Although some argue that faux leather can be very durable, especially the poly materials, it’s also true that it wears out more quickly than real leather and, when it does, the view is not pretty.

But perhaps the most important aspect is the fact that faux leather doesn’t breath that well, especially the PVC types. This is really important in the case of a bed. In addition, it doesn’t have the same hypo allergenic qualities as real leather, another important aspect in this case.

One solution would be to only opt for a faux leather headboard white the bed itself has a wood frame. The zeno bed is a lovely example in this case. It has an elegant design inspired by traditional beds but, at the same time, the headboard is available in a variety of different colors which makes the piece quite versatile.{found on lorigine}.
