Regardless of if you have children, pets, or many visitors, choosing the right fabric for your furniture can be challenging, particularly when looking for the perfect rental furniture for your apartment, condo, or home. One of the first things to consider is how often the furniture will be used.

When subject to heavy wear and tear, it’s best to select a durable fabric that can easily be cleaned. If the furniture is not used often, you can essentially choose any material that suits the room. However, we have outlined the different furniture fabrics below to help you determine which fabric is ideal for your living space.


👉 Microfiber

This soft, polyester fabric is becoming more and more popular, and for a good reason! Microfiber is stain-resistant, water-resistant, and fade-resistant, which makes it excellent for families renting furniture with children and pets. The small synthetic fibers are hypoallergenic, resulting in less penetration of dust and allergens within the fabric.


👉 Chenille

The soft and fuzzy feel of chenille is quite deceptive as it is highly durable, making it perfect for furniture rental. The tight weave of this popular cotton-blend material adds durability, ensuring the kids and pets won’t cause devastating damage.


👉 Faux Leather

Most commonly made of polyurethane, faux leather is an environmentally-friendly furniture material that is strong and very easy to clean. You can simply wipe this fabric with a wet cloth, and viola! All dirt and dust are gone! With a nearly endless assortment of colors and patterns, faux leather does not require as much maintenance as the real thing.


👉 Polyester

While polyester is rarely used alone in a fabric, many pieces of furniture implement a polyester blend. These blends are resistant to wrinkles and fading.

After discovering the fabric that best compliments your lifestyle, it makes finding furniture so much easier.
