Welcome to Selby Soft Furnishings

Selby Soft Furnishings is a family-run business here in the UK. We provide a wide range of high quality and reasonably-priced upholstery and curtain fabrics (plus all of the supplies and tools you might need), for those of you who create your own soft furnishings.

 

We’re proud of our large fabric and upholstery selection, which at times includes choices from the world’s leading designers and brands like Laura Ashley, Sanderson, Voyage, Zoffany, and many more. Our material is available in a dizzying array of patterns, colours and textures, and we have carefully selected each product to ensure both quality and value. We even offer free samples of our fabrics to help you decide which will work best for your project.

 

We also have our own exclusive line of hand-made, top-quality bean cubes, bean-filled pouffes and scatter cushion covers. We make all of these soft furnishings right here in house, from the finest fabrics and materials available.

 

Whether you’re a do-it-yourself home designer looking to redress your windows, make beautiful new curtains or reupholster your chairs and settee – or just want to find that “perfect accessory” or cushion cover to give your room a splash of colour and a new look – you’ll find exactly what you need at Selby Soft Furnishings.

 

Enjoy your stay, and please contact us if you have any questions or special requests!

 

CREATE YOUR OWN SOFT FURNISHINGS WITH OUR HIGH QUALITY FABRICS

Every year, more and more people choose to make their own soft furnishings and curtains, or to reupholster their own furniture. Some do it to save money, others do because they want to implement their own perfect “design vision” for their home. Many do it simply because home decorating is fun, enjoyable and rewarding.

 

No matter the reason, Selby Soft Furnishings is the web’s “go-to” site for all of the materials, tools and supplies you need to make your home a showplace.

 

We spend an enormous amount of time selecting the best quality discount fabrics and upholstery to make available on our site. Each design is hand-picked and carefully screened; we will never stock or offer seconds or lower-quality material. And we personally inspect every metre of fabric before it ships, to ensure your satisfaction. You shouldn’t settle for less, and neither do we.

 

The selection available at Selby Soft Furnishings is among the best you’ll find anywhere. We stock cotton, linen, jacquard, velvet, damask, chenille – the list goes on. And the colors and patterns we offer will match just about any décor: plains, checks, floral, stripes and abstracts. Your choices are only limited by your imagination.

 

Every single fabric in our inventory is one you’d be proud to have in your home, and we regularly have material from the world’s top designers available for purchase. These aren’t seconds. They’re the highest-quality discount and end-of-line products which have sold for much higher prices before we’ve obtained them. You get the very best fabrics and upholstery, at incredible prices.

 

We also stock all of the supplies and sewing tools you’ll need to make your own curtains and soft furnishings, or reupholster your existing chairs and sofas. We stock linings and inserts for curtains, velcro, heading tapes, and zips, and even scissors, rulers, needles and pins. You can get everything required to complete your design project in one easy order.

 

As a family-run business, we take our reputation seriously because our own name is at stake. We pay full attention to every detail of our operation, and will ensure that you’re satisfied.

 

We've also put together some soft furnsihing guides for our customers who wish create their own soft furnishings. Lean how to create your own simple cushion covers, or even a set of simple curtains.

SPICE UP YOUR DÉCOR WITH OUR EXCLUSIVE, HAND-MADE SOFT FURNISHINGS

We’ve also put our family name on our exclusive line of stunning soft furnishings. They are all professionally designed and made in-house with Rita’s 30 years of experience in upholstery and clothing. You can be sure the quality is impecable.

 

Choose from our stunning lines of Selby Soft Furnishings:

 

Bean Bag Cubes – Every one of our bean cubes is made from premium quality fabric or vinyl, double zipped, and pre-filled. They’re perfect to add a casual look to any room, and are great to use as seats (particularly for kids) or footstools (if you’re on the tall side). You can select from materials like chenille, jacquard, and faux leather in solids, patterns or stripes; all you have to do is open the shipping package and enjoy.

 

Bean Bag Footstools – Our exclusive bean-filled footstools add another level of comfort beyond bean cubes. They’re not as tall but are just as durable, made from the same premium materials and pre-filled, and are an ideal spot to rest your feet after a day’s work while adding colour and pizzazz to your décor.

 

Scatter Cushion Covers – Completely hand-made, fully reversible and available in an enormous array of fabrics, colours and patterns, these scatter cushions are ideal to put the final touch on any décor. Just a few of these cushions will make your living space look like it’s ready for a feature spread in a home and garden magazine.

 

Foldable Shopping Bags - A brand new addition to our website. These meticulously crafted shopping bags are handmade from quality fabrics and feature a foldable design which allows you to easily store them when not in use.

 

ENJOY THE ULTIMATE IN CONVENIENCE AND CONSUMER CARE

At Selby Soft Furnishings, we’ve done everything possible to make it simple for you to choose the perfect scatter cushion covers, upholstery and curtain fabrics, and soft furnishing items.

 

We’ve designed our website for easy browsing and ordering. We’ve taken special care with the photographs and descriptions on the site, including the use of our own DSLR photos taken in natural lighting, to make sure you see 100% accurate representations of the product. We offer quick shipping with a wealth of delivery options.

 

Unlike other soft furnishing sites, we offer free samples of our fabrics to help you decide. There’s a limit of four samples per order (which we think is fair), but there are absolutely no “nominal fees” whatsoever. To us, free means free.

 

We hope that you’ll make Selby Soft Furnishings your regular destination, whenever you’re looking for quality curtain and upholstery fabric or hand-made soft furnishings. Our family looks forward to serving yours.
