Summer is a great time to start considering updating and improving your home, making it more refreshing and comfortable for yourself, your family, and your guests. Adding new furniture, or simply updating and replacing outdated furniture, can go a long way to improving the quality and comfort level of a home.
One of the best ways to update your furnishings (and home décor) is to replace outdated furniture with new leather furniture. Just about anyone would love to have a new recliner or sofa in their den or living room to be able to comfortably relax while they unwind from the day. If you’re looking for a way to live out that dream in your own recliner or wingback chair, check out this website for a great place to buy a leather chair in Toronto. If you don’t live in Toronto, just do your research and look around! Ideally you want a retailer that provides a wide selection, has been in business a long time, and has a history of satisfying its customers.
Leather is a very high quality material that has always been a gold standard when it comes to comfort, durability, and breath ability. There really is nothing better than relaxing on your new couch with the windows open and a glass of lemonade (complete with a sprig of mint) by your side. A lot of people seem to think that leather is a bad choice for summer, but it’s actually the opposite! It is cooler than your body temperature, and because it breathes so well you don’t end up sweating as much as when you sit in a fabric chair. Just ask the experts at your local furniture retailer, such as the Chesterfield Shop in the GTA, about the advantages of it as a material in the summer months.
In regards to durability, leather outlasts furniture made out of fabric by a ratio of four to one. That’s probably because it doesn’t tear anywhere near as easily, and it is easy to keep clean if you have pets, children, or an extremely messy partner (or if you’re the clumsy one yourself!). It’s also fire resistant and doesn't release any toxic fumes when it is exposed to heat, which is definitely a huge plus.
Unlike fabrics, leather doesn’t wear or fade over time, but actually becomes softer and more attractive, meaning you’re less likely to want to replace it in the future and can safely spend your money elsewhere. If you purchase a new piece of furniture from a quality retailer like the Chesterfield Shop, you can expect to get fifteen-to-twenty years of use out of it, as opposed to the four to five years that someone might get from fabric made sofas and recliners. When you consider what you’re getting and how much you’re going to spend, there’s really no excuse for going with a sub-par material for your new furniture purchase!
