining its softness.
  3. Corrected Grain Leather: This type of leather is buffed to remove any imperfections before being coated with a pigmented finish. It has a more uniform appearance than aniline or semi-aniline leather but is less natural-looking.
  4. Pull-up Leather: This type of leather has a distinctive distressed look that develops over time as it stretches and creases with use. It is treated with oil or wax to give it a soft feel and enhance its vintage look.
  5. Nubuck Leather: This type of leather is similar to suede but made from the top grain instead of the underside of the hide. It has a velvety texture and is often used on high-end furniture for its luxurious feel.

Whatever your preference, Parker Knoll offers top-of-the-line leathers sure to suit your style and needs, whether you're looking for durability or luxury.

Pros & Cons of Leather

Leather upholstery is a popular choice for luxurious furniture, offering your home a high-end look and feel. However, there are pros and cons when choosing leather for your Parker Knoll furniture. Below are the pros and cons of leather upholstery to help you make an informed decision.

Pros

Cons

High-end, luxurious appearance

More expensive than fabric options

Durable and long-lasting

May show scratches or marks more easily, especially in lighter colours

Easy to clean and maintain

Can feel cold in winter and sticky in summer

Can be stain-resistant

Not always the best option for households with pets or children

Limited colour and pattern options as compared to fabric

Despite the cons, many homeowners still prefer leather for their Parker Knoll furniture due to its undeniable elegance and luxurious feel. Ultimately, the choice between leather and fabric depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle and budget.

Choosing The Right Leather For Your Parker Knoll Sofa

Selecting the perfect leather for your Parker Knoll sofa can be tricky. With so many options, you'll want to ensure that you make the right choice.

The first thing to consider is the type of leather you want. Aniline leather, which has a natural look and feel, is an excellent choice for those who appreciate high quality and durability.

Another factor to consider when choosing your Parker Knoll sofa's leather is its colour and finish. Deep burgundy shades add warmth and elegance to your living room, whilst lighter hues can help create a brighter atmosphere in any space.

No matter what type of leather you decide on, protecting it from direct sunlight as much as possible is crucial.

Customising Your Upholstery

Make your Parker Knoll sofa unique by adding contrasting piping and buttons, coordinating scatter cushions or complementary footstools.

Choosing Contrasting Piping & Buttons

Adding contrasting piping and buttons can make a real statement on your Parker Knoll upholstery. Whether you choose bold colours or something more subtle, it's an effective way to add interest and personality to your furniture.

Contrasting piping and buttons also allow customisation within Parker Knoll collections. Mix and match stripes with plains or experiment with different textures like velvet or chenille.

Coordinating Scatter Cushions

One of the best ways to add personality and style to your Parker Knoll sofa or chair is by coordinating scatter cushions. These cushions come in various sizes, shapes and designs, allowing you to mix and match different fabrics and patterns to create a unique look that reflects your taste.

You can go for a cohesive look by choosing matching fabrics or an eclectic feel with contrasting textures and colours. Additionally, it's easy to update your scatter cushions as trends change without breaking the bank - swap them out seasonally for an inexpensive refreshment.

Complementary Footstools

Consider investing in a complementary footstool to add a touch of luxury and comfort to your Parker Knoll sofa or chair. Not only does it provide extra seating space for guests, but it also offers a comfortable place to rest your feet after a long day.

Parker Knoll offers an array of footstools to match their sofas and chairs, ensuring perfect coordination in any living space. From classic leather designs to modern fabric options, there is something for everyone.

Consider choosing a fabric that complements the cushions on your sofa or adds contrast with contrasting piping or buttons.

Maintenance & Care Tips

To ensure your Parker Knoll upholstery maintains its beauty and longevity, following these simple maintenance and care tips is essential. From regular vacuuming and dusting to avoiding harsh chemicals, discover how to keep your furniture looking as good as new for years.

Vacuuming & Dusting

Regular vacuuming and dusting are essential to keep your Parker Knoll furniture looking its best. Pre-brushing with a soft brush can help to improve dust removal before vacuuming. This will aid in removing loose dirt or lint from the fabric.

For more stubborn stains or marks, it's best to seek professional cleaning services instead of relying on DIY methods that may cause further damage to the furniture. However, it’s important not to neglect routine maintenance as this prolongs the life of your furniture and helps retain its original appearance for years to come.

Professional Cleaning

Professional cleaning is recommended to keep your Parker Knoll furniture looking its best. While regular maintenance, such as vacuuming and dusting, can help remove surface dirt and stains, it's essential to have a professional deep clean at least once a year.

Parker Knoll recommends using an approved specialist cleaner with experience working with delicate fabrics. They will use gentle yet effective cleaning methods to ensure no damage is done while removing all the dirt and stains.

Regular professional cleaning not only helps maintain the appearance of your furniture but also increases its lifespan by preventing wear and tear caused by built-up dirt or spills.

Protecting From Direct Sunlight

To protect your Parker Knoll upholstery from direct sunlight, it's important to position your furniture away from windows or use curtains and blinds to filter out UV rays.

Direct sunlight can cause fabric colours and leather to fade, making them look dull and worn out.

In addition to positioning your furniture away from direct sunlight, you can invest in protective covers or treat the fabric with a special UV-resistant coating. Regular vacuuming and dusting will also help prevent any dirt or debris from becoming embedded in the fabric fibres, which can accelerate fading.

Avoiding Harsh Chemicals

It's important to avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning your upholstery fabrics. Using soap or detergents can cause shrinkage, while excessive wetting could lead to colourfastness issues.

Instead, consider using a mild detergent or fabric-specific cleaner recommended by Parker Knoll.

To keep your upholstered furniture looking its best, try a gentle approach and clean up any spills as soon as possible. Regular vacuuming and dusting will also help prevent dirt and debris from building up over time.

Choosing the Right Fabric for Your Furniture

Explore the popular Parker Knoll fabric ranges such as Highland Checks, Classic Plains, Velvet Collection, and Heritage Collection to make an informed decision when selecting the perfect fabric for your sofa or armchair.

Sofas & Armchairs

Consider the space where your sofa or armchair will be when choosing a style. You might prefer something with more structure and firmer cushions in a formal living room, like Parker Knoll's Classic Collection.

However, if it's going in a family room or entertainment centre where comfort is essential, you can opt for something softer and more relaxed, such as the Lifestyle Collection.

Regardless of which style you choose, remember that furniture with fixed seats will require some dressing out with use over time to maintain its shape.

Matching Fabrics & Room Decor

Choosing upholstery fabrics that complement your existing decor is essential to truly bring a room together.

Opt for solid colours or muted tones to balance the overall look if you have a busy patterned wallpaper or curtains.

Alternatively, if your room needs a pop of colour or texture, consider using bold prints or plush fabrics for added interest.

Summary

You now know how to pick the perfect Parker Knoll fabric for your furniture. You're sure to find the ideal home choice by considering factors such as durability, style and aesthetics, and texture and comfort. With Parker Knoll's vast selection of fabrics and leathers, you're guaranteed to find something that meets your unique preferences and transforms your home.
