Having spent the first 13 of my 20 years in the furniture industry in the leather sector, I have heard almost all the excuses NOT to put leather in the home. From the home or office to your car or handbag, leather has long been a symbol of luxury. And in today’s home furnishings market, leather is now a very affordable addition to any home.
Leather is the most durable of all upholstery options, with an average lifespan that is almost double that of a comparable fabric piece, therefore creating the greatest value for your hard-earned dollar.
It’s also a great texture option to add to to any room to offset the wood and fabric upholstery.
However, choosing the wrong leather just like choosing the wrong fabric for you can cause issues. That is where I can assist. Based on your lifestyle and how you intend to use the piece, I can help you find the leather that best fits your wants and needs.
The implementation of designer colors, along with the more prominent use of nickel or pewter nail heads with darker leather colors, have really added flair to a portion of the industry that has long had a reputation of only being overly traditional and to be honest – a little stodgy.
So come visit our leather gallery to see what is out there. I’ll be happy to assist you.
