When it comes to investing in a leather sofa, you might have some concerns. Will the furniture hold up over the years? Is it suitable for a busy household with pets and kids? I live in a smaller apartment – can I still enjoy leather furniture?

Read on to learn more about the indulgent material, how it blends in with various lifestyles, and the proper ways to care for them.

Get to know the leather

Our leather sofas are made of top-grain leather, which is the top or outermost layer of cowhide. Buffed to reduce the visibility of imperfections, the leather is coated to provide greater resistance to stains and wears.

A two-toned effect is also applied to the surface of the sofa, creating the appearance of a lightly embossed, uniformed grain. This allows your leather furniture to take the spotlight even in the busiest areas of the home.

Made for everyone

Whoever said that leather furniture belongs only in larger homes or households without kids and pets has never been more wrong. Whether home is a cozy apartment for just you and a partner, or a larger space with an open plan and three toddlers, there’s a leather piece that’s made just for you.

Caring for your leather sofa

Leather furniture isn’t just for the grownups with an exquisite taste for luxe lounging. Stain- and wear-resistant, our leather sofas are family-friendly and made for everyone at home to enjoy.

However, to keep your leather looking as fresh as day one, here are some care tips to take note of.

  • Place your leather furniture away from direct exposure to sunlight to prevent fading and discoloration.
  • Food spills are inevitable, but when accidents happen, immediately blot the mess gently with a clean white cloth. Do not rub, as that could cause cracking and peeling, color transfer or rub marks.
  • Vacuum regularly using a brush attachment to clear dust and debris.
  • Keep sharp objects away. While leather is a durable material, it is still susceptible to deep scratches.
  • Be mindful of wearing dark or heavily dyed clothing that might cause dye transfer.
