A leather sofa is something special. At first glance it may not seem like much more than just another piece of common furniture, but it actually goes way beyond that. It is certainly one of the most popular choices that people make for home furnishings today. This article takes a look at some of the reasons this particular piece of furniture is so popular in so many homes across the country.
Better for Homeowners With Allergies: Upholstery holds dust, dirt, and allergens even when professionally cleaned. Since leather is non-porous, the dust and contaminants sit on top of the material. Getting rid of allergens is as simple as wiping the dust away with a microfiber cloth. There's no need to call a professional to steam-clean the sofa since allergens won't embed themselves in the cushions.
If, on the other hand, you've got a pillow-back sofa, you should stick with either the same number or a single cushion for the seating. In other words, if the back as three pillow sections, use either one or three cushions on the seat base. Anything else will give the sofa an oddly unbalanced feeling.
Cushions and Style Decisions: If your couch has an attached back, your options for restyling will be a bit more limited. Still, you can make a big difference with new fabric covering for the upholstery and a change of style for the seating cushions. It can be as simple as choosing slipcovers for the couch and cushions in a livelier, updated style, or - if you're daring - you can go as far as cutting away the attached pillow back and replacing it with cushions.
Consider the overall look of your house too while choosing a sofa. If you have traditional living room furniture, you will have to look for a sofa that fits into the overall ambiance. Also, the color of the sofa set should match the wall color. Many people go for the latest colors in sofa sets and regret their decision later. A bright check design may be all the rage today, but may become an object of ridicule in a few years. So, unless you want to change your sofa set with every season of fashion, you should select the color that suits your room's look. Usually, neutral colored sofas work best. You can always dress them with cushions in the latest prints to give the latest hot look in house decor.
