If you're like most consumers and looking to buy leather furniture, you may have some doubts about how leather differs from fabric.
So, Canada-based premium leather furniture company Levoluxe confronts and explores some of the most common myths and misperceptions about leather furniture.
Here are some facts that will help you make your next purchase in complete confidence.
Myth: Leather furniture doesn't last long!
Fact: The fact is that leather furniture is something you buy for a lifetime. Since leather is a natural product, aging brings out its natural hide, making it even more beautiful over time.
Myth: Leather furniture is difficult to maintain!
Fact: Leather is easy to care for. Just use a conditioner every 6-12 months and wipe up spills as they occur with a clean cloth. Avoid using normal cleaning supplies like soaps, detergents, etc.
Myth: Leather furniture is easily damaged!
Fact: Unless your dog thinks your new leather couch is a chew toy or your cat thinks it's a scratching post, your leather furniture is as safe as any other furniture in the house. For more peace of mind, select a protected leather for your furniture, which has an extra finish applied to it. This helps protect the leather so pets and kids can sit on the couch with none of the usual worries.
Myth: Leather furniture is either too cold in winter or too hot in summer!
Fact: Leather seats in a car do get hot in summer and cold in winter. But for leather furniture indoors, you'll find that it warms to your body heat in the winter. In the summer, since it's natural and can breathe, leather stays pleasantly cool. Just keep it out of the sun since it is hard on the color.
