Benefits of Leather Furniture
You don't live in a museum; your furniture needs to be able to meet the demand of everyday use while still retaining its great looks. While leather furniture can be more expensive than fabric covered furniture initially, leather will outlast fabric, making it the smarter long-term investment. Leather means quality!
Listed below are some of the benefits of leather over fabric:
- Last 4 times longer than fabric, on average.
- Is a natural material that "breathes" and never becomes tacky or sticky.
- Repels stains and is easy to clean.
- Warms up any room.
- Provides luxury and comfort.
Leather furniture is our specialty at Bayles, but we offer thousands of fabric choices in a wide variety of textures, colors, weaves, and price points. Most of our furniture pieces are available in both leather and fabric. Let us use our expertise to help you improve the look and feel of your home.
