Leather Sofa Slippery

I am in the market for a new sofa and I am very attracted to a Red/Burgundy or Sangria in this case leather sofa. This particular sofa is top-grade leather and also comes in a chocolate color. As I walk around the store I see other sofas I like but I always come back to this Sangria red leather sofa. I cannot seem to stop thinking about purchasing this sofa for my living room. The problem is, I already have a chocolate brown, big leather chair with rolled arms in the same room already, and a plaid (red/burgundy/green and mushroom) wing chair. The sofa I like, has rolled arms also, just slimmer like that of my leather chair. My walls are painted a golden-honey with brown undertones,(like a deep golden-sand color) and white trim, and my curtains are almost the same color as the wall color. I have burgundy/red accents at the moment which look beautiful in this room. My question to you would be this, should I purchase the Sangria or Chocolate color for the sofa? My heart is in love with the Sangria and I cannot stop thinking about it, but my logical side…the brain is not sure?

A new leather couch is a luxurious addition to your decor. But attempting to remain in one place on it can be an unexpected difficulty. Wax coating gives your leather couch extra eye appeal while it's still in the showroom, and protects and moisturizes the leather, too. Once your new leather couch is home, you might find the wax makes the surface feel like an oil slick or ice skating rink. You can make your leather couch feel less slippery with supplies found readily around the home.

When I design rooms for friends and customers, I often include just one leather side chair or sofa in a grouping of upholstered pieces. Sometimes I place a pair of matching leather club chairs on either side of a fireplace or across from the sofa. Another look I like is a leather coffee table ottoman that acts as the hub of a room of upholstered pieces. I always finish off leather furniture with an accent pillow or two, picking patterns that play up the natural richness of the leather while also bringing in color and pattern.

In 1921, the American Technical Society recommended correcting slippery leather by “washing it first with gasoline and then with water.” No right-minded person would follow such a recommendation today, but the Society was on the right track. Slippery leather has a coating–heavy in carnauba wax or beeswax–which makes it too slick to be comfortable for the sitter. Although gasoline will certainly clear away that coating, there are safer, modern-day alternatives to achieve the same result.

I write a few articles on sofas and I do wonder why people opt for the darker more traditional tones in leather sofas these days. Especially when staining of brighter and more varied colours of leather is certainly more widely available. Which makes it even more exciting when adding sofa accessories like throws or cushions. With pillows however, the sofas definately need to be more deep seated. Personally speaking, ended up having to put a throw on a leather sofa because the cats kept scratching it. Should have just bought a park bench with pillows.

My favorite way to decorate with leather furniture is to use it sparingly, mixing one or two pieces into groupings that mainly consist of upholstered furniture. Since I’m not a fan of a matchy-matchy look, I am not partial to the leather sofa, love seat, side chair combo sets out there. A sea of leather can feel cold, and the similar style and shape repeated over and again doesn’t lend itself to the visually intriguing look I love in a home.

Stay away from any kind of slick fabric (like silk), because it will slide right off of leather onto the floor, and that’s all kinds of irritating. Same is true of poly-filled pillows. You need a heavier pillow that will hold it shape and not slide off the leather. And to brighten the darkness of a dark leather sofa, lighter neutrals or any bold COLOR is certainly the way to go for pillows.

A leather sofa adds elegance to a room’s decor and serves as a focal point for your high style. When the weather turns cold and you want something a bit warmer on your back and backside, a slipcover is an easy way to add warmth to the room and your body, as you change the seasonal decor. Or if the leather sofa has seen better days, a slipcover extends the life of your furniture while hiding unsightly cracks or tears. To keep your slipcovers from slipping, consider a couple of tricks to keep everything in its proper place.

Tip If your sofa is dark leather, use a heavy, opaque material to cover the sofa so the dark color doesn’t show through. Measure the sofa before buying a slipcover to ensure it will fit properly.

“That’s enough of a premium that you would think it would be genuine leather, not fabric with leather glued to it,” he said. “They lady told us it was leather, told us it was good quality.”

Leather sofas are low maintenance and a favorite of those with young children, pets, and singles who enjoy eating pizza and whatnot in front of the television every night. Many of my clients have dark leather sofas in their homes but express frustration at the boring and bachelor-pad look of such a sofa.

Candie — try this trick: have slip covers made for the cushions of your leather sofa in a nice fabric, like a plaid or linen. You could even have two sets made – one that’s summer weight and one that’s winter weight. They will give you hubby some traction while he’s lounging. Or, add a throw blanket that you can drape over the back or arm of the sofa for show, and he can pull down and sit on when he’s ready to settle in.

When your leather piece needs to be cleaned, manufacturers usually recommend using clean, distilled water and a natural sponge or cotton cloth to lightly dab the affected area. Be careful not to soak the leather or you might create another, larger stain. And, whatever you do, don’t rub the area – you will spread the stain and push it farther into the material. When you dab, you’re trying to transfer the stain from the furniture to the cloth.
