Leather is generally stain-resistant and can often be cleaned with a damp cloth – hurray for easy cleaning! Considering it’s vulnerability to scratches, this might be a red flag if you have fur-children that like to jump up on the furniture. As long as you take good care of your leather sofa, it can last a very long time.
Plus, leather sofas are hypoallergenic and don’t harbour dust mites, pet dander, and other allergens as easily as fabric does. We can hear the allergy sufferers everywhere cheering.
When it comes to colour options, fabric sofas often have much more variety in terms of tones, colours, and patterns. It’s not uncommon to find fabric sofas in any colour of the rainbow and then some.
Leather is a bit more limited when it comes to available colours and designs. You’ll mostly find browns, greys, and some whites. This doesn’t mean the colourful leather pieces don’t exist! People everywhere are getting bolder with their design, and the industry is responding. If you’re dead-set on leather and have a colour in mind, you may just need to look a little harder, or go custom!
