Are you ready to take home a new piece of upholstered furniture? Deciding what material you want is THE place to start. Fabrics like cotton, polyester, and velvet are some of the most popular materials available, along with the timeless and classic look of leather.
The best way to decide which works best for you is to compare the two. Here's a look at the pros and cons of fabric and leather:
Fabric—Fabric is available in a large variety of fabric types, and comes in TONS of different colors and patterns. It's also generally more affordable than leather. However, fabric is prone to animal clawing, absorbs allergens and odors like pet dander or spilled drinks, and is harder to clean than leather.
Leather—Leather, meanwhile, is allergy-friendly (it's pet dander and dust mite resistant), doesn't hold strong odors, is easy to clean, and carries a durable look that gains character with age. Leather doesn't come without its share of disadvantages, though. Leather generally has a higher initial cost, and while many leathers have a protective finish, those without it can be scratched. While leather can at first feel cool to the touch in the winter and a bit warm in the summer, it will conform to your body's temperature and provide you with a comfortable experience.
