Where Are All The Leather Tufted Sofas?!

Hey there!  Hope everyone is having a fan-tab-u-lous weekend.  I've been a busy bee myself.  I've been working on a family room redo.  Not for myself, but for someone else, which is always fun!  We've been looking for tufted sofas in an ivory leather that sort of resembles a Chesterfield.  Not an easy find, especially if you're not in the mood to spend.. oh... let's say about $4000 buckeroos on  a sofa.  What the heck is up with that!  This is a picture of the sofa we had in mind.


Isn't she pretty!  But she doesn't come cheap!  It's a Whitaker sofa from Ethan Allen and believe it or not it is the least expensive one we've been able to find, and runs just a smidge under $4000 in leather for 102" length.  Has anyone seen one like this for less, if you have, give me a shout!!  Please, scream it from the mountain tops!
Here are a couple of drool worthy pictures of these pretty little babies!

So what do you think about tufted sofas like these?  Do you have one?  Ever gone looking for one?  Am I alone in my uphill battle of searching for the illusive reasonably priced leather tufted sofa???

  1. I have seen cheaper ones, but they're not in that beautiful white color. I think it's easier to find cheaper in trendier colors like grey (the current one). Like this one--http://www.westelm.com/products/chester-tufted-leather-sofa-g435/?pkey=csectional-sofas But it probably doesn't have the huge armroll you guys are looking for either and I like that you're not getting a sofa in a trendy color anyway :) Also I use to like the tufted sofa and headboard, but then I remembered my mother having that stuff when I was little (via seeing pictures) and all of a sudden I remembered all the stuff that easily collected into the tufts. I tend to want to stay away from things that need extra work to keep clean. Although with leather I guesss it can be easily wiped down.

  2. I saw something like that recently while browing the Macy's website for a leather sofa for my family room. I just checked again and they have something similar in a lot of different fabric choices. They run about $1,000 which is a lot less than $4,000. Good luck.

    1. Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out. Yes $1000 is way better than $4000 lol. Hope they have it in a light leather. Fingers crossed. Going to check now! :)

    2. Just found it... The Martha Stewart Saybridge... Oh so close... only comes in fabric... no leather option. DARN, but what a great price. On sale for $899.
      Ivory leather is not my friend!

  5. Hi Sammy!
    I too have been looking for a Chesterfield, which brought me to your blog. I have been in awe at your creativity. You have inspired me to begin my own rub and buff projects! I'm checking back in because I have just found a white leather chesterfield style sofa and wanted to let you know. Check out Modani.com. On sale and under $1000. Good luck! And PLEASE keep up the good work!!
