Why Leather Sofas?
Posted on February 23 2020
Leather is a really strong all rounder – hardwearing, smart looking and long lasting while fabric offers more color options, patterns and textures to play with.
Leather: Like wine, leather gets better with age. It develops character and becomes and become softer and more comfortable. Cheaper, thinner leather (such as nu-buck or aniline) are very absorbent – which spells trouble when spills occur
Fabric: You can choose anything, from bright geometric patterns, to subtle pastel floral. This makes it easy to select a style that fits with your own personal taste and room color scheme. Choose a fabric that’s textured or a multi-colored weave because they are much more serviceable for the home.
Style tip: Still can’t decide between the two? Then why not have the best of both worlds: a fabric sofa and a leather armchair or vice versa.
Step Three – Dress Up
A sofa shouldn’t dominate the look of the entire space - it needs to work in harmony with the rest of your room. A mix of different textures is the best way to pull a space together.
You can even update your look for guests with a generous scattering of cushions. Earn extra style points for playing with shapes – a mix of rectangular, square and round cushions keeps things interesting.
Occasional chairs are the perfect way to add the finishing touch to the room. You can be playful with upholstery and color in a way you wouldn’t do on a sofa.
