Where do your leathers come from?
ACL refuses to compromise on the quality of leathers we offer, and we source our leather from the best tanneries. The majority of leathers are sourced from tanneries in Italy. We also source from tanneries in South America.
Is your furniture leather all over?
Yes. Each piece is covered in top-grain or full-grain, analine-dyed leather, depending on your preference.

How do I check status of my order?

How do I select a leather grade?
Grade A leathers are top grain semi aniline dyed leathers. Top grain is the best cut of leather. The leather tannery then removes most of the imperfections in the leather, dyes the leather and then seals it with a topcoat finish. This finish is what protects the leather from spills, makes them scratch resistant, gives them grain and color consistency for the life of your furniture. For example, look at the 289- Lenoir Sofa, it's photographed in Revelations Cocoa.
Grade B leathers are also top grain semi aniline dyed leathers. The big difference is the grain and color variations that will be more visible. These leathers still have a topcoat finish, but you'll see more natural grain and color variations. For example, look at the 558- Westwood sofa, it's photographed in Dante Espresso. (less the hair on hide on the sides & back)
Grade C & D leathers are full grain & full aniline dyed. These leathers are left at the most natural state from the tannery. With these leathers healed scars, brand marks & shade variations are prevalent and to be expected. These leathers will patina and distress. They are expected to. They break in to give an OLD-WORLD LOOK & FEEL. For example, look at the 959-Hampton sofa, it's photographed in Berkshire Bourbon. (disclaimer this sofa was photographed after a few years of use. When your furniture shows up you will need to use it to get this look, other words you must break it in).
Are the seat and back cushions sewn in or removable?
All of the collections have removable seat and back cushions. Except for recliners. The recliners have a removable seat cushion.
