RH Leather Sofas

We are just in the thinking stage of replacing great room furniture with a Restoration Hardware leather sofa and loveseat. We have not purchased leather furniture before so really could use some help and advice.

I have read various articles on what to look for such as 8-way hand-tied springs and down with foam cushions. We are looking at the Lancaster 72" sofa and 60" loveseat. This is not a large room and the 72" will allow for end tables on either side with the 60" loveseat perpendicular to it with space between to enter the room. A sectional will not work.

Any and all advice on RH, Lancaster, and any of the leathers would be greatly appreciated. No matter where we buy it will be a lot of money and so far RH seems to fill the bill. How much superior, if at all, is Hancock and Moore?

Patty Hancock and Moore and it's construction methods are considered the gold standard in the industry.

Hancock and Moore does have an interesting video on how their furniture is produced on the home page of their web site.

Leather sofas are usually considered more luxurious than fabric sofas. They are also usually more expensive. Most leather used for upholstery is finished leather; it has a protective coating, making it stain-resistant and more durable. However, these sofas do require special cleaning and care.
