- Manufacturer Rankings
STOP... Before you make that leather furniture purchase, this is a must read "Buying Guide for Leather Furniture"
List of most Major Leather Brands and some new companies where they rank as far as quality in the industry.
The following information was compiled from using more than 34 years in the leather furniture industry on a manufacturer, and retail level. The owner created this list to help you understand more about leather brands. Everyone wants to tell you they make the best furniture so at times it can get confusing. We tried to be objective as possible; these are strictly our opinions. We carry many of these products and are not biased; they all have a place in the market. Most every manufacturer feels they make the best product, but realistically they fall into a certain category as compared to their peers. Many factors come into play here (climate, amount of use, size and weight of user, children, application, i.e.: residential or commercial etc.) as durability and lifespan are dictated. Warranties are not always indicative to a quality product, some manufacturers over warranty then fall short on servicing. It is generally recognized that solid hardwoods for framing, springs of coil shape, like 8 way hand ties, and heavy innersprings cushions will provide longer use and comfort than products built with lesser specifications. Always purchase the best that is in your budget and you should enjoy many years of use from your leather upholstery. 1 being poor, 10 being excellent; these brands are ranked on 6 different factors.
