What is good-quality leather for sofas?

1 Answer
What is good-quality leather for sofas?
Full-grain and top-grain leather are both good quality-leathers for sofas. Full-grain leather consists of the full hide, making it durable yet supple and visually appealing. Top-grain leather is more economically priced and has the outermost layer of the hide sanded and buffed away, giving it a smoother texture and less of a visible grain. On 1stDibs, explore a wide range of leather sofas.
