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.

COMMON LEATHER MARKINGS

A. Cattle ranchers use

distinctive brands to

identify their steers but

these brands are rarely

seen on furniture.

C. Pore patterns

(the hide’s grain)

distinguish the surface

of the unaltered hide.

B. Healed scratches

from barbed wire nicks

are common markings

on an unaltered hide.

D. Neck and

shoulder wrinkles

look like furrows.
