7 luxurious leather items and how to care for them 

Luxurious, lounge-worthy leather pieces for staying in or stepping out

What should shoppers be aware of when buying leather furniture?

There are many different grades of leather, but full-grain hide is the best investment. It will last 25 to 35 years. Anything else will last about three to four years and then begin peeling. Companies have learned to shave off leather, and the strength of the leather is in the top of the grain. Without it, the leather starts to peel. It's like blistering. Easy living

Can leather's lifespan be lengthened?

No. There are leather conditioners, but the only way to extend the life of leather is to make sure it's covered in full-grain hide.

How often should leather furniture be cleaned?

Wipe down leather with a damp cloth once a month.
