Crypton Fabric

Wine, coffee, mud - this fabric can handle it all.

Whether you've been dreaming of a white sofa (but afraid of the stains) or longing for a fresh, patterned rug (but fearful the kids and pets will ruin it), look no further than Crypton Fabric.

As home professionals, we have used stain-resistant fabrics extensively and can attest to Crypton's durability. Yes, the fabric lasts. Yes, it looks like beautiful, designer fabric - because it is. (But most of all...) Yes, you can spill coffee on a white sofa and not have a heart attack.

Years of beautiful, reliable durability.

"If this fabric resists stains, is it full of chemicals?" So glad you asked. Crypton totes a GREENGUARD Gold certification, which means that it doesn't have a chemical smell or heavy off-gassing. Even chemically-sensitive people are able to enjoy Crypton fabric without a problem.

Available in designer patterns + solids to match any aesthetic.

Crypton fabric comes in a wide variety of patterns and solids but what doesn't vary, however, is the durability of the fabric. When selecting custom furniture for our clients, we prefer to upholster each new piece with carefully curated Crypton.

Additionally, we suggest using Crypton when re-upholstering existing furniture. It's a fun way to breathe new life into a much-loved family heirloom.

Stain + liquid resistant every time.

We've said it a few times already - Crypton resists stains and liquids - but do you believe it yet? The images above show you what happens when the fabric meets a spill.

...Nothing happens! The liquids bead up and can be wiped away with a damp cloth. Take that, busy toddlers and rambunctious pets.


Re-upholstery is classy

When done correctly, a re-upholstered piece of furniture can look new again. Ensure that your upholstery professional will remove the existing fabric before adding the new fabric (it seems like a given, but you would be surprised...)


Don't forget outdoor furniture

Crypton fabric can be used on outdoor furniture as well, as can Sunbrella fabric. If you have an interest in either of these, simply let us know and we'll be able to help you.
