Leather Options

Leather Furniture Direct offers a wide array of leather choices, as well as a broad palette of colors. Our discerning buyers shop the world’s finest tanneries for the most select top-grain cowhides available.

We offer two pricepoints—all leathers are top-grain hide with equal strength and durability. The reason for two pricepoints is due to the selectness of the hides.

Leather is a natural material—no two hides are identical; each accepts dye somewhat differently, resulting in shading differences. Other characteristics may include healed scars from: barbed wire fencing, insect bites, stretch marks, neck wrinkles, as well as other impressions. Expect variations with each hide.

Care should be taken to tend to spills immediately. Regular dusting and vacuuming would be recommended, as well as application of a good leather conditioner every 6-12 months.

The following swatches are just a few examples of the wide range of leathers available. If you don't see the leather you're looking for, please let us know what you'd like.

HIDE MARKINGS
Tanneries inspect and group hides by the amount of natural marking and scarring on each hide. These "hide markings" result from barbwire scratches, insect bites, urine burns and other natural occurrences. Hide markings are normal to leather furniture and should not be considered as defects and actually add to the natural beauty of your leather.

SELECT LEATHER
Hides which have more abundant markings are considered to be less select, and therefore are less expensive; the tannery will apply an additional opaque pigment to these hides in order to make them cosmetically more appealing. This application of pigment will add protection to these hides, which makes them easily soap and water washable.

Hides with fewer markings are considered to be more select—more expensive. These hides are reserved to be used as naked leathers— leathers with no additional topcoat added. These hides will offer the most natural look and the softest feel.
