The Best Leather Sofas in 2019 – Buyers Guide

A top quality leather sofa can set the tone for your man cave and become the centre-piece of the entire room if that is your wish.

Leather sofas have been in vogue since they were first invented. And that trend is not going to stop anytime soon.

Buying one of these timeless items of furniture is a great way to deck out your man cave and provide a great way for you and your buddies to chill out with a beer and watch the game, play games or catch a film.

I always make it clear that having the coolest looking man cave shouldn’t be your first priority.

What good is having a cool space if you can’t get comfortable in it?

Sure you can come in and look at the pool table, hockey table, home bar, neon lights, posters and memorabilia and other cool decor but if you can’t make it your own comfy space at the same time then what good is it really?

If you are looking to build your own home theater as opposed to your more traditional man cave then you will be better off getting dedicated home theatre seating, but if you just want to chill and have a place to relax at the end of a tough day with your buddies then a quality leather sofa is a fantastic way to go.

In this buyers guide, we will take a look at a selection of top quality leather sofas for your purchasing needs, that you can be sure will make a positive impact on your man cave or other chosen personal space.

No flimsy frame, cheap materials or corner-cutting on quality here. This manufacturer is old-school!

Flash Furniture HERCULES Majesty Series Cognac Leather Sofa

Flash Furniture HERCULES Majesty Series Cognac Leather Sofa

If you are looking at something on the more modest end of the price spectrum then this Cognac Leather Soft sofa in the Majesty series is a great consideration.

The Hercules is decent quality and with a sturdy hardwood frame, 1.8 high-density foam and that little bit of extra character and comfort provided by the cool flared armrests, its good looks are borne out by excellent craftsmanship and solid construction.

The brushed aluminium feet are a nice style statement too.

The upholstery is very durable – not 100% leather it should be noted. The textile is called LeatherSoft and is made from a mix of leather and polyurethane. Very practical, with a lovely soft feel and easy to keep clean.

Simple but elegant, the lightweight Hercules is maybe not the choice if you are looking for your ultimate “reclining in the palm of your [chosen deity’s] hand” experience but it’s hard to beat if what you need is a stylish but comfortable extra seating solution (it will seat 3 comfortably) or have limited space to accommodate something plusher.

The neat and unfussy style and supportive backrest is just the thing if you want a sofa for those times when you are only partially vegging out and want to remain a little more upright whilst you work on your laptop or a hobby.

A nice choice for an office sofa or geek-oriented mancave in fact.

A worthy addition to a sociable mancave or for those whose den is somewhere to retreat to when you need to get on with stuff. The Hercules is a stylish bargain.

The Hercules assembled dimensions are 30 x 68.5 x 31.2 inches and it weighs 99lb.


Stone & Beam Bradbury Chesterfield Modern Sofa

Stone & Beam Bradbury Chesterfield Modern Sofa

If you’re bored of the classic-looking sofas that all look similar and are instead looking for something slightly more unique and off the wall whilst still retaining that old-world elegance and regality then the Stone & Beam Bradbury Chesterfield sofa might be just what you’re looking for.

And it comes with quite the story.

The name “Chesterfield” for a couch or settee has a rather grand history.

The first deep buttoned leather sofa in this distinctive quilted style was actually commissioned by the English Lord, Phillip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield (1694-1773).

The Earl was quite a trendsetter in his day. He had the first Chesterfield couch, with its characteristic deep buttoned upholstery, rolled arms, equal back and arm height and nailhead trim, made by a local craftsman.

His aim was to provide his fashionable gentlemen friends with comfortable and luxurious seating in which they could sit without wrinkling their elegant and elaborate outfits of the time.

The style might never have caught on beyond his grand stately home however if not for (and I kid you not) his dying words! Legend has it that as he lay on his deathbed he was visited by his godson, a Mr Dayrolles.

The genteel lord did not forget his manners even in his last moments.

He asked his butler to “Give Mr Dayrolles a chair” – and promptly expired (RIP).

The chair in question, in the Chesterfield style, was duly fetched and Mr Dayrolles, a young man of means who moved in society, took it away with him as his godfather’s parting gift.

Luxury,  class and quality. 

He and his friends were highly enamoured by the distinguished-looking sofa, and soon everyone wanted one and they were being commissioned for all the great homes of British high society.

The Chesterfield has remained almost emblematic of British aristocratic style for over two centuries since, and this excellent modern rendition in the Stone & Beam Bradbury range is a true successor of its antique original ancestor.

With its low profile backrest and unique texture and classic scroll designed armrests, this is a striking and elegant leather loveseat which will be a sure-fire hit with your guests and an excellent centrepiece for the more upmarket of man caves out there.

With its soft brown leather tones and overstuffed leather pillows, this is a deceptively comfortable loveseat with a rock-solid design and beautiful aesthetic.

And now you know its illustrious backstory, it’s quite a conversation piece as well!

Available in 3 colours, Black, Brown and Cognac (shown here) the two-seater sofa measures 78.7” W x 39” D x 30.3” H. A 93-inch model is also offered and there are a matching living room chair and a plush and sturdy ottoman footstool in the range as well.


Global Furniture Wyatt Collection Leather Matching Sofa

Global Furniture Wyatt Collection Leather Matching Sofa

Another unique and modern design leather sofa for those of you that want to take a step away from the traditional, this stunning leather 3-seater sofa from the Wyatt Collection is a real head turner with it’s highly unorthodox and modern aesthetic.

Constructed from only the best materials, including the frame which is crafted from kiln-dried hardwood. This is a top-quality seat at a very good price. The sofa, loveseat and matching chairs are all available.

All offer a fine degree of lumbar support and comfort – Global Furniture has really hit the sweet spot between style, fantastic lumbar support and laid back comfort with the Wyatt collection.

New Age class with only the best in leather sofa luxury

Whether buying as a bold stand-alone centrepiece for your man cave or living room or matching it with other seating or more single leather seat options from the same collection this is a contemporary leather sofa that will stand out in any room.

Despite the modern design comfort is, as always, at the top of the list. Featuring only the highest premium quality leather upholstery with a beautiful two-tone tan and chocolate colour scheme completed with luxury chrome legs which add to the elegance and beauty of this fantastic leather seat collection.

It’s a great choice for those in warmer climates as the open sidearm design, roominess and cool leather upholstery will allow air to circulate around you but it’s deep enough to really relax into.

Things to consider when purchasing a sofa for your man cave

Construction Quality:

It goes without saying that construction quality as much as comfort should be a priority. It’s what we always look for when suggesting a leather sofa or loveseat or for that matter, any product reviewed and suggested on this site.

A leather sofa is an investment. You want to make extra sure that you are getting something that will not only looks awesome and feel awesome but will also last the test of time.

With bums in and out of seats, spilt drinks, and other potential mishaps not ruining your expensive sofa at the first sign of trouble or general wear and tear.

Delivery and Assembly:

These sofas are obviously on the larger side when it comes to delivery so it’s always pertinent to measure out the space it’s going to be inhabiting. It’s also important to make sure that there is a clear path from your delivery area to the spot you want it to go in.

Many of these items come requiring some assembly and usually takes care of access.

But if you have awkward corners to negotiate, staircases or small doorways you might want to get the measuring tape out or maybe contact the seller or manufacturer to make sure you’ll be able to get it in.

Quality of Upholstery

All the sofas here feature only the best in premium real leather. If not taking our buying suggestion and going with something else make sure that you are not getting a cheap knock-off upholstery that will not serve you well in the long run.
