I have had the same leather sofa for the past 15 years. I really love this sofa because it is beautiful and also very comfortable. I was a little discouraged when my daughter poked a hole in one of the cushions with some scissors. I have told her to stay away from the sofa when she is cutting her school papers. Thankfully, I was able to get an appointment with a furniture repair Charlotte professional. Now, you cannot tell any damage was done.
