Leather can be expensive, sofas can be expensive, so when you put the two together you are sure to be hit with one heck of a bill. This is a common misconception. While there are definitely leather sofas that can set you back upwards of $5000, there are many more options that are downright affordable. There are plenty of discount leather stores, shops, boutiques, and outlets where you are sure to find a great looking discount leather sofa that would perfectly compliment your home decor. In order to get the best deal on a leather sofa you have to have an idea as to what you're looking for, but at the same time keep an open mind. For example if you want a brown Discount Leather Sofaleather sofa, that's good to know. But don't be stuck on getting a brown leather sofa that has a recliner, is 96 inches in length, has a diamond pattern on the seat back etc - you may miss out on some gems if you limit yourself too much.

In doing your research to find out what type of discount leather sofa you're looking for start with websites such as Nextag.com; This will allow you to compare all the different types of sizes, shapes, name brands and colors so you'll know what kind of prices to expect. Having all the different type of leather sofas in one spot, available for you to look at from the comfort of your home, can help you narrow down your search. Not to mention the fact you won't have an eager salesperson at your side, trying to make a sale.

Once you've kind of narrowed down and know exactly what you're looking for it's time to start shopping - the fun part! The first place you want to look for a discount leather sofa is not your traditional department store. You can start with antique or thrift stores. These options many times have a great selection of gently used sofas. And an antique store is the perfect place to look if you want a couch that has been aged or artificially distressed.

Another option to buying a discount leather sofa is not to shop at the department stores, but to shop on their websites. Is there a difference? Yes! A big difference. For example, Macy's occasionally runs a deal where if you buy online it's half off and free shipping. It's the exact same sofa in the store, but they're trying to promote their online store so they give great deals. So what the heck, why not buy an originally priced $1500 leather sofa for half of that and on top of that get it delivered and set up in your home for free! There's no shame in that!

If you really want to buy a name brand sofa but what to get it at a discount try waiting for holiday's (not Christmas, because prices go through the roof) but the day after Thanksgiving, Memorial day, and Labor Day are all days when department stores have some of their top name brand furniture on sale. You may have to tackle crowds, rude people and long lines, but it will sure be worth it.

Lastly, make sure you take the time to look. If you don't have the money to spend, don't just buy the first thing you fall in love with, because if you do it's almost guaranteed that once you sit on it one good time you'll see a leather sofa that looks better for cheaper. So search the web, ask friends, keep your eyes peeled, be proactive and aggressive and you're sure to find the perfect discount leather sofa soon.
