Can I dye a leather sofa?
Yes, you can dye a leather sofa. To do so, you must typically begin by sanding down the upholstery, oiling it and then applying dye. Because there is a risk that you could damage your sofa, you may wish to enlist the help of a professional upholsterer or furniture repair expert. Find a variety of leather sofas on 1stDibs.
