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 last piece you see with some sectional sofas are large ottomans. Since my experience shows that most people like to stretch out on a sofa, an ottoman allows this without taking up any more room on the sofa itself. This is a great way to expand the sitting space to seat more people.
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.
Better for Homeowners With Allergies: Upholstery holds dust, dirt, and allergens even when professionally cleaned. Since leather is non-porous, the dust and contaminants sit on top of the material. Getting rid of allergens is as simple as wiping the dust away with a microfiber cloth. There's no need to call a professional to steam-clean the sofa since allergens won't embed themselves in the cushions.
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.
