Repairing an Armchair With Pleather Upholstery Damage?

I have a thin leather or "pleather" material armchair and on one arm there are several lighter marks showing. When you press down on these marks it is clear that the staples in the arm are causing these discolorations. The staples appear to be more raised or coming out. Is there anything I can do to stop this other than taking the fabric off and removing or hammering the staples down?

If you try and hammer the staples back in place this will damage your material on the arm. You can try and remove the under stitching of the arm material and expose the place where the staples are. Use a piece of wood to hammer them down. You can do this direct too. I would then use some heavy tape over them to hold them in place. You might want to use some duck tape on this area. Afterwards, you'll need to stitch the material back in place.

Try removing some of the stitches, put a piece of material in there to cushion the staples, and then hammer down. Remove the material, and re-stitch.
