If you have been researching the best upholstery for your recliner, you may have noticed four popular material types that keep popping up over and over again: 100% leather, fabric, polyurethane and high performance fabric. Here, we have laid out the basic differences between each material type and exactly how they work to deliver their own unique – and completely comfortable – reclining experience.
For Longevity: 100% Leather.
If you want longevity, choose one in 100% leather. The natural finish of a genuine leather reclining chair offers a buttery-smooth feel designed to last for more than a decade – and in which you will want to lounge for hours at a time.
For kids and pets: High Performance Fabric.
If you are worried about spills and messes from kids and pets, go with a high performance fabric recliner. Soft and thick – yet breathable – and resistant to stains, high performance fabric is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to bring easy-to-clean comfort into the living room.
