It is important to look at fabric and leather samples before choosing a material for your sofa because the decision will have a significant impact on the comfort, aesthetics, and durability of your furniture. Examining samples in person can help you make an informed choice by allowing you to:

1. Assess colour and texture

Photos or digital images may not accurately represent the true colour or texture of a fabric or leather. By examining samples, you can see how they look in your specific lighting conditions and how they feel to the touch, ensuring you choose a material that matches your preferences and complements your home's décor.

2. Evaluate quality and durability

Examining samples can help you assess the quality, thickness, and durability of different fabrics and leathers. You can feel the difference between materials and choose one that is suitable for your needs, taking into account factors like daily use, the presence of children or pets, susceptibility to spills or stains and pilling. 

3. Understand maintenance requirements 

Different fabrics and leathers have varying maintenance requirements. By examining samples, you can better understand the cleaning and care needed for each material and choose one that aligns with your lifestyle and the amount of time you're willing to invest in maintenance.

4. Personalise comfort 

The comfort of a sofa is influenced by the fabric or leather covering it. By examining samples, you can determine which material feels most comfortable against your skin and choose one that will contribute to your overall satisfaction with the sofa.

5. Visualise the final product 

When placing fabric or leather samples in your living space, you can better visualise how the chosen material will look on your sofa and how it will interact with other elements in the room. This can help you make a decision that will enhance the overall aesthetic of your home.

6. Compare costs 

Examining samples can give you a better understanding of the cost differences between various fabrics and leathers. This can help you make an informed decision based on your budget and ensure you select a material that meets your needs and expectations.

Overall, looking at fabric and leather samples before choosing an option for your sofa is essential to make a savvy decision that takes into account factors like aesthetics, comfort, durability, maintenance requirements, and cost.
