What we do

Leather Sofas Handcrafted Since 1997

Here at Distinctive, we can proudly say that all our leather sofas are handmade in Britain. Every leather sofa that leaves our showroom has been made to order to the customer’s specific needs and requirements, so a question we are frequently asked is “How long does the process take?”

Usually the time taken from the date of ordering to your very own made to order leather sofa arriving at your door is around 6 weeks.

During this time, you can expect your sofa to go through a rigorous process by our highly skilled and trained craftsmen in our Yorkshire based workshop. The hardwood frame is handmade and fastened together with sturdy dowels and screws. The arms and back are then webbed for support using Pirelli webbing and fire retardant multigrade foam, and the sofa is upholstered with full hides of soft leather in your choice of colour. The final finishing touches are then put in place as they are individually hand studded and buttoned at the borders. Every Distinctive sofa holds true to its name with a unique and distinctive finish, from your choice of leather finish to the solid mahogany feet or brass castor.

A Distinctive leather sofa is not just another piece of throwaway furniture in your home, it’s so much more. We expect our customers to be able to use their sofas comfortably for at least the next 20 years, so we design, manufacture and finish with the highest quality in mind. Buying your leather sofa from Distinctive doesn’t only give you a luxury piece of furniture, but a luxury experience and investment piece for years to come.

What We Offer

When Buying a Leather Sofa, the difference in between leathers explained

We can offer various different styles and grades of Leathers including our ever popular Premium range.

Antique Leather

More commonly known as rub off leathers, these are buffed and corrected to remove any imperfections that can distract from the overall aesthetics of the piece. Once imperfections have vanished, the leather can be embossed with a traditional print and the top coat can be removed to reveal the base coat, giving a two tone effect. This is most often applied to the high points of a leather sofa in order to give it an effective and realistic antiqued look to add character and charm to your home.

Premium Leather

With 38 Colours to choose from within our Premium leather range. We have a few leathers in the premium range which are lightly treated with beeswax to give a more matte look over some of the other colours in the premium range. Other premium leathers are massaged with oils and waxes to give a more of a shine to them.

Hand dyed Leather

This is the most prestigious range we offer at Distinctive – the epitome of luxury and traditional styled British furniture. The colours are smooth and the full grain leathers are finished with a blend of oils to achieve a pull up effect along with a glossy finish. The effect created by these gives an appearance known as the classic “Old Saddle” that is both comfortable and stylish. Every piece of furniture will therefore be unique with everything from healed scars and scratches to neck and belly wrinkles apparent on the surface of these hides.

Leather Choice

We have 3 different quality of Leather. Standard, Premium & Luxury. Each of which will affect the end price of your leather sofa but will make it look like a timeless classic

You need a sofa that fits both your style and your requirements. On the high street, it can be almost impossible to find one that’s the right size for your home.

Beautiful Sofa

We had visited a number of highstreet stores but were unable to find a leather sofa we liked in the right size. After speaking to Distinctive we have been able to get the exact size we needed and in a better quality leather.

Getting The Right Leather

We didn’t know that leather came in different grades. Distinctive Leather Sofas took the time to explain everything to us, from the ground up.

I picked to shop with Distinctive, as they offer a lifetime warranty with all of their sofas. I doubt I’ll need it though as the build quality is excellent.
