How to upholster padded beds? Features, strengths and weaknesses in 10 examples

| Designbest editorial staff

pholstered beds consist of a structural frame, padding and upholstery that you can now get in practically any style. Chosing the right kind of upholstery is far from easy. There’s so much on offer that it might cause you to restrict your choice to the mere aesthetics such as colour, texture and pints. Before making an informed choice however, there are other practical criteria you need to take into account. In order to resolve this conundrum, we can narrow them down to three key factors: the aesthetics of course, how it withstands constant ware and tare, if it’s easy to clean and if it’s stain-resistant. The macro-categories include upholstery in natural fibres, synthetic fabrics and leather.

So, we’ve asked Samuele Borreani of Albarredo to illustrate the main properties, the pros and the cons of the materials used for upholstered beds. Samuele Borreani is the third generation of his family to be in the furniture trade, from when they opened their first showroom in Savona, northern Italy, over fifty years ago in 1965.
