Soft Furnishings are part of what makes a house a home, and can add a sense of intimacy, warmth and character to a space by accenting it with patterned and colourful materials. Such furnishings can however amount to big ticket items if bought from mainstream mass producers, while the quality of these products is in fact less than ideal. Selby Soft Furnishings provides wholesale materials and guides to empower homeowners to make their own soft furnishings, and has recently begun to create a limited range of high quality, handcrafted items for sale, including a new range of ottomans, bean cubes and pouffes.
Soft furnishings such as curtains and cushions can be expensive to buy and are actually far cheaper to make, if one can find the raw materials affordably. Many crafty individuals sew these items themselves using wholesale fabrics from online stores like Selby Soft Furnishings, who offer a comprehensive catalogue of colours, patterns and fabric types that can be used for everything from curtains to re-upholstering a sofa. Unfortunately the only thing standing in most people’s way is not knowing how to start, so Selby Soft Furnishings has published a comprehensive, step by step guide to making curtains and cushions.
