Leather Collection

Here at Parker Knoll, our leather range offers a super soft feel with sumptuous colours – a stylish option for your new furniture. Parker Knoll leathers are selected from premium tanneries worldwide, they are natural products and every hide has a unique life story.

Leather will stretch and move and may display traces of the past, such as healed scars, insect bites, growth marks, veins, sometimes even brand marks. These are all hallmarks of hide and in no way detract from wearing qualities of leather.
No two hides are alike, grain structure will always vary. The dyes and finishes penetrate to varying degrees in different areas of the hide to give an attractive finish. Whilst every attempt is made to achieve uniformity, this is not always possible as a suite requires at least eight hides, each with various textures therefore, perfect colour matching between individual pieces cannot be guaranteed. Swatch books and samples should be regarded as a colour guide only.

Pull-up hides have an aged appearance, with a considerable degree of variation in colour texture and natural features. Modern tanning processes mean that our leather has a soft glove-like feel and will remain supple throughout its life. These factors mean that after a few weeks of use, wrinkles and creases will form naturally in the leather giving a ‘puddling’ effect. These are quite normal and should cause no concern, in fact, they give a soft inviting look.
