When you buy furniture from a retailer, you never really know what kind of deal you're getting. The retailer buys the furniture from the manufacturer and then marks up the price to recoup the initial investment. If you buy leather furniture directly from the manufacturer, you cut out that middle man. You can buy leather furniture from the manufacturer using a few different techniques.
Go to a store owned and operated by a leather-furniture manufacturer. Manufacturers such as American Leather operate physical retail locations, allowing you to purchase products in-store, direct from the manufacturer. You can use the American Leather website to locate the store nearest to your location by typing your ZIP code or city name into the form at the top of the website.
Use a service like DirectBuy, which allows you to purchase leather furniture directly from more than 500 different manufacturers. A service such as DirectBuy is different from a furniture retailer because instead of buying the leather furniture from the manufacturer and selling it to you, the service simply facilitates your ability to purchase directly from the manufacturer yourself. DirectBuy also has physical locations in addition to its online presence.
Find a local "furniture direct" service in your area. This type of service operates similarly to that of DirectBuy, in that it simply enables you to communicate with and purchase directly from a leather-furniture manufacturer. You can find "furniture direct" stores and clubs in your area using your local phone book.
