Leather fans are a devoted bunch. What makes us tick? Why are we so crazy about living with leather? Yes, it’s durable, but there’s more to our passion than that. Are we inspired by the timeless cool of the young Brando (think jeans, white T-shirt, leather jacket)? The intelligence of a library stocked with leather-bound books? Or were we simply exposed to rock-and-roll fashion at an impressionable age?
How can one material—leather—speak so eloquently to both the traditionalist and the rebel? The answer is its versatility: its remarkable ability to be whatever we need it to be—while still conveying strength of character and purpose. “Leather is durable and it looks good on any frame,” says one of our senior graphic artists, who wouldn’t upholster with anything else. “And I love how it feels and smells!”
For those of us who worship easy housekeeping, leather also offers a perfect solution: Low-maintenance from the start, it looks better as it ages. And since it’s a natural material, leather breathes; that makes it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In a word, leather is marvelously livable.
If you are a leather person, this is definitely your moment. Many of our leathers are made from the top grain of the hide, the most durable and aesthetically pleasing part. And now more than ever, there are a wealth of ways to express yourself with leather.
For instance, if you need leather fast, we make six sofa families in stocked leather to be shipped in thirty days. Our newest is the Bennett; the others are Carson, Conor, Hudson, Madrid, and Norfolk.
Looking for more options? We’re happy to tailor almost all of our sofa frames in custom leather for you, including those mentioned above. Choose from an array of comforting shades of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and sable. Or go for iconic black. All of our leathers have a desirable depth, subtlety, and variation of hue. If you want even more of a snap of fashion, have a look at our cool snakeskin-embossed leather. And why not consider a white leather to bring freshness to your space?
One of the things we love best about leather is the uniqueness of each hide. Distinctive as a fingerprint, the markings and grain of each one contribute to the authenticity of the beautiful tapestry woven by nature.
