Just delivered to Menominee , MI! This Julien Slope Arm Leather Sofa is impressive at 120 inches long and 42 inches in overall depth. Adding to the sense of scale is the single, long bench seat with 2 corresponding back cushions.
This Julien is dressed in Italian Brentwood Tan, a leather from the same tannery as our popular Brompton and Berkshire leathers. Brentwood stands out from the rest of the oiled and waxed pullups from this tannery in that it is the thickest cut in our selections (1.4-1.6mm thick vs. Brompton and Berkshire at 1.0-1.2mm). This doesn’t make it better, just different. The thicker cut will require more break-in and it won’t have the same “drape” that Brompton and Berkshire get with time (drape = that rumply worn-in look)
Italian Brentwood Leather is a Full Grain, Full Aniline, Oiled Pull-up leather. Full Grain means it has not been corrected (scars have not been sanded, buffed, filled and covered up) and the leather exhibits natural markings and characteristics of the hides. Full Aniline means it is dyed all the way through, and Oiled pull-up means the hides have been impregnated with oils. These oils act as this leather’s barrier against the world, resisting moisture and keeping the leather both supple and strong. This leather will scratch and mark and just get better as you beat it up, burnishing and developing a beautiful vintage patina over time!
When checking out our Julien, keep in mind that there are two arms available:
Slope Arm: shown here, the arm slopes down from the back, with a slight rise again before reaching the front of the sofa
Track Arm: the arm slopes from the back to a flat horizontal plane all the way to the front of the sofa
Something new, but also familiar at the same time 🙂
Welcome the Oscar Leather Sofa, a new collection we’re launching soon that is based on our popular Arizona Leather Collection. Shown here in Italian Glove Chestnut, a Full Grain, Full Aniline Leather.
The Oscar is essentially our Arizona, but features some subtle changes that resulted from customer requests that became popular customizations for our Arizona:
- Clean, Non-tufted Seats (Seats are Tufted on the Arizona)
- 1″ high legs, with a taller frame box, creating that “to-the-floor” feeling. (Arizona features a taller 3″ Tapered Leg with slightly less tall frame box)
- No Welting on Arms, Frame, Back Cushions, or Seat Cushions (Arizona has welting on all of these areas – a small rib of leather along the edges)
Keep checking back for the launch of this new style on our website, or email us here if you’d like to order one now!

This Special Order Braxton shipped out to Illinois dressed in Italian Destroyed Leather (Ragtime Natural). This unique leather is crafted in Northern Italy from belting leather used by some of Europe’s finest fashion houses and has an authentic worn-in aesthetic with dramatic texture and color variation. These thick hides will continue to soften and mellow with time.
Besides selecting this amazing leather, our customer also opted to remove 20″ of length from the Left Arm Facing end of our Braxton Mini L Sectional with Chaise. This one was built in our 46″ overall depth option which provides a very generous seat depth for the ultimate in laid back comfort. Customization is one of our strengths, and we were happy to deliver!
Make it Custom:
This Beautiful Red Leather Sectional is on it’s way to the Big Apple! This Braxton Mini L Sectional was made with the long side on the RAF side (right side when facing). This customer selected Cushion Option 2 (see diagram below) and added a small matching Braxton Leather Ottoman.
The leather used is a semi-aniline protected leather, finished in Italy and made with European hides. Rich and luxurious, while also durable and protected for performance.
The last option to mention with this sectional would be the “Ears” (see image below). Ears or No Ears, it’s up to you!
