Finally, a leather sofa is pretty easy to care for. A basic wipe down with warm water is usually enough to clean up any mishaps, and if it needs a general reconditioning, leather conditioner is readily available and is easy to apply.
The first thing about a leather sofa that sets it above and apart from other types of sofas is its inherent durability. Leather itself is just plain tough. Whether it's cow hide, alligator, shark, or some other exotic hide, the resulting leather is simply going to last for years and years. It takes a real beating and just gets more charming as a result. The natural texture and coloration of leather lends itself to longevity because it doesn't show normal use as a defect. Rather, any occasional sign of wear just adds to the charm. This is a generalized statement and, of course, there are exceptions. Some leather is very smooth and will show blemishes. A leather sofa isn't immune to wear and tear, but it does excel what other fabric options will do.
Leather Looks Nicer: Though durability may be a hallmark of leather furniture, the material has a reputation for adding elegance and sophistication to a room. No matter what color dye is used, leather makes the room look nicer than a patterned upholstery. While leather may cost more than upholstered sofas, its durability and chic look make it well worth the cost.
The difference between professional and DIY cleaning results is generally in the chemicals used. Cleaning companies will have a range of chemicals used for specific stains: one for coffee, one for red wine, one for doggy mess, etc. If your best efforts have failed, with professional upholstery cleaning the proof is in the pudding, or lack of it on your sofas, as the case may be.
If, on the other hand, you've got a pillow-back sofa, you should stick with either the same number or a single cushion for the seating. In other words, if the back as three pillow sections, use either one or three cushions on the seat base. Anything else will give the sofa an oddly unbalanced feeling.
