After a long day at work, there are few things better than coming home and sinking into a leather chair or couch. At Watson's, we know there's something undeniably luxurious about leather furniture, and it’s a quality that permeates throughout the entire house. If you weren’t sure just how it does that, we’ve got a quick list of factors you should consider.
5 Benefits of Leather Furniture
1. Adds Sophistication
Leather furniture has always conjured up a sense of sophistication and poise. Part of this is probably because we all know it costs more than fabric-upholstered furniture; when we see leather, we know we’re looking at a thoughtful investment.
2. Stays Comfortable
As leather furniture ages, it softens, becoming more supple and comfortable. Even if it seems cozy enough at the time of purchase, you’ll be pleasantly surprised years later.
3. Provides Long-Lasting Style
There’s no doubt about it: Leather furniture is durable. It takes a lot to pierce through it. It’s certainly something that can’t be done quickly by accident. And as for scratches, those can be easily be buffed out.
4. Cuts Down on Maintenance
Although leather does require occasional cleaning and conditioning, its frequency is much lower than that of fabric-upholstered furniture. This may be because it’s relatively stain-resistant; as long as you wipe up any spills as soon as possible, nothing will seep through.
5. Minimizes Allergies
Furniture that's upholstered in fabrics like cotton, canvas, or wool has a tendency to trap allergens and various odors. Since leather is made from animal hide, it has a vastly different construction and doesn't attract and retain dust, pet dander, and pollen.
