Buying a sofa is no easy task, especially with so many designs, colors, and sizes to choose from. This makes it hard to know where to start. Maybe a few of our tips will make your life easier and help you find the perfect sofa for your living room. And remember, buy sofa leather only after you have taken into account all the important criteria.

1. Types of Leather

Furniture stores offer hundreds of varieties of sofas for the home. They come in both classic and modern models. Many of the buyers are not oriented in the types of such furniture, so when they enter the store, they get lost and do not know what they need. The assortment includes furniture with different types of leather:

  • Semi-gloss (aniline) leather. It has a natural look and this type is more susceptible to damage.
  • Polygloss. It is more resistant and easy to clean, but less natural in appearance.
  • Nubuck. This is a soft leather with a suede-like texture. It is beautiful, but more prone to stains and scuffs.
  • Eco-leather. This is a man-made material created to mimic genuine leather. It is more affordable and usually easier to maintain. We recommend buy sofa leather only from natural materials; they are more durable and guarantee warmth.

2. Leather Grades and Quality

The quality of the material is also important to consider, with a range of grades available:

  • Smooth leather with a single-grain glossy surface.
  • Embossed leather with textured patterns such as crocodile, snake, or other animal skin.
  • Matte leather has a less shiny finish and usually has a more natural look.

3. Style and Design

Pattern matters. Natural texture cannot be uniform. If you look closely, you will not find the irregularity of pores and micro-cracks that characterize animal hide. And if to the touch the surface is smooth and devoid of roughness, in front of you’re most likely eco-leather. Or the technology of coloring was violated. In addition, the artificial substitute will seem cold when touched. A natural product retains heat longer.

4. Size and Fit

Be sure to check the size of the sofa before you buy it, as it should fit comfortably in the room, but it should not be too big or too small. Measure the area where you want to place the sofa and make sure it fits comfortably in that space.

As for the shape of the sofa, get to know more about the features of different types of upholstered furniture, you will save time on your search. So, of all the variety of options, we propose to pay attention to the main ones:

  • Straight classic. Standard rectangular model with a low back and armrests – the most popular option.
  • Angular. These models are placed in the corner of the room. This item consists of two parts: the base and the corner side.
  • Modular or sectional. These sofas are in demand because they are functional. They consist of several modules that can be installed both together and separately.

5. Color and Finish

If you want a sofa to play a starring role in your living room, move away from the usual colors and patterns and opt for an original shade. For example, rich navy blue or green is some of the hottest color schemes of the last few seasons. But in general, the color also depends on the interior design and your personal preferences.
