Tips for cleaning fabric furniture

Upholstered furniture is as varied as the tastes of the owners that choose the colors, fabrics, patterns and textures. Even though upholstered furniture comes in various sizes, shapes and fabrics, they all have one thing in common - - they attract dirt. Normal wear and tear from family, pets and visitors is to be expected; however, you can extend the life of your upholstered furniture with regular cleaning and periodic deep cleaning. Deep cleaning your furniture will keep it looking beautiful longer.

Deep Cleaning Furniture Basics

1. Remove all covers and cushions. Check for loose buttons, broken zippers or any other items that need to be repaired.

2. If you have checked the manufacturer's cleaning instructions and know that the cushion covers may be washed, remove the cushion covers and check for stains. Pre-treat stains and launder according to the manufacturer's instructions. If the cushions are not washable or they cannot be removed, then proceed to the next step.

3. Use the hand attachments for your vacuum cleaner to thoroughly vacuum the entire piece of furniture. Make sure that you pay special attention to the crevices and corners to remove all loose dirt and debris from the furniture.

4. Inspect the cushions for any stains or spots. If you find stains, you will need to clean the stains by hand if you cannot remove the covers and wash them. Also, check for any stains on the frame of the upholstered furniture. You may need to spot treat the stains in order to remove them.

5. In the late '60s, the furniture industry adopted a code to identify how certain fabrics should be cleaned. Check the manufacturer's tag on your upholstered furniture to determine which of the four categories (W, S, W-S or X) applies to your furniture. Read the manufacturer's recommendations about what materials are best for cleaning the fabric either online or in your owner's manual. Following the directions, deep clean the entire surface of the upholstered furniture. Depending on the furniture cleaning code, you may be using water, solvents or commercial cleaning solutions; however, no matter what you clean with do not scrub the fabric with any abrasive materials to avoid damage.

6. Use a damp sponge to rub over the entire surface to remove any soap residue - - soap residue will attract more dirt if left on the furniture.


7. Allow the furniture to dry completely. Using a small fan will help the furniture dry faster and more thoroughly. Remember that part of deep cleaning is cleaning the wooden parts of the furniture too. Use a wood cleaner to clean and shine the wooden legs and arms of your upholstered furniture.

What is Baroque Furniture

The Baroque style uses exaggerated motionand clear detail to produce grandeur and exuberance in painting, sculpture,music, and decoration. Baroque furniture captures that flair and is obvious inrich detail, vibrant colors, and opulence. Decorations of the period wereprofusely detailed and highly ornamental. The Baroque started in the early1600s in Rome and spread all around Europe.
The Roman Catholic Church encouraged the opulent style by using Baroque furniture and paintings. The church said it wanted to use Baroque art and style to inspire raw emotions, thus enabling people to feel closer to religion. Aristocracy also appreciated the dramatic style of Baroque furniture and used it in their palaces. Baroque style favors large pieces, exaggerated decorations, colossal sculptures, and high volumes.
Louis XIV of France enjoyed the Baroquefurniture and used it as evidence of his regal glory. He was the King of Francefrom 1643 until 1715, when he died. It was heavily incorporated at hisVersailles royal palace.

Smalldetails were generally incorporated into Baroque furniture. Cherubs were oftendepicted in the art, and were added to almost any piece of furniture or decor.The cherubs were evident from fireplaces to paintings. They were also used asan accent in the furniture, often being carved into an arm chair or sofa.Nymphs and angels often accompanied, or replaced, the cherubs.

What is Rococo Furniture

Rococo furniture, also described as Louis Quinze, Louis or Louis XV, after the King of France who influenced it, originally began with this king in France, but is considered to be developed by two words - Rocaille, which is French for shell and the Italian word of Barocco, which stands for Baroque. This can give you some idea of the theme of the furniture, and is considered to be somewhat familiar to another style of furniture, known as Baroque furniture. 

Highly influenced by the French King, Louis XV, the styles of Rococo furniture are, as mentioned, very similar to that of Baroque furniture featuring strong appearances and symmetrical forms. However, the change in monarchy brought about a rather dramatic change of style and architecture and the Rococo furniture period began.

The style changed to be somewhat lighter and less dramatic in appearance, and Rococo furniture had a more elegant and sophisticated aesthetic. As the style became more and more developed, it was considered to be somewhat frivolous and set a more playful and delicate form of furnishings.

Unlike Baroque furniture, Rococo furniture seemed to centre more on asymmetrical designs rather than the symmetrical forms that King Louis XIV favoured, and by the early 1730's this theme of furniture reached a rather high and well regarded peak in France. It was more influencing in architecture and painting rather than furniture and often was on a much smaller scale, but still influenced the items of furniture within homes. The larger and grander designs were out, and lighter and prettier things were in vogue. 

Rococo in England was more developing in areas such as painting and the arts rather than furniture and architecture but with Thomas Chippendale, an English furniture designer, wonderful upholstered pieces of Rococo furniture were in fashion as were Rococo headboards, and these were considered much more elegant than previous designs. 

Even though Rococo furniture from France was a starting point for this so called Rococo England, the look was slightly less exuberant than that in France and its pieces less costly. However, it was only some 30 years after the peak of this style that it started to fall from vogue. There was a new style of furniture and architecture emerging, and there was no longer such a demand for the more intimate Rococo furniture pieces that were once so highly regarded fashion items.  With any period in history the fashion and trends of clothing and furniture styles change, and this was considered to be a rather small part of the style history of the world. It was perhaps too influenced by the Baroque period, and therefore had already had its limelight. It was therefore time for a new style to take hold. 

However, Rococo furniture is now again very much in demand in today's society and this high demand has bred a group of specialist suppliers. Now considered to be an investment, Rococo pieces of furniture are intricately beautiful and can form a breathtaking centrepiece for any home whether that be a Rococo chair or an extravagant Rococo mirror.

Paris Apartment Decoration Style


The image of a Paris apartment brings the thought of intrigue, romance, and European beauty to mind. Rooms have high ceilings with grand architectural details. A small balcony with a wrought iron railing overlooks a quaint street or the River Seine. Windows are tall. Pedestrians bustle on the streets below.Paris apartment decorating style ranges through many decorating periods, including baroquerococo, and neoclassical. Contemporary Parisian apartments incorporate art deco, Mediterranean, old world, and cabaret influences.
Burnished gilt touches accent architectural details and carving on furniture.
Furniture and accessories have time-worn eleganceand a vintage look. Chairs, tables, and armoires painted in black or cream bear golden accents. They blend beautifully with dark, carved wood. Rich, shimmering silks and luxurious brocades and velvets enhance upscale interiors.
To finish out a Paris style interior, accessories and motifs include vintage posters of French nightspots, French signs, large train station clocks, black wrought iron tables and shelving, and any scenes of France, Paris, or the Eiffel Tower.
If you're trying to bring the Paris apartment decorating style to your home, try to incorporate some of these elements in your space:
Black is the accent color and a unifying element in Paris rooms. Bring black into your home without making things look dark. Find painted wood furniture, picture frames, fabrics, lampshades and accessories in black or with black trim.
To really bring Paris to your room, use large posters of French landmarks, nightspots, and Parisian buildings. If you can find paintings, etchings, old black and white postcards, or sepia-toned photos of anything French, all the better.
Furniture should be upholstered with beautiful fabrics, dressmaker details, and have carved legs. Cushions of down provide the slightly rumpled look of comfort and elegance.
Wood furniture pieces of carved, dark tones or stains are often tinged with touches of gilt. Black and ivory paint, distressed and crackled, give wood pieces an aged look. There's no such thing as matching furniture. Pieces should look as though they were found through a lifetime.
Every Paris style bedroom has a decadent vanity table. Add a luxurious look to a simple table by dressing it with silk, mirrors, and voluminous ruffles. Dress it with vintage accessories, frames, and perfume bottles.
Paris apartment interiors appeal to our sense of glamour and European style. By using some of the elements here, you can bring the look to your own home.
