About Distressed Leather Sofa
The great thing about leather is that the more you use it, the better it looks and feels. Leather sofas have been a perennial style favourite for this very reason ? shiny and squeaky new when you first buy them, then butter-soft and rustic after a couple of years? use.
A distressed leather sofa says nonchalant style and homespun comfort, so it is not surprising that many people are seeking to bypass the brand-new leather phase and purchase pre-owned or artificially distressed leather sofas instead.
A distressed leather sofa should look comfy but not shabby. Check for rips or tears in the leather, shiny spots from overuse, and irreparable staining before you buy. Well known brand names such as Laura Ashley, Parker Knoll and John Lewis can offer peace of mind that your sofa is well made and durable.
Most leather sofas come in a classic brown or mahogany colour, although some antique models are made in distinctive green leather. White or beige sofas were popular during the 1980s, and can add a flash of colour to a darker room. In the 1990s, brightly coloured leather flooded the market with varying shades of success. A deep red leather sofa or vintage royal blue will suit most living rooms and studies, while pinks and purples may be better suited to more vibrant homes.
Due to the size and weight of a sofa, be aware that you may have to collect your distressed leather sofa, or pay substantial freight rates.
