Designers like Gucci, Hermes & Louis Vuitton create masterpieces in their clothing design. The same holds true in furniture. Furniture designers like Charles & Ray Eames, Marcel Breuer & Pasquale Natuzzi have created some of the world’s most sought out furniture designs. They designed furniture with form and function in mind with a unique style that makes them stand apart. These designs have inspired a lot of other furniture manufacturers to produce fashion forward pieces as well.
A manufacturer that comes to mind is G&G (a division of Nicolleti Home) and their Itaca sofa (pictured right and below). Notice the sharp angular steel legs that creates a minimalistic footprint. This sofa is also equipped with headrests that can be manually uplifted and seats that can be manually adjusted. Complete your ideal vision with a selection of leather colors with or without contrast stitching. One color isn’t enough for you? Why not opt for multicolor where you can apply one leather color to the frame and another to the cushions. Make it as unique as you are! Isn’t that what fashion is all about?

When buying leather furniture, it’s best to make as much of an informed decision as possible. This goes beyond what the sofa looks like, or just the color, though those are certainly important too. The first thing to consider is the purpose of the leather furniture you’re purchasing. Is it going to be in a family room, where everyone will be using it? Do you have pets? Consider how durable it needs to be, as there are quite a few factors that go in what makes a leather sofa durable.
If you haven’t yet, consider reading our Types of Leather article. The use of your future sofa will determine what type of leather is best for you. For instance, Protected Aniline is extremely tough and durable, while Pure Aniline is very soft and may not be advisable for homes with young children or pets, or rooms where food and drinks will be consumed. Overall, furniture being made from top grain leather is the highest quality, more durable and the one we recommend.
Beyond that, though, there are a couple of other factors to consider. What you don’t see is just as important as what you do see! For instance, the construction of the sofa can be a major part of the longevity and durability of the sofa. A wooden frame made of solid hardwood is far more durable and will last much longer than softwood, which will even warp over time.
So, the best way to make an informed decision is to just ask questions! And if you have any topics you would like us to cover here, visit our Facebook page and make a suggestion! We are certified leather experts and are fully committed to helping you find the right sofa for your home, stress free.
