Why Choose Faux Leather Furniture?

There are so many options when it comes to the material to choose for sofas and faux leather is amongst the top few for a number of important reasons.

Depending on the size, design, and feel that you're going for in your living space, faux leather can easily fit in with your other upholstery and will align with the look of almost any interior — whether you're after something soft and subtle or bold and bright, whether you're keen to add a pop of colour or prefer more natural tones.

There are many great reasons to go with faux leather in your living space — so let's have a look at some of the major benefits of this durable and stylish material.

Easy to Clean & Maintain

Unlike real leather sofas, synthetic leather sofas do not need to be regularly treated with special cleaning products, oils and creams. These products are often expensive and the process of using them for the upkeep of your furniture can be tedious and time-consuming.

Most high-quality sofas made from faux leather, on the other hand, can be easily cleaned with a quick wipe of a damp cloth. It is a simple process and can be done in no time at all and with very little effort.

Faux leather certainly leads the way when it comes to which sofa is easier to keep clean. There are no covers to wash or impossible zips to fasten. All you would need to do to keep your sofa clean is use a soft cloth and wipe the surface — either dry or damp, depending on what was spilt onto it.

Another great advantage is the fact that faux leather does not absorb any odours. So no need to bring out the air freshener and sterilise your couch seat for a clean feel and smell if you're a smoker or if you're in a house with pets.

There are various ways that faux leather is created and different types of materials can be used as the base, so make sure to read up on the exact material that your sofa is made of to get the best results when cleaning.

Cost Effective Price

If you want to save some money on your sofa without compromising on beauty and design, then a high-quality faux leather piece is the ideal option for you. Leatherette is a lot more affordable because all of the products used to create it are synthetic and do not require all the processes that go along with the manufacturing of real leather.

At Home Detail, you can find faux leather sofas for up to half the price of a genuine leather sofa, while still being able to enjoy all of the beauty and luxury that a real leather piece would usually offer.

For the quality, durability, variety of design and colour choices that are available, you will certainly be getting great value for money.

Cruelty-Free Sofas

Synthetic leather means that you can enjoy your home in all its beauty and style without any feelings of guilt.

Because the modern faux leather sofa uses 100% synthetic material that is free of animal byproducts, you don't have to worry about what is behind the processes that lead to your comfortable sofa. For this reason, faux leather is also referred to as 'vegan leather', which appeals to consumers that prefer not to use animal products.

So if you're choosing faux leather for your sofa, you can do so with a clear conscience.

Luxurious Look & Feel

Gone are the days when faux leather looked overly synthetic and plasticky. With advances in technology and industry know-how, our faux leather sofas have the same soft feel and look as real animal leather. There is no hard or artificial feel because it is made to have a supple and soft texture.

High-quality faux leather manufacturers spend a great deal of time working on the detail of the material, so you can easily find the detailed grain work and design that you would in various real leathers, even at close inspection. There are different types of faux leather available in our collection, so you will have a choice of which look to go for when choosing your couches.

The timeless design that you desire can easily be made from faux leather and be added to the interiors of your home with all the comfort and style that you are after. Choose a piece from our selection that will fit into your space and complement the feel of your room.

High-Quality Manufacturing

Quality standards in the synthetic material industry have gone through a lot of changes in the last few years and the durability and quality of faux leather goods have increased significantly. These pieces of furniture no longer have the bad reputation of being easily damaged or being of bad quality overall.

Today, there is none of the weaknesses that come with real animal leather (such as fading or marking easily), as everything is synthetic and made to be highly durable. Our collection of faux leather couches will resist cracking over time when taken care of properly and are made to withstand scratches and scrapes. There is also no peeling when using an artificial material like this.


The range of designs are endless and you will be spoilt for choice when choosing your high-quality faux leather couch from our collection. Whatever your interior needs in whichever room or space in your house, you will find something at our online store to fit your style.


Our range has everything from timeless and classic designs in muted tones to modern pieces that are singing out loud in bright colours with absolute finesse.

The colour options available to you are endless when it comes to synthetic leather because the material can be easily dyed and manufactured into various designs.

Whatever your interior style, you will surely find something in our leatherette collection to suit your taste.


When deciding on a design, note that couches can have legs or a solid base. If the design you have your eyes on has legs, they will traditionally be in the form of a strong metal or wooden frame or be covered in the same faux material as the couch.

There are also different seat preferences. Some prefer a seat that is deep while others prefer something more chic and streamlined; some like a sofa that is plush and soft, while others like a firmer seat.

With all of these size and detail options, you will surely find the ideal piece to add to your furniture collection in our range of faux leather sofas.
