5 Benefits of Faux-Leather Upholstery


In an increasingly eco-conscious world, more and more people are seeking out vegan-friendly furniture pieces to use in their homes. While leather upholstery was once the go-to option, faux leather upholstery has become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to its durability and ease of upkeep, which makes it perfect for keeping your furniture looking new without any animal byproducts to worry about. Here are five benefits of using faux leather for upholstery.


From the very beginning, as a company, we have vowed against using any products or materials derived from animals. So when it came to expanding our seating range from steel and wooden benches to upholstered sofas and chairs, we knew that we had to find a suitable alternative to animal leather.

With veganism also on the rise, many people are looking to rid their lives of products that harm animals. Fortunately, our faux leather is entirely animal-friendly – what’s not to love?

Versatile & Stylish

Whether you want to spruce up your living room or update your dining room with new furniture, faux leather is an ideal material for your home. From our sofas to chairs, faux-leather is a great choice for both. It’s also vegan-friendly, meaning it will be accessible on your conscience.

Whether you’re looking to furnish your home or office, faux leather offers a variety of colour choices. Made from vegan-friendly, 100% recycled materials, faux leather provides you with a wide selection of styles to choose from to suit your needs. With so many colour options and easy cleaning ability you’ll have wished you would have found it sooner! It is easy to add style without sacrificing durability, from chairs and couches to countertops and dining tables. The look of genuine leather without all the upkeep! If you have allergies or sensitivities to animal products, faux leather can help eliminate them from your life while still maintaining that elegant look.

Low Maintenance

Animal leather is renowned for being a high maintenance material. The main reason for this being because it can dry out and crack if it isn’t looked after. If you own real leather furniture you’ll know the importance of regularly treating your leather with leather oil. So, opting for an alternative saves you money in the long run.

If you want a beautiful and durable upholstery fabric that requires minimal care, faux leather is your best option. Leatherette is much easier to clean, often just with a damn cloth. What’s more, faux leather fabric can last for decades if correctly cared for.


Leatherette is made from plastic, so it’s inherently durable, since it doesn’t crack or fade over time and can be cleaned by wiping it down with a damp cloth. In contrast, upholstered furniture made from real leather requires regular conditioning treatments to maintain its softness and shine. These products are often made using harsh chemicals that could damage your indoor air quality. Additionally, faux leather won’t shrink or stretch out of shape as quickly as genuine leather—so you don’t have to worry about replacing your upholstery after just a few years.

Lower Cost

The synthetic leather industry is one of growth and expansion. With new manufacturing techniques, faux leather is not only look-alike but also feel-alike. If you’re trying to create a more luxurious interior in your home or office, using faux leather as an upholstery fabric can be a cost-effective alternative to natural leather without sacrificing quality. Most faux leather fabrics are made from polyurethane or vinyl and come with warranties that last anywhere from 5 to 10 years.


There are several reasons why people opt for the vegan-friendly option for leather. The main reason we love is that no animals have been harmed for you to have your luxury upholstered seating in your home or office.
