Pros and Cons of Leather Seating

As with any fabric, leather has its pros and cons.  The two major pros are durability and longevity.  Fabric can wear, tear and stain easily.  Leather can simply be wiped down with soap and water for cleaning and, with proper care, can last many years beyond traditional fabric.

One of the cons of leather furniture is if you own pets.  Their claws can inadvertently scratch or tear leather.  This is also true of fabric, but it may be easier to repair.

Some may claim that leather is cold in winter and warm in summer and can be less comfortable than fabric.  This depends on the quality of the leather and where it is used.  Overall, the durability, longevity and style surpass any initial cons of leather seating.
