Leather is the fastest growing upholstery material used in the United States today. Its strength, supple feel and wearability set it apart from ordinary fabric coverings. And because its' average lifespan is four times longer than a fabric covering's, no wonder consumers are discovering the tremendous value it represents.
Here at Design NS, we use only the best genuine leather. We carefully inspect each delivery of leather ourselves before acceptance. We offer exclusively Top Grain and Full Grain leather. "Top grain" leather is the top 3/64" of a hide. Because of its strength and beauty, this supple layer is the standard of upholstery leather. Occasionally, top grain leathers are buffed or sanded to remove excess markings, such as scars. This process also removes the beautiful natural grain found in leather. On the other hand, "full grain" leather is a top grain hide which has not been buffed or sanded. The grain and natural markings, which many consider the hallmarks of fine leather, remain. Because it is the most beautiful and sensuous of all top grain leathers, "full grain" leather is the premier leather grade. Full grain hides are more expensive, due to their supple feel, tremendous strength, and superior durability.
We also offer Sensuede and Ultrasuede, a synthetic material, as an alternative to the leather. It's perfect for applications ranging from high-end contract installations to exclusive residential furnishings. Sensuede is inherently resistant to spills and stains. Most spills "bead up" on the fabric surface and do not soak in. If stains do occur, they can be easily removed.
