Luxurious leather upholstery has been used throughout the ages to make clothing, fashion accessories, car interiors, and furniture. Leather provides a timeless look that never goes out of style. For that, and many reasons, contemporary leather furniture is popular and highly desired. The numerous qualities that leather has, makes it an extremely sought-after finish for modern furniture such as leather beds, sofas, armchairs and dining chairs. Read below for everything you need to know before buying leather furniture.
Benefits of Leather Furniture
Furniture is available in a wide variety of natural or synthetic finishes. Even with all of the options consumers have, leather remains one of the most popular upholstery choices for furniture. Leather is often the right match for your home because it has benefits that not many other coverings have. A few of our favorite benefits of modern leather furniture include:
Italian leather is known for its durability and for holding its amazing quality. Its strong, durable, and flexible nature makes it resistant to punctures and tears. There are many different qualities and types of leather to choose from. At Anima Domus, we source furniture made with only fine Italian leathers from Italy’s top tanneries. Quality leather furniture tends to improve with age and can last a lifetime.
Hearing that leather is strong and firm makes it sound like you’ll be sitting on a piece of wood, but leather is actually very comfortable. When you first purchase a modern leather sofa the leather may be a bit firm, but with time and use, it becomes softer and provides maximum lounging comfort –while keeping its shape and strength.
Since leather is not a textile, it doesn’t gather dust mites, pet dander, mold and allergens in its pores. While you may want to wipe and clean the leather with appropriate leather products for aesthetic purposes and durability, you don’t have to stress about it accumulating unwanted irritants for your health. For this reason, leather furniture is considered hypoallergenic, making it perfect for people with allergies.
The great thing about leather is how pet friendly it is. Small scratches caused by cats or dogs can often be obscured with leather polish and pet fur is easy to wipe off as it doesn’t cling to the sofa, simply brush it off. Dirty paws can also be wiped and cleaned rather easily.
There are two sides to this, and both are beneficial aspects of owning leather furniture! Have you ever heard someone talk about their new car and say something like, “I love it, it has that new leather smell.” Most people love the scent of leather and we firmly agree! The other side to the “smell” benefit is that leather doesn’t absorb odors. This allows you to control the scent of your space.
Contemporary leather furniture offers an appealing aesthetic to any room. Depending on the elements you choose, you can add depth of texture and unique combinations, as leather pairs beautifully with other finishes or other design elements in the room. Don’t be scared to pair a modern leather sofa with fabric armchairs or vice-versa! Leather is a unique covering that blends well in almost any space. History has proven that leather is timeless and will continue to be in style for many years to come!
