Leather Furniture Ranking


Many brands have cropped up and fallen by the wayside since we opened our doors in 1982. Others brands continue to be consistent performers and leaders in the industry year after year.  Over the past 30 years, we have sifted through and eliminated all the brands that do not meet our rigorous standards of quality and value, to be able to confidently offer you only the finest the Leather Furniture industry has to offer.

There are many different opinions as to which brands are best. It depends on many lifestyle factors, your budget and how long you want the furniture to last. We have developed this list to help you to decide for yourself which brands are right for you.

These ranking are subject to change. Each year we attend the Highpoint NC furniture market and reevaluate these brands. If they have improved, we promote their ranking. If they have begun to cut corners with their manufacturing, the brand will be downgraded in our rankings.

Other entities may have their own lists of rankings due to their own personal experiences but they are unlikely to differ too greatly from these lists if they are being as fair and impartial as we have tried to be here.

* Ekornes is sold at the minimum amount allowed by the manufacturer.
See Close-Out Room for exceptions.
