Buying a Sofa


You may have an idea of what you like when you begin to shop for a sofa.  There are many things to consider however before making that purchase, as many options exist as well as many price ranges.

Cushions may come in foam, down, down wrap/down blend, there are also alternatives to down, cushions may have coils/springs.  Back pillows can be attached, semi-attached, scattered.  construction can be drop in coil units, or 8 to 10 way hand tied.  Softer cushions may seat you closer to the ground causing you to have to pull yourself up and out of a sofa, where firmer cushions tend to seat you higher.  Depths (seat from front to back) vary with sofas, taller people are usually comfortable in deeper seating.  There are slipcovers you can choose, skirted sofas, non -skirted, upholstered sofas, even collage sofas.  Order a contrast welt for a different look, or 5" fringe for a more traditional dramatic effect. 

Stop in, play musical chairs, let us assess your needs and help you find what suits you best. 

All About Outdoor Fabrics



The technology of outdoor fabrics has advanced exponentially in the last 10-15 years, as has the variety of colors, textures and patterns available.  The range of top-quality outdoor fabrics is bewildering, and many of the new fabrics look and feel like indoor fabrics. In fact, many people are now using outdoor fabrics for their indoor spaces, to take advantage of the resistance to fading and stains. 

Do outdoor fabrics really live up to the claim of being UV, stain, and mildew resistant? 

Absolutely – and they do a lot more than that.

At Hildreths we have many sources for beautiful outdoor fabrics:

How are Revolution Performance Fabrics® so stain resistant?

OLEFIN, also known as POLYPROPYLENE, is a unique material because it is totally inert… that’s why milk jugs are made from Olefin. Revolution Performance Fabrics® are made from Olefin yarn that is SOLUTION DYED by mixing pigments in the liquid polymer. The color becomes an integral component of the yarn—That is why it’s VIRTUALLY UNSTAINABLE.

How do I clean Revolution Performance Fabrics®?

Revolution fabrics can be cleaned with almost any household cleaner—even pure bleach will not damage our fabric. Most stains can be blotted and cleaned with just water, but we recommend mixing some BLEACH in the solution to kill any bacteria that might grow. Whatever cleaning product you use, it is important to thoroughly RINSE the fabric with clean water and allow the fabric to AIR DRY.

Are Revolution Performance Fabrics® machine washable?

NO. Machine washing is not necessary and could damage the fabric if done improperly. Revolution Performance Fabrics® should be SPOT CLEANED per the cleaning

Are Revolution Plus Performance Fabrics® machine washable?

YES. Revolution Plus® should be washed on the DELICATE CYCLE with cold water accompanied with laundry detergent and bleach. After the wash is complete, dry your fabric on LOW HEAT for 10 minutes. Since,  Olefin yarn absorbs no water, that should be plenty of time to completely dry your fabric. 
*Only wash and dry on low heat. Exposure to high temperatures will damage Olefin.

Can I iron Revolution Performance Fabrics® or Revolution Plus Performance Fabrics®?

NO. Exposure to high temperatures will damage Olefin. 

What Is the Difference Between Bonded & Top Grain Leather Sofas?


Just because the tag in the furniture store has the word "leather" on it does not mean a sofa's upholstery is a quality, all-natural material. Not all grades of leather, or terms with "leather" in the title, are created equally, which is why a bonded leather sofa is often far less expensive than top-grain leather.

Top Grain

Top-grain leather means leather that has been made from the top or outermost layer of cowhide. Full-grain leather is a top-grain leather that shows all its natural grain and is the most natural. If labeled as top-grain but not full-grain, the leather may be sanded or buffed out to reduce blemishes. It is not as processed as some other forms of leather, however. Top-grain leather is soft and shows natural character. A slightly lower quality top-grain leather is called corrected leather, which may be chemically treated or textured for a more uniform appearance. Corrected leather is durable but not as soft as standard top-grain leather.

Bonded Leather

"Bonded leather" indicates the material contains a small amount of leather in the material. This would be akin to using the term "wood" for pressed wood, which is made from sawdust and wood scraps combined with binding agents. Bonded leather is actually polyurethane on the exposed surface, followed by a thin layer of fabric with bits of leather scraps fused onto it. The inner fabric holds the structure together. Bonded leather is not as strong or as durable as true leather.

What Type Of Fabric Should I Use?


The best fabric to use for your project depends on the look and feel you want the final product to have, however we've listed some common fabric choices for a range of projects below.

Natural Fabrics

Linen: Linen is best suited for formal living rooms or adult areas because it soils and wrinkles easily. And, it won't withstand heavy wear. However, linen does resist pilling and fading. Soiled linen upholstery must be professionally cleaned to avoid shrinkage.

Leather: This tough material can be gently vacuumed, damp-wiped as needed, and cleaned with leather conditioner or saddle soap.

Cotton: This natural fiber provides good resistance to wear, fading, and pilling. It is less resistant to soil, wrinkling, and fire. Surface treatments and blending with other fibers often atone for these weaknesses. Durability and use depend on the weave and finish. Damask weaves are formal; canvas (duck and sailcloth) is more casual and more durable.

Wool: Sturdy and durable, wool and wool blends offer good resistance to pilling, fading, wrinkling, and soil. Generally, wool is blended with a synthetic fiber to make it easier to clean and to reduce the possibility of felting the fibers (causing them to bond together until they resemble felt). Blends can be spot-cleaned when necessary.

Cotton Blend: Depending on the weave, cotton blends can be sturdy, family-friendly fabrics. A stain-resistant finish should be applied for everyday use.

Vinyl: Easy-care and less expensive than leather, vinyls are ideal for busy family living and dining rooms. Durability depends on quality.

Silk: This delicate fabric is only suitable for adult areas, such as formal living rooms. It must be professionally cleaned if soiled.

Synthetic Fabrics

Acetate: Developed as imitation silk, acetate can withstand mildew, pilling, and shrinking. However, it offers only fair resistance to soil and tends to wear, wrinkle, and fade in the sun. It's not a good choice for furniture that will get tough everyday use.

Acrylic: This synthetic fiber was developed as imitation wool. It resists wear, wrinkling, soiling, and fading. Low-quality acrylic may pill excessively in areas that receive high degrees of abrasion. High-quality acrylics are manufactured to pill significantly less.

Nylon: Rarely used alone, nylon is usually blended with other fibers to make it one of the strongest upholstery fabrics. Nylon is very resilient; in a blend, it helps eliminate the crushing of napped fabrics such as velvet. It doesn't readily soil or wrinkle, but it does tend to fade and pill.

Olefin: This is a good choice for furniture that will receive heavy wear. It has no pronounced weaknesses.

Polyester: Rarely used alone in upholstery, polyester is blended with other fibers to add wrinkle resistance, eliminate crushing of napped fabrics, and reduce fading. When blended with wool, polyester aggravates pilling problems.

Rayon: Developed as an imitation silk, linen, and cotton, rayon is durable. However, it wrinkles. Recent developments have made high-quality rayon very practical.

Cleaning Your Sofa Slip Cover

Removing pet hair from your new sofa!


So you just bought a new sofa from Hildreth's how exciting but now you are nervous that your animals fur will destroy your brand new sofa. Not to worry we have some tips and tricks to keep your sofa clean and animal fur free. 

1. Use your vacuum or vacuum hose. Brush your sofa and then use your vacuum hose to pick up those unwanted pet hairs.

2. Invest in a lint roller or use some packaging tape, to clean up the fur with ease from your sofa.

3. Invest in a slipcover, they're easy to clean and, can be quickly changed out for a different style. Slipcovers and pets go hand and hand!

4. Try and brush your pets fur outside and brush often so the fur doesn't land on your sofa. You can also run a dryer sheet over your pet to get the fur off.

5. Use a clean dry sponge and run it slowly across your sofa and the fur will cling to the sponge instead of the sofa.

6. Bathe and groom your pet often. The furniture will last longer when your pet is clean. Also remember to trim their nails. Trimmed nails are happy nails. 

7. Bringing your pets to the Hamptons? Don't leave them in the car where they can overheat, bring them into Hildreth's! We are pet friendly :)
