I’ve had so many faux leather loveseats in my shop, most of them were very damaged and their frames started to crack from the inside, needless to tell you that they were in a terrible state!
And that’s why I would like to share with you in this post the things you need to avoid the most when selecting a faux leather loveseat.
The first one is related to the frame.
This problem is only going to occur when you shop for very cheap ones, the loveseats that are made in Asia with very low quality fabrics and frames.
Most of the time, when you are using a cheap faux leather loveseat, you will find that the frame isn’t even made with wood, which is extremely cheap, but it’s made with very thin metal tubes that are easily breakable and bendable!
Then, when selecting, try to stay away from weak frames, they will lose their strength and durability almost after just some few days of use!
And unfortunately, most cheap loveseats have a very restricted warranty, in other words, you will be stuck with a low-quality piece of trash!
The second thing to avoid is the color.
You should not look for a weak/pale color, in other words, if it’s not pure black, white etc. don’t buy it, stay away from it because the fabric is probably made out of recycled materials which is not very noble and durable from my experience.
Recycling is very good for the environment, but not at my expense! The problem with recycled faux leather is that it’s very fragile and weak, and you should keep maintaining it with faux leather conditioners for a very long time in order to prevent cracks and damages, which is a headache you need to stay away from!
The third thing to avoid is the smell.
If your faux leather loveseat smells bad, then, how can you use it, in fact, how can you enjoy it?
As a rule of thumb, avoid any faux leather fabrics or items with a strong smells, no matter whether it’s bad or good, you should avoid this because smell always means that it’s made out of low quality materials and even if it smells good, the manufacturer probably wants to hide something from you!
These are the most important advice you need to follow when choosing a faux leather loveseat for you, please, if you need more help, don’t hesitate to post your questions in the comment section below, I will answer them very quickly.
