Picket&Rail’s original KUKA luxury leather Grandiose 1772 sofa is a vision to behold with its contours that evoke comfort and the distinctive, ever-so-perfect, foldover design of its arm with just the right amount of volume. The fold is vaguely reminiscent of an envelope flap, which is very fashionable. The pronounced stitching, in a contrasting color and a unique V-pattern, accentuates the KUKA 1772 sofa design. The beauty of the softly sculptural KUKA 1772 sofa, especially in soft colors, makes it the perfect focal point in any interior. The looks of the sofa are only comparable to its incredible lush leather and comfort.
The base of the KUKA 1772 sofa flares out gracefully to a side console rendered in dark wooden veneer just under the arm flap. This small console is great for the remote controls and phones that have a habit of disappearing down the back of your sofa. And if you’re too lazy to reach out to your coffee table, you can simply just set your glass down on the handy built-in drink holder in the other arm of the sofa. The adjustable headrests of the KUKA 1772 sofa maximise your comfort and can be pushed down to make for a more streamlined and refined silhouette in your living room. The unobtrusive stainless steel base also lends the sofa an immaculate lightness, almost as if it were floating.

A leather sofa is not just a sofa. It is a decision. And buying a sofa is rather like buying a car- except one probably knows less about buying the former than the latter. That makes the great hunt (and it should be!) even more daunting. Quality comes from the choice of materials, skills, craftsmanship and technology.

Whenever you’re shopping for leather goods, the term “genuine leather” will draw you in because there's nothing worse than a fake. However, the term is misleading innocent buyers to purchase low quality split leather, more commonly known as suede. It is harder, cheaper, weaker, and damages easily if not handled properly. Read on more to know why you experience "sweating" on your leather sofa!

Leather is the strongest natural material. In fact, leather is so strong it is virtually impossible to puncture or tear without a great amount of force. A seam in leather is 50% stronger than a seam in fabric.
