The Lowdown on Leather and Fabric Sofas

Buyers Guide / June 1,2013

The choice of whether to buy a leather or fabric sofa needs to be carefully considered. Leather sofas are often favoured because they create a modern, clean and sophisticated image and are easy to care for. In contrast, countless colour and pattern combinations are available for fabric sofas and it is usually quite possible to find a fabric sofa to compliment new or existing decor.

Most leather sofas can be kept clean by simply wiping with a damp cloth and, because leather is so durable, it can last for many years - considerably longer than fabric - if it receives proper care. Leather is often favoured because it provides a contemporary, sophisticated look. Different varieties of leather also exist to comply with different budgets and lifestyles. Although fabric sofas can help to create a warm, inviting and cosy look and can be found in different textures and with different colours and patterns, they are rarely as durable as leather. Fabric sofas can easily be stained if food and drink is spilled on them.
