Leather sofas are probably one of the most popular pieces of furniture for both households and businesses, and for many reasons. There are certainly lots of other options when it comes to coverings for furniture, but leather has stood the test of time, and continues to do so. Recently, I started wondering why I liked leather so much, and thought I'd explore some reasons why. See if any of my reasons ring true with you as well.
The first thing that comes to mind is my own preference for leather sofas over other types. For one thing, I can't picture actually being able to relax on something as awful as plastic or vinyl. Sticky, tacky, and weird seem to sum up what I think of those choices. Then there's wicker. Uh, no. I have no earthly idea what the appeal is to wicker as indoor furniture. I guess to me it just seems like something that belongs out on the porch or patio. And yes, I have actually been in homes where people have wicker sofas in their living rooms. I know, weird huh?
Then there's more traditional fabrics. Upholstery comes in so many colors, patterns, and textures that it is sort of difficult to generalize about these. However, on the whole, I just don't like upholstered sofas because they are hard to clean if they get spilled on, they easily snag and tear, and just don't last as long as leather sofas. So, by way of contrast to other options, leather stands out as a clear preference for me.
Also on the positive side,
