If you’re looking to update your home here’s why you should always buy Italian leather furniture

Design, quality, versatility - good Italian leather furniture has all these attributes and industry-leading producers know to use it but what makes Italian leather a cut above the rest?

It’s natural

Vegetable tanned leather takes longer to make than cheaper leathers but it is always worth it for its five star qualities. The best hides from well-kept cattle are sourced and then processed meticulously to produce a finish worthy of the finest furniture.


Whether opting for a discreet recliner or a stylish armchair, every piece is made with care at Natuzzi. The distinctive natural markings of the Italian leather complement the timeless, modern furniture which brings design, comfort and panache together.

It lasts

When cared for using a specialist cleaner and protector, good quality Italian leather provides a highly durable material for your furniture that will last a long time.

Natuzzi uses the highest grade leather and offers a two year warranty for its leather upholstery, mechanical parts and coverings plus a lifetime warranty for frames. Natuzzi’s industry-leading Protecta Leathers are waterproof and hardy, designed for families with children and pets.


It’s chic and stylish

Using unique processes and natural tanning, Italian leather comes in an array of muted, earthy tones. When used for covering furniture, this produces stylish, understated pieces that will give any room in your house a cool, sophisticated look.

Design options are abundant at Natuzzi, with customisable components and many choices of high quality coverings. Adorned with modern fixtures and clever design details, you can find the right pieces with natural colours that will integrate into your home.




With 60 years of experience, Natuzzi Italia makes stylish, comfortable and sophisticated designer furniture that fits into your life.

The highest quality materials are sourced ethically, from the naturally dyed Italian leather used in its sofas to the linens, cottons and wool used for the fabric chair covers.

Natuzzi furniture is handcrafted in Italy and based on components which can be personally customised with your choice of materials. Each sofa and armchair has a lifetime limited warranty on frames, and two years on upholstery, mechanical parts and coverings.


Visit the South Aylesford Retail Park branch outside Maidstone to see some of the stunning designs. Here you’ll be able to discuss your furnishing requirements with the friendly team who will be happy to share their extensive product knowledge and help you choose a piece of furniture that will transform your home and reflect your style and sophisticated taste in interiors.
