Link Design Seams

As with all our Link Design Sofas & Armchairs, the upholstery is completed in a totally unique way. The area of the seat underneath the seat cushions has no gaps down the sides for liquid or dirt to become trapped in. The whole seating area can simply and effectively be washed down and then disinfected if necessary. Covers are permanently fitted and NOT removed for cleaning.


When cleaned in accordance with the manufacturers instructions, the Crib 5 fabrics that we use are 100% water and urine proof. However, when 2 pieces of fabric are joined by means of a stitched seam, small holes are made for the thread to pass through.
Whilst the fabrics are fully waterproof, seams always present an area of vulnerability and cannot be fully waterproof.  We incorporate minimal stitched seams to maximise water resistance and have our unique Link Design method of manufacturing seams to prevent pooling in vulnerable areas.
