How to Identify Different Leather Types

Larae Cocktail Ottoman EnglandFurniture

When you’re looking for a quality leather product, don’t be fooled by fake fabrics. Plastic-based materials attempt to emulate leather, but they don’t last nearly as long. Especially when it comes to furniture, you want to make sure you’re purchasing a piece that will last for years. The England Furniture Company has a variety of leathers to choose from, in different colors and textures.

This specific piece is the Larae Cocktail Ottoman with Nails 3N07ALN, a piece that comes only in leather, in the color of your choice. It’s lined with a simple, yet sophisticated nailhead trim and features tall turned wooden legs. Many pieces in various collections can be chosen in either fabric or leather, depending on the style. Here, England Furniture reviews the four main types of leather.

Full Grain
The highest quality leather, this type includes all parts of the natural grain. Because of this, it’s more expensive to treat, and thus, it costs more. It’s the most durable type of leather because it contains the strongest part of the hide. This type of leather typically looks more beautiful with age, as it develops a unique look specific to your item.

Top Grain
Being the second highest quality, the outer layer of the hide is removed. It’s thinner than full grain and since it’s easier to work with, it’s less expensive. This type of leather has a more uniform surface than full grain, so some people enjoy it more.

Split Leather
This type of leather is made by splitting the bottom part from the grain. This type of leather includes suede, which is textured to have a napped finish with a small pile.

Bonded Leather
This type of leather is actually only 17% real leather–it’s a processed leather product. Bonded leather is manufactured by taking scraps of real leather, grounding them up, and adhering them to a layer of polyurethane. It is lower quality, and thus, less costly.

Stain Resistant Furniture For Your Lifestyle

England Furniture Stain Resistant Fabrics with Livesmart Technology

Ever watch a movie or TV show and fall in love with the furniture? You know, beautiful stark white down couches with a white shag throw rug and glass top coffee table? It can look picture perfect, but if you duplicate the style in a house full of kids and Rover the family pooch, that look might last about thirty seconds. Maybe.

We all want to live in spaces that make us happy and we can more readily do that when we are realistic about our lifestyles and what comes with it. People who enjoy entertaining will have a hard time with furniture that can’t be lived in because spills and accidents happen in life. If you have kids or children visit often, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable for them will end up making your life easier, especially if they wander a little too close to your collection of first editions while sucking on a juice box.

The colors and accessories we choose for our rooms should complement our personalities and accent the things we love. Sometimes it’s safe to have the main furniture be a neutral color and then use pillows and blankets as colorful accents. If you love leather or dark furniture, then you can brighten the room with lighter shades of paint and bright lighting. No matter what you decide, look at your lifestyle and try to match it to your home décor.

We can still fawn over that white furniture, but parents might want to hold off until the kids are a little bit older.
