So you are thinking of buying yourself a brand new leather sofa? There are various aspects to think about when buying a new one. Leather sofas have a tendency to be somewhat more expensive than their fabric counterparts but there are numerous advantages to opting for leather over fabric.
Appearance - Leather sofas can absolutely hold a room together. When it comes down to furniture, leather definitely is a remarkably popular choice of material and is obtainable in a large number of colours and styles so there is something for everyone. Usually, because it is sold in neutral or organic colours it is suitable to changes in the rest of its environment or surroundings and looks great anywhere. It also preserves its colour incredibly well, when it is initially dyed the colour will be absorbed directly into the material itself which means that the colour does not diminish as easily as it can with certain fabrics or faux leather-based imitations.
Longevity- Being crafted from animal skin makes leather exceptionally flexible and tough. It’s also extremely good at withstanding punctures, rips and tears. Leather is also extremely good at resisting spillages, dirt and allergens (which is great if you or somebody in the home is allergic to animals) and also has the capability to be wiped clean extremely easily with just a wipe with a damp cloth or a quick dust down every now and again. While it is true you will generally pay more for a genuine leather sofa, as opposed to a fabric one you will certainly find that a well-made piece of leather furniture will significantly outlast other fabrics.
Comfort – When fabric and various other cheaper materials get older, they are susceptible to losing their form and colouring if not maintained or looked after well. In contrast to synthetic fabrics, leather breathes, this will make it feel less sticky and it absorbs and releases moisture in comparison to many imitation vinyl or plastic based sofas. With leather, very much like a fine wine, it gets better as it ages. Instead of looking old and tattered it preserves its appearance and continues to look desirable as well as becoming more soft and supple.
