Top Grain Leather

Leather Sofa ArmCustomers ask me all the time “is that real leather?”  At Saugerties Furniture the answer is always YES!  We only offer top-grain leather on all of our Smith Brothers of Berne Leather furniture.  Sofas, chairs, recliners and sectionals are all available in 100% top grain full leather.  Why top grain only? Only top grain leather because of its inherent durability, comfort and longevity.  A quality leather sofa will see many years of use with annual conditioning.
There are a lot of leather substitutes on the market today and many are deceiving to the customer.  Some of the most popular are:
Bonded Leather
Bonded leather is not leather at all, rather a vinyl sprayed on cotton fabric with leather scraps ground up and sprayed on the back of the fabric to resemble leather.
Bicast Leather
Bicast leather is again not really leather.  Bicast is a leather split with a thick coat of PU or polyurethane applied to the surface to enhance texture and create shine.
Corrected-grain Leather
Low quality leather with an artificial leather look applied to the surface of a hide that would be otherwise not useable for furniture. 
These leather substitutes offer cost savings at the expense of long-term usability and comfort.   Cracking, peeling, and seam separation is a common complaint.  Lack of breathability is another issue with synthetic leather.

Smith Brothers Conversation Sofa

Let’s have a conversation about this beautiful conversation sofa.  Looking for a new look for your living room, a conversation sofa can breath new life into a tired decor.  Create a seating area for your family to enjoy by using two conversation sofas facing each other or place two chairs facing the sofa for a welcoming conversation area. Conversation sofas can take the place of sectionals in rooms that can’t quite handle the bulk but where a more desirable “come together” piece is needed. We carry many styles of conversation sofas all available in a choice of fabrics delivered quickly to your home!
Visit us 7 days a week for all your living room sofa, chair, recliner and sectional needs.  To see our selections at the store, see and Brothers Conversation Sofa
