So many people are looking for corduroy upholstery. I get the appeal. It is a time tested favorite for casual settings, inviting and warm. As with all pile type fabrics, spills tend to not soak in too much, sitting on top of the pile, so you can usually wipe them down successfully.
The cord is railroaded, (runs across) meaning wide cuts do not require piecing which saves a bit of work.
The width is 59" which is quite wide, giving you a bit of extra value.
