We all want to think that everyone is honest and that if a business has an A+ BBB rating then they must be on the up, right? Well that is not always the case. I just found myself spending my extra time trying to locate interior shutters for a room in my home. I decided to purchase them online because with work, kids, grandchildren and the dogs who has time to go around looking. This is not unusual because I buy most things online. So, I began a project that ends up taking way too long!
Almost every day our phone rings with consumers having issues with seems splitting, pillows loosing shape, leather cracking and cushions sagging.

They bought their leather furniture elsewhere and call us for help with problems they are having now after the fact.
First things first, the smaller the swatch the darker the color. Looking at leather swatches is similar to viewing a paint swatch at the paint store. When you view it in a small swatch sample size the color will appear darker than it will actually appear on your wall. Try a sample on your wall and watch it lighten up. So the small leather swatch you are looking at will be a few shades lighter when placed onto the frame for making your leather sofa or loveseat. When choosing a color for your new leather furniture set take a look at the colors. View them in daylight and dark in your home to see how well they blend with what your have now. If this is the starting point in your room that’s even better. Either way always choose a color you like a lot. Well-made leather furniture will become a family heirloom, so you see why your color choice is so important.
Brown leather still dominates, but other colors are moving up. Leather suppliers try to keep the most popular shades of leather in stock for furniture manufactures. For years now these have been different variations of browns but as of late they are beginning to bring red and gray into the stocked inventory as retailers are seeing a study incline in sales of these colors. While no one is predicting that brown is about to be unseated from the top spot, many believe these alternative colors will continue to chip away at browns popularity.
