The fast and the fabulous
With a factory just outside of Dallas, Texas, American Leather has made itself an industry leader, selling their beautiful upholstered goods (now both leather and fabric) in over 650 stores, including Room and Board, Crate and Barrel, Macy’s, and Design Within Reach. It was founded in 1990 with a focus on fast turnaround; like three weeks or less. Manufacturing in the states helps with that, eliminating time consuming shipping across oceans, not to mention giving it a greener carbon footprint. All the pieces shown here are available through American-made furniture supporter, Room & Board.
