If you are out to choose upholstery fabrics, colors and designs; there are a few important things that you must keep in mind. At the very top of the list are children and pets. The rest of your home’s décor is another; with sunlight as the third.
When using the term fabric, this is loosely referred to as an upholstery covering that includes leather. But anyone who has ever owned a leather chair will know that fabrics coverings are different. Also, they further realize the big difference as the cat scratches away their leather furniture. It’s not that the cat willfully wants to irk his owner, it’s just that leather is a great scratching surface for them – don’t ask why!
Dogs and leather furniture also do not agree (maybe the little pet can sense that another animal was killed to produce the material!). These animals tend to attack leather chairs more than those that are covered with an artificial equivalent.
Okay, now that you have been forewarned against the enemies of leather, it is time to learn your options with regard to this elegant piece of upholstery –
American Leather always makes use of top grain leather. Top grain is the term that is used to refer to the upper layer of the animal hide. This spells quality and elegance since it is natural leather with zero stiffness.
Every American Leather sofa frame is made sturdy and encased with premium quality leather. Just point to the color that you want and the kind of protection that you need and you’re good. Would you want your leather furniture to be light, medium or highly protected?

The American Leather Patterns and Colors
If you want a wide variety of options in terms of color and pattern, then you are right to decide in buying American Leather.

With so many fabric choices, you can find a pattern and color that you love and then ask our master artisans to create a perfect recliner or sleeper sofa for you.
Do not be tempted to pick colors that contrast, though. Make sure that the cushions, as well as other accessories, match the upholstery fabric that you have chosen. A red sofa, for instance, can be paired with a lighter, plain red pillow or ones that come in red and white stripes. Pick yellow for the throws and you are on the fashion victim lane!

Ultrasuede – Yet Another Great Choice
Each frame can also be upholstered in Ultrasuede. This is a fabric that is highly durable because it has microfibers. It also feels incredible because it was made to look like suede.
