The Great Sofa Debate

The sofa is the heart of any living space. So when it comes to choosing between a leather or fabric sofa, it’s worth taking into consideration your lifestyle and design style.

On average we invest in a sofa every 7 years and there are so many factors to take into consideration; choosing between leather and fabric is just one of them. So let’s look at what each has to offer.

There are a lot of great things about leather: it’s a natural material, both luxurious and practical. It’s durable and can easily withstand the rigors of everyday living. And whilst it’s perceived to suit a minimalist style, it can also bring a relaxed, homely feel to any room.

A fabric sofa allows you to add personality to your living space using colour and texture. And freedom’s standard fabric selection makes the choice a little bit easier when deciding on a sofa style.

The great news, leather and fabric will last, as long as they’re cared for properly. Still can’t decide between the two? Then why not have the best of both worlds: a fabric sofa and a leather armchair.

But remember, there’s no substitute for genuine leather, so get educated and talk to freedom about our quality leather sofa story today.

Once you’ve decided on leather or fabric (or both) all you have to do is decide on a chaise modular, 2 seat, 3 seat or armchair, sofa bed, high back, low back, colour, texture or grain?

Maybe you should just have a look at the fabulous sofas freedom has to offer.
