Any space, no matter how beautiful or comfortable it is, can get a little stale after a while. There’s nothing more frustrating than coming home to a dull living room or a boring den. Luckily, there’s a quick and easy way to update any room that’s lost your interest. Adding modern leather furniture can revive a tired space with sophisticated ease.
Nothing is as elegant and long-lasting as leather. In fact, the material even gets better looking as it ages. That’s partly due to the fibre’s natural composition, as genuine leather is a porous, durable material that can last much longer than man-made materials. When enhanced by specific polishes and finishes, leather truly shines. These finishes can bring out the natural beauty of the fibres while also protecting it from continued wear. That’s why genuine leather so rarely cracks, sags, or discolours.
Depending on your design and living style, you have plenty of finishes to choose from. Some are designed with longevity and ease of maintenance in mind, so families with young children and pets can still enjoy leather without immediately seeing it go to the dogs (or kids!). Others are made for more mature families that won’t put so much stress on the material.
If you have concerns about using leather, remember that leather is organic and environmentally friendly. Unlike synthetic, faux-leather that can use environmentally damaging chemicals, leather is by-product of the meat industry, permitting use of the entire animal. Even tanning agents (like tannin) come from the bark of trees and are the by-products of the lumber industry. To boost an even greener off-set, leading furniture stores have embraced eco-friendly cushioning in their design. The Chesterfield Shop guarantees that every one of their pieces has BioPlush Soybean cushioning, reducing their reliance on petroleum based (and therefore non-renewable) cushioning. They also encourage their customers to recycle their old pieces with them, so that they can continue to decrease their environmental footprint.

Sofas, loveseats, ottomans, recliners, and sectionals are available, so you have a variety of ways to update your living spaces. The addition of a leather sofa or chair will no doubt improve the look of your room, adding style and elegance to a once boring space. The next time your return from work, you won’t be annoyed with your dull design. Instead, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment for having found such a beautiful and eco-friendly way to change your space.
