Custom Made Leather Couches in South Africa
Are you looking for stylish, comfortable custom made leather couches that actually improves with age? Investing in leather, a durable and attractive material that comes in a variety of styles, colours and strengths, is one of the best things that you can do.
Here are things to keep in mind when going out furniture shopping, for custom made leather couches:
Leather is four times more durable than fabric, so there’s no need to worry should there be kids around.
Aniline leather is dyed in a drum, which allows the dye to completely soak through for a rich, deep colour.
No protective coatings are added, making it the softest and most expensive leather.
Semi-aniline (protected aniline) leather is also dyed in a drum and has a small amount of coating applied, giving it slightly better protection against stains and fading than aniline leather.
With regards to pigmented leather, colour is applied only to the surface.
The colour isn’t as rich however its finish provides greater protection against scratches, stains and fading.
These leathers are less expensive and usually aren’t as soft as dyed leathers.
Unlike upholstery, the colour of your custom made leather couches doesn’t make a difference when it comes to regular maintenance.
Just use a damp cloth to remove dust. Leather also takes on the temperature of your body within 12 seconds, so the belief that leather is cold is a misconception.
A leather couch or leather suite has to suit your lifestyle first.
Is it going to work for the way you’re going to use it? If it’s a busy space that gets a lot of wear and tear, go with a little heavier finish and protection so that you can just wipe up a stain.
When considering price, remember that a leather couch or leather suite will last at least as long as three fabric couch.
