5 Reasons To Choose Leather

There are many wonderful types of furniture upholstery out there -- from ever-durable microfiber to comfortable cotton to luxurious suede. So why, with all of these options, should you consider leather furniture? Let’s take a quick look at five of our top reasons to choose leather!


  1. Easy To Clean. Leather’s smooth, natural surface makes it far easier to clean than most artificial fabrics. In fact, simply wiping it down with a damp cloth is usually sufficient to remove any buildup of dirt, dust, or stickiness -- though an occasional deep cleaning with a specially designed cleaning product is also a good idea.
  2. Super Comfortable. Let’s be real -- there’s nothing more relaxing than sinking into a nice leather sofa. Because leather “breathes” so well, it tends to stay nice and cool in the summer, warm and cozy in the winter, all while avoiding that feeling of stickiness that can affect other types of fabric in humid conditions.
  3. Unbeatably durable. Leather is hands down the most durable type of upholstery fabric out there. In fact, as long as you give your leather furniture the proper care that it deserves, you can actually expect your leather upholstery to improve with time as it ages and matures.
  4. Stylish and classic. One of the reasons why leather has been so perennially popular as an upholstery fabric is that it looks great in almost any context. From an ageless, homey look to a sleek and modern style, leather is capable of blending in (and even complementing) virtually any trend in style or design.
  5. More affordable than ever. Leather furniture is more affordable than ever before -- and if you don’t believe us, then just head over to Recliners.LA and check out our extensive collection of leather furniture, along with the tiny price tags accompanying these outstanding pieces!
