Leather furniture maintenance

So I recently got a really cool De Sede sofa on Tutti. Great price, and I'm really happy with it.

Before the purchase I was looking at various ads and a few would mention that the sofa had been treated or some sort of maintenance had been done to it.

This is my first sofa that actually deserves some love, and I'm not sure what is actually necessary. A colleague told me he gets a professional in to do it, another told me there's a leathercare product at ikea for 20chf. Anyone wanna weigh in on the direction I should go? I'm quite naive to it all.

Re: Leather furniture maintenance

Google it. Many leather sofas have a coating so it's pointless putting on care products which are specifically for real leather. Biggest problem I've found is stretching but that depends a lot on the design of the sofa.

Re: Leather furniture maintenance

Here's what De Sede says a out caring for their leather furniture:

Take a look at their FAQ:
https://www.desede.ch/de/20-FAQ

You can buy their leather care products from one of the stores carrying their sofas, list in the link.

They also have a repair/care service. (If you go that route, get a quote beforehand!)

Re: Leather furniture maintenance

I buy leather cream from a shop in the uk, and every few months I lather it in, using my hands to work into the leather, leave it for a few hours then buff. Works very well.
