In previous decades, leather upholstered beds were a sign of luxury, sophistication and durability. However, times have changed. Nowadays, in the same way that plant-based diets are increasing in popularity, customers are more and more demanding artificial alternatives to real leather in their furniture. In this blog, we present the Next Divan guide to faux leather bed frames.

What is faux leather?

Faux leather is a synthetic alternative to the material created by tanning animal rawhides. In addition to bed upholstery, this material is used in clothing fabrics, other types of furniture and automobile decor. As well as being vegan-friendly, it requires less maintenance and does not crack or fade easily compared to animal-derived leather.

Furthermore, faux leather offers sleepers the same natural softness you will enjoy with real tanned rawhides. This means that you do not need actual animal products to create a highly personalised statement in the bedroom.

Affordable luxury with a conscience

Customers are more than ever wanting to purchase upholstered beds made from faux leather, mainly because this fabric matches the luxury they are looking for with the increasing demand for non-animal products. Better still, choosing this upholstered bed fabric offers the same kind of simplicity that you will find with animal-based products, but with the reassurance that it is entirely vegan.

Put another way, our beds upholstered in faux leather can be as modern or as classic as our customers want. Check out our website and you will find that they are also available in an amazing range of styles, colours and designs, while bed frames using this material are as robust as other more traditional upholstered models. That’s because you will find the underlying frames to be sturdy and made of wood, irrespective of the fabric upholstered over the top.

Easy maintenance

Compared with other fabrics used to upholster bed frames, faux leather is easy to look after: we recommend vacuuming as well as wiping down with a damp cloth on a weekly basis. You should also rub some appropriate conditioner twice a year into the fabric in order for it to remain supple and to prevent cracking.
