For any antique restoration furniture, each fiber has unique characteristics that make it desirable in some ways, though limiting its appeal in other ways. Often fibers are blended in a fabric to capitalize on the strengths of each, while minimizing their weaknesses. Rayon, for example, does not wear well but is often blended with fibers that are stronger because it accepts dye well and give the fabric luster to the antique furniture. Natural fibers are generally easier to work than synthetics. However, synthetics blended with natural fibers often produce a more stable fabric in your mid-century chair.
