Pure quality of leather is no doubt expensive. If affording leather furniture is not a problem for you, then you must go for the best quality. A higher grade leather has complete matte texture and is devoid of luster. Lower grade leather is mixed with micro acrylic resins which renders shine to the leather. Leather comes in four different forms, viz, full grain, top grain, corrected grain and split grain. Full grain leather is made up of purest form of hides which has not been snuffed, sanded or buffered. It's also the most durable form of leather and is expensive. Split layers of the hide are separated in top-grain leather variety. Since one layer has been removed, top grain leather is thinner than full grain leather. It also has certain advantages over full grain leather. The former can be maintained and cleaned easily and its price is also less. Corrected leather is given a finish by adding artificial grains. The hide is subjected to treatment for the purpose of producing either pigmented or semi aniline variety. Split leather is also created artificially from the fiber that has been separated from the raw hide. A faux leather sofa is also an alternative for expensive leather sofas. From the differences explained, you can easily make out that top grain leather is preferred mostly by all. You can opt of full grain leather only if price and maintenance are not a botheration for you.
Now as I mentioned earlier, a vintage sofa can be a steep expense, but if you're lucky, you can find a steal. Remember that sometimes, you may have to restuff the cushions, reupholster the sofa, and get the frame refinished and strengthened. All these extras can escalate the cost of a vintage sofa quickly. Even then, if it is still cheaper than a new sofa (i.e., a reproduction), you are in luck!
The faux leather couches and sofas available today have a protective covering. With proper usage, the chance of getting scratches can be minimized significantly. But, they are evident, if you accidentally pierce or bump the material with some sharp and pointed objects. For fixing such unwanted cuts, purchase the faux leather repair kit. The instructions for mixing and applying the vinyl solution will be provided with the kit. So, do the needful steps of combining the catalyst and the vinyl in correct amounts and apply it over the scratch. Wait for the stipulated time (say 12 hours or so) to let it set properly.
