furniture is nowadays a symbol of style, status and comfort. One
of the major determinants of the quality of a leather upholstered
piece is the type of leather used. All leather is the product of
animal hides. However, these hides vary greatly in their quality.
The origin of the hides, the way in which they're converted to
leather and the method used to dye the hides all contribute to
their value. Like stone, wood and wool, leather is a natural
product, a prized commodity throughout history. Ox hide and
calfskins were preferred for late Louis XIV styles. Fine goat
leather was often the choice of Chippendale and later designers.
Then, as today, cattle leather was the major source because of its
availability, strength and hide size. Larger hides minimize the
amount of seams required in upholstering a large piece of
furniture. No matter the leather you choose, you can be sure that
hide will supply you with years of comfort, style and versatility.
