Capsule fabric customer reviews
As always, the best way to find out what the fabric is like at Capsule is to look to past customers for their experiences. Here's what we found:
"Just love this sofa. I have a big family and we all fit comfortably. It's firm, so looks a lot cleaner than some other sofas. And the fabric seems sturdy too and has yet to pill despite the amount of love it gets!"
- Jessica K., Frey Sofa
"In terms of fabric, the oatmeal is thin and light so we have already stained it."
- Katherine W., Kellan Sectional Sofa in Oatmeal
"Gray tweed is a very cool shade of gray and lighter than it looks online - almost has a purple tint to it. Great big, durable, comfy couch otherwise."
- Mackenzie A., Kellan Sectional Sofa in Gray Tweed
"When looking at the fabric samples that were sent, most of them were thin and did not have a backing to them, which would cause the material to roll. However, everything is lovely and is wearing well considering I've only had the items a few months. I was pleased to find such great design at an affordable price and to have furniture that didn't fall apart even though it was more affordable."
- Caitlin M., Freeman Sofa
Caring for Capsule fabrics
As far as cleaning your Capsule sofas or other seating, they offer this advice:
For leather, you apparently only need to clean it occasionally, thanks to Capsule's careful process of preservation. When you do need to clean, wipe down the leather with a warm, damp cloth and dry completely to remove dust and dirt. For the use of leather cleaning products, be sure that the product is designed for full grain leather.
Make sure to keep your leather furniture away from lengthy periods of sunlight exposure. This may lead to discoloration and weakening of the leather and the wooden frame.
For the leather chair, use a soft and dry cloth to clean the chair for regular maintenance. If the chair is stained, wipe up the stain with a dry cloth quickly, or use a small amount of leather cleaner on a soft sponge or cloth, and wipe the affected area gently.
For slip covers and fabric Capsule recommends professional cleaning only. You may brush or vacuum your furniture to remove dirt and dust. For other upholstered products, you can use water to clean suede products and light foam cleaner for all other fabrics.
In summary, based on many of the reviews I looked at, I'm going to rate Capsule a little lower on the fabric quality scale. That being said, it is cheaper than a lot of the other players in the market, so it might be a worthy trade-off for many shopper.
