 Over the years I've had the chance to talk to consumers who are unsure if leather is the right material for their home, family and lifestyle.  They're intriuged by the beauty and uniqueness of leather but have either heard a leather horror story from a friend or are just confused by the choices avialiable with leather furniture.  In short, they don't want to make a 10 year multi-thousand dollar mistake if they choose to buy leather. 

      Many big showroom or internet-based retailers don't make things any easier.  Either the salesperson knows very little about leather or there is no salesperson at all answer your leather-related questions.  So here's a few quick tips to calm your fears and help you decide if leather furniture is a good investment for you:
