Fabric vs Faux Leather for your Living Room

When choosing your living room furniture have you thought about going with faux leather instead of the normal fabrics? Since moving into our new house last Summer I’m still debating on fabrics for the sofas. Plus I’m sure my husband would love a recliner to kick back and relax in.

In fact my mum is currently looking at reclining chairs for my elderly father. She only told me this yesterday as he needs a comfortable chair to sit in to ease his aches and pains. So I mentioned to her about Fenetic Wellbeing, who I’m working with on this post to highlight the pros of faux leather recliners. While browsing through reclining chairs with her online it seems that when it comes to style, practicality and durability faux leather seems to be a number one choice.

From looking at faux leather from a parent’s perspective it’s much easier to clean up spills than fabric. Plus it looks much more hard wearing when you happen to have a boisterous 2 year old running and jumping about all over the place. Fabrics on furniture can be damaged much more easily than faux leather.

Faux leather is much more affordable than real leather, but you get some of the real leather qualities. Such as look, feel, and durability. If you go for the right colour of faux leather it can be timeless and suit many interior styles over the years. In fact you can think of it as a fantastic investment for the future. It will be there for you for many years to come.

A big plus with faux leather is that it’s been made in a factory, and no animals have been harmed in the manufacturing process.

    The only thing I don’t like about faux leather is the sound it makes! x
