What Is High Performance Fabric?

Recliners upholstered in high performance fabric will let you recline like you mean it – worry-free. Here’s how high performance fabrics work to keep your favorite recliners looking and feeling like new even after years of use.


Durability: Will hold up to heavy use without wearing down.

Offering a luxuriously soft-to-the-touch feel, high performance fabric looks and feels like real leather but is actually considered a fabric – and is made from a durable combination of polyester and polyurethane. As a result, recliners made from high performance fabric bring all the comforts of genuine leather recliners – without the cracks, peeling and other signs of wear often associated with them.

High performance fabric is crafted to survive a wealth of spills, damage and daily wear-and-tear.

Stain Resistance

Thanks to a winning combination of polyester and polyurethane, high performance fabrics look and feel like leather while offering a higher level of durability and cleanabiltiy.

Stain Resistance and Easy Cleanability: Resistant to spots and stains; easy to spot clean with a simple soap and water solution.

High performance fabric made from polyurethane isn’t just good for providing long-term luxury comfort – it also brings a high resistance to stains. This means that accidental spills and messes on a high performance recliner won’t absorb as easily as if they were to occur on a traditional recliner – making them easier to clean and maintain a new look and feel for a longer period of time.


Breathability: Breathable design prevents a too-hot seating surface.

Thanks to high ventilation, high performance fabrics are designed to keep you cool and comfortable and prevent you from overheating – perfect for reclining in the hot summer months.

High performance fabrics truly take ‘stress-free lounging’ to a whole new level!
