Shopping for a new sofa is exciting and sometimes confusing. It seems like there are a thousand choices out there and narrowing it down to the perfect sofa can seem quite daunting. You need to choose the right size, high or low back, loose or fixed cushions, and more. This leads us to the most commonly asked question when shopping for a sofa: leather upholstery or fabric upholstery.
Everyone has their preferences, some prefer leather and nothing else, others prefer fabric. They each have qualities that make them unique, so here are a few things to consider when choosing upholstery for your sofa.
Fabric upholstery creates a stylishly comfortable look in your family room. The Customizable Contemporary Sectional Sofa by Huntington House demonstrates the best qualities of fabric upholstered furniture. You can choose the pieces and upholstery that will complement your space perfectly.
A gorgeous, luxurious leather sofa is a classic choicer for the family room. The Foster Sofa by Bernhardt creates a warm, inviting room to kick back in. Perfect for entertaining or quiet evenings at home. Check out our Leather Buying Guide to learn more about what to look for when buying a leather sofa.
Weight these factors against the look you are going for. Do you want clean and classic? Timeless and sleek? No one knows the answer to these questions better than you do. Both materials have benefits and the one you choose will depend on your needs and your personal taste.
