It’s time for a new year, and perhaps a new atmosphere! It can feel refreshing to rearrange the living room from time to time, but if you really want to change things up, try swapping out those worn out recliners with a set of brand new, leather sofas or chairs!


Many homeowners prefer leather upholstery because of its aesthetic appeal, but also for its benefits! If we take the time to properly care for leather, it can outlast our other furniture pieces- and look better, too.




Whatever you do, don’t do nothing! It’s up to us to make sure our leather receives the proper attention; without our care, we can dramatically decrease our furniture’s lifespan.




Did you know excessive exposure to sunlight can cause leather furniture to fade and dry out over time?  It’s true! Shielding your leather furniture from direct sunlight will reduce discoloration and help the material to hold in moisture.


Prevent permanent staining by cleaning up spills as quickly as possible. Make sure you have the correct upholstery cleaner on hand, and before using a new cleaning solution, perform a spot test on a hidden area of the furniture (the back or underside of a couch).




Do you remember how comfortable your sofa was on the day it was brought into your living room? The leather was likely smooth, even-toned, and flawless! There wasn’t single crack or tear in sight.


There are products available which are specially formulated to replenish and rejuvenate your leather furniture. Your sofa can remain just as smooth as it’s first day- with the proper, consistent care and conditioning.
