When purchasing a sofa, it is easy to get confused or frustrated at the sheer range of colours, materials and styles, not to mention the various levels of quality and pricing. Be careful not to make a decision on impulse or out of frustration. Here are a few tips to make the process simple and ensure that you don`t end up regretting your purchase.
There are many things that make up a fabric sofa such that it never ceases to escalate the ambiance of living room area for years down the lane. From frame material and joinery to the foam used and upholstery quality, you can choose them all as per your need, and get you dream sofa customized.

So, the lesson I got from that incidence is that when we buy a sofa for my brother`s new house, it is going to be a leather sofa because soon they will also have kids maybe in the next three to four years and replacing it again would have us incur a massive loss.

The below guide will help you to know which sofa set would be better for you whether a fabric sofa or a leather sofa?
You can not buy a comfortable fabric sofa until and unless you know the ABC about the various upholstery or designs that are available in the market. You have to be a savvy shopper who knows all that he wants and has a brief of his requirements and space options so that you do not end up using the sofa as an exercise in frustration.
Covers for your sofa would be recommended if your sofa is a light color, you have kids or if you occasionally have dinner on your sofa. Having a spare cover could save you money and humiliation rather than having to replace your sofa after a while. Covers are not that expensive and could be handy if you change the color scheme of the room and just need to get a new matching sofa cover instead of buying an entire new sofa.
One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area, leather is durable, easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help, minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric, on the other hand, takes a bit more maintenance.
