Beauty and robustness for decades

Different upholstery types

Upholstery leather hides need to be as versatile as their end products. Soft, smooth with a pleasant gentle touch or robust, soil-resistant with perfect physical protection abilities. With whatever characteristic, leather is the perfect choice for upholstery articles. Its durability and longevity provides leather with a lot of advantages compared to alternative materials for upholstery. With proper leather care, upholstery leather will remain beautiful for many, many years and will not need replacing like textiles and fabrics. A leather sofa for example may keep its beauty for decades.

Trends for our living rooms

In recent years, we saw several home furniture trends where leather perfectly matches. One trend is nature and landscapes invading living rooms, terraces and outdoor seating. Wooden chairs in combination with leather for example or the warm and pleasant nature of leather used for carpets, wall decorations or even ceilings. In combination with numerous green plants, it creates the illusion of bringing nature to one’s own living room or outdoor lounges. Leather as a natural and sustainable material to be used to create modern living areas flatter every home's ambience.

Leather in public area and transportation

In public transport, waiting areas or airplanes leather is appreciated because it is easy to handle and clean. At the same time it provides high physical protection abilities, e.g. flame protection and very low combustibility. Leather treated with the TFL PROTEC technology ignites less easily and the flame spread is significantly reduced. This adds life-saving minutes to the escape time. Flame retardants can thus make a decisive contribution to the fire safety of buildings, furniture, public transport and cars.

TFL product development offers a lot of solutions for high protection and easy care. TFL provides the best solutions for making robust anti-soiling, easy to care and versatile materials to be used for upholstery of all kinds.

Upholstery for Automotive

The trend of cosy pleasant seating also invades car interiors. We see that the inside of a car can become a modern living room in the future, when cars drive autonomously and "drivers" will be able to use their journey for reading or even meetings. We see that the car interior of the future will adapt to this change and automotive interiors will be rather furnished like a living room. Leather is the perfect choise: sustainable , easy to clean and pleasant to sit on .

Now or in the future, TFL provides the right solutions for automotive seats and car interiors .
