Rochester is knows as a 'leather destination' as we offer our customers a wide range of leather options which are customised to suit the customer's exact needs.
Leather offers a number of advantages; including durability, longevity, easy maintenance and a timelessly classical and elegant appeal. It is for this reason that leather has become one of the most popular and desirable upholstery choices today.
Types of Leather
CORRECTED GRAIN LEATHER
Corrected Grain Leather has its natural markings removed and has an applied finish of pigments and sealer coats to better resist markings and spillages.
Genuine leather on all body contact areas and imitation/synthetic leather on the non-body contact areas.
GENUINE LEATHER (FULL ANILINE LEATHER)
Full Aniline Leather is the most rewarding for leather connoisseurs. It has a wonderful silky touch and the look has great depth. The natural markings and scars on the side hide give this leather its character and authenticity. With age, this leather will mould to your body shape and colours may mellow and change according to its use and environment, making the piece of furniture uniquely your own.
Semi-Aniline leather is stylish and more natural looking. Its finish gives it a uniform look and does not disguise all the natural markings and scars on the hide. This provides more uniqueness to your suite as no two hides are identical and will provide a more natural appeal.
Clean up any stains and spillages immediately by dabbing the area with a clean and absorbent cloth.
Vacuum your leather furniture weekly using a soft brush attachment to remove as much dust as possible.
To avoid even wear and tear, regularly plump, turn and rotate the cushions on your leather sofa. This will keep the couch looking better for a longer period of time.
Move furniture around regularly. To avoid the same seats being used all the time. This will assist in increasing the sofa's longevity and keep it looking good for longer.
Avoid placing your leather furniture in direct sunlight, as the UV rays will eventually discolour the leather, causing it to, fade and become brittle over time.
Do not use any chemical cleaning products on the leather. This can damage the surface and texture of the couch
Keep your leather furniture away from direct heat and fires, heaters, laptops, and hot cups or plates.
Your leather furniture is designed to be sat on - so do not allow people to jump on it, or to sit on the arms or the back of the sofa.
Sharp objects such as pet's claws, belt buckles, jewellery and things like scissors for example, can lead to seriously scratching of the leather.
