Why American Leather?

Founded by engineers in 1990, American Leather® was created on the belief that three months is too long to ever wait for a piece of customized furniture. Our founders believed that 30 days was about right to take your order from concept to completion. In the time since, we have set the standard for custom furniture—always to you in 30 days.

What began as a small team in a borrowed facility has grown to more than 600 employees in Dallas, Texas, housed in a state-of-the-art 350,000-square-foot factory.


While impressive in size, our real growth is measured by our innovation, expert craftsmanship, technological advances, and performance. By the dynamic collections, we introduce each year. By our commitment to, and the loyalty of, our retail customers. Finally, by our resolve to do the right thing: maintain U.S. manufacturing jobs, meet our retail partners and consumer needs, and enhance the quality of life of our employees.

Leather & Fabric Choices

Coverings For Every Lifestyle.

We believe that a covering is much more than something that you choose for a new piece of furniture. It’s a reflection of style, life, and your home rolled into one. We search the globe to bring the most fashionable, durable, and beautiful leathers and fabrics to our customers. A wide array of color and texture options ensure that we have the perfect solution for every home.


The softest and most supple of our leathers, these exceptionally natural, full top-grain, full-aniline hides often have “character marks” on the surface, giving each its own unique look and feel. They age beautifully and develop a soft patina over time. Like many of the finer things in life, these light protection leathers require moderate attention to maintain their beauty over time.


It’s not too little. It’s not too much. Medium protection is just right for comfortable living. These leather hides are among the best in the world, and because of their surface coat, there’s a little more protection for all the things life throws your way.


These leathers are exceptionally versatile and offer the most protection from life’s everyday mishaps. Excellent for families with children and pets, the heavily pigmented finish coat serves as a barrier to spills, stains, and fading. We feature several options in this category, depending on your lifestyle needs and décor preferences.
