Choose 'natural finish' leather for a classic, traditional look.
Our ‘natural finish’ leather allows the characteristics of each individual piece to show through. Designed with you in mind, our leather provides a lovely warm, soft finish that offers comfort as the exact tone and grain varies from piece to piece giving every sofa a slightly different feel.
Choose 'cherish' leather for a sleek, modern look.
Our ‘cherish’ leather has a painted surface to give a more uniform look. This technique still allows the leather to ‘breathe’ so it’s warm and soft, allowing the added benefit of an even more resilient every day wear.
