Aurelle Home Rustic Vintage Black Top Grain Leather Sofa (Charcoal Sofa)
Based on our intense research into furniture manufacturers we have assembled this list, ranking the top leather furniture brands.  We've identified the most important factors when purchasing a new leather sofa and have ranked each furniture brand on a scale of 1 to 5 for each of these factors.  Here are each of the factors and a description of what each factor entails. Note, we've also provided a legend as to what each numerical factor ranking means for each category.  


Quality - This ranking evaluates the leather materials used by the manufacturer, including where it is sourced. In addition to the leather quality, we evaluate the frame quality of the furniture, examining materials used in building the frame, whether using hardwoods (good) or engineered woods (bad). Lastly, our quality rating looks at overall craftsmanship and suspension quality. 

Value - This ranking evaluates what we believe the ultimate value of the furniture is. Not necessarily ranked on the dollar value of the furniture, but the cost of the furniture relative to the overall quality of the furniture.

Warranty  - We examine the manufacturer's warranty and try to determine whether the manufacturer is living up to its declared warranty standards.  

Reviews - This ranking evaluates the publicly accessible consumer reviews and our discussions with consumers that have purchased specific products from a manufacturer. Are the consumers happy with the design and quality of their purchase?

* Note we are constantly reviewing all furniture manufacturers.  If there is one you think we missed or if you disagree with our reviews, please leave a comment below or get in touch at tom@bestleathercouches.com

Also, be sure to check out our comprehensive review of some of the best leather brands on the market.

Note that in some cases we provide a review/ranking on a store that actually sells different manufacturers...a good example of this is Costco, which sells different brand name furniture pieces.

About the author Tom

When I started shopping for a leather couch two years ago, I was confused and overwhelmed by the information available to me. I decided to launch Best Leather Couches in order to create the best resource for shoppers looking for a new leather couch. I hope you enjoy the site. Feel free to drop me a line anytime at tom@best@leathercouches.com

  1. Thank you for your website and this very interesting article. I love, love, the look of West Elm furniture, particularly their sofas. I have been very happy with small pieces (non upholstered) and accessories from West Elm. However, based on this blog, some external reviews, the lack of reviews on West Elm, and some personal experiences dealing with sales associates in West Elm stores, I am very unlikely to ever purchase a sofa or other upholstered piece from them. So, where do we get the West Elm look but with good quality AND good service at reasonable, not necessarily cheap, prices? Does such a place exist? In reviewing your listed ratings of leather companies, it seems that the best rated companies tend to sell sofas with a more traditional (maybe dated?) look. Available mid-century sofas (leather or not) seem to be attractive but poorly made or well made but astronomically priced and available through designers.

    1. I agree it is a hard balance. I’ve had good luck personally with Hancock and Moore which has some more mid-century modern designs. Certainly worth checking out.
