As a leather furniture repair and restoration specialist, I hear over and over again from my clients that they have been using saddle soap on their fine leather upholstery. After all, it seems like the right thing to use, as certainly saddles are made from leather.
Generally speaking, leather furniture doesn't need a lot of attention. A simple maintenance procedure is to wipe the piece down with a lightly dampened cloth at the same frequency you dust the wood furniture in your home. Then, periodically (every 3 - 4 months) apply a quality leather conditioner to instill moisture into the leather. Regularly conditioning your leather will prolong the life of the piece. If you feel the need to "clean" your leather furniture, be sure to use a pH-balanced cleaner appropriate for your type of leather. If you have questions, contact a leather professional.
For conventional look, traditional ideas are the best. Keep the basic color as black and make the detailing work in gold, red or cream. To give a French provincial look, a combination of soft cream with a hint of gold is just fine. You can also try solid white or glossy black. For an Asian flavor, use a beautiful highly polished red lacquer. The final touch for the painted furniture with either layers of beeswax, which has been buffed well or a high-gloss polyurethane gives an elegant touch.
Furniture items without the bumpers might not damage floors made of quality tiles. But let me tell you that laminates, carpets, vinyl and many other types of flooring are prone to damage when you place heavy furniture pieces on them for days and months. Apart from this, furniture items with metal legs will not only scratch and discolor simple floors but also discolor good quality tiles! This is because the metal legs rust overtime and they leave rust marks on tiles. Especially when you wash floors or clean them with a damp cloth, any type of flooring is sure to get rust marks which are difficult to clear off. So this makes adding legs essential.
