More Comfortable Than Upholstery: Upholstery provides a thin barrier between those using the furniture and the structure of the cushion. Over time, the shape of the couch will change and the materials will break down. This leads to an uncomfortable, lumpy couch that no one wants to sit on. As leather sofas age, the material becomes more comfortable. Rather than breaking down, these sofas conform to body weight more readily. In fact, many owners note that their older couch feels nicer than it did when it was brand new.
The first thing about a leather sofa that sets it above and apart from other types of sofas is its inherent durability. Leather itself is just plain tough. Whether it's cow hide, alligator, shark, or some other exotic hide, the resulting leather is simply going to last for years and years. It takes a real beating and just gets more charming as a result. The natural texture and coloration of leather lends itself to longevity because it doesn't show normal use as a defect. Rather, any occasional sign of wear just adds to the charm. This is a generalized statement and, of course, there are exceptions. Some leather is very smooth and will show blemishes. A leather sofa isn't immune to wear and tear, but it does excel what other fabric options will do.
If you are in the market for a new living room or family room set, there are a few options on the market for you to consider. The most obvious is a couch, a love seat and a chair set. Other options include a hide-a-bed or recliner instead of a traditional couch or chair. Another great option are sectional sofas. A sectional is composed of multiple sections (hence, \"sectional\") of furniture, that fit together to form one large piece of furniture. Let's take a look at the different pieces available, the purpose they serve and why a sectional may suit your life.
Food spills, pet mess, chewing gum and the like represent more difficult tasks for the DIY cleaning enthusiast. These types of stains are easily mashed into the fabric of the upholstery, making them harder to clean, even by a professional home cleaning company with the proper chemicals and equipment. The best thing to do with these more heavy duty spills is to remove as much of the mess as possible without further soiling your upholstery or pushing it deeper into the fabric.
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.
