Arizona Mini Leather L Sectional with Storage Ottoman in Italian Domaine Bronze Leather

Arizona Mini L Sectional Sofa with Storage Ottoman in Italian Domaine Bronze Leather - without Tufting - LAF View

Arizona Mini L Sectional Sofa with Storage Ottoman in Italian Domaine Bronze Leather – without Tufting – LAF View

Safe in its new home here in California, this Arizona Mini Leather L Sectional was made without the tufting shown with our Arizona Collection, a no-cost custom option that has become popular over the last few years for this style.

This Arizona Leather Furniture is dressed in Italian Domaine Bronze, a beautiful Full Grain Aniline leather finished in a 5th generation tannery in Northern Italy that displays a variety of natural characteristics and color variation. Once this rich leather breaks in, the feather and down cushion topper provides luxurious softness, with the support of a removable and replaceable foam core inside.

Leather Cocktail Ottomans are often chosen as an alternative to a standard coffee table. Use a tray to hold drinks and food, or remove the tray to use the ottoman with your seating. This customer opted to add the extra functionality of our storage option, with strut assisted open and close.

Arizona Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Cocoa Leather – 96″L x 39″D

Arizona Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Cocoa Leather - raf front view

Arizona Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Cocoa Leather – raf front view

Customers love our Arizona, and it’s easy to see why.  All of the same great specs we use in all of our furniture, but the Arizona features tufted seat cushions.  The tufting makes the seats just a bit firmer than our non-tufted models, but the Arizona still has loads of feather and down comfort in both the seats and backs.

The cover chosen by this customer was Italian Berkshire Cocoa Leather.  This leather is just like our Italian Brompton Cocoa (made in the same Italian tannery, using the same hides), but without the extra step of wax impregnation that makes Brompton shiny.  Berkshire has a more matte finish, and as it scratches, distresses, and burnishes it will develop loads of character over time.  Natural markings, scars and color variation are all a very real, natural characteristic of these full grain (un-corrected) leather hides.

90″ x 46″ Braxton Leather Sofa with Storage Ottoman in Italian Berkshire Chestnut Leather

Extend the seating using a Braxton Leather Storage Cocktail Ottoman – 38″ x 29″ shown in Italian Berkshire Chestnut

It was great working with this customer in Iowa to select her perfect combo; a Braxton Leather Sofa paired with a matching Braxton Leather Storage Ottoman, all dressed in beautiful Italian Berkshire Chestnut leather.

The Braxton Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Chestnut (90″ x 46″) – Perfection

Berkshire Chestnut is one of our more popular leather selections. This leather scratches easily (they blend easily too) but the accumulation of those scratches becomes part of the character as this leather burnishes and polishes, developing its patina over time. The first few scratches can be alarming, but it’s part of the process, and the end result is part of what people love about these oiled pullup leathers. Berkshire is also a full grain, which means it’s not corrected or mechanically altered and it will feature natural markings and scars, which are again part of the character. Berkshire is also Full Aniline, so all of the color is achieved by soaking and tumbling the hides in drums of translucent aniline dyes. These dyes do not paint or cover up natural color variation and markings inherent across natural leather hides, they merely lend color to the natural beauty of the hide.

Braxton Leather Sofa (90″ x 46″) in Italian Berkshire Chestnut with a matching Braxton Leather Storage Ottoman (38″ x 29″) hanging out off to the side

Our Braxton Leather Storage Ottoman is a popular add on option for customers buying our Braxton Leather Sofas and Sectionals. Struts assist with opening the lid to reveal storage, and also slow the closing of the lid for a soft landing. Customers love to use these ottomans as coffee tables, simply placing a tray on the ottoman, and with the tray removed, the ottoman can be used to extend the sofa seating, or even independently off to the side as extra seating in a pinch.

This customer opted for the 46″ depth Braxton Leather Sofa, boasting approximately 29″ of seat depth, and with the ottoman in front of the sofa the chaise effect is hard to beat 🙂

Julien Slope Arm Leather Sofa in Italian Brentwood Tan Leather – 120″ x 42″

Julien Slope Arm Leather Sofa-120 inch x 42 inch-Italian Brentwood Tan-laf front

Julien Slope Arm Leather Sofa – 120″ x 42″ – Italian Brentwood Tan – laf front

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!

Oscar Leather Sofa in Italian Glove Chestnut Leather – Full Grain, Full Aniline, Waxed Pull-up Leather – Front High

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!
