crack and fade the leather, as well damage the framing. Remember to
place leather furniture at least 2 feet away from all heat sources.

prevent cracking as well as mold growth, harmful to both the wood frame
and the leather itself.
– Dusting the leather weekly with a microfiber cloth can prevent the
leather from becoming stiff and rough as a result of dust and dirt build
up. However, you should avoid using harmful household products near
leather furniture as they can damage the surface.

difficult to clean. Remember to be careful when using the furniture if
you have been out in the rain or snow.
