Summer friendly sofa bed fabrics

With the UK currently experiencing a heatwave and the sunny weather due to continue, it’s important to keep your home cool and comfortable. We’ve picked our favourite sofa bed fabrics for battling the heat this summer.

Lightweight Linens

Linen is a great choice for furniture in hot rooms/climates. Linens absorb moisture and dry quickly to create a breathable, cool fabric. Within our collections we offer a synthetic Stain Resistant Broad Weave Linen in the House Collection which mimics all the benefits and properties of natural linens but with inbuilt stain resistance and high rub counts. If you prefer a 100% pure linen fabric, then this can be found in our Heritage Collection.

Its versatility make it perfect for all styles of room, from traditional to more modern. We offer a wide selection of cottons including a 100% pure washed cotton for a relaxed, vintage feel and stain resistant options for households where a more robust option is needed.
