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.
