9 Best Leather Sofas

Leather sofas are an incredibly popular furniture option for millions and often described as ‘timeless.’

Choosing the perfect leather sofa can be difficult. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer choice available, so in this article, we’re narrowing it down to 10 of our favourites.

What are the benefits of leather sofas?

This is a question well worth asking. Why should you even consider leather as an option? You could just buy a fabric, denim or wooden sofa, right? Let’s look at some amazing benefits of leather sofas.

Durability – Leather is tougher than fabric sofas, and on average last up to four times as long. In fact, if you take care of your leather sofa then there’s no reason you can’t keep it for 15, 20, even 25 years. They truly are a long-term option.

Beauty – Leather sofas never go out of fashion. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t like looking at a nice leather sofa? They’re designed with aesthetic appeal in mind so look sleek, stylish, elegant and add a feeling of luxury to any space.

One of the best things about buying a leather sofa over fabric and denim sofas is that you don’t have to worry about it ‘going out of style.’ Leather has always been in style for hundreds of years, hence why the material has stuck around in the market all this time.

Quality – Leather sofas tend to be associated with the top end of furniture products and for good reason. They’re built with the finest materials and processes, meaning they truly are of exceptional quality.

Curling up on the sofa with a book, to Netflix and chill or to socialise with friends is a much more enjoyable affair when you have a quality leather sofa beneath you.

Leather sofas tend to be slightly more expensive than their wool, vinyl, fabric and denim counterparts, but you get what you pay for which tends to be a higher quality sofa that will make you feel pride.

Leather ages well – Unlike other sofas which look notably worn, torn and used after a couple of years use, leather sofas age well.

Over time they become softer and more supple, gaining character in the process. Leather is also more resistant to heat and sun damage, so you don’t have to worry about leaving yours by a window or even outside if you’re lucky enough to live somewhere warm!

Leather sofas very rarely tear, even along the seam lines, due to the toughness of the material. A stark difference to fabric and denim sofas which are known to rip and tear after a couple of years use.

Leather sofas work well with pets – If you’re an animal lover and want a sofa you don’t have to worry about your four-legged friend destroying, leather is the way to go.

Leather sofas are easy-to-clean, durable and wear resistant, so they are perfectly suited to handle your pet when they fancy having a play or a lie down on the sofa.

A notable benefit is that most leather sofas are too thick for an animal’s claws to puncture so you won’t have to worry about having to replace or get your sofa repaired. Happy days!

Also, leather repels bad smells and doesn’t absorb odour like its fabric sofa counterparts. As a result, your sofa will maintain its fresh leathery smell whether you have a pet or not.

Some things to consider before buying

Will the leather sofa work in your home? – Sofas tend to be the focal point of most homes, so choosing the right sofa is vital. When researching make sure you consider whether the sofas size, style and colour will elegantly slot into your existing home decor.

The last thing you want to do is upset the status quo of a nicely balanced living room by getting a sofa that doesn’t match up to its feel.

Work out your budget and stick to it – Before you do ANY research, work out your budget and stick to it. Write it down so the figure is ingrained in your mind and don’t be tempted to add more money to it under any circumstances.

Millions of people get into financial difficulty because they don’t understand how to live within their means. Don’t let this happen to you. With a basic bit of budgeting discipline, you will be absolutely fine and won’t have anything to worry about.

Getting a neutral third party opinion– Buying a sofa can be an emotional process. For this reason, you can be tempted to make decisions based on your emotions rather than on logic.

Examples of this include purchasing a sofa you love which is too big for your space or buying a sofa which looks gorgeous on its own but won’t integrate with your existing decor. Emotional decisions which will undoubtedly cause issues later as the logic hasn’t been considered.

Having the opinion of a neutral third party, like a friend or colleague, on hand will help you avoid this. A neutral third party won’t be as emotional or attached to sofas you view because they aren’t the one getting a sofa for their home, you are. This means they can offer and objective opinion on the sofas you view based on logic and practicality rather than on emotion.

If you see a sofa you love and are thinking of buying, I’d always recommend that you ask a neutral third party for their opinion. They will often be happy to help and check your proposed purchase is rational and will actually work within your home. Ultimately, you’ll be mitigating the risk of making a totally emotional purchase and will ensure there is some logic in the decision making. A much smarter way to purchase a leather sofa.

Make sure you actually NEED a new sofa – This might sound like a stupid thing to be saying, but the amount of people who spend money on leather sofas who don’t actually NEED one is astonishing.

These people already have clean, beautiful sofas in good condition which match their needs and their families needs, but they insist on purchasing a new sofa. This decision is often emotional and not rational, as the sofa buyer is often persuaded by a compelling piece of sofa advertising and think ‘that looks amazing, I have to buy that right now!’ I don’t know about you, but spending money on a new sofa when you already have one which is perfectly fine is just crazy.

Before starting research and even thinking about making a purchase, check the following things.

  • Do you have no sofa and need one for your home?
  • Is your existing sofa broken?
  • Does your current sofa look tatty?
  • Does your growing family need a bigger sofa?
  • Are you restyling or renovating your home?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you may need to buy a new sofa, which is totally fine. There are many more reasons for buying a sofa which we haven’t covered. Whatever the case, make sure you have a valid reason for wanting to make the purchase.

We don’t want you to spend money for no reason, so make sure you assess your situation and decide whether you truly need a leather sofa or not.

This is then extruded onto a cloth of paper backing and the surface is usually embossed with a leather-like texture or grain.
