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.
Leather Looks Nicer: Though durability may be a hallmark of leather furniture, the material has a reputation for adding elegance and sophistication to a room. No matter what color dye is used, leather makes the room look nicer than a patterned upholstery. While leather may cost more than upholstered sofas, its durability and chic look make it well worth the cost.
The advantage of a sectional sofa is that it is available in different parts that, when put together, can give your home a special shape. Of course, to give your home a diversified look every now and then, it would be advisable to segregate the sectional sofa to stand alone as individual sofas. Most of the sectionals available nowadays are sleek and can be used in about ten configurations in a room. This thus makes it quite easy to plan the interior of the room. Of course, when buying a sectional sofa, it is necessary for you to keep in mind whether or you will be in the same place you are in now, in the future. This is because smaller proportions always make usage of the sectional sofa in a new apartment easy.
The other sofa option that is real popular in the sectional is the sleeper sofa. This is great for when guests stay over and you do not have a guest room. Just pull out the bed and you are good to go. The sleeper sofa is also fun just to pull out sometimes when having a movie night.
Covering Your Cushions:The fabric that you choose for the upholstery slipcover and casings for your cushions will be the major style decision that you make. It will also be a major factor in deciding how long your new investment will last. Among the durable, natural fabrics that you can choose are cotton, wool, linen and leather. Among the synthetics, olefin is one of the most versatile fibers available. You can find olefin upholstery fabrics in weaves that mimic nearly any woven fabric - that are wash and wear easy when it comes to care. Take the extra trouble to make sure that your slipcovers and the covers for your cushions are removable so that they can be easily dry-cleaned or machine washed.
