A leather sofa is something special. At first glance it may not seem like much more than just another piece of common furniture, but it actually goes way beyond that. It is certainly one of the most popular choices that people make for home furnishings today. This article takes a look at some of the reasons this particular piece of furniture is so popular in so many homes across the country.
Leather, thanks to its flexibility, can withstand years of wear and tear and still maintain a brand new look. Microfiber is susceptible to tears and frays in the long run. While leather sofas are easier to clean than a microfiber sofa, staining is a major problem with both. The chances of a microfiber sofa losing its charm and color after a few years is higher, compared to that of a leather sofa. In addition to that, both the sofas are subject to scratching, clawing and spilling, especially if you got kids and pets.
The second thing to think about when shopping for a leather sofa is the type of leather. If you are aware at all during your search, you will note that there are quite a few different textures and types of leather to choose from. The ostrich leather has that (in my opinion) irritating speckled or dappled look to it. I prefer something more smooth and even. Alligator and snake may make a great pair of boots, but when it comes to a leather sofa, these just aren't practical, or even available, for most. I suppose you could probably find one in this type of leather, but you would more likely have to commission a custom job to really get one made out of either one of these. And, for most people, this is entirely impractical and would be ridiculously expensive.
