Leather is a beautiful, natural and long lasting choice of sofa covering for your home. The London Furniture Company is a leather and fabric sofa specialist, offering a choice of five leather and 3 fabric categories in a large range of colours. All our leather is 100% sourced in and processed in Italy. Read our article on the grading and categorisation of Italian Leather for more detail, but in short we offer three options:
Please note that colours on the screen may be darker or lighter than the original leather's colour.
Tender - Premium Leather
Tender is a natural, top grain leather approximately 1.2mm to 1.3mm thick. It is silky soft to the touch and looks semi-glossy, it has a mix of small and large grain. As a natural leather, there may be small differences of colour, tone and grain, certifying the authenticity and uniqueness of a top-quality, natural leather product.
How to clean Emotion leather: For ordinary cleaning, use a dry cloth. Only occasionally use a slightly moist cloth and a gentle soap, avoiding any pressure while cleaning. It is advisable to dry naturally - exposure to light and heat must be avoided.
Orion - Premium Leather
Orion is a natural, half grain leather approximately 1.5mm to 1.7mm thick. It is soft to the touch with a matte look and an irregular grain. As a natural leather, there may be small differences of colour, tone and grain, certifying the authenticity and uniqueness of a top-quality, natural leather product.
How to clean Orion leather: For ordinary cleaning, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth. Sticky or highly staining food such as ketchup, coffee, jam or similar substances, need to be removed immediately with a spatula where possible; after that, it is recommended to use water and neutral soap, thus producing some foam, and rub in a circular motion without applying any pressure. Remove the dirt with a slightly damp sponge and dry naturally, avoiding the use of blow-driers and other artificial heat sources. The same procedure can be applied in case of sweat stains or wear and tear. On this leather, London Furniture Company's standard leather sofa cleaning kit is recommended.
Safari - Premium Leather
Safari is a natural, full grain, embossed leather approximately 1.2mm to 1.4mm thick with an elegant, vintage look. It has a slight suede effect to the look and touch. Although this is a harder wearing leather, it can be scratched, but this can be reduced by rubbing the affected area. As a natural product, there may be small differences of colour, tone or grain, certifying the authenticity and uniqueness of a top-quality product. This leather will age well, as small scratches will only accelerate the 'vintage look' of the leather.
How to clean Safari leather: To keep the beauty of this leather unaltered, it is recommended to use a soft, dry cloth only, as leather generally absorbs any kinds of fluids. These need to be dealt with immediately in order to avoid any permanent damage. Avoid exposure to intense light or heat that might accelerate colour loss of tone variations.
Suave - Premium Leather
Suave is a natural, grain leather approximately 1.2mm to 1.4mm thick. It is soft to the touch and has a semi-shiny surface, characterised by an evident though irregular grain. The natural origin of this product may be evident by slight variations in tone or small, natural marks on the surface.
How to clean Suave leather: For routine cleaning, use a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth. It is highly recommended to keep this leather away from direct, intense heat or light sources.
Soul - Premium Leather
Soul is a full-grain leather approximately 1.2mm to 1.4mm thick on average. It is particularly soft and silky to the touch. The surface of this leather is hand buffed which gives this a vintage look, with a scratchy/suede effect, making this similar to a Nubuck leather type. The surface shows light areas alternating with a darker section. Different colour shades might be present on the leather, making this slightly irregular.
How to clean Soul leather: For ordinary cleaning, use a soft, dry cloth only. Avoid direct, exposure to light and heat, which may accelerate discoloration and colour changes. This is a natural process for this kind of leather as time goes by. This leather undergoes a water repellent treatment on the surface. Incase of spills liquids are not absorbed immediately. If there is immediate action, there is a good chance that the cover wont get heavily soiled. In such cases it is highly recommended to remove rather than dabbing the spilled liquid to avoid being absorbed.
