5 Ways Leather Furniture Enhances Your Home, Kentwood, Michigan

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

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.
