Common Concerns About Leather Furniture

Our team can help you learn all about the St. Louis leather Flexsteel furniture that we offer in our store.

There seems to be a lot of mystery behind leather furniture. We here at Peerless Furniture want to help uncover some of that mystery to help our customers better understand the furniture we know and love. Over the years we've been asked many questions about our leather furniture. We decided to answer a few of those questions here today. 


Because there is so much mystery around leather furniture many people believe that it is super high maintenance. This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, it may be easier to take care of than many other fabrics. It's easy to clean because for most messes you can simply wipe it down with a soft cloth. They even make protected leathers that can resist stains which is great for homes with pets or small children. 


In case you've never seen real leather furniture, there are some types of leather that come with markings on them. These markings come from scars or other marks that were on the live animal. Some people think that if their leather furniture has these markings it will be weaker than other leather. This is not true at all. Any of the brands that you find at Peerless Furniture wouldn't use truly damaged leather to make their furniture anyway. 


There are some people out there who have asked about those same markings we talked about above wondering if they are a mark of low quality. These markings are actual indicators that the leather you are purchasing is real and not some kind of fake blend made to look like leather. When the leather has no markings its more of an indicator that they've done a lot of work to the fabric to cover up its quality.


Of course, if you have any questions about the leather found at Peerless Furniture you can stop by our store. Our team can help you learn all about the St. Louis leather Flexsteel furniture that we offer in our store. We know you'll love what you find.
