Buying a new couch is a big deal. You want something that’s beautifully designed, yet durable enough to stand the test of time. High-quality leather sofas meet both of these criteria, due to their fine materials and the unique way in which they’re crafted. If you’ve been wondering how leather sofas are made, keep reading for an explanation of leather furniture production from our pros. In addition, tune in to our video demonstration.
The Components of High-Quality Leather Furniture
The Frame. The most durable frames are made from hardwood beams. Historically, these were held together with pegs, nails, or screws. Since more recent advances in engineering, finger-joint-engineered plywood has also become a popular medium. No matter the material, the most important part of a sturdy frame is corner block reinforcements.
- The Foundation. Eight-way, hand-tied coil springs are a sign of supreme craftsmanship. Other effective foundations are steel spring configurations or a drop-in coil.
- The Cushions. Here’s the part that’s entirely based on your personal preferences! There are a many great options for cushions (foam, feather down, foam with pocket coil, etc.), so the best thing to do is try out sofas in person and decide which you like most.
- The Leather. This is not the place to cut corners. Thankfully, Leather Expressions sells top-grain leather furniture. Unlike lower leather grades that wear out in five years, top-grain leather can last up to twenty years or longer. We carry top-grain leather options like maximum-protection leather, performance leather, or natural leather so that you can find the ideal sofa for your lifestyle.
