Damage to leather furniture comes in many forms. Some types of damage you can avoid, but accidents still happen. Other types of damage are due to age. Either way, repair is generally possible.
Below are some of the most common causes of damage that require leather furniture repair:
Tears and cuts are common with leather furniture. Whether it’s due to car keys or any other sharp object, you may find yourself with a hole or tear in your beautiful leather furniture. Repairs can be done for 2” or so of damage. For more damage than that, the panel may need to be replaced with new leather.
Stains and fading often happen to leather over time. This is especially so for certain types of leather like anilines and semi-anilines. If your furniture is near a window over time the leather may begin to fade. With that said, even indirect light may cause fading.
Leather can also be stained over time from the oils in your skin and touching the leather after eating oily foods.
While prevention is the best option, restoration is also possible. A professional leather specialist can apply a color coat that brings your leather furniture back to life.
Scratches are another common issue that require repairs. Scratches can occur for a variety of reasons. Even buttons on jackets and pants can lead to scratches. Whatever the case may be, scratches are hard to avoid, but not impossible to remove.

Split seams are a pretty common form of damage for older pieces of leather furniture. Over time, the leather wears from use and—eventually—may split.

If the leather is particularly worn and tears along the seams it is a little more difficult but is often still possible.
