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.
Resists Fading: While the color of leather will change over time due to normal wear and tear, it won't fade when set in front of a sunny window. While the material will need regular conditioning and cleaning to resist sun damage, the material won't lose its color.
Many an antique leather armchair, lamb's wool cushion or mohair chaise longue has fell victim to Do-It-Yourself upholstery cleaning. In an ideal world, we wouldn't make such a mess of things, but it's bound to happen. Think of the time you spilled Spaghetti Bolognese all over the carpet because you didn't want to miss X-Factor and there was no television in the dining room. A few simple home cleaning tips will go a long way to not ruining your furniture in the spirit of DIY upholstery cleaning.
Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated? If your old sofa frame is still serviceable, but the upholstery is showing a little wear and tear, updating it could be just a matter of a few yards of fabric and some comfy new cushions. If you were smart enough to choose a sofa with a cushion back and seat, you can end up looking like you have a whole new couch by the time you're finished. Here's how to spiff up your old sofa with new upholstery and cushions.
Cushions and Style Decisions: If your couch has an attached back, your options for restyling will be a bit more limited. Still, you can make a big difference with new fabric covering for the upholstery and a change of style for the seating cushions. It can be as simple as choosing slipcovers for the couch and cushions in a livelier, updated style, or - if you're daring - you can go as far as cutting away the attached pillow back and replacing it with cushions.
