Try Out Leather Sofas Before You Buy Them

Try Out Leather Sofas Before You Buy Them

You’ve just sold your home and you’re moving into a condo in downtown Toronto, somewhere closer to a subway line, the museums, the theatres, the restaurants – and your office.

Now that the kids have moved out you can say goodbye to those hour-long commutes and feel closer to the city. However, downsizing also means you’re going to have to downsize some of your possessions, or at least decide what comes with you and what goes into storage. You’ve got plenty of things to consider when you’re ready to upgrade and update your furniture, from choosing between leather and fabric, finding a shop that offers the selection, sizes, and styles you need, and how you’re going to get it delivered to your home.

You may find that your old sofa does not fit well in your new home because of its shape or size; sell or donate the old one and start looking for an upgrade. You don’t have to give up the sleek look of a modern leather sectional if you know where to look; furniture stores like The Chesterfield Shop with locations throughout the GTA have tons of size options, including sectionals designed for urban condos. You can still achieve a fashionable, good-looking living space when you downsize your home by updating your sofa; you may also want to look into sofa beds for accommodating guests in your space.

If you’re not sure about whether you should buy leather or fabric, consider that leather is a material that is sturdy, flexible, resists spills and punctures, and it can be easily cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth. The kids may have grown up and moved out, but there’s always grandchildren to think about, not to mention pets like dogs or cats; it holds up where fabric frays and tears, and it should be available in any modern sofa selection in Toronto.

As fabric sofas age, they fade in colour and lose their shape, whereas leather breathes; this means it dissipates cold and heat quickly making it comfortable immediately. It also releases moisture meaning it does not get as sticky or clammy as plastic or vinyl-based imitations. Modern tanning processes make the material shiny, resistant to peeling, sagging or cracking, and perfect for home and office furnishings.

Today, more shops are turning toward eco-friendly options, as the furniture industry has long needed some green updates to their process. BioPlush Soybean cushions are one product, available at The Chesterfield Shop, that is decreasing the furniture industry’s dependence on fossil fuels and reducing its carbon footprint.

Leather is simply more luxurious than fabric when it comes to furniture, and it boasts many benefits that fabric coverings do not. Plus, it is often considered to be hypoallergenic, so it is great for people who are more sensitive to allergies – and it won’t catch and build up animal fur the way fabric will.  Leather furniture just seems to be more inviting and it's a great way to impress visitors to your home. It is durable and is guaranteed to last for years; visit a trusted furniture store today to upgrade.
