What's Important When Buying a Real Leather Sofa? CSL Sofas Show You What to Consider

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 18, 2012) - There are several factors which you need to consider when buying a leather sofa, the first, being whether you want to invest in a real leather sofa or are happy to go for a faux leather option. Faux leather sofas are usually cheaper but often result in false economy as faux leather is subject to cracking while real leather rarely faces this concern and can last a lifetime.

Once this decision is made, there are several other factors that need considering before you find the perfect sofa for you. The colour and style of the sofa are two important things to get right. This will be a key piece of furniture in any home and will be a focal point in the main reception rooms so it is important to choose a sofa of quality and style, one that fits with the interior of your home and one that reflects your personality. It will also be a considerable investment so it's important to choose a durable sofa that is easy to maintain.

What colour should you choose?

The colour you eventually choose will come down to individual taste and style. However, your home environment may also have some bearing on the decision. Families with small children may want to choose a darker leather such as brown or black so that, in the advent of spillages, stains will not be as obvious. If you wanted to opt for something a little more striking, red or purple would make a real impact in any room whilst remaining practical in a home with little ones. Those with a small living room would be wise to stay with the lighter shades and neutral tones. Interiors of small rooms tend to work best with a three colour or less palette as this creates the illusion of more space; a white or cream leather sofa would work especially well to brighten up any room.

For help in designing your living room, CSL recently launched their Colour "My" Room app, which is an online and phone application enabling shoppers to upload an image of their room and get instant advice on the perfect sofa to complement their existing colour scheme.

Which style will suit you?

The style you eventually settle on will also come down to personal preference. The size of the room may restrict your choice, CSL know that decorating a small room can often be a cause of stress and frustration. That's why, whatever colour or style will be best for you and your home, CSL will have what you are looking for. All the sofas from CSL come in a range of shapes and sizes with a life time guarantee, so once you are ready to furnish your living room start with the most essential item - the sofa.

Why buy a leather sofa?

Leather is at the high end of the furniture spectrum and is great value for money. Besides the aesthetic value of leather furnishing's unique characteristics and rich sophistication, there are other bonuses.

It is highly durable and generally lasts four times longer than their cloth covered counterparts. It will stain if spills are left unattended, but they easily wipe off, ensuring leather remains an attractive proposition for busy households.

The tough nature of leather allows for rough treatment by children and pets, such treatment will cause it to age, but even this is an advantage. Your furniture will acquire a soft sheen from use that is desirable and attractive.

CSL first launched in 1982 and have strived to build up a good reputation and customer base over the last 20 years. CSL have been featured on Mary Portas' Channel 4 documentary, Queen of Shops, and were notably the first sofa retailer to use the iPad to take sales from customers.
