Reasons to Buy Leather Sofas
When you come to make the expensive purchase of a new sofa, there are numerous things to think about. Size, budget and fabric – will you choose your couch from the array of fabric or leather sofas? Here are some pro’s to going for the latter:
Stylish & Sophisticated
There is something undeniably stylish about leather sofas! There are two looks to choose from: grand and vintage or clean and modern, both have a sophisticated and expensive quality about them. As old leather sofas can still be very easy on the eye, a second hand leather couch can often be a wise purchase if you want that retro look. If you are creating a sleek, contemporary interior to your home then you’ll have plenty of new leather sofas to choose from. Leather corner sofas are a particularly hot trend at the moment.
Wipeable & Durable
Though fabric settees often come with removable covers, leather sofas are easier to keep clean. Whatever leather surface you choose, it can be simply wiped down with a damp cloth to remove any grubby fingerprints or spillages – ideal for young families or the clumsy! Plus, if looked after properly, leather sofas will outlive fabric sofas by many years. They are extremely durable purchases with leather being a hard-wearing material that can easily handle the wear and tear of day to day life.
When you think of leather sofas, you’re probably picturing a brown or black design. Stop right there! With the increasing in popularity of leather sofas over the last few decades, furniture designers have gone wild and made sure there’s something to suit every colour scheme and taste! Whether you want a simple beige number or a bright leather design, it’s all possible!
Though leather sofas are considered an extravagant purchase, there are now many affordable leather options to choose from. There are numerous types of real leather to choose from, such as: corrected grain, fine grain, double thickness, extra thick hide, full aniline and natural waxed hide – or if you want the leather look but can’t stretch to the real deal, you could always fake it with faux leather sofas.
