How can you tell a good-quality leather sofa?

1 Answer
To tell a good-quality leather sofa, examine its details closely. The highest-end pieces will usually feature full-grain leather, which refers to a strong and durable grade of leather that retains its original grain surface (hair and imperfections are removed). What type of fill is present inside the cushions also impacts the quality, with spring seats with felt and wool and high-grade foam being featured in the best sofas. Finally, frames will typically be produced out of sturdy materials like wood and feature strong joints. Explore a large collection of sofas on 1stDibs.
