Leather Maintenance Try these tips for extending the life of your leather-upholstered furniture. Caring for Leather Furniture Cleaning and conditioning leather using the Peace of Mind leather products helps keep surfaces clean, soft and supple. It is recommended to clean and condition leather four times a year, more often in dry and/or sunny rooms, homes with pets and high-use rooms. Bonded leather and bi-cast leather do not need to be maintained using cleaning and protection products. Avoid allowing caustic substances to come in contact with leather furniture. Some examples of caustic substances would be chlorine from swimming pools, salts, ammonia, bleach, hair products, and animal flea and tick treatments. Leather surfaces can stretch over time, resulting in a relaxed appearance on seat cushions and the backs of seating surfaces. Sit on the cushions, not the backs and arms of sofas, chairs, etc. Sitting on backs and arms can cause structural damage. Ottomans, recliner footrests, and the end of an opened sleep sofa are not designed to hold body weight; if sat on, these pieces can break. If a (fifth) center support leg is included with a sofa, screw it into place (the middle) to maintain the structural integrity of the frame. Often, the center support leg is suspended ½" above the floor, making contact with the floor as weight is applied to the sofa. Maintain screw-in legs by tightening when needed. Do not over-tighten! Move leather furniture by lifting it. Dragging or pushing furniture can damage furniture and floors. To reduce the movement of upholstery and sectional pieces on hardwood floors, place furniture cups with rubber bottoms under the legs. Cushion Care and Expectations New seat cushions can feel 'firmer'. To accelerate the softening process, carefully walk barefoot on the cushions on a hardwood floor. In time, as they are used, cushions will soften, and can become compressed. Regular flipping and rotating the seat cushions will help maintain their appearance, plus maximize performance and comfort. Like rotating tires on a car, rotating the placement of seat cushions will extend the life of the cushions. Redistribute the fill in back cushions to help maintain the shape and improve comfort. Understanding and Maintaining the Appearance of Leather As leather is a natural product, differences in color, texture and unique characteristics are to be expected. Scarring, insect bites and wrinkles can be visible on all leather furniture. Cleaning and conditioning leather using the Peace of Mind leather products helps keep surfaces clean, soft and supple. The Peace of Mind conditioner, when used in tandem with the cleaner, re-moisturizes surfaces and helps keep them looking their best. It is recommended to clean and condition leather four times a year, more often in dry and/or sunny rooms, homes with pets, and high-use rooms. Leather is not stain-proof. Quickly blotting spills from leather surfaces helps prevent stains from setting. Care should be taken to avoid caustic substances from coming in contact with leather furniture. Caustic substances can cause fading, cracking, peeling and discoloration. Some examples of caustic substances would be chlorine from swimming pools, salts, ammonia, bleach, hair products, and animal flea and tick treatments. Body and hair oil from people and pets can discolor and stain leather. Hand cream, hair styling products can be absorbed by leather surfaces, resulting in a stain. Regular cleaning and conditioning with the Peace of Mind products can reduce damage from surface spills, body and hair oil, and cosmetic creams and lotions. Odors: That "Leather Smell" New leather furniture often has a unique odor. A variety of oils and waxes are used in processing leather that adds to the "leather smell". The odor is not harmful, and will dissipate in a short amount of time. Air out the room by opening doors and windows if possible to reduce the smell of the new furniture. Using dryer sheets, or coffee grinds in an open container, near the furniture can help neutralize any odors. Pets and Leather Furniture: Maintenance is Key! Regular cleaning and conditioning with the Peace of Mind leather care products is especially important in homes with pets.  Please keep in mind that damage caused by pets is not covered by either the manufacturer or the Uniter's warranties. Without care, animal skin and hair oil can roughen and discolor leather surfaces. Regular use of the Peace of Mind leather products will help maintain the appearance of leather. If pets are allowed to lie on leather surfaces, quickly wiping the cushions with a damp (not wet!) cloth can help remove caustic oils. Unfortunately, some cats will claw leather furniture, just as they claw fabric furniture. Cats can be attracted by the smell of the oils used in leather furniture production. Cats can puncture leather with claws as they jump off, leaving small holes in the surface.

Creating a theater experience inside your home has never been easier now that televisions are getting larger, clearer, and smarter. Give your brain an escape from reality and indulge in your favorite television show or latest blockbuster without leaving the comfort of your own home. You have the television, now you need the furniture to complete the room. Seating || For the ultimate cozy experience, a plush oversized sectional is the way to go. Consider one in durable upholstery like Sunbrella so if someone spills you won’t have to think twice about it. Sectionals also give you the ability to achieve a couple different seating configurations. Leather recliners will give you the most authentic look and feel of a theater and come in a few different variations such as loveseats and sectionals. Zero clearance recliners will maximize the amount of seating you’ll be able to fit in the room. Add some cozy blankets and let the film roll. Storage Unit || The size of your television will depend on the storage unit you purchase. Wall units can house most televisions up to 70 inches, sound system, and other consoles. They also give you the ability to add a few personal touches such as picture frames or fan memorabilia. Or if that’s not your style, consider a smaller console that will still keep your accessories organized, but on a minimalist level. Some even have built-in fireplaces for added ambiance and coziness! Snack Bar || For a touch of whimsy and added authenticity, create your own concession stand so good snacks and drinks are only a foot away! If space is tight you can achieve a similar feel with a fully stocked bar cart too!
The children have moved out; now what? You’re not quite ready to let go of the house you raised your children in, but now you have extra rooms that need a refresh. It’s a bittersweet feeling, but there are many things you can do to fill the space. It’s time to reflect on all the things you said you’d do “once the kids are gone” and make it happen! Here are a few ideas to get you started on this new adventure… The Man Cave || Equipped with a projection screen to view the big game, plush leather recliners that have built-in cup holders, pub tables complete with barstools, a mini fridge so you don’t have to go far to replenish, and a shuffleboard table to keep the fun going through half-time! The Home Office || Design an inspiring space that reflects your personality and style and that will keep you motivated! For him: A rich mahogany desk with an oversized leather chair and a file chest topped with decanters of the finest libations of choice. For her: A whitewash desk with a tufted chair and a bookcase reimagined with a few photographs, candles, and of course books! For the Yogi || Transform this room into an oasis of relaxation with a minimalist approach. Soft lighting created by decorative sconces and hurricanes filled with pillar candles will make you feel as though you are at the spa. Create a focal point with a large landscape painting that best suits your personality and will help bring you to that meditative state. Complete the look with a superbly soft shag rug and oversized pillows to create a hygge [Scandinavian word for a mood of coziness & comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness & contentment] vibe that soothes your soul. For the Fashionista || Create the ultimate closet complete with shelving that displays your shoes, a three-way mirror to make sure you’re looking great at every angle, a jewelry chest for all those costume jewels and a hidden safe for the real ones, and lastly a plush chaise lounge (because with a closet this amazing you’ll want to sit for a minute and revel in it).

It's the heart of the home; the place where casual dining meets entertainment and everything in between. For some of you, the family room is the most used room in the house which is something you want to keep in mind when you are shopping for furniture to fill the space. Area Rug || We always say it’s best to design from the bottom up. Starting with the area rug will help you develop a color palette for the room while providing a cozy treat for your feet. Seating || L-shaped and U-shaped configurations promote conversation and provide a clear view of the television. Oversized sectionals will create the L-shape and sometimes includes reclining seats and/or a chaise lounge all in one piece! Another option is to mix and match a sofa (maybe a sleeper if you don’t have a guest room) with a chaise lounge, accent chairs, or a recliner to create a little dimension in the room. Due to the amount of traffic this room will see, aim for high performance fabrics like Sunbrella or Microfiber as they are both stain and fade resistant. Or if leather is more your style, seek out the pieces with a lacquer finish as they will be the most durable leather when maintained properly. Storage || Beauty can meet function with your media storage. Wall units create a focal point while hiding all of those unsightly wires and consoles. Personalize it by adding your favorite books, picture frames, or nostalgic knick-knacks. Tables || The family room table as evolved over the years, with the oversized ottoman topped with a tray being the latest trend. The ottoman is great because when not being used as a place to rest your drink, it can serve as a place to rest your feet. Some even have hidden storage!
