Fashion and function go hand in hand to create and establish trends in restaurant designs. While consumers expect an instantaneous feeling of lovely ambience, it’s up to the restaurant owners to get their ducks in a row and provide clients with a schematic layout complete with eye to the detail.
In recent years we have been noticing that when upholstery fabrics in restaurants start looking dirty, the owners prefer to replace them rather than have them cleaned. Modern fabrics of commercial use are designed and treated for high performance, hence they soil slowly and wear out much slower. Nano polymer coating on commercial fabrics make them not only water and oil repellant but also tend to be anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Nano coating also acts heavily as a stain guard thus making the fabric look new and glossy for a long time.
Thanks to these amazing new properties impacted by nano polymers, increasing their efficiency while keeping costs and maintenance low, they have become a great part of the modern trends in restaurant design and upholstery. Most fabrics with modern nano technology can also be transformed to heat and odor resistant, wrinkle free and UV protected.
Restaurant seating need to withstand incredible amounts of use and abuse. So modern upholstery trends are here to provide ease of seating with a wide array of fabrics and material. Microfibers and ultrafine fibers are woven into fabrics, the outcome is a fabric with ultra-functioning dense structure. Thus woven, it can create waterproof fabrics which enhance stain and soil guard properties by enabling spills to bead up and roll off before they soak up into the fabric.
Double rubs are a must while keeping up with the trend. Double rubs are a standard of measurement of a fabric’s scratch and graze resistance. These fabrics go through a highly automated test called The Wyzenbeen Test, where a piece of cotton duck is stretched over a mechanical arm and passed back and forth over the test fabric in each direction. This action of passing the fabric back and forth once is called a single double rub. A tough fabric can withstand at least 5000 double rubs before starting to show some wear and tear. Fabrics that can stand 15,000 double rubs or more are considered for heavy duty commercial applications like hotels and restaurants.
