Considerations Before Buying

Not many furniture brands can say they have a true passion for the ritual of leather-making. It’s a timely and expensive craft that, quite honestly, many major furniture manufacturers skip in lieu of less expensive methods with comparable, yet less impressive, results. But for this brand spotlight, we’re taking a stroll down one of the better examples of fine, luxury leather furniture—Leather Italia USA. While still considered newcomer in the market of home furnishings, Leather Italia USA has gained exceptional momentum in fewer than 25 years.

No doubt, this brand’s commitment to traditional leather upholstery creation has been the secret to its success, but how does the brand compare to other big-name furniture brands? Follow this buying guide with Leather Italia reviews to learn more about how this exciting furniture brand and what it can offer for you and your downtime.

Get Familiar with Leather Italia USA

As any craftsperson or creative knows, a muse strikes without notice, and when it does, it can be the start of something truly special. Take Leather Italia USA CEO, Michael Campbell, for example. What began as a background in raw-material manufacturing soon became the opportunity for Mr. Campbell “to provide the highest quality service with uncompromising integrity,” and with that, Leather Italia USA was created in 1997, spearheading quality leather as the brand’s signature muse.

Since then, Leather Italia USA has gained national and global recognition for its fine products, which are sold exclusively through authorized dealers (like us!). That means, each sofa, loveseat, chair, and ottoman Leather Italia creates is treated like an original and not a mass-produced piece of furniture.

Currently, Leather Italia USA makes stationary furniture and a selection of manual- and power-reclining sofas and loveseats, as well as recliners, including select reclining chairs with smooth gliding motion or swivel motion. All Leather Italia USA power recliners (excluding the Joplin and Winnfield collection) feature USB charging ports, power headrests, and a lay-flat mechanism that extend relaxation even further.

Should I Purchase Leather Italia Furniture?

Premium, top-grain leather offers amazing durability and comfort, two values that will add to the cost of furniture lines like Leather Italia USA. While the brand’s pieces will cost more, buyers have peace of mind knowing each product is made using a specialized method designed to provide optimum comfort, a high-end look, and an overall longer lifespan of use than cheaper upholsteries.

That being said, Leather Italia USA has a very specific design spectrum, which showcases clean and modest lines that highlight the quality of the leather rather than putting the focus on an edgy look. While these styles appeal to refined palettes, buyers who are seeking living room furniture with more robust presence might find the Leather Italia lineup more on the understated side (think: gentleman’s study or entertainment room).

Leather Italia USA Performance

One of the more disappointing reviews unsatisfied buyers commonly point out with leather furniture is its tendency to peel or flake after a short period of time. This is the result of what is called bonded leather, a process in which leftover scraps of leather are grinded down to a powder and mixed with vinyl to create a cheaper variation on genuine leather. The look is considerably less expensive than real leather, but what you save in cost, you pay for in performance.

By contrast, Leather Italia USA uses a traditional process that involves carefully splitting and preparing the entire hide, which is later categorized into two fields: leather suitable for its upholstery and second-grade product that is not. From there, the suitable top-grain leather is made into the fine Leather Italia USA seating, ready for showrooms across America.

This art of creating leather may result in a pricier product, but the benefits largely outweigh the cons. For one, genuine leather processed using this method creates a one-of-a-kind look that captures the essence of leather’s appeal. And then there’s the natural elasticity and responsiveness to the body’s temperature, both of which promote a heartier material that is able to withstand daily use far longer than other upholsteries.
