A leather armchair is a commanding and elegant presence in any living room or reading nook. This versatile and durable material only looks better with age too, adding an element of luxury in any style.
Wipe down with a slightly damp cloth and avoid using any cleaning products. You can then dry off with a towel or dry cloth. Once a year or so, you can rub down the leather surfaces with a special leather conditioner which will keep it soft and supple and extend the lifespan of any leather product.
Leather is so good for armchairs because it has a tough and durable quality that gives it timeless charm. Leather also ages well, even when heavily used, which means an investment in leather can outlast other fabrics.
There is no set timescale but with the right care and attention, a leather armchair could easily last decades without looking old or tired. The beauty of leather is that with the right care and conditioning, it will even look better the older it gets.
