Sofas & couches - made of leather or fabric?

One of the most important pieces of furniture in a home is the sofa .

This is where you will collapse to quickly catch your breath after a long day at work. You can also keep your house guests happy at parties here. Therefore, when purchasing a couch, make sure that it not only complements your furnishings, but also fits your lifestyle.

The two main materials when purchasing home furnishings like a sofa are fabric and leather. If you are buying a sofa for the first time, you might find it difficult to weigh all the pros and cons. We will simplify it by breaking down the most important elements:

A leather sofa is the best option if durability is your top priority. They usually last longer. If you take good care of it, you can even keep it for decades.

If you do decide to get a fabric sofa, there are modern , high-quality ones that are made of synthetic microfiber. They are more durable than typical fabric sofas because they are stain-resistant. Both look fantastic, so both are good choices.

Just first choose the tone you want to create in your home. We have a large selection of leather and wood colors.

Leather sofas are quite practical because they are easy to maintain. To dust, simply use a regular feather duster or vacuum cleaner. In rare cases, you can clean it with a microfiber cloth.

Compared to leather sofas, fabric sofas require more frequent maintenance. To maintain its brand new and fresh look, you may need a handheld steam cleaner. In addition, if there are stains, you must carry out spot cleaning.

When it comes to comfort, a fabric sofa is unrivaled as it is warm, velvety and soft. Additionally, the fabric sofas in online furniture stores feel sturdy. Even after sitting for a long time, they remain dimensionally stable and do not sag. A leather sofa has a strong base but absorbs heat more quickly than a fabric sofa. During the warmer summer months, you may find yourself sweating at some point after sitting.

Although fabric sofas are more comfortable, buying a leather sofa also has its advantages. The fact that it is hypoallergenic is one of them. They are ideal for households with allergies as they do not collect dust or other pet hair.
