4. Consider shape and scale

The best interiors designers recommend to use a solid colored fabrics if you consider to upholster a curvaceous piece, because usually the patterns or textures with a distinctive direction may not upholster well.  Take the size of the furniture into account, too. Big statement pieces, such as a sofa, should be upholstered in a rich solid color or classic neutral so you won’t tire of it over time. You can go bold with the smaller pieces like a luxury accent chair in a bolder shade or pattern.
