Leather is one of those few upholstery options that effortlessly becomes the centre of attraction in any home décor scheme.It’s mostly used to give a rustic yet soothing personality to a room. To understand the awe-inspiring beauty of an upholstery leather, just gaze at a burgundy faux leather couch in a matt finish. It’s a surreal experience,which in most casesis nearly inexplicable. Furnishing fabrics such as silk & velvet have their unique charm as well; but, when you need something classy and robust, leather is right there at the top of the pile.
Natural leather looks stunning,but many people shy away from it because of some inherent problems;it’s quite expensive, requires a lot of maintenance (not very forgiving when it comes to staining and soiling), questionable manufacturing process (animal cruelty, considerable energy wastage, and use of harmful chemicals), large pattern variations in the same hide, etc. To address these problems and provide a better alternative, faux (or artificial) leather is commonly used today for upholstery.
Two popular types of artificial leathers are polyvinyl chloride (PVC) leather and polyurethane (PU) leather. Generally, PVC is used more for upholstery and PU is more common in apparels. Both of them require minimal maintenance, are water resistance, retain their color for a long time, and have high durability. Also, both of these alternatives are appreciably cheaper thanreal leather. Unlike PU leather, PVC is able to replicate the aesthetics of a genuine leather to a very high degree.
