Finding the Right seating for You

With entire areas of our homes reserved for “sitting rooms,” the value of quality antique and vintage seating cannot be overstated.

Fortunately, the design of side chairs, armchairs and other lounge furniture — since what were, quite literally, the early perches of our ancestors — has evolved considerably.

Among the earliest standard seating furniture were stools. Egyptian stools, for example, designed for one person with no seat back, were x-shaped and typically folded to be tucked away. These rudimentary chairs informed the design of Greek and Roman stools, all of which were a long way from Sori Yanagi's Butterfly stool or Alvar Aalto's Stool 60. In the 18th century and earlier, seats with backs and armrests were largely reserved for high nobility.

The seating of today is more inclusive but the style and placement of chairs can still make a statement. Antique desk chairs and armchairs designed in the style of Louis XV, which eventually included painted furniture and were often made of rare woods, feature prominently curved legs as well as Chinese themes and varied ornaments. Much like the thrones of fairy tales and the regency, elegant lounges crafted in the Louis XV style convey wealth and prestige. In the kitchen, the dining chair placed at the head of the table is typically reserved for the head of the household or a revered guest.

Of course, with luxurious vintage or antique furnishings, every chair can seem like the best seat in the house. Whether your preference is stretching out on a plush sofa, such as the Serpentine, designed by Vladimir Kagan, or cozying up in a vintage wingback chair, there is likely to be a comfy classic or contemporary gem for you on 1stDibs.

With respect to the latest obsessions in design, cane seating has been cropping up everywhere, from sleek armchairs to lounge chairs, while bouclé fabric, a staple of modern furniture design, can be seen in mid-century modern, Scandinavian modern and Hollywood Regency furniture styles.

Admirers of the sophisticated craftsmanship and dark woods frequently associated with mid-century modern seating can find timeless furnishings in our expansive collection of lounge chairs, dining chairs and other items — whether they’re vintage editions or alluring official reproductions of iconic designs from the likes of Hans Wegner or from Charles and Ray Eames. Shop our inventory of Egg chairs, designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Florence Knoll lounge chair and more.

No matter your style, the collection of unique chairs, sofas and other seating on 1stDibs is surely worthy of a standing ovation.

Questions About Leather Double Sofa
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are a few different types of leather that are great for sofas - royalin, full grain and top grain leather. In terms of style and comfort, it really comes down to a matter of preference. You’ll find a variety of leather sofa options from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 27, 2024
    Yes, you can dye a leather sofa. To do so, you must typically begin by sanding down the upholstery, oiling it and then applying dye. Because there is a risk that you could damage your sofa, you may wish to enlist the help of a professional upholsterer or furniture repair expert. Find a variety of leather sofas on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 21, 2024
    Full-grain and top-grain leather are both good quality-leathers for sofas. Full-grain leather consists of the full hide, making it durable yet supple and visually appealing. Top-grain leather is more economically priced and has the outermost layer of the hide sanded and buffed away, giving it a smoother texture and less of a visible grain. On 1stDibs, explore a wide range of leather sofas.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    With Italian leather, you want to avoid getting the material wet. If you can, use a dry cloth or vacuum to remove dirt. For stains, use a damp cloth, but avoid chemical cleaners. Save the hassle and shop a collection of Italian leather furniture from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    When choosing a leather sofa, it's important to consider the material's quality, especially if you're looking for an enduring item. Top-grain calfskin leather, for instance, is more durable and simpler to maintain than corrected-grain leather. Top-grain leather also softens with age and develops a unique sheen. On 1stDibs, find a variety of antique and vintage leather sofas.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    Whether a leather sofa is a good investment depends on a variety of factors. The materials and quality of craftsmanship will affect how long a piece lasts, but how you care for and use it will also impact longevity. Forward-thinking design and sensuous materials are the hallmarks of 1970s-era leather seating, which feels as sexy, comfortable and radical today as it did in its heyday. Through joint research with several forward-looking furniture manufacturers into state-of-the-art industrial processes, designers of the original leather-clad beanbag chair Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini and Franco Teodoro explored ways of employing polyurethane foam to serve as both cushion and structure, offering a whole new range of seating concepts. There is likely a leather sofa in everyone’s budget, but taking care of your investment is important. Unlike upholstery, the color of the leather sofa you choose won’t make a difference when it comes to regular maintenance. A damp cloth can be used to remove dust, for example. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of leather sofas from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 6, 2024
    The highest-grade leather for a sofa is full-grain leather. It comes from the topmost layer of the animal hide and does not undergo any buffing or sanding. As a result, it is highly durable, has a luxurious, supple feel and shows off the beautiful natural grain pattern of genuine leather. Explore a variety of leather sofas on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 16, 2024
    Yes, an Italian leather sofa is typically good. Italian leather is known for being a high-quality material that is pleasing to the eye and has a luxurious, supple feel. As a result, it can be a fine option for sofas. Keep in mind that the sturdiness and strength of the frame and the resilience of the padding and suspension systems inside of sofas also impact their quality and durability. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of leather sofas.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 5, 2021
    The best type of leather for a sofa is top grain leather, which is smooth, supple and the most expensive. Top grain has two grades — aniline, which is most natural and semi-aniline, which may be coated with a protective top coat. You can also have top grain leather that is pigmented. If you are looking for some contemporary, vintage and antique leather sofas, you can visit 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2024
    To tell if a sofa is real leather, run your hand along the upholstery. With real leather, you're likely to feel an uneven or bumpy underlayer due to the natural characteristics of the material. By comparison, man-made leather will usually feel perfectly smooth. The appearance of the leather can also be a giveaway. Natural leather will usually show off variations in its grain, while faux leather will typically have a regular repeated pattern. If you're still uncertain after completing an inspection yourself, consult a certified appraiser or experienced furniture dealer for assistance. Explore a large selection of leather sofas on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    How long a leather sofa should last depends on its construction and materials. You can get a good idea of how long a particular sofa will last by looking at its warranty. Often, the leather upholstery wears out on a sofa before the frame. Find a range of leather sofas on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    Burgundy pairs well with grey, turquoise, golden yellow, and umber. In addition, the warm-green tone contrasts beautifully with the burgundy leather furnishings. On 1stDibs, shop a range of vintage and antique leather sofas.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 7, 2024
    To tell a good-quality leather sofa, examine its details closely. The highest-end pieces will usually feature full-grain leather, which refers to a strong and durable grade of leather that retains its original grain surface (hair and imperfections are removed). What type of fill is present inside the cushions also impacts the quality, with spring seats with felt and wool and high-grade foam being featured in the best sofas. Finally, frames will typically be produced out of sturdy materials like wood and feature strong joints. Explore a large collection of sofas on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    The best choice for a wall color that goes with a caramel sofa depends on your preferences. Caramel is a mellow hue that embraces a diverse variety of color combinations.

Shop a collection of antique, vintage, and contemporary leather sofas from some of the world’s top dealers on 1stDibs.
