Leather Furniture Restoration - A Business Opportunity

This blog is intended to offer information about leather furniture repair and restoration. There may be some interested in this field as a business opportunity. Or have a related business like wood furniture repair and restoration and are interested in new revenue opportunities. Consider that the world of leather furniture restoration awaits.

Pent Up Demand

Let’s look at the fundamentals. Over the past 20 years the install base of leather furniture in residential and commercial space has exploded. In the United States alone there are ten’s of millions households and offices with leather furniture. While some leather pieces age gracefully, after years of use the vast majority show wear and tear, fading, staining and other unsightly use related issues. Most people think that their leather furniture has to be sent to the landfill when it reaches this condition. If it was a quality piece then this is not true. If the fundamental fiber structure of the leather is still intact, then that old tired looking sofa can be refinished essentially to like-new condition. Bottom-line --- there is huge pent-up demand in people’s homes and offices all across North America waiting for your attention.
