Launched in 2009, American Classics Leather grew from a passion for quality craftsmanship and leather from the finest tanneries around the world. From our headquarters in Hickory, NC we bring more than 35 years of combined leather furniture experience to bear on creating high quality leather furniture in a variety of timeless and yet affordable designs.
How We Started
Prior to the launch of American Classics Leather, the typical piece of leather furniture was overpriced and poorly constructed. In addition, other manufacturers would sacrifice the quality of the leather materials for the sake of increased production and maximized profits. After spending decades in the leather furniture business, our founders knew there was a way to create leather furniture that was both high quality and affordable, and they set out to do exactly that.
What Our Name Means
So, why American Classics Leather? Our name is a natural extension of our motivation for launching the company. Here's what the name on our label stands for:
- American: We are committed to crafting quality leather furniture that is made and sourced from the finest materials right here at home in America.
- Classics: Our styles are created to be timeless statements that complement a variety of themes and decor.
- Leather: The words "vinyl" and "bonded" are not in our vocabulary. All of our covers are made from 100% top-grain, aniline-dyed leather.
Our Leather Furniture: The ACL Difference
Now that you know a little more about us, let's get to the good stuff - our products. Our leather furniture stands out from the crowd due to our attention to detail and uncompromising commitment to quality. We invite you to learn about our process and the work that goes into creating each piece.
American Classics Leather Furniture Craftsmanship
Because our reputation is built on quality, American Classics Leather hand-selects skilled craftspeople and the finest leather materials to create each piece. Our furniture is:
- Crafted by hand - All our sofas, sectionals, loveseats, chairs and ottomans are eight-way hand-tied for maximum support and comfort you can depend on.
- Made to last - All our frames are built-to-order according to our exacting standards from solid, kiln-dried wood, each piece corner-blocked, screwed, glued, and doweled for maximum durability and guaranteed sturdiness.
- Supple to the touch - All our furniture is covered in 100% top-grain leather.
Designed for Use
Just because our furniture is often purchased as an investment doesn’t mean you have to keep the kids away or can’t use it in your frequently visited entertainment room. Fear not, American Classics Leather furniture is designed for daily use. As proof, our product designers include the following details for enhanced comfort, improved function, and protection from normal wear and tear:
- Arm caps - The first areas that typically show normal wear and tear when using leather furniture are the armrests. For that reason, our sofas, loveseats, and chairs are equipped with arm caps to keep this from happening.
- Spring down cushions - For us, it's never enough for our furniture to look nice; it has to feel nice, too. For maximum comfort, we use the spring down cushion, one of the plushest, softest seat cushions on the market. We use these cushions, made of high-quality blown fiber foam, coil springs, and a blend down topper, for their longevity, stability, and comfort.
- Zipper access - Eventually you may find it necessary to replace your leather furniture’s cushions. By adding a zipper to each of our seats and back cushions, you can now conveniently replace the cushion without having to pay an upholsterer.
