Advantages large enough for the whole family to sit on, and so comfy
Disadvantages expensive, large, attracts a lot of dust and marks more easily than I expected.
We had an urgent need for a new sofa as ours was one my parents gave us, and it had started to wear really badly in places and was scratched to death by my cats, and just not that comfy to sit on anymore. There was no support anywhere.I knew I wanted a leather sofa as I feel overall they are harder wearing and last better, and in terms of keeping them clean in a household with young children and a cat, this was my preference.
I checked out sofas online, and a lot took my fancy, but this one from CSL stood out to me a lot, and I knew that it was the one I wanted. I did go to the shop as well to confirm my choice by sitting on several sofas in the store, and this came out tops.
This is a real leather sofa, which comes in a range of 15 colours. The sofa on the website and on display in the shop was white and absolutely gorgeous, but I knew that I would be forever washing it to have any hope of keeping it clean, let alone pristine.You can also select from one of 32 premium colours, and this would cost £100 extra to the standard cost for the option we have.
From our extensive sofa lounging that day, we found that a lot of sofas have a bit of a design flaw. The depth of the seat was such that for me to sit with the front of the seat touching the back of my knee and my feet touching the floor, then my bottom did not actually go to the back of the seat and it was not comfortable to sit as I could not rest on the back without slouching. I guess you can pad that gap with scatter cushions, but I think it should be comfy in its own right. Probably not a problem also if you sit with your feet up, but when you have guests, most are not likely to do that if they have just popped round for a quick visit.I was highly excited to order the sofa along with the matching chair. I was left waiting a long time of 13 weeks from order to delivery, and this really dragged.
When the sofa was in, something I did notice very quickly is that the soft leather does have a bit of a static cling to it. It attracted the polystyrene which had been scraped off the packaging, and I find that it gets really dusty. This is most apparent on the back, behind the cushion where there is a ledge, and on the chair there is a ledge runs round each side at the bottom of the arm. Basically, the areas that don't get bums sat on them to disperse it. It was recommended I wash it with a damp cloth once a week and I find that it definitely needs it, and it is hard to get it to stay looking pristine.
