While yourfabric furniture may begin to fade and wear over time, leather furniture will continue tolook new for years, if not decades, to come.

Every effort hasbeen made to not only retain the natural grain of the leather, but to match pieces so youcan’t tell where one piece of leather ends and another begins. Suede, on the other hand,has had the grain entirely removed, giving it its characteristic fuzzy feel. If you want adurable sofa set, go with top grain leather. It will last a lot longer and not show wearspots like suede or cheaper types of leather. Top grain costs more, but is worth it in termsof quality, wear and longevity.
