Leather sofas for sale offer a wide range of sofa designs and price ranges. Leather sofas can be fabricated leather, partial leather or genuine leather. Furthermore, quality genuine leather, often referred to as “full-grain” or “top-grain”, is the most durable, but most expensive. It can last for a very long time and tends to become more beautiful with the passage of time when it is well cared for. The full leather referred to as “split-hide” is less-costly, although it is lower-quality leather that cracks more readily than top-grain. The least expensive products are fabricated and partial leathers.
