I’ve just been accepted to NYSID for this fall! Now to find a place and some roommates.
a method for testing fabric durability; it tests abrasion using a mechanical arm that rubs the fabric back and forth, creating the name “double rub” for the standard measurement
3,000 double rubs is a low-durability fabric best for decor such as curtains.
30,000 is extra-high durability fabric good for even waiting rooms, fast food restaurants, and stadiums.
I had to look up double rubs after seeing an article about a 100,000 double rub fabric minimum. This fabric can be even more durable than that! Check it out below:
•Coffee tables are usually 17-19” high. Modern rooms call for shorter tables.
•They should be one-half to two-thirds the length of your couch.
•Place it 18” away from the couch. This keeps it within reach while leaving some leg room.
•Rectangles are more orderly. Those with a shelf below allow for remote storage.
•Circles, however, are never crooked. They also provide soothing contrast to boxy furniture.
•A large ottoman with tray is best for entertaining, as it doubles as seating.
•Have a small space? Go clear. It’ll make the room seem larger, as will a solid in a color similar to the floor or rug.
