Top Three Reasons to Own a Leather Sofa

Peerless Furniture and Leather Gallery shares the top three reasons to own a high-quality leather sofa.

Do you love the look, feel and smell of real leather, but afraid it won’t stand up in an active household with pets? Well, think again! Let’s explore three of the top reasons that a leather sofa is the right choice for your home.

  •  Natural beauty: Real leather is a beautiful piece of material that gets better with age. Leather exudes luxury, class and success, and is perfect for any room in the house, whether it is a living room or study. Because most real leather furniture is sold in more neutral colors, it is timeless. Chances are, as you change your décor; the leather furniture will still look exceptional in your room.    

  • Durability: In fact, leather experts estimate that a leather sofa can last up to four times longer than a fabric couch. Because leather is tough and flexible it naturally resists punctures, tears, spills and dirt. The leather is dyed and absorbs into the material, which means the color doesn’t fade. Scuffs and wear areas will retain their color and strength. Don’t worry about tough cleaning either, leather furniture is easy to clean by just wiping it with a damp cloth.  

  •  Comfort: Perhaps the most important reason, especially for the person who spends most of their time on the couch, is comfort.  Unlike a fabric couch which loses its shape, fades or just looks tired and worn, a leather couch, because of its unique natural fibers and qualities will only get softer and suppler with time. Real leather breathes so it can dissipate heat and cold quickly, making the sofa comfortable year around. It also absorbs and releases moisture, so it never feels sticky or clammy.
