American Leather Co.: Manufacturers of Customizable Furniture

American Leather Co.: Manufacturers of Customizable Furniture

Engineers with a truly unique vision founded the American Leather Company in the year 1990 in Dallas. It was founded when three months was considered the standard delivery time for customized furniture. However, the founders of the company were convinced that 12 weeks was too long for any order to reach fruition.

So, with this vision in mind, company founder Bob Duncan and his management team started setting new standards in the custom-made furniture industry. The goal was to deliver customized furniture within 30 days, three times faster than the average standard during that time. The company achieved this while also providing high quality and variety. They did this by applying innovative techniques and using modern technology and manufacturing methods.

During its inception, American Leather started with just nine employees in a borrowed facility measuring 5,000 square feet. The small team of engineers designed the factory using the latest technology and systems to enable mass customization, establishing itself as North America’s most automated furniture manufacturer.

Presently, the company has over 600 employees working in a state-of-the-art factory in South Dallas, measuring a whopping 350,000 square feet. American Leather offers over 800,000 furniture combinations, which is exclusive to your fabric or leather choice. It is available in all colors, further adding to their impressive services.
