Did you know Eleanor Rigby Home now offers performance fabrics? Our newest addition to  fabric options brings you some of the best performance fabrics on the market. Made to withstand muddy paws, spilled wine and intense sun exposure, they are stain resistant, easy to clean and extremely durable. They are also soft and beautiful, with options in a variety of texture and prints.

So choose with confidence! Our time-honored methods and exacting care now include even more options for materials with 21st century expectations. Here’s why we love performance options and you will too.

1. The Resistance

No this is not about Star Wars. This resistance is all about the toughness of performance fabric. These cloths and fibers are  water resistant, stain resistant, and mold and mildew resistant. Pet has an accident? You’re covered. A glass of wine takes a tumble? No problem.

2. Easy to Clean

Performance fabrics are easier to clean and keep clean compared to other furniture fabrics.

The most common threads used for performance upholstery fabric are olefin, acrylic, nylon, and polyester. All of these threads except nylon are particularly known for their ability to be washed and cleaned easily. If you do happen to find a tough stain, use one of these top laundry stain removers before washing, drying, and unintentionally setting the stain.

3. Environmental Benefits

Performance Fabrics are sturdy

This one is specific to olefin. Olefin is made from the process of upcycling petroleum. It uses no land or water to produce and olefin possesses performance fabric qualities without needing to be chemically treated.

4. No Stretch and Shrinkage

Performance fabrics will not shrink.

We’ve all had the sweater that goes from a great fit to a super tiny in the wash. Performance fabrics are treated to ensure that the size you buy is the size you keep.


5. Fun in the Sun

Performance fabrics will not fade in color.

Performance fabrics have a quality called light fastness. This means your patio furniture can stay bright and poppy despite the strong rays of the sun beating down from above.


We’re big fans of comfort but feel strongly that you shouldn’t sacrifice style when purchasing a power recliner. Our motion recliners reflect the tailored design and unique styling of our custom upholstery and feature three different seat widths and many options for position control, all in the push of a button. We use Leggett & Platt mechanisms that are tried and tested for reliability and durability by the world’s largest furniture components company.

Another perk: our signature motion models are a modular concept so you can build a sofa or sectional to fit your exact space. And because all pieces are built separately and click together to form sofas or sectionals, they are easy to deliver and set up. This feature also allows every seating section its own control. In addition, all of our motion pieces have a battery pack option and can happily float in a room and will only need periodic charging.

Designers love our motion recliner models because they look good and feel good. We see no reason that you can’t have both.
