With a layer of protection applied that doesn’t completely detract from the beautiful, unique features of the natural leather, semi aniline offers the best of both worlds. You’ll still notice the natural leather characteristics like scars, scratches and brand marks, but they won’t be as obvious as those featured on aniline leather. If you’ve got a busy family and like to eat your dinner on the sofa from time-to-time (we all do it!) then the light protective coating on this leather could save the day. 

It’s worth factoring into your buying decision that a semi aniline sofa will require a medium level of maintenance - so it’ll take a little care to keep it looking its best. You may see some aging and signs of a much-loved sofa as the years go by, but following the manufacturer’s care instructions will always prolong the life of your semi-aniline leather sofa.

Like all real leather, your semi aniline sofa will need to be conditioned at least twice a year to prevent cracking and drying out. 

Why not invest in a specialist leather care kit to keep your semi aniline leather in great condition? Care kits cost £39 each or two for £60. You can pick these up in store or order them over the phone on 0800 140 40 40.
