Sofa beds are undoubtedly one of the most useful pieces of furniture around, and if you’ve been wondering if you can get leather sofa beds, the answer is yes – and we’ve put the best of them in one spot for you.

A leather sofa bed is a stylish solution for unexpected guests and impromptu movie nights. But unlike sofas upholstered in fabric, leather styles are easier to keep clean, tough enough to go the distance and they have a timeless elegance that’s impossible not to love.

Why get a leather sofa bed?

  • Easy to clean – Unlike fabric, which marks very easily (especially in light colours), leather resists spills and splats; simply wipe it down with a damp cloth for clean up after those movie snacks.
  • Durability – Leather goes through some serious tanning processes which make it highly resilient. This is why leather sofa beds are considered to be more hardy than fabric options.
  • Timeless style – The smooth and sleek surface of a genuine or faux leather sofa bed gives it a classic look that has a place in every home.
  • Versatility – After a sofa bed that works well with your favourite boucle armchair? Leather usually comes in neutral colours that pair beautifully with most other types and colours of furniture.
  • It ages beautifully – While a fabric couch will often sag and become stained, leather just gets better with age.
