Fresh from attending the HD Expo+ Conference, American Leather noted three top design trends in upholstery emerging at the show. A three-day gathering of top designers, operators, architects, purchasers and developers in the hospitality industry, HD Expo features more than 600 product suppliers in more than 25 product categories.
Mixed materials that celebrate a customer’s need to creatively combine various materials for one-of-a-kind upholstered looks.
In this trend category, American Leather offers 100% customizable upholstered products where customers can select from the company’s more than 350 fabrics and 100 top grain leathers as well as mixing the two within the same piece of furniture.
Form and function matter more than ever before. Customers are prioritizing products with multi-use capabilities without losing design aesthetic.
American Leather’s Today Sleeper sofa is one of the company’s fastest-growing sleeper sofas.
- Sustainability is a priority. American Leather finds that more and more customers are looking at both their bottom line along with their commitment to sustainability in choosing products. As a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, American Leather imbues sustainability into its manufacturing processes.
The company’s furniture frames are made from wood sourced from sustainable forests, and any leather or fabric scrap that remains is either recycled or sold for the production of small leather goods. In addition, all American Leather furniture is made at the company’s factory in Dallas, further reducing the carbon footprint of the brand when transporting within the U.S.
