Modern Classics Furniture purchases leather from a variety of tanneries in order to provide our own collection of colors. Not all leathers are available for use on all products. Each product in our catalog will indicate which leather is available for that piece of furniture. We have divided our leather selections into two groups, Standard and Premium with different price levels within each group. All the leathers we offer feature:
All our leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use. To read more about leather, read our A Guide to Understanding Upholstery Leather: A Primer. Also, we are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands. Click on any of these swatches to see an enlarged view.
Below are the color swatches of the leather colors we offer, along with price level, Level 1 being the lowest cost and Level 4 being the highest cost. Not all leathers are offered on all products and have varying price levels, so please refer to each individual product page for which leathers are applicable. Our Standard Leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, aniline-dyed, and then color corrected with a slight embossing to create a more uniform grain pattern. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are also top-grain, aniline-dyed but have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained.
