While they can be expensive leather sofas are amazing pieces of furniture that often denote status. But you can find an affordable leather sofa almost anywhere. They are easy to maintain and can carry value over their lifespan. Leather sofas fit almost any décor and because they are breathable they react to the conditions of the weather so that you are always comfortable. In other words, they stay cool in the heat of summer and warm in the cold weather of winter.
There really is nothing like the classic leather sofa to add style and elegance to a room. It’s the most popular style of leather. The brown leather of a Chesterfield sofa has high arms that connect to the back at the same level and has studs set into the leather for decoration but this also acts to secure the leather to the frame of the sofa. It’s a plush sofa that will pull you to sleep given a minutes rest. Probably the most popular leather sofa today is made by Natuzzi, but the classic is still by far the most demanded.
If you can’t afford a true sofa made of real leather there are polyurethane fabrics that are made to look like leather. It lacks in durability but can’t be detected as phony by the naked eye. Some sofas are made with this material while using real leather in the cushions and pillows. These are a bit less expensive than a sofa made entirely of real leather so you can still get the effect of real leather in those areas.
For the modern furniture lover, Natuzzi leather is a high quality aniline fabric. This is leather that has been dyed to soften the hide and help it breathe more. The only down side to this process is that the dye may not be consistent on the fabric and some areas may not be as deeply colored as others. Finished leather looks more natural and is also easier to maintain. The finish is more consistent than the aniline process.
