Hancock & Moore leather 'City Sofa' -- I have questions
I just looked at the Hancock & Moore "City Sofa" (83" long version) leather sofa at a Stickley Furniture store. But this particular sofa at Stickley's is only offered as a marriage of pre-cut leather to the frame. Plus, you only have a choice of two colors of protected leather--Henna or Taupe. The sofa in the store has the Henna colored leather. The price of the sofa is about $2,400.
What exactly is pre-cut leather, and are there any negatives to having pre-cut leather on a sofa?
I don't understand why a Hancock & Moore City Sofa is offered as a marriage of leather to frame with only two choices of leather colors...can someone explain this to me? On H & M's website, this sofa is shown in other leather colors, but at Stickley, it can only be ordered in Henna or Taupe pre-cut leather.
Does anyone happen to know what grade this pre-cut leather is?
Is about $2,400 a reasonable price for the sofa I described in pre-cut leather?
If anyone owns a "City Sofa," how comfortable have you found this sofa to be? How well do the standard seat cushions stand up over time (for example, does the foam tend to break down)?
I've never owned a leather sofa or chair, so I'm interested in knowing some of the pros and cons of leather vs. fabric upholstery and how comfortable or uncomfortable protected leather feels against your skin (I know different grades of leather feel softer than other grades).
Thank you so much for any feedback and advice. I have to make a decision very soon on buying a sofa.
