When you go shopping for new leather furniture, you’ll find a lot labeled as “genuine leather” or “100 percent leather” but huge discrepancies in price and quality. Unfortunately, most companies can get away with hiding the details in the fine print. If you’re looking for 100 percent leather furniture — as in the real deal, Leather Expressions can help. All of our products are 100% top grain leather, the highest quality leather available.
Everything You Need to Know about “Real” Leather
Watch out for deceptive labeling. This is where things can get tricky. Keep your eye out for terms like “bonded leather,” “corrected grain,” “P.U. leather,” or “bi-cast leather.” While all of these contain scraps of real leather, they are actually low quality imitations with short lifespans. Another helpful hint: if something is priced significantly cheaper than a trustworthy brand, it’s probably too good to be true.
Pay attention to leather grades. Thankfully, there’s already a helpful hierarchy of leather grades that lets you know where to find good quality products. Lower leather grades are cheaper for manufacturers to use and it’s difficult to know the amount of organic leather material vs. chemical. High quality leather grades are exclusively used to create high end products.
Never settle for less than top grain. Top Grain leather is the best furniture investment you can make. While lower grade leather furniture lasts around five years, top grain leather furniture can last fifteen to twenty years. Leather Expressions has top grain leather options that will suit any home from maximum protection leather, to performance leather, to natural leather.
