Guide to Selecting the Right Leather Furniture for Your Home

Full Grain, Top Grain, Distressed… Leather furniture comes in a variety of types. The Design Team at Alamosa Home has put together a primer to guide you through selecting the ideal piece of furniture to bring comfort and beauty for years to come. Ready to choose what leather suits you best? Read on for more details and product recommendations!

Full Grain Leather – The Powerhouse

Full-grain leather is the sturdiest and most durable leather. It also breathes well and responds easily to body temperatures while the look and feel improves with age. Full-grain is uncorrected leather that has not undergone any processes to alter the hide surface. This superior leather is taken from the outermost portion of the hide. Our Prince 300/301 Relaxer from IMG NORWAY is a supremely comfortable, Norwegian engineered push-out recliner in full grain leather. The space efficient and feature rich designs contour every curve of your body.

Distressed Leather – Aged to Perfection

An aged appearance with the feeling of exceptional suppleness, distressed leather is perfect for households with children and pets. It hides stains well, is resistant to odors, and it cleans up very easily. Our Kensington Leather Occasional Chair features distressed camel leather combined with fabric and nailhead trim. The Kensington is truly a signature piece right at home wherever you place it!

Top Grain – Beauty and Value

Top grain leather starts out as a regular hide. Then the upper layer is separated from the lower layers and is sanded and buffed to eliminate any imperfections. With the top layer removed, the leather has a more uniform finish. One of Alamosa Home’s leather pieces is the graceful and elegant Luna Low Back Chair. An instant classic when acclaimed Norwegian Designer Odd Knutsen introduced his Luna Chair in 1970, its curvaceous legs reach up to embrace you and the simple elegance of the leather cushion cradles and supports with effortless comfort.
