Textiles

Textiles play a crucial role in the experience of furniture and contribute to great seat comfort. There is a broad variety of textiles, in multiple styles, colours and designs, suitable for Finn Juhl’s furniture. Each textile has its own characteristics and the nature of the furniture is easily customized with the choice of a unique textile.

The textiles used at House of Finn Juhl are of the highest quality, easy to maintain and extremely durable. Our partners continuously work to improve the quality and lifespan of the textiles, while minimizing the negative environmental impact.

 

The Martindale-test is used to test the durability of the textiles. During the test, the fabric is worn against a standard woolen with a specific weight load, which determines the wear resistance. 
When choosing a piece of furniture, remember to take into consideration in which environment the furniture is to be used, as well as the wear resistance you need. 

For private use, the Technological Institute recommend between 10.000-25.000 Martindale. For use in public spaces, a minimum durability of 10.000-45.000 is recommended. Nevertheless, most of our textiles has a remarkably higher durability.

 

Be aware that not all types of textiles are suitable for all of Finn Juhl’s furniture. Further information can be found at our retailers.

Maintenance

Regular cleaning will help maintain the appearance of the textile and extend its life. Upholstered furniture collects dust, which will wear out the textile and contribute to a bad indoor climate.
We recommend vacuuming your upholstered furniture frequently with a clean mouthpiece, ideally every week. If the textile is delicate, we suggest that you use a soft mouthpiece on low suction level. To remove light stains, use a cloth which prior has been tightly wrung, in clean boiled water that has been cooled down to lukewarm temperature.

Do not use harsh or chemical cleaning agents on the textiles as they may damage the material. Avoid rubbing firmly on stains as this can potentially damage the fabric and the colour of the textiles. Remember to let the textile dry completely before using the furniture again after cleaning with water. In case of difficult stains or blotches, we always recommend contacting a professional furniture dry-cleaning service.

Upholstered furniture should not be placed close to heat sources like wooden stoves and radiators. Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight over a longer period of time.

 

Textile

Please note that many of the textiles are combined from wool, cotton, polyester and nylon. The specific amount of each material is stated underneath each type of textile.

 

WOOL

Wool is natural hair fibres from sheep and is therefore a biodegradable product. Wool ages with grace and is a versatile material with a large range of benefits. Wool fibres contain lanolin which is a natural grease that repels water and dirt. Wool is flame retardant and extremely durable. It consists of compact, soft and breathable fibres, which makes it a comfortable material as the fibres adapt to the room temperature. Wool can be used for both hard and soft upholstery but is especially suitable for furniture with organic shapes such as those of Finn Juhl, as the elastic fibres ensure good stretching properties.  

 

COTTON

Cotton is a natural fibre. The seed wool is picked from plants and then spun into cotton yarn. As it is a plant fibre, the material is biodegradable. Cotton is characterized by being a soft, comfortable and breathable material – and at the same time extremely durable. 

 

POLYESTER

Polyester is a synthetic fibre, and the term covers a variety of polymeric materials. The fibres are smooth and fine and have an extremely high abrasion resistance. It is a hypoallergenic material that is not affected by moisture and can withstand washing at high temperatures. Polyester is ideal for increasing the strength and flexibility in natural materials. In addition, it is flame retardant and requires no chemical treatment.

 

NYLON

Nylon is a synthetic fibre and is the most widely used of the synthetic polymers. Nylon has an impressive high strength compared to its weight and is very resistant to wear and tear. It is comfortable against the skin and at the same time soft and insulating. In addition, Nylon is ideal for increasing the strength and flexibility in natural materials.
