Upscale Appeal Leather Furniture Pieces
Leather furniture adds a classic, upscale appeal to any home. Buying leather furniture is a wise investment to make since leather is a durable material that suits both home and office decor. Leather is more expensive than traditional upholstery but can last a good deal longer. It even improves with age. The best type of leather is full or top grain, which means it is also the most expensive of all leathers on the market. Since this particular type of leather has very few flaws, there is no need to process it. As a result, the leather is soft and smooth. Natural dye, or aniline, is added to the leather in order to enhance its appearance. A less expensive leather is called corrected grain leather. This type of leather undergoes extensive treatments in order to improve its appearance. Corrected grain leather is not as soft or supple as a top grain leather.
Leather furniture care is easy, provided you look after, maintain, and clean the upholstery regularly. As this upholstery is made from natural hide, it is sensitive and needs to be kept free from fungus, dust, stains, and scratches. Cleaning your leather furniture depends on the type of the leather. Aniline leather, aniline plus leather and nubuck leather are the three kinds of leather that are used often. The first two types have wrinkles on them and are soft. Thus they need to be handled with extreme care and caution. The third is smoother in texture but a little velvety.
