Shopping Guide - Fabric VS Leather Sofas

Sofa shopping can be overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make to find your perfect sofa. Here’s a question we get a lot - Fabric OR Leather? To help you put an end to this dilemma, we created this mini shopping guide.

As you might expect, there is no right answer since both fabric and leather sofas have their pros and cons. To help you decide, we've condensed everything down to 3 Factors to Consider.


#1 Look & Feel

Leather sofas tends to appear more sleek and classy and sometimes even masculine.

Fabric sofas on the other hand can appear more trendy with a wider variety of colours, textures and prints and they generally add a contemporary touch to the interior.

#2 Maintenance

Typically, people opt for leather for its ability to withstand spillages as it is not as absorbent as fabric. That is why couples with young children may like leather sofas.

However, these days, there are fabrics with water repellent features for easier maintenance. Opt for those for the best of both worlds - wide variety + easy maintenance.

#3 Cost

Leather sofas generally costs more than fabric sofas. However, depending on the origin and grade of the leather sofa, it could be affordable too.

Likewise, even though fabric sofas are typically cheaper, sofas that use premium fabrics could be costly too.

So how?

Go for leather if you like the look and you don't mind spending more on it.

If you like the look and feel of fabric, go for those with features that make maintenance easier.
