The big question: Leather or Fabric

Let’s paint the situation so that you can decide which type of Desired Living Furniture you were after, Leather or Fabric. You’re looking for a sofa to put in your living room, you have so much space you are building the living room and your sofa is the next piece of the puzzle. You have people over from time to time, out of all the rooms in the house you spend he most in your living room. But what do you choose, Fabric or Leather.

Well don’t worry we have you covered and will tell you what you need to know to make an informed decision.

  1. FABRIC is basically more comfortable. Now when considering the comfort of a sofa you consider the textile, the structure and the frames they all play a crucial role but when considering fabric it is always going to be more comfortable. Think of it this way, what happens to leather seats in a car, they become hotter much faster and when you sit on it for long periods of time you can feel it in a hot environment.
  2. LEATHER SOFAS when it comes to the durability of the colour on the sofa that you will put in your living room, leather sofas takes the cake. Now while both options have a vast array of colour options, fabric has a considerable amount more to choose from that’s not to say leather does not have a wide range of options. The negative with fabric is that the colour does tend to fade over time whereas leather is much longer lasting when put against the same strain as fabric sofas, usage and room conditions.
  3. LEATHER SOFAS are much easier to maintain, you may have caught our previous article on cleaning leather sofas and just how easy it is. But in case you did not, here is the run down, basically all you need to clean your leather furniture is a light dusting and vacuuming. Get a damp cloth to wipe the sides. Leather softer does wonders in preventing cracks in the leather.
  4. IT’S UP TO YOU, now let’s talk about the look of both choices. Now of course you would choose from a wide range of available colours for your Fabric or Leather couch while considering, does it match the rest of the room, do I like this colour? And also considering where you buy it as not every outlet has many to options but thankfully Desired Living has you sorted with over 40 options available and did I mention you can custom design your furniture. The look of leather couches such as the Apollo lounge set with its sleek design gives a sense of modernisation to your room, fabric is more contemporary, but as we said before it is up to you!
