Leather 101

LEATHER IS MORE THAN JUST THE AESTHETIC BEAUTY OF A NATURAL, UNIQUE PRODUCT.


IT’S ABOUT HAVING FURNITURE THAT REFLECTS THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE.


Leather is the choice you make when you welcome timeless, luxurious pieces into the heart of your home.


The rich history of each hide is an unsheltered one that results in natural scars, marks and imperfections. With leather you get so much more than just a cover for your furniture, you get a story that is as distinct as a fingerprint. This is one of the traits that makes owning leather so special.


When leather is dyed, it captures the colour based on the hide’s individual cell structure. Each area of the hide will absorb dye in varying amounts making it darker or lighter than other areas. When the cushions on a leather sofa are slightly different shades than the back or arms, it simply means that the pieces were cut from a different area of the hide.


No man-made material can compare with the beauty of genuine leather. The inherent advantages of leather, as well as the range of grades and colours available, make leather furniture suitable for every lifestyle.


Unique, natural surface markings ensure every leather sofa is as interesting as it is individual. They’re also found only on genuine leather…and top quality genuine leather at that.
