Our Leather Sleeper Sofa Collection

Sleeper sofas are one of the most practical ways to avoid having a dedicated guest room or having an inconvenient blowup mattress for any quests you welcome into your home. 

But before deciding on a leather sleeper sofa, there are a few things you should take into consideration. 

It's important to think about how much use a sofa bed will get and whether the upholstery materials you choose will stand up to the amount of wear and tear that you anticipate.

Here's some advice for you to consider before making a decision.

What Are The Advantages Of A Sleeper Sofa?

A sleeper sofa can be a stylish piece of furniture during the day, and then you have the advantage of being able to turn it into a bed at night.

But that's not the only advantage.

Save Lots Of Space

Whether you choose a fold flat sofa bed or one where you simply remove the back cushions, it's a great choice if you only have limited space in your home.

Some of these sleeper sofas take up less space than a single bed, but can fold out into a double bed. As a result, you can accommodate more guests without cluttering a room or dedicating a room to a full size double bed. 

No Need For A Guest Bedroom

You might have enough space for yourself in your home but don't have a guest bedroom. This can be a problem if you have regular guests, especially if they stay for a couple of days or even longer.

When you purchase a leather sofa that can be converted into a bed, you'll always have room for guests to sleep over. As the bed can be turned back into a sofa during the day, you'll still have use of your living room or office space.

Flexibility For Unexpected Guests

Unexpected visitors can also be a problem if they need to stay the night and you don't have the room to accommodate them.

With a leather sofa bed, you won't have to worry about having a place for any overnight visitors to sleep comfortably.

Are There Any Disadvantages?

Although a sleeper sofa has a lot of advantages, we also need to consider the disadvantages.

One important point you need to be aware of is that if your leather sofa is turned into a sofa bed on a daily basis, you can't expect it to be as durable as when it's only used to sit on. 

But if you purchase one made from superior leather, it will withstand more wear and tear than any made from inferior grain leather or fabric upholstery.

Best Leather For Sleeper Sofas

You can expect a sleeper sofa to last for a long time if you're willing to invest in superior grain leather.

So let's see what the differences are between the two grain types of leather available.

Full Grain Leather Sleeper Sofas

Full-grain leather is the highest quality available, so you can expect the ultimate in durability. It's an excellent choice if you want your sleeper sofa to stand up to the wear and tear of also being used as a bed.

As only high-quality hides are used, and the tanning process is time-consuming, this is the most expensive leather. But the investment will pay off in the end.

This is because the tough top layer of the hide is left intact. The natural scars and scratches found on the hide can even be enhanced with an aniline or semi-aniline dye to give your sofa bed character and make it unique.

Top Grain Leather Sleeper Sofas

For young families, we recommend top-grain leather. It's also a superior quality leather but has the advantage of being treated with a stain-resistant coating. You won't have to worry about spilling drinks, as most spills can be wiped up with a damp cloth.

As with full-grain leather, only top-quality hides are used. 

But the tough outer grain is sanded down to make the leather softer and more flexible to work with. It then has a smoother, more uniform finish as the imperfections have been removed.

As the manufacturing process is less time-consuming, you can expect a top grain leather sleeper to be a little more affordable than full-grain without it losing durability.

Avoid These Types Of Leather Sleeper Sofas

Whether you plan to sleep on it every night, or if you only need it for overnight guests on an occasional basis, you should avoid sofa beds produced with inferior quality leather.

Here are some so-called leathers to be aware of.

Faux Leather Sleeper Sofa

The first thing you'll notice is the price of faux leather sofa beds in comparison to superior quality leather sleeper sofas. As quality always has a price, you can't expect durability from a fake leather product.

The word "faux" is French for fake, so don't expect a sleeper sofa that will last you for more than a few years.

As faux leather is a synthetic material, it will soon deteriorate with very little wear and tear. First, you'll notice cracks, and then before long, the leather will start to peel.

Bonded Leather Sleeper Sofa

A small amount of real leather is used in manufacturing bonded leather, but only leftover scraps or sub-standard hides. These are first chopped into a powder form then a bonding agent is added. Finally, it's rolled out onto a backing to look like leather.

You can't expect a leather sofa made from bonded leather to last long, as it's no more than a mixture of recycled and fake leather.

The least amount of wear and tear will soon start showing as it's stiffer and thinner than any other leather.

You certainly won't want to be embarrassed when your sleeper sofa starts showing scratches or peeling and flaking.

Genuine Leather Sleeper Sofa

Don't expect a leather sofa made from genuine leather to be the real thing. Although it is made from animal hide, it doesn't have the same quality as real leather.

It's classed as inferior leather as only the softer fibrous leftover hides from other products are used in the manufacturing process.

It actually smells and feels like leather and is really soft to touch. But don't be misled into believing that you have a real leather product that is durable.

This really isn't suitable leather for furniture production.

Different Sleeper Sofa Designs

When purchasing a sleeper sofa, it's not enough just to check out the leather that it's made from. It's also important to look at two types of sofa beds in their overall functional design

Detachable Cushions

The simplest types of sofa bed will allow you to simply detach the back cushions to create a large sleeping area on the seat cushions. Essentially, the seating area can then function as a mattress and all you need is a bed sheet that will fit the size. 

These types of sleeper sofa will typically be a single bed size or a small double that might still be more than enough to accommodate guests for a night. 

The one important thing to keep in mind is that you need high-density foam cushions to make sure that it feels like a comfortable and supportive mattress.

Pull Out Base

With a pull-out base, you'll have the advantage of transforming a relatively small couch into a decent size double bed. There will be a mechanism that allows you to pull the base of the sofa out and then fold down the back cushions. 

Again, it’s going to be very important to only consider high-quality foam to ensure that your sofa becomes a comfortable bed. 

American-Made Leather Sleeper Sofas
