If you’re looking for furniture that can endure the activity of a high energy family and the family pets, you should definitely consider leather sofas, recliners and accent chairs. While leather may initially cost a little more than other fabric upholstery, its durability makes it a wise investment. Leather furnishings are equally attractive in a casual or elegant décor.
Benefits of Leather
Unlike most upholstery, leather doesn’t harbor dust, pet dander and allergens. It’s resistant to spills and dirt. That can ease your stress when kids and pets pile up on your leather sofa to watch TV or nap. Leather does something most people wish they could do, it gets better with age. Over time, leather becomes softer and more flexible.
Accessorizing Leather Furniture
When you browse through the selection of leather sofas and chairs at a furniture store in Gilbert Az, you may be surprised at the diverse selection of colors and styles you have to choose from. Ideas may begin swirling around in your head when you think about the many ways you can accessorize your leather furniture. Leather upholstery is the perfect background for pillows and throws. It pairs well with animal print pillows, brilliantly colorful pillows, Indian print blankets or throws and nature themed material. Textures ranging from fuzzy pillows to silk throws look lovely against a leather background.
Animal print rugs, braided rugs and modern or contemporary style rugs beautifully complement leather furniture. You’ll want to be sure to select rugs that are as family-friendly as your furniture.
Décor trends change frequently and you may want to change your décor occasionally to keep up with those trends. Buying new furniture to accommodate those changes is not financially feasible. Leather furniture has the unique ability to transition through multiple décor changes. That can be considered a good thing since the family probably will not want to part with their favorite, cozy, comfortable chair.
