Is Chenille a velvet?
No chenille is not velvet. The two fabrics are manufactured in different ways. In French, Chenille means 'caterpillar' because the fabric is weaved to look like a caterpillar. Velvet, however, is cut to make a finish that is extremely soft-to-touch.Velvet Armchairs

Chenille Armchair FAQs

Is Chenille Good For Furniture?
Chenille is a great choice for furniture, especially upholstered pieces like sofas, armchairs, ottomans, footstools. It’s a fabric that looks good, is durable, versatile and comfortable.
Is Chenille The Same As Velvet?
No. Both Chenille and Velvet are seen as plush, soft-to-touch and luxe, but there are key differences in appearance, fabric construction and the materials used. Velvet is made by weaving two threads together and cutting them apart. Chenille, on the other hand, uses yarn that is woven into tight loops, creating a soft feel.
Can You Clean Chenille Armchairs?
Yes, you can clean chenille armchairs, but you have to be careful to make sure you don’t ruin the fabric. Hoover regularly to remove any dirt or dust. Blot clean if any liquid is spilt onto a chenille armchair. Move the armchair away from direct sunlight and flip the cushions to ensure there's even wear.
Are Chenille Couches Durable?
Chenille has a tight weave which means it is naturally durable and holds together well against everyday wear and tear of a sofa. However, it does require more maintenance than a typical upholstered sofa. Chenille can’t be machine washed and will need to be cleaned professional or spot cleaned. We’d recommend looking at our Emmiera Furniture Protection.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of chenille fabric?
Much like other fabrics, chenille has its own advantages and disadvantages. Chenille is a soft and comfortable fabric that’s incredibly soft-to-touch. Chenille is durable, versatile, looks great and is a warm material.
Chenille’s disadvantages, however, are that it can be expensive, heavy, requires special care to keep its softness and it can shed, creating tiny balls of fluff.
