Fabric Spotlight: Vinyl

Go Back

This week, we're featuring another popular fabric used in furniture design, vinyl. Vinyl upholstery is a commonly used fabric for office chairs and reception seating. It's ideal for commercial use because it can be easily cleaned, is durable, and is relatively maintenance-free.

Reception chairs like our popular Widmore Traditional Captain's Chair pictured below, are made of vinyl upholstery and are commonly used to outfit office waiting rooms or as extra guest seating. And it's not hard to see why. The classic-traditional look and easy to clean surface make it a perfect reception area choice.

Our Widmore chair is also available as an executive style chair as you can see below. It's made with the same soft, durable vinyl upholstery.

Tips on Cleaning Vinyl

The good thing about vinyl upholstery, is that is relatively easy to maintain and clean. We've put together some tips on cleaning your vinyl furniture in a previous blog post here. Below are the two good options you can use when it comes to cleaning your vinyl furniture:

  • - Baking soda & water - Sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth and rub into furniture. Use a damp cloth to rinse. If you need to remove a stain, try mixing the baking soda and water into a paste and scrub with a brush and rinse.
  • - Vinegar, warm water & Murphy Oil Soap - Use a half a cup of warm water, a half a cup of vinegar, and two teaspoons of Murphy Oil Soap and wipe with a damp cloth.

As you can see, taking care of your vinyl furniture is relatively easy and doesn't require a ton of work - making it a great option for commercial uses like an office. Have more questions on vinyl furniture? Leave a comment below!
