Sophistication. Class. Elegance. Style. These are adjectives usually reserved for some of Hollywood’s classiest actors and actresses. Now, if you want your living room to radiate with same sophistication and style as Hollywood’s biggest stars, consider furnishing it with leather furniture. Leather makes a statement …  it screams modernity, luxury and it’s guaranteed to impress your guests.

But what you probably don’t know is that all leather furniture is not the same. At Connell’s, we’re here to educate you about the different types of leather so you can find the perfect sofa, love seat or recliner to match your family’s needs and comfort preference. Stop in, ask our sales professionals about the various types of leather and consider the following varieties during your next purchase:

  • Full grain leather is typically the most desirable variety.  Full grain comes from the upper section of the hide and is extremely durable, breathable, strong and long-lasting. Plus, because full grain displays the unique wrinkles and scars found on the cow’s hide, it looks extremely natural and homey.
  • Aniline leather is a dyed variety and very comfortable. It’s extremely soft to the touch, porous and relaxing.
  • Antiqued leather pieces are similar to aniline in their level of softness. However, they have been dyed twice instead instead of only once.
  • Nubuck is a variety that has been sanded on the outside of the hide. This sanding offers you an extremely strong and velvety surface that is similar to suede.
