Leather is durable. It has the ability to stand up to years of use. Life happens in the living room. Your sofa will see movie nights, naps, and coffee with friends, and when it’s upholstered in leather it can handle it all and look great while doing it. If you want a sofa that will last for years then consider leather.

Genuine leather has character. Each piece of leather furniture will have its own unique markings meaning there are no two pieces that are exactly alike. The character of leather has a richness that no fabric can replicate. Plus, the old adage is true; it only gets better with age.

Leather is incredibly versatile. Why does this matter? Because you can take a leather accent piece, such as these Crafters Metal Bench ottomans, and use them anywhere in your home that needs some texture. This is good news for those who like to rearrange furniture and refresh your home on a regular basis.

Leather is easy to clean and maintain. Spills and dirt are easily wiped away. Also, leather doesn’t absorb in the same way that fabric does, meaning odors won’t linger. So go ahead and lounge on these fun floor poufs with drinks and snacks without fear. They’re perfect for a casual living room or a kid’s playroom.
