I would contact the manufacturer about that, because that sounds like a professional would have to be consulted with that, or recover it. I am sorry about that.

You could try using a felt tip pen in the closest possible color and coloring in the spot.

Bleach doesn't actually stain it actually 'bleaches' out the colour so there's no way to 'remove' it. Disguising it would be your best bet - with the felt tip previously mentioned or shoe polish may work if its brown. As its new I would also contact the manufacturer.

I used to own a leathercraft store and had to deal with that problem, for a few customers. You have to recolor the leather.

Do NOT use shoe polish, if it is in an area, which may rub off on someone's clothes.

There is a great product for this, in a spray-on form, called Nu-Life Color Spray, which can sometimes be found in shoe repair stores or online. Unfortunately, you can't really mix this to "match", but they come in a WIDE variety of colors, so you should be able to come VERY close to the color of your furniture.

The great thing about these, is that they have the "sealer" built in, so it's almost a one-step procedure.

The most important thing to remember, when you're matching the colors, is that for one thing, it will look different on each color that you spray it over, and two that it will be a little bit darker, until it dries, so don't panic.

Don't "over-spray" because it will look slightly darker, if you overlap the original color.

I hope this helps and good luck.
