The Benefits of a Leather Couch

Making decisions about your living room furniture can be tough, especially as if it is something that is likely to be a long term investment, like your sofa.

Considering that such purchases are normally pricey and will live in your home for years, it is important that you consider numerous factors before deciding on your final purchase.

One of the key decisions you will make when it comes to your couch is what material you should choose for it. Sovereign Interiors has the option of animal hide versus fabric, but choosing between this two can be a tough decision to make, yet ultimately there are many benefits of going with the former.

It will last

You might be discouraged by the initial hefty price tag that comes with leather, but this price will pay off in the long term. This is because the material will usually last much better than fabric over the years, as it can take a lot more wear and tear.

Leather also ages well, so you won’t have to worry about getting a new couch because your current lounge furniture is looking old. You will probably save a lot more over the years if you invest in a quality, leather couch!


Retains its appearance

Unlike fabrics which can become stained or faded over the years, animal hide retains its appearance, which is part of why it will last. The method used to dye this natural material makes the colour more resistant to fading over the years, which may cause your couch to lose its vibrancy.

With leather, it is likely that your sofa will retain its tone and can avoid looking aged or faded. This long-lasting factor is favourable for a piece of furniture you’ll likely have for years to come!


Easy to maintain

Leather is not as easily affected by unfortunate accidents such as the spillage of food or drink. The durable material is also less prone to rips or damage.

Damage control is a lot easier than with fabric sofas, which is likely to soak in any stain you leave on it with ease. You can easily maintain an animal hide couch by wiping over it with a damp cloth.


Saves cost

It is estimated, when properly maintained, a seat made of animal hide can last up to four times longer than one made of fabric. You will get a lot more use if you go for the former option!

It is a lot of trouble buying a seat for your lounge room, so it is important that you don’t regret your decision or end up having to buy another after just a couple of years.

The durability of leather makes it a more sustainable option for your living room and for your wallet! Taking care of it is fairly easy so you can enjoy a durable, long-lasting couch with minimal fuss.

At the end of the day, it is up to you which you go for! Getting the opinions of everyone who will be using the sofa and considering your personal preferences will enable you to pick something you are happy with.
