Make Yourself Comfortable
When shopping for leather furniture, do a little bit of online research and get an idea for the particular styles you’re interested in. When you go shop in person, don’t be afraid to make yourself comfortable. Sit, recline, lie down–do all the things you’d do when relaxing at home. Run your hands across the surfaces to get feel for the material. You’ll be spending a lot of time on your new leather furniture, so you want to make sure it’s perfect for you!
