What American manufacturers produce leather sectionals that do not have inferior framing, cushions and leather quality?
Feb. 1, 2021
More and more upper end custom upholstered furniture manufacturers have been switching from solid wood to plywood frames over the past decade. The plywood frames they use are superior to what is found in mass produced furniture.
The cost savings is just too much for some of these companies to ignore. Solid 5/4″ hardwood frames that last 50+ years now cost $300 – $400. A well-built plywood frame that lasts 20+ years costs less than $100.
Here are some American manufacturers that make excellent quality leather furniture. Most (or all) of these companies should have sectionals.
