Myths and Facts about Leather Furniture

Are you planning on purchasing a new sofa set? Has your husband had his eye on a leather recliner chair? Are you hesitant to get leather furniture because you’ve heard lots of bad things about it? Well, fear not. Classy Home is here to assuage your fears and give you the facts about leather furniture.

Many people think that leather furniture doesn’t last a long time. Where this rumor came from I have no idea but it decidedly untrue. A lot of leather furniture is well made and since leather is a natural material it ages well. It gets a natural sort of patina that just makes the furniture more beautiful.

You might have also heard that leather is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. While this is true upon the first contact it’s not entirely accurate. In the winter, leather absorbs body heat quickly and warms up. In the summer, leather, again being a natural material, breathes and won’t heat up so much that it burns. You need to keep it out of direct sunlight. It’s also a very absorbent material. It is very comfortable in the summer because it soaks in perspiration which makes it the best seat in the house on a hot day.
