What you need to consider before buying a leather couch
There is nothing quite as luxurious and timelessly appealing as a genuine leather lounge suite. At Leather Gallery we pride ourselves on providing our customers with premium quality leather furniture that, when properly cared for, will last for many years.
We offer a wide range of leather couches, leather corner sofas, leather recliners as well as leather suites. Whether you are after a leather couch that is classic and timeless or a modern leather sectional, we have something for every home and every style.
We can all agree that there is nothing quite as luxurious as leather furniture, but with all the leather options, it can often feel overwhelming and you might not be sure what you are actually purchasing.  
Finding the perfect leather couch is not always as simple as walking into a store and buying the first one that you like. There are many factors that should influence the style of leather couch as well as the type of leather you choose.
The first thing to consider is the main style and over all look of your home. Although you might like a grand U-shape leather couch, your living room might not be able to accommodate the size, maybe considering a smaller L-shaped sofa will better suit the layout and size of your living room. Lifestyle factors such as whether you have kids or pets (or both!), where you live and whether you simply want to make a style statement or you're looking to invest in a quality leather couch, will also come into play.
When purchasing a leather sofa, you need to ask the consultant what type of leather the sofa is made from. At Leather Gallery all of our leather furniture are issued with an Authenticity Certificate of the type of leather used in their sofas e.g. Full grain leather, top grain leather  or corrected grain leather.  


The addition of leather furniture pieces into your living room setting can be both timeless and modern. Leather sofas add depth and beauty to various interior styles. The first thing to consider when shopping around for a leather couch is to consider the atheistic you are after in your living room. If you are after a more contemporary, streamlined look, a leather suite with square arms and cleaner lines such as our San Lorenze Leather Sofa Suite will perfectly compliment the space.

Crafted from full grain genuine leather the San Lorenze Leather Sofa Suiteis available as a whole suite, a three-seater, two-seater as well as a one-seater. At Leather Gallery we know that no two individuals have exactly the same interior design style, therefore, we have carefully crafted a wide range of leather options. The luxurious San Lorenze Leather couch is available in hues of browns and beige, but, if you are after something more statement worthy, colours such as bright white or deep red will help create the perfect statement sofa in your living room.


A leather couch can be far more durable than fabric upholstery such as linen or velvet. Low maintenance and resistant to dirt and staining are some of the key reasons families or busy households should consider investing in a leather couch. A leather couch is perfect for high traffic areas such as your living room. With that being said, leather has similar properties to our own skin. We suggest making use of our range of leather care products to ensure that your leather furniture remains in pristine condition.
