Experiences with or Leather?

Posted by ilsh127 (My Page) on

Does anyone have any experiences with or leather sofas? Seatcompany has top grain aniline (imported) but made in the USA and clubfurniture also has tog grain aniline and is hand crafted in NC. Clubfurniture has kiln dried hardwood frames. This is at a price point of around $2000. I'm not expecting all the features of an H&M for this price, and quite frankly don't need it to last a lifetime (10 years is good enough). Are these better than the ones that one can get at Costco or other retailers such as Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, or Restoration Hardware? Here's some examples:

Ok, seriously considering this one:

Which looks just like Pottery Barn's Manhattan sofa, but $900 cheaper. Does anyone know if clubfurniture's quality is comparable to Pottery Barn's? Their website says it's better, but I'm looking for an unbiased opinion.

RE: Experiences with or Leather

Found more info on clubfurniture:

Kiln dried hardwood frames
Mortise and tenon and/or double-doweled joints
Sinuous springs
Full-grain, top-grain aniline dyed leather from Italy

No 8-way tied coils (but not expecting this at this price point), but everything else looks pretty good.

Nobody has any experience with them?

RE: Experiences with or Leather

I'm wondering if you purchased from clubfurniture and if so were you pleased with your sofa?
I'm considering the same option.
Many thanks.
