What upholstery options are available for your gaming stools?
When choosing gaming stools for your pub, club or hotel, upholstery is an important component. Not only is it the most visually striking part of the chair, it covers the area that will be most affected by constant use. For that reason, it’s important to choose the upholstery that’s right for you.
But how do you know which is best? Karo offers a broad range of fabric and vinyl upholstery, but if none of these meet your requirements, we will upholster your stools in any commercially available fabric, vinyl or leather. Here are some options – take a look, and get in touch with us once you know which you’d like to cover your brand new pokie stools.
Karo’s Fabrics & Vinyl
At Karo, we purchase commercial-grade fabric and vinyl directly from the manufacturers, and because we buy in bulk, we are able to secure volume discounts that we pass directly onto our customers. Whether you choose to upholster the stools all in fabric or vinyl or a mix of the two, we have a broad range of choices to suit almost any décor.
Our Digital, Orbit and Vulcan fabrics are a popular option for stool backrests, while the Harvard and Cotting Esprit Vinyl are the ‘go-to’ options for seats – samples of all of these can be viewed on Karo’s website. If none of our upholstery options suit your gaming floor, consider using one of our preferred suppliers:
Instyle has a number of neutral coloured textiles and vinyls that venue operators can choose to upholster their casino seating with. The company has won numerous awards for their environmentally friendly processes and innovations. They’ve also been recognised for their exceptional design, winning 2011’s Best of Neocon Editor’s Choice Award. Check out some of their textiles below.
Since 1987, Woven Image has been a world leader in the creation of high-quality fabrics and textiles. The company strives to offer products that are both durable and beautifully designed – you can see a few examples from their Instagram below.
Woven Image is also proud to have been the first to create high-performance textiles from recycled materials, so they too have a commitment to environmental preservation.
Like Woven Image, Laine has been around for more than three decades, and in that time they’ve built a great team culture based on honesty, integrity and ethical practices. They are also dedicated to environmental-friendliness, and continue to supply fabrics and vinyls to customers across Australasia and beyond. See some examples of their textiles below.
Materialised is a NSW based fabric supplier that allows you to design your own fabric if you choose – gaming floor operators can either choose a design to be printed on their stools or create one themselves. The company is known throughout the region for its ‘Fabrics for the Real World’ training programme, designed for both students and practitioners alike. Materialised has notable environmental and charitable policies as well.
One of the older fabric suppliers in Australia, Warwick has been designing and producing upholstery since 1966. They supply materials to clients across the world and have showrooms in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, India, South Africa and Dubai.
A couple of fun facts about Warwick: They used to be Australia’s largest importer of velvet in the 1970’s, and their logo was made by famous Australian designer Ken Cato.
