Seeking reclining conversation sofa - is Arizona Leather good?

arielitas_momSeptember 5, 2008

Greetings all - I'm looking to get rid of my family room loveseat and chair and replace it with a single piece.

The sofa will be floated in the middle of the room facing an entertainment center. I was thinking that a curved sofa would be nice as I didn't want a wall of sofa to be the first thing you see when you enter the room. A conversation sofa would give me the angles I'm looking for, but most seem to come with ottomans, not recliners.

The only ones I've seen so far with recliners on both ends is made by Arizona leather (which I think might be the same as Omnia leather, but I'm not sure...others on the forum have said that Arizona Leather is the same as Elite, but I don't see anything like what I'm looking for on their website).

Are Arizona Leather sofas good quality? They seem to be sturdily constructed and they're made here in California with what looks like nice quality leather.

Can anyone point me in the direction of any other manufacturers or should I just be grateful that I found what I'm looking for?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Omnia Leather recently teamed up with Kathy Ireland Home. I wasn't aware that Omnia made furniture for any other companies, but comparing the two web sites (Omnia and Arizona Leather), it looks like the styles are identical.

Omnia definitely makes a fine quality product. And it's so rare these days to find a furniture company that still manufactures its products in the USA. Omnia also has an outstanding warranty.

Does Arizona Leather have many floor models available to see? We've been shopping in the Las Vegas area for a motion sofa and loveseat, but due to the economy, most high-end pieces are not kept in stock. And I can't imagine buying a sofa without being able to sit in it first! We're looking for 100% leather (no vinyl, no bicast, no "pleather") with a nicely-finished back, since the pieces be in the middle of the family room, not against a wall.

I can't help you regarding the comparison of Arizona Leather to the Elite brand you mentioned.

Did you ever purchase a replacement piece?
