Buying custom leather furniture doesn’t just mean picking a leather and leg color, custom means ordering something built to your specifications.  This customer in Canada took advantage of of one of our strengths when asking us to build a set of 84″ Braxton Leather Sofas in a 40″ depth.  We offer this style configurable on the site in both 43″ and 46″ depths, but also offer custom depth with our leather furniture.

After originally ordering and “Leather To Be Determined” (in order to get her order moving while samples were sent) this client landed on our Italian Glove Chestnut Full Grain Leather. This leather is Full Aniline dyed, and is the same classification or leather as our Italian Brompton leather (from the same tannery). As with Brompton, natural markings and color variation will be present, and this is a waxed pull-up leather that will distress and develop an amazing patina with use. It really just doesn’t get much better than this!

Langston 156″ and 108″ Leather Sofas in Italian Brompton Cocoa

We know a family in Carson City, Nevada that is going to fall in love these two Custom Langston Leather Sofas.

In order to fill a very large seating area, we customized our 11ft. Langston Leather Sofa, adding 2ft. to create an overall length of 13ft.(156 in.)! At a mere 108″, the other piece would be the love seat of this couple 🙂

This client selected our true 8-way hand tied suspension, and our Italian Brompton Cocoa leather for the cover. We know these pieces will serve them well for a long time to come!

Braxton Leather Sofa with Custom Placed Nail Head Trim in Berkshire Chestnut

Braxton Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Chestnut with Nail Head Trim

This Braxton Leather Sofa made its way safely to San Mateo California where the new owner is surely breaking it in!

This customer started with our 84″ Braxton, in the 46″ depth and selected our Italian Berkshire Chestnut leather.  To add another element of style, they opted for us to apply nail head trim in antique brass finish. After selecting their own specific placement for the trim, our craftsman hand applied each nail as a part of the last step of the production process.

Italian Berkshire is an interesting leather that begins it’s life essentially as Brompton, but the tannery then tumbles the hides in drums to distress and open up the hand of the leather, creating a thick, soft feel without the shine of Brompton.

This sectional was upholstered in Brompton Classic Vintage and this customer opted for the back cushions “with ears” which gives this model a slightly more traditional look.

This customer had very specific requirements, which we were happy we could accomodate! (we’re always up for a challenge, on any of the custom leather furniture styles we produce)

1) Height:
The back frame of the sectional needed to be no higher than 28.5″ in order to allow opening of shutters for access to open and close windows. CHECK

2) Depth:
This customer required each side of the sectional to have a different depth. The LAF (Left Arm When Facing) side of the sectional was built with our 46″ depth, but because of space requirements, the RAF (Right Arm when Facing) side was to be built with a depth of 38″. CHECK
*This required some adjustment to the length of the left piece, but our team delivered!

3) Length:
The RAF (Right Arm when Facing) side needed 10″ added, bringing the overall length on that side to 115″L. CHECK

Braxton Grande Corner Sectional in Brompton Cocoa

Braxton Grande Corner Sectional with Custom Rounded Corner

Just delivered to Georgetown, TX, this is one of our Braxton Grande Corner Sectionals in our 46″ deep version, but with a twist. This customer wanted to round the corner, just slightly, to improve the traffic path behind the sectional in their home.

As with all customized orders, we started with a rough sketch, then we created a curve beginning 2 feet out in each direction from the back corner, creating a subtle rounded corner. The customer also chose to reduce the amount of cushions on each side of the corner from 3 cushions, down to 2 wider cushions. They also preferred that we break the corner back cushions into 3 smaller cushions making the curve complete.

This one is tailored in our Brompton Cocoa Mocha leather, and this first image above is a great illustration of how much darker Brompton Cocoa Mocha is before you distress it. Brompton lightens dramatically wherever the leather is scratched, stretched or creased, which creates the dramatic distressed look that customers love about our Brompton Cocoa Mocha. When we ship furniture in this leather, it’s 6-8 shades darker as it has yet to be distressed. That part is up to you, so find an excuse to sit on yours!

Check out these next few images showing this sectional’s humble beginnings as a hand drawn, rough sketch, to solid hardwood frame, and on to be upholstered in Brompton leather with down cushioning!:
