Published 14 March 2018

Faux leather furniture is synthetic or artificial furniture that includes chairs, sofas, and headboard upholstery. Rising consumer preference toward home decoration with proper furniture is triggering the growth of the global faux leather furniture market. Faux leather furniture lasts longer than traditional furniture. Faux leather furniture is made of vegan leather that consists of tightly woven microfibers which helps to increase durability; this is advantageous especially in families that have young children. The synthetic materials that are used in the manufacture of faux leather furniture prevent degradation and the damage that can happen during the accidental spill of animal saliva or beverages. Faux leather can be cleaned with damp towels to remove stains and other marks.
