Leather Sofas: A Classic Piece for any Home

What’s the centre of your home? Some would argue that the kitchen is the heart of the home; that’s where you prepare food and drink, not only essential for survival, but essential for entertaining friends and family. Others would argue that a family that dines together stays together. Many families like to have at least one day a week where everyone sits down in the dining room, or at least at the dining table. No TV dinners or trays on laps- a touch of formality is good for family cohesion (and perhaps discipline?!). That would put the dining table at the top of the most important room league. Few would argue that because you spend a third of your life sleeping, the bedroom is king (or queen) of your home. It is also your (and perhaps your partner’s) place of personal quietude, a shelter from the rigours of the day and the rest of the family.
But my guess is that most people would say that the centre of their home is the place where most people come to relax, chat, watch TV, listen to music… the sitting room otherwise known as the lounge or in old fashioned terms “the front room” because it is/was normally located at the front of the house. Now let’s go one stage further. If we assume that the lounge is the centre of the house, what is the centre or rather the centre-piece of the lounge? Please don’t say the plasma screen! I would suggest it is the sofa. Whether two seat, three seat, larger, longer L-shaped or accompanied with flanking armchairs, surely it is the place where you and others will gravitate when you want to relax, unwind, whatever. Every home no matter how large or small, whether a large light modern home, a bijou flat or a rustic cottage, you need a comfortable signature centrepiece sofa for your lounge or living room.
As we have identified, sofas can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and include options such as sectionals for basements or smaller rooms, sofas with attached chez lounges or with pull-out beds for visitors. It also comes in a variety of materials. I would argue that leather sofas are the best, the epitome of luxury, warm in winter, cool in summer, and just so inviting.
sofa.com leather sofas offer one of the best options for both durability and appearance, and are second to none when it comes to quality and comfort. Hand crafted leather sofas are available from many shops and online retailers and help bring an air of warmth and life to any living space. They don’t have to be classic dark brown or black these days (although both those colours are very classic and stylish). You can have bright red or orange, lime green or off-white. So your sofa can fit into whatever colours you are using in your room.
A leather sofa can also stand up to levels of use that many cloth and fibre sofas cannot, and with proper care and treatment can last for decades. One of the best benefits of leather sofas is that time only helps bring out their character; rather than making it look worn, creases, folds and distress add to the character. Just like Levi jeans used to sell more second-hand after they had been well worn-in and virtually distressed. A worn-in leather sofa is something to be embraced and admired.
