Some use velvet, some use heavily patterned brocade, and others have silk or leather on them. Either way, the upholstery on the sofa is going to be worn out from regular use. Look for rips and tears or tiny spots where the fabric may be damaged. Look at the way the sofa has been upholstered. Does it have welts and trim?
Leather, thanks to its flexibility, can withstand years of wear and tear and still maintain a brand new look. Microfiber is susceptible to tears and frays in the long run. While leather sofas are easier to clean than a microfiber sofa, staining is a major problem with both. The chances of a microfiber sofa losing its charm and color after a few years is higher, compared to that of a leather sofa. In addition to that, both the sofas are subject to scratching, clawing and spilling, especially if you got kids and pets.
To help maintain the appearance of your sofa it is going to require regular cleaning. Simply brushing dust and crumbs off won+t help keep the quality and search of the leather. Leather is particularly prone to ageing and if untreated for very long periods can discolour. This is why using leather cleaning products is definitely important.
Having said all of that, remember that nothing is ever "carved in stone". The bottom line and the deciding factor is what is best for you and is most conducive to your lifestyle and taste in home furnishings.
