A curved leather sofa is a modern and contemporary piece of furniture and is a great eye-catcher for any room. Your curved leather sofa is sure to be the focal point of any dÃ©cor and will be the foundation for the color palette, and set the overall warm tone for the room. There are a lot of things to keep in mind when choosing your curved leather sofa, for example; color, style, size; and faux, genuine, traditional or antiqued leather.
You need to choose the color of your curved leather sofa wisely simply because it will be foundation and base of your living room or den. Because curved leather sofas are extremely popular, it is possible if you want a color other than the neutrals, black, or white you will have to get it custom dyed.
You may think the style of your sofa is curved but there are also other decisions you need to make as far as style as well. You will need to decide if you want your couch to curve inwards so that all the seats are facing each other or outwards so that when sitting down everyone's back is to each other. Another decision you will need to make is if you want the sofa to curve slightly or fully to make a complete circle or somewhere in between to make a horse shoe shape. There are also couches that don't curve in or out, but the ends of the couch simply curve up or down. This is something fun to play with and puts an extra twist on a traditional sofa. Big sectional sofas that curve can either curve in a circle or in a square.
The size of your couch will help you determine the style of it. If you need a smaller couch, you probably don't want to get a couch that makes a full circle of even that of one that makes a horse shoe shape. The smaller your couch needs to be the smaller curve it needs to have in it, to get the most out of the curve.
When it comes to the type of leather your curved sofa will be made of out of, there are a few options. The first is either the traditional or distressed leather. A distressed leather sofa is made to look like an antique sofa and has been artificially aged through different processes. It is not recommended that you purchase a curved distressed sofa. This is because the curved shaped sofas are more contemporary and modern and don't fit in with the distressed look. Have an antiqued contemporary sofa is an oxymoron. A traditional leather sofa is the best way to go when purchasing it curved.
Faux and genuine leather are made to look very similar nowadays. The differences between the two is that genuine leather is made from a real cow and used to be alive, whereas faux leather is manmade, and faux leather is less expensive than genuine leather. But they look very similar to the eye.
