Upholstered furniture with leather or canvas?

      It is spring and I want to change something in my house. Analyzing room atmosphere I decided to change seat upholstery. Choosing upholstered furniture may be confusing…For some of us choosing it is the most enjoyable part of upholstery shopping. Upholstery fabrics have a wide range of quality and price. Be sure that you know what you want from your upholstery before you buy it.

     Many people prefer leather upholstery. There is no doubt leather furniture adds sophistication and elegance to any interior. This kind of fabric has a lot of advantages, for example leather furniture is not picky when it comes to dirt caused by various liquids, dust and it is an ideal choice for families who have babies. Also leather furniture is ideal for smokers.
     But there are also some disadvantages. One of them is its price. Leather upholstery is not very cheap. Moreover the leather offers very limited colors and designs unlike other textiles. Another disadvantage is that the material is sensitive to sharp objects, because of this we should be very carefully with it because it is a great risk of scratching the material. I’ve heard that after a while it also can change it color.

     Fabrics also have advantages and disadvantages. A big advantage of it is the diversity of designs and colors
     The biggest disadvantage of canvas upholstery is sensitivity. When you pour water on it is more disturbing than the leather material. For example a red wine stain is much easier to clean the leather trim unlike the fabric upholstery, sometimes you need a specialist advice to avoid the stain.

     Even if the fabric is harder to clean and if due to leather upholstery any room or space will look luxuriously I prefer canvas, not leather. I can't endure this material on my skin. If it is hot I have a bad feeling ... like staying "glued" to the couch.
     I've never been a fan of leather furniture... Maybe I should try? I like the changes in the house but even more I love comfort.
