Buying a Leather Settee – Prices and Options

by Concierge Matcher on February 2, 2011

Leather setteesBuying a leather settee can be challenging as there are a number of different brand names, styles and models to choose from.  Which one is right for your living room will likely depend on a number of factors, such as the style and color of your existing living room furniture, how much space your living room has and your budget.

Leather settees, sofas and chairs are, generally speaking, a bit pricier than regular living room furniture.  However, you do not have to buy a settee that costs thousands of dollars to get something that is good quality and will compliment your living room decor.

Mayline is one brand name that makes affordable leather settees.  You can get one of theirs for a bit under $1,000.  Another fairly affordable brand name is Arlington. You can buy a leather corner sofa set of this brand name for around $1,300 irregardless of what color you choose.

If you are looking for a higher end brand name, such as a Tommy Bahama or Knoll leather settee, then you should be prepared to pay at least $3,000 – $4,000 for one.  Even a smaller Knoll leather settee for a children’s room costs almost $3,000.

If you find that the prices are a bit steep, then you could consider looking for used leather settees.  There are a number of discount furniture shops in any city or town that sell second hand furniture, or you could check out a site such as craigslist and see if there is an individual who is selling something in good condition for a good price.  However, when it comes to buying used items in general, you should always check the item carefully, in person, to make sure it is still in good condition.  Also talk with the individual seller regarding lowering the price for the leather settee; many sellers do not mind negotiating a bit on the price if you are a serious buyer.
