Ultra leather wrinkles

When shopping for an AS the other day we saw a 2014 used model and the Ultra leather was a little loose or wrinkled, is that normal? You can see what I mean in the last half of this video we took.

Wrinkle fix

In my experience, Ultraleather will wrinkle on large surfaces. The solution is to add "buttons" that take up the slack. Most upholstery shops can do this but do require a bit of scrap material. See before and after pics.

Our couch has rounded, smooth surfaces, and there are some wrinkles but it has never been an issue.

Still looks great and wears well.

Well the one we are getting has the ultraleather. The buttons look nice too.

Probably installing micro suede with poly backing. That should let the material move without wrinkling.. We hope.

The ultraleather does wrinkle - never an issue with wear or durability for us, simply adds to the lived in look. One note you might want to check the 25' microwave as you called it, in that model it could be a combination micro/convection oven.

Enjoy.
