500 UNIQUE LEATHERS
Our extensive gallery boasts more than 500 leathers. As creators of America’s finest furniture,
our line of leathers includes the best of everything: top-grain leathers, exotic animal skins,
metallic and embossed leathers. Our leathers are selected for a natural appearance, with
distinctive markings that impart unique character. The natural surface of leather is like
a landscape, with varying textures and shadowy furrows. These distinctive features
are unique to genuine leather, a product which is real, not engineered.
As with all things in nature, no two hides will be exactly alike.
