There are many different types of leathers available in todays marketplace. Understanding leather is key to making the right decision when shopping for leather furniture. Here we will highlight some differences that will be important when selecting the right leather for your new leather sofa.
Fact: Corrected grain leathers will always price lower than pure aniline leathers. Corrected grain leathers almost always have protection and are cleanable unlike a pure aniline leather that does not.
Did you know that the Chesterfield leather sofa dates back to the 1700’s? Distinctive designed by the Earl of Chesterfield, Lord Phillip Stanhope. He lived in the East Midlands in England.
It is said that the Lord wanted somewhere for a gentleman to sit without putting creases in his suit. He was viewed as a trend setter with a love for fashion. Many admired his knowledge of both.
In the beginning these distinctive designed tufted sofas were reserved for the upper class. These iconic pieces of furniture were shown in many Victorian homes as well as the summer homes of the wealthiest.
When shopping for a new leather reclining sofa it is important to look at the construction details. Pay close attention to the origin of the mechanisms and warranties to name a few. There is a big difference between stationary leather sofas and reclining.
Leather sofas that recline can provide hours of unprecedented comfort and conversation. Whether you enjoy manual recline or power recline a leather sofa set offers the most in durability and wearability.
Spring brings fresh new looks! From pastel flowers, green leaves, and new pastel leather colors. As the earth tones of winter fade the new spring/summer looks take over. This is the time to give your living room a refresh.
Our living room is a place of gathering and enjoying friends and family. New looks for the warmer months are now in order. Out with winter tones and in with new cooler colors of spring. It is time to change from winter throw pillows and throws to a softer cooler look for the warmer months ahead.
All protected leathers have some sort of topcoat protection while pure aniline leathers are pure natural hides without any degree of protection.
Protected leathers are leathers that have either a top-coat or additives added during the dying process. When something is spilled on the surface it will bubble or bead up allowing you time to get something to wipe it up. These types of leathers are also easy to wipe clean with water.
In todays marketplace you will find a lot of different leather furniture brands. However, most are not made in the USA. Why is made in the USA important when shopping for leather furniture? Simple… comfort, durability and quality.

We all love leather furniture and with good reason, it is stylish, comfortable and it wears well. Nothing looks better in a man cave than handsome leather furniture. Nothing says man cave like a buttery soft black leather sofa or sectional. Your special place to escape should be unique just like you.
Black is not the only color of leather that will work well in a man cave. There are other masculine colors that can keep the look you want in your special hide-away. Although leather is essential for durability and easy cleaning. When there is a party there is a spill. Hopefully, your room is furnished with leather furniture because it can take it.
Married cover leather is a phrase used for leather furniture styles that are paired with certain leathers and frames. These are basic popular leather colors and popular furniture frames. Leather furniture manufactures offer these select styles in limited color choices for a reduced cost from the regular priced in line items. Although the styles are current the leathers are not always made available in the full line of leather choices. In other words, these select leathers can only be used as they are presented, no exceptions. Most of these leathers are not stocked in the United States they are only at the factory in China or Mexico.
There can be many reasons the color is fading on your leather furniture. Let us discuss a few! Even though leather furniture is the strongest and best material for upholstering sofas and chairs it can still be harmed when not taken care of properly.
Sunlight can cause leather to lighten and fade. This can be caused from direct or indirect sunlight. I have seen a leather sectional that faded over time from a skylight. Only the portion of the sectional where the light hit the seat cushion and back faded. It was in a second home in the mountains of North Carolina. You can only imagine the look on the owners faces when they came into the cabin after six months away and saw this kind of fading when no one was even there.
Leather furniture shopping in the comfort of your own home is safe and much more relaxing than driving from store to store only to find they do not stock the new leather sofa you are looking for.
