Buying new furniture is an investment that takes quality, appearance, price, and durability into account.

We are proud to stock the highest quality top grain leather and we are confident our furniture is worth your investment.
Why Top Grain Leather Matters
Low quality leather may look okay at first but it is sure to cause buyer’s remorse. Top grain leather looks great, ages well, and can last for decades. Here are a few tips to help you recognize quality leather when you see it:
- If it smells like chemical adhesive, avoid it. PU leather is a bicast leather with a coating of polyurethane on top. This synthetic leather is significantly cheaper, both in price and in quality. The friction of daily use will cause the surface of your sofa to split and crack, giving it a significantly shorter lifespan.
- Watch out for terms like bonded, reconstituted, or blended leather.This particular leather is tricky. The top of the material is made from leather by-product, coated with polyurethane, and stamped to create a natural leather-like texture. The bottom, however, is fabric. The leather scraps and fabric have been joined together with glue. This leather has about a five-year lifespan and is extremely difficult to repair since it consists of scraps.
- The Top Grain Leather we recommend. Your leather furniture should be able to stand up to daily use without wear and tear. Leather Expressions offers three kinds of genuine leather: maximum protection leather, performance leather, and natural leather. We guarantee we have top grain leather furniture that will suit your home.
