Our den sofa needs recovering. Our house is classic California eclectic Spanish Revival, art deco, with a little moderne thrown in. I like the look of a Jean Michel Frank style although we have a sectional couch. My original thought is to use a high quality mohair fabric. In looking around at furniture lately I see that velvet is very popular. I would like to hear from the experts on the pros and cons of mohair, velvet (and what type of velvet), and any suggestions as to a quality fabric that will give us a classic, tailored look while being very comfy and will hold up to daily use.
