For over 40 years they have been building superior leather sofas and chairs. Leathercraft offers hundreds of choices in top grain premium leathers and fabrics that offer a picture-perfect balance. Leather Furniture not only brings your room together but it brings families together.
Genuine leather and full-grain leather last longer than faux leather and other leather substitutes.
If maintained properly, the leather furniture should last 10–15 years or more.
Depending on the quality or type of leather used, the surface of the leather can be hard to puncture or tear.
Wear and tear are less likely to show and will contribute to the patina, the slow aging process of genuine leather made products.
Top grain cowhide will give you the best wear.
The frame should be made with kiln-dried hardwoods such as maple, birch, alder, oak, beech, or poplar to provide the needed strength and durability to the furniture. Soft woods like pine, plywood, and wood that is not kiln-dried are not recommended because they are not good for durability and often contain moisture.
The interlocking corners should be reinforced with wooden corner blocks, glued, and either bolted or screwed into place. The three main ways the wood parts should be joined is either finger joint, double dowelled, or mortise and tenon.
The Major Benefits of Owning a Classic Leather Sofa
The strength of real leather and how the leather sofa or leather sectional sofa is constructed gives it a long lasting durability. The best leather is genuine top-grain leather. Faux leather isn't very durable in comparison and vinyl/bonded leathers deteriorate in a short span of time making them a waste of money. As long as the genuine leather is maintained well and kept away from sharp objects (just as you should a cloth sofa) and direct sunlight exposure, the leather sofa will last for a very long time. In fact, leather is so reliable that it can outlast at least three to four fabric sofas in the same span of time.
If you have pets or children, then it is recommended to go for the pigmented leather since it has an excellent protective coating, is tough to puncture, and is very easy to clean/care for. Another type of leather recommendation is to get protected aniline since it will have a protective coat added. This allows you to have the best of both worlds, have your pets and your luxurious leather sofa.
The type of leather used, type of inner coil suspension, and the type of wood used to make the frame are what give your leather sofa that long-lasting lifespan. The quality of a classic leather sofa is what makes it a good investment. Aniline is the most recommended for top-quality leather furniture, especially on a classic leather sofa. For those who need something that can be a little more stain resistant try semi-aniline or protected aniline, this type has an added protective coating that seals it and prevents staining.
Whether you have a black leather sofa, a brown leather sofa, or a white sectional sofa next to your coffee table and other modern furniture in the living room or family room, there are great ways to decorate them and make them look even better.
Here is your one-stop shop for interior design color recommendations for each color of leather furniture:
Black Leather Furniture
Colors that work best with black leather furniture are light blues, steel blues, reds, oranges, light grays, whites, and other bright or soft colors. For a soft-looking room, use light colors like creams or light greens. For a bold contrast use white.
If you are looking for a color that you want to stand out against the black, go for reds, oranges, yellows, and light blues. Use two colors on accessory pillows to contrast the darkness of the leather.
