The use of leather products in the interior adds style and elegance to it. Today, a popular material for furniture is eco-leather, which, in terms of its quality characteristics, is close to natural. When choosing an eco-leather bed, customer reviews will help you take into account all the pros and cons of the models in question and choose the best option for yourself.
Eco-leather is a synthetic substitute for natural expensive leather for furniture. The use of the latest technology has made it visually indistinguishable from the real thing. Also, eco-leather is rich in texture and color palette, and at the same time it is inexpensive. For this reason, buyers often prefer faux leather. This makes it possible to adequately ennoble the interior and spend some money.
The basis of eco-leather is fabric, most often cotton. It is multi-layered processed with polymeric materials and eventually turns into a wonderful furniture upholstery.
The advantages of eco-leather are:
- anti-static effect;
- easy cleaning;
- excellent appearance;
- preservation of color during operation;
- no tendency to accumulate dust.
But even such a modern, bright and durable material has its drawbacks. Eco-leather is airtight and does not cope well with thermoregulation. In hot weather, sweat can stick to this upholstery, and in cool temperatures it will be cold to the touch, which gives a feeling of discomfort. Eco-leather is easy to mechanically damage, and it is also prone to deformation from high humidity and direct sunlight.
A good combination of price and quality is the Athena bed made of eco-leather, reviews of which are mostly positive. This model produced by the Nizhny Novgorod Furniture Factory will organically fit into the interior of any modern bedroom thanks to the classic design of the backrest in the form of squares. Its squat design, in addition to stateliness and style, has another advantage - it does not accumulate dust under the mattress. The spacious compartment under the base is lined with fabric for ease of use. The model is equipped with a lifting mechanism and an orthopedic grill, but the mattress will have to be purchased separately.
