Luxurious Leather

We love how leather makes a room feel lavish. Its fine craftsmanship evokes luxury and sophistication.

But make no mistake—leather’s super comfy, too! So if you’re trying to create a relaxing retreat, try an oversized leather set with a worn-in leather jacket look. It’s so inviting! Or if you only want a little leather, opt for a casual leather ottoman. Your guests will love putting their feet up and getting comfortable. And don’t worry about having those feet on your furniture—when it comes to durability, nothing withstands wear and tear better than leather!

Get to know your grains:

1. Full Grain
This soft, supple leather is desirable because it features the hide’s natural markings, making each piece completely unique.
2. Top Grain
This pigmented leather is the top portion of the split hide. The original grain is removed and the surface is sanded and refinished to produce a consistent grain pattern.
3. Corrected Grain
Imperfections found in the natural grain of this leather are buffed out for a uniform look, and then an artificial grain is applied.
4. Bicast
This easy-to-clean leather features a smooth, shiny, protective polyurethane finish that will give your room affordable luxury.
5. Semi-Aniline
This leather has been dyed with a small amount of pigment for color consistency, allowing the hide’s unique characteristics to shine through. A thin finish is applied to improve resistance to wear and light.
6. Full-Aniline
Typically reserved for the best full-grain hides, full- or pure-aniline leather is dyed completely through without a surface pigment to impart color. It has a soft, natural feel since it has no corrective finish.

Beyond Brown

If you love the look of leather but crave a little color, try it dyed in a hue like ivory, sky blue or red—it’ll really liven up your room.
