If you are looking for an upgrade for your living room, family room, or finished basement space, rich leather furniture is a classic, luxurious option.
Leather fabrics have been around for thousands of years for use as clothing, tents, and more. Arabian rulers were known to have thrones made of leather, and in Roman society, leather lounge chairs were commonly seen.
The amount of work that goes into making leather made it an expensive piece and was very often a symbol of status.
As years went by, there was more and more interest in leather. In the 1960s, leather couches became a huge trend and leather began appearing in different colors to fit various décor styles.
Types of Leather
After the cowhide is split into layers, the surface layer is called the top grain. It is the thickest and most durable part of the hide.
Corrected grain leather is top grain leather that has been sanded and embossed to create a natural grain pattern.
Full-grain leather is also part of the top grain leather family. This type is left in its natural state, is of the highest quality, and has limited availability.
This leather is stiff and not as durable. It is generally used in parts of furniture that aren’t as visible.
This is blended leather consisting of bonding materials and shredded authentic leather. Once blended, it’s layered into sheets on fiber backing.
This type of leather looks a lot like genuine leather, but it’s not. It’s cost-effective, making it a good option for people that like the look of leather but don’t have the budget for it.
Leather furniture is a stunning addition to any home. Its classic look allows it to be easily integrated into different home décor styles and preferences. Not to mention, leather is extremely durable and will last for many years!
Leather and leather pieces can be found on couches, chairs, seat cushions, track arms sofas, Chesterfield sofas, sleeper sofa beds — even things like bolster pillows. The material is perfect for a wide range of homes: those with Western decor or homes decked out in mid-century modern stylings.
Leather upholstery is a great choice for those who want a material that will withstand wear and tear and last for many years. Leather sofas can be passed down from one generation to the next. And if it’s dyed, as in aniline leather, it can be wonderfully beautiful to look at.
