In past editions of the News & Neighbor “How To” Edition, I have focused more on a broad level of how to select furniture. As one can imagine, there are many different aspects to consider when choosing furnishings for your home and it would be a very lengthy synopsis if I were to cover each aspect at once. Therefore, I would like to use what limited space I have to focus in more detail on one of the most confusing aspects of buying living room furniture, i.e. leather sofas vs. bonded leather sofas. One of the most commonly asked questions of our sales associates by our customers shopping for a sofa is “is this leather?” Sometimes, it is hard for me to differentiate between real leather and bonded leather.
