Should Your Next Lounge Suite Be Leather Or Fabric?

Are you about to purchase a new lounge suite? There are many things to consider. What size do you need? What is your budget? Are you looking for a corner lounge, chaise lounge, recliner, or do you need a sofa bed?

But one of the most important questions that you need to ask yourself is, should your next lounge suite be leather or fabric?

You might not even consider this a question if you have always had the same, but situations can change and this is something that you should consider.

Fabric or leather lounge suite

Fabric Lounge Suites

Fabric is the most popular option. And many reasons why. First of all, the colour choices are endless with fabric lounge suites, especially our Australian-made range where we use leading brands like Warwick Fabric and have hundreds of colours, patterns and styles to choose from.  

We can also provide fabric protection on all our fabric lounge suites giving you peace of mind that your sofa will last whatever your family and pets throw at it. Fabric protection can also provide an extended warranty. Just ask us in-store. 

When it comes to cost, a fabric lounge will usually be the cheaper option. If you are price-conscious, a fabric sofa is your go to. 

Comfort is subjective, but generally speaking, fabric sofas are seen as the preferred choice. Especially in the warmer months, leather can get sticky and sweaty, whereas fabric will breathe and be much more pleasant to sit and watch your favourite TV shows. 

Leather Lounge Suites

If you are looking for a classy and sophisticated lounge suite, then look no further than leather. It has a beautiful sleek look that you just can't get with fabric. 

Leather lounge suites are the most durable of the 2 options. It’s naturally a thick product and anything 100% leather sofa will be built to last. Leather can often be seen as the more expensive choice, but its durability and long-lasting nature mean its great value for money. It's often said "your first leather lounge suite will be your last."

Caring for and keeping your lounge suite clean will never be easier with a leather lounge. Any spills can be easily wiped off and any scratches can be fixed. 

The Choice Is Now Yours...

So in conclusion, both options have some great positives and can be suited to different families. Fabric has endless colour options, is price-conscious and is comfortable for snuggling up on. 

Leather is sleek and classy, easy to maintain and will last a lifetime representing amazing value for money.
