So you’re thinking of purchasing a brand new leather sofa? There are various aspects to consider whenever you're shopping for a new one. Leather sofas commonly tend to be a bit more pricey than their fabric counterparts but there are various benefits to selecting leather over fabric.
Overall look - Leather sofas can truly hold a room together. When it comes to furniture, leather happens to be a highly popular choice of material and is obtainable in a massive range of colours and styles. Typically, because it is sold in fairly neutral or natural colours it is suited to changes in the rest of its environment and looks fabulous just about anywhere. It also retains its colour extremely well, when it is initially dyed the colour is actually absorbed directly into the material itself which means the colour does not diminish as rapidly as it can with some fabrics or faux leather imitations.
Longevity- Being made using animal skins makes leather exceptionally flexible and resilient. It’s also unbelievably fantastic at withstanding punctures, rips and splits. Leather is also very effective at withstanding stains, grime and allergens (which is fantastic if you or any individual in the house is allergic to animals) and also has the capability to be wiped clean very easily with only a pass over with a damp cloth or a quick dust down every now and again. While it typically is true you will pay more for a genuine leather sofa, compared to a fabric one you will certainly notice that a well-made piece of leather furniture will drastically outlast other materials.
Comfort – whenever fabric and other cheaper materials get older, they are vulnerable to losing their shape and colouring and can easily fade if not looked after well. Unlike synthetic fabrics, leather breathes, this will make it feel much less sticky and it absorbs and releases moisture, not like many imitation vinyls or plastic based furniture. With leather, much like a fine wine, it gets better as it ages. Rather than looking aged and tatty, it keeps its appearance and keeps on looking great as well as becoming more soft and supple.
