Help me, what does "itchy-looking red material" mean? Hi everyone! "The Reception Room was shabby, but Lina could tell that it had once been impressive. The walls were dark red, with brownish patches where the paint was peeling away. In the right-hand wall was a closed door. An ugly brown carpet lay on the floor, and on it stood a large armchair covered in ITCHY-LOOKING red material, and several smaller chairs."

It's a more literary way of saying the material appeared rough or irritating to the skin. To itch is to want to scratch something, so the image is very unpleasant when applied to something that's supposed to be comfortable.
