When choosing between leather and faux leather, it can be tough to decide. If you’re in the market for a new couch or recliner, we’re here to help you make an informed decision. Let’s dig into the differences and see which one is best for you.


All About Faux Leather 

Faux leather can give you the look of authentic leather for a more affordable price (sounds nice, right?) Also, it feels quite similar, but unlike real leather, faux leather comes in multiple color options to choose from.

Plus, faux leather is very low-maintenance – you can clean it by wiping it down with a damp cloth. (Make sure you double check if your cleaner so it doesn’t damage your furniture). If you’re on a budget, have kids, or don’t want to drop as much cash on a new piece of furniture, faux leather is a great option. And at Aaron’s, we have the perfect faux leather living room set options for you.

Pros of Faux Leather

All About Authentic Leather

Real leather has a rich smell and texture. It’s popular due to its durability and its timeless, classic look. A real leather couch or recliner will add some depth to a room with its character and soft feel. Leather is relatively low maintenance as well, since it can be cleaned easily and lasts a long time. At Aaron’s, we want to help you find an authentic leather living room set that works best for you.
