Leather, Leather Everywhere!

Do you ever feel like you need a dictionary when you’re shopping for leather? You’re looking for leather furniture and you start to hear works like bi-cast, aniline dye, range marks, top grade, bonded, polished, leather grain…not to mention the wide range in pricing…the mind boggles! How are you supposed to know what you’re looking for? What would be best for you? Well, there is a type of leather out there for you whether you are concerned about the highest quality luxurious buttery leather for your quiet library or whether you have four kids and two dogs running through your life each day with popsicles and fort building at random intervals.

Chad continues our video series and brings in Susan, Schneiderman’s Furniture’s leather expert, for a discussion about the different types of leather and what might work best for you and your family! Check it out and ease your mind.

Serendipitously, on the same day we released our video, this informative column on leather furniture was in the Star Tribune. It seems like leather is on everyone’s mind these days!

Do you have experience with leather furniture? What do you look for in leather? Is it mainly price and style? Or do you want the highest grade leather you can buy? Do you have an active household where your furniture will get a lot of use? When shopping for leather couches and chairs, we recommend answering these questions and then discussing them with your sales associate so you can determine what type of leather will work best for you and your life.

Transforming Your Living Room Without Changing Your Couch

In Schneiderman’s third video in a series on how to create different looks for your living room based on the Wallace sofa, we talk about creating a transitional look. We started with a more traditional look, moved into a casual contemporary look and are now showing a transitional look (transitional is a term used to describe looks that are a mix of contemporary and traditional).

Traditional Styling for the Wallace Sofa

Chad is back with Schneiderman’s Furniture’s second video featuring the different looks for the Wallace sofa. You may recall last week Chad talked about how to style your Wallace sofa in a traditional style with warm tones, nailhead trim (to match the trim on the leather chair and sofa) and floral patterns.

In this next video he’s taken the exact same leather couch that you have invested in for the long haul. This is the type of furniture that you have spent a little more on because you want something that is really high quality.  What we are hoping to show you in these videos is that spending a bit more on an item that will last through the years does not mean you are locked into one single “look” for the rest of your days. With the traditional design elements that you saw last week, you get one impression of what you can do with a great leather couch. Today’s video shows you how you can completely turn this look on its head and make the sofa look completely contemporary!

There you are! Two fantastic looks with one amazing statement piece!
