{leather sofa}



I've had a few people ask about where we got our leather sectional so I thought I would share.  This was a very hard purchase for me to make because I usually am not a fan of leather sectionals and I am very picky but it made so much sense with a large family of kids.  All of the ones I liked came with a very steep price tag.  Then I came across an Bari leather furniture, a company who focuses on leather sofas.  When researching I found out that one of manufacturers they carried use to produce for Restoration Hardware a few years back.  RH decided to switch manufacturers but pretty much kept the same design but had to tweak it as the old manufacturer had the copyright to the original design.  With all that being said the sofas run half of the price of Restoration Hardware.  They had excellent customer service and would use them again.  This particular manufacturer had great leather samples to choose from and got the leather samples to my house in a jiffy.

The sofa that we actually purchased was from this same manufacturer but was called the Di Angelo.  The above Bronti didn't fit into the space we needed for.  Hope that helps.

This is a gorgeous sofa~ and I sell them too. From the comfort of my own home, in my jammies! In fact, it appears that we have the same manufacturer. I am a young, savvy mama with a little blog about how we do this. I love your blog and am always excited to read new entries. You inspire me everyday! If anyone is interested in a sofa (including the chesterfield at the top of your blog), we use Restoration Hardware's old manufacturer (the one who created the Lancaster) and ship around the nation. There's no sales tax unless you live in Wa, where my business is based. Jen at www.sofasavvy.blogspot.com

Hi.. this is Kelly from Denver. I looked into the company, and loved their selections, but unfortunately none fit my space (I have VERY strict/tight measurements). Thanks for all your help though. Maybe someday I can buy one!

Hi Christina,
Thanks for the nice comment! I was really just sick of getting ripped off, so I found a way to start my own business and pass the savings along ot everyone else. We do custom sofas, chairs, ottomans and headboards. If it's got fabric or leather, we probably do it! And we can accommodate super specific measurements for those tight little rooms.

Basically, you find a piece that you like, email it to me with any modifications you'd like to make, and we get you a price. Our manufacturer prototyped items for Restoration, Pottery Barn, Z Gallerie, Crate and Barrel and West Elm! And everything is made here in the good old USA!!

With twins and triplets (bless you!!), I just shake my head at how great you look. You're dressed! You're gorgeous! I've got one daughter and I usually feel like a shabby mess. You make it look so easy... and beautiful!!! I think you might be part Super hero.

It is very difficult as to quality of a leather sofa...many are just old ones gone into restoration processes.Thanks about the Bari range that you are introducing.

With a good quality Leather Sofa our home will look good and the level of comfort will be maintained. As a result of this we can choose the place where we can buy our new leather sofa from and see how well it blends in with our home decor. The best thing about leather sofas is their versatility. A Leather designer sofa is also resistant to stains and fading, especially if it is well kept. Leather sofas have a lot of fringe benefits along with the sense of style that they bring in your home.

Was this sofa made from faux leather? I can tell the sofa’s texture by just looking at it. It's looks shiny, but if you take a closer look, you will see that it’s a little rougher than expected.

Leather is basically created via tanning, consists of a process that alters the protein structure of the skin of fermentable animal rawhide. Many of you may know it but for those who don’t, the rawhides used for making leather is primarily cattle hide. The procedure of producing leather is really tedious and quite expensive, thus the cost of such furniture is bit expensive. However due to the elegance and several other factors, the demands for leather-made furniture has always been constant. In spite of the cost factor, many people still prefer them above everything because of several advantages that it offers. Apart from the fact that leather is one of the sturdiest materials around, it is quite elastic as well. It does not stretch out of shape even when exposed to various environmental conditions.
