So you’re thinking of picking out a new leather sofa? There are multiple points to take into consideration when you're shopping for a new one. Leather sofas commonly tend to be a bit more costly than their fabric counterparts however there are a number of advantages to choosing leather over fabric.
Overall look - Leather sofas can truly hold a room together. When it comes to furniture, leather is an incredibly popular choice of material and is obtainable in a large number of colours and styles. Typically, because it is sold in neutral or organic colours it is suited to changes in the rest of its atmosphere and looks wonderful just about anywhere. It also retains its colour remarkably well, when it is initially dyed the colour is actually absorbed directly into the material itself which means the colouring does not diminish as rapidly as it can as with some fabrics or faux leather replicas.
Longevity- Being crafted from animal skins makes leather especially flexible and durable. It’s also tremendously fantastic at withstanding punctures, rips and splits. Leather is also very good at withstanding spillages, dust and allergens (which is fantastic if you or somebody in the house is allergic to pets) and has the ability to be wiped clean with ease with just a wipe with a damp cloth or a quick dust down every now and again to keep it looking fresh. While it typically is true you will spend more on a genuine leather sofa, compared to a fabric one you will notice that a well-made piece of leather furniture will significantly outlast other materials.
Level of comfort – When fabric and various other low-cost materials get older, they are prone to failing to keep their form and colouring and can fade if not looked after well. Unlike synthetic fabrics, leather breathes, this makes it feel less sticky and it absorbs and releases moisture when compared to many imitation vinyl or plastic based sofas. With leather, much like a fine wine, it gets better as it ages. Rather than looking old and tattered it maintains its appearance and form and keeps on looking great as well as becoming more comfortable and supple.
