When it comes time to change your furniture, you should consider putting leather in your home. Not only is leather durable and long lasting, but also it creates an ambience of warmth and style. Of all the upholstery materials known to man, leather is by far the strongest, making it an excellent choice when it comes to pets and children.
Another nice thing about leather furniture is that with proper care, it will last for years and years. When looking at leather furniture such as a sofa, try to choose pieces where the seats have a zipper access so the seat portion can be taken in and cleaned. Choosing the right leather sofa can be tricky since there are so many different choices. Considering that there are typically more than 50 types of leather (ostrich, cow, pig, etc.) and more than 400 colors, you can be sure that you will find exactly the type of furniture you want for your home. To give you an idea of the type of styles you will find, consider the following:
- Mesa This design is distressed, similar to nubuk. If you like a rustic, western style look for your home, you will love this particular style. The full grain, pure aniline leather has a worn appearance that you would expect for this type of décor. The only drawback to the Mesa is that it is not as stain resistant as other styles.
- Phoenix This wonderful style has top grain hides that have been slightly corrected. This aniline dyed leather has a pigmented top coat, which is perfect to keep the color consistent. The special process helps the leather to last and it makes it more durable. The nice thing about this style is that the leather is washable, comes in 15 colors, and it is affordable.
- Santa Fe Made from full grain hides to be double dyed or shrunken, you will find that the look produced with this leather is a natural naked, or a simple dye. The appearance is smooth and clean, making it an excellent choice for a room that is more on the formal side.
- Sedona This style is made from full grain, pure aniline leather that is known for being as soft as butter. The dying process includes using Scotchgard so that spills and stains are repelled. The Sedona style is special is that only 5% of all hides are used. If you want elegance and high quality, this would be the style to choose.
- Tucson This style of leather is made from full grain and semi aniline. The mild, two-toned savage effect creates an expensive look. This design is very soft and supple, while still being durable and resistant.
