9 Reasons to Choose Leather Furniture

It’s true that when you decide to furnish your home with leather furniture you are making an investment. But this is an investment that pays dividends. Leather reigns supreme for many reasons, all of which add up to comfort, style, aesthetics, and more. Perhaps this is why leather is both the most traditional and most frequently chosen material for furniture. Below are reasons why this unique material is a perennial favorite.

1. Durability: This means that you can get years of use from your investment in leather furniture. Leather retains its strength and durability for decades and its looks only get better with age.
Longevity: Durability’s partner. With the right care and maintenance, a quality leather sofa can last for many years.

3. Comfort: Leather adjusts to your body as you sit or lie upon it, so it is always nice and welcoming. The material doesn’t break down, so you don’t get the sagging or drooping that can lower the comfort level.

4. Maintenance: Leather is easy to clean, it can be as easy as running a damp cloth over it once a week. Dry with a soft cloth and you are done. If needed, you can vacuum your leather furniture using the soft brush attachment before you wipe it down. You should condition your leather sofa every 6-12 months with a good leather conditioner. Make sure to ask your Baer’s furniture representative any questions you have about cleaning your leather furniture.

5. Luxury: Naturally elegant, leather furniture carries an air of luxury and class more than any other material.

6. Versatile: It never goes out of style and can fit into almost any type of d├ęcor. Regardless of style or color, your leather sofa work with your design. Its look can easily be changed with accessories such as pillows and throws.

7. Kid Friendly: See durability and maintenance above. Yes, these features make it kid-and-pet friendly. Stains wipe off and it is resistant to tearing.

8. Hypoallergenic: Leather doesn’t accumulate pet dander, dust mites, and other allergens, unlike fabric.

9. Budget: Your investment in good quality leather furniture will last for years. Its color and shape lasts longer than fabrics, and wear and tear adds to its appeal.

Both traditional and contemporary leather furniture is available. If you go the traditional route, a leather couch will add elegance and luxury to your space. Add brass and gold accessories for a regal look. If contemporary is more your style, pick one of the more vibrant colors such as red or purple to get the impact that is hallmark of modern design. No matter what style you choose, each leather piece is unique in nature and will add value, beauty, and comfort to your home.

What Mattress Style Suits You? Revolutionary Technology Can Help You Find the Perfect Memory Foam Mattresses

Getting a good night’s rest can depend on many factors: your stress level, the room’s temperature, or your mattress. To really get a good night’s sleep, you need a memory foam mattress that gives you the support you need. A mattress that is too firm can take your spine out of alignment, one that is too soft won’t give you proper support. Both of these situations can result in you waking up achy and sore. That’s why a memory foam mattress might be the perfect option for you.

How Do You Know If You Are Sleeping on the Right Mattress?

If you wake up and feel lower back pain that goes away in 15 to 30 minutes with a little stretching, you are sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t give you the right support. When you sleep on the right mattress, you feel no pressure, it’s almost as if you are floating on clouds. A memory foam mattress conforms to your body as you sleep, giving it the support it needs, right where it needs it.

Mattress Testing Technology

You could test many mattresses by lying on them to see if they are right for you. This entails lying in several positions for at least 15 minutes each. Why 15 minutes? That’s about how long it takes your body to relax. And remember, you’d have to do this on every mattress you try in every store you visit. Even if the carry the same brand, the mattress can be slightly different. 

However, there is technology to help you make your decision. The patented Kingsdown bedMATCH diagnostic system uses information about how you sleep, 18 statistical measurements, and more than 1,000 scientific calculations to help you find a mattress that will provide you with optimal support and pressure relief.

First, a Baer’s sales associate will ask you questions about how you sleep: on your back, side or stomach. They’ll also ask if you have any specific issues: neck pain, back pain, and so on. Once this information is entered into the bedMATCH diagnostic system, you lie down on the bedMATCH test bed for approximately 3 minutes. This is where the science and statistics come in.

Using these measurements and your information, bedMATCH determines how much support you need from your mattress. It then gives you color-coded recommendations with a list of every mattress available from Baer’s that is in line with your profile. You can then lie down on each hybrid or memory foam mattress on the list and choose the one you like best.

Visit the Baer’s Furniture showroom near you to try this revolutionary technology and find the mattress that will give you the perfect night’s rest you crave. Follow Baer's Furniture on Twitter for more design tips. Read about the Spirit of Life Dinner in honor of Baer's Furniture.
