Share Your Smarts: Products & Practices for Vintage Leather Sofa?

For whatever odd reason, the Craigslist gods threw me a bone on Monday: my dream sofa was listed. Everyone who knows me knows I love leather sofas. And the Borge Mogensen 3-seater IS my dream of all dreams. And it was listed on Monday. And for a crazy reasonable price. And guess what, I got it!

My Borge (aka my baby) is in great vintage condition. It's super comfortable, the mahogany legs have no nicks or scratches, and the leather is a lovely chocolate color. It couldn't be more perfect for my new place.

However, I want to give the leather a little love. For a midcentury sofa, the leather is in phenomenal condition with no rips or tears, but it's slightly dry. So AT readers with leather chairs and sofas, what products do you use to give your furniture the TLC it deserves? I want my new baby to look like a million bucks and need your recommendations!
