Why Is Leather Furniture Great for Pets

Have you ever wondered why leather furniture is great for your pets?

At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, we think our pets should be as comfortable as we are.

In this article, we’ll go over why leather furniture is a great option for pet-friendly homes.

Pet-Friendly Benefits of Leather Furniture

Leather furniture is durable, easy-to-clean, and the overall best type of furniture for pets.

Initially, you might be thinking sharp claws will puncture your furniture’s leather upholstery.

However, true genuine leather is too thick and tough for an animal’s claws to puncture.

On the other hand, faux or recycled leather is much thinner and vulnerable to punctures and scratches.

It’s important to make sure your furniture is covered with 100% genuine leather instead of faux or recycled material.

Another reason pet owners like leather furniture is because of how it repels odor and prevents stains.

Dander and smells will not soak into leather like they can with other types of fabrics.

Also, most leather furniture has a topcoat sealant that makes it easy to clean.

Leather Furniture for Pets: Pros & Cons

Here’s a list of the pros and cons that come with selecting leather furniture for pet-friendly homes.

Leather Furniture Pros:

  • Resists punctures and is easy to clean.
  • Extremely odor resistant.
  • Long-lasting material that ages well.
  • Comfortable in warm or cool temperatures.
  • Great investment.

Leather Furniture Cons:

  • Typically costs more than fabric.
  • Limited color and pattern options.
  • Has a different feel than fabric.

These are just a few of the reasons to buy leather furniture instead of fabric upholstery.

When you purchase leather furniture, you’re investing in a piece you and your pets will enjoy for a long time.
