At Rawhide we take pride in being a Canadian manufacturer and retailer of the highest quality leather and fabric upholstered furniture. Our production facility and huge showroom is located just north of Toronto with easy access to the 404 and 401 highway systems.
Because all of our pieces are custom made to your exact specifications, starting from the frame sizing through the tailoring, seating comfort preference, and wide choice of leathers and fabrics, we know you'll be delighted with each piece you choose.
Range of Furniture
Because we construct all our frames from start to finish, we can offer a complete range of upholstered furniture pieces including sofas, chairs, love seats, sectionals, ottomans, sofa beds, recliners, theatre seating and anything in between. Sofas, Love Seats, and Chairs are made with hardwood frames constructed in-house to fit any room. Frame and spring construction is of the highest quality available in the industry. And we custom fit each piece so that length and seating depth exactly meets your specifications. We are never satisfied with "standard".
Sofa Beds are available in both leather and fabric using our 6" sofa bed mattress and can be adapted to most Sectionals. We also offer the option of an Air Dream 11" thick mattress which is a top-rated hotel mattress.
Theatre Seating is built on the same hardwood frame and spring system we use in all our custom designed upholstery pieces. This construction is found to outperform standard old style metal frames. We can offer almost unlimited custom designed options such as manual or power seat adjustments, movable headrests, cup holders, decorative nail heads. We will design your theatre seating to fit your "theatre space".
Sectionals are custom designed to fit the space you have, whether that's a family room, great room or basement recreation room. We work with you and even visit on site if necessary to ensure that everything fits including through narrow hallways, stairways and doors. Custom designed leather or fabric pieces can include chaises, recliners, curved corner pieces, ottomans, or armless sofas. Your imagination is the only limit!
At Rawhide we believe in offering our customers the highest quality leathers and fabrics at the most economical and fair prices possible. Unlike many other upholstery manufacturers we use only top grain and full grain leathers sourced from premium tanneries around the globe. We do not use "Bonded", "Bi-cast", or "Split" leathers, which are often used to make less expensive furniture. These so called leathers are man-made substitutes which may look and feel like the real thing, but are actually vinyl based products which do not have the durability or feel of the real thing. As with any product, real leathers come in various grades. They are a natural product and often the beauty of the leather is found in the slight imperfections in the hides. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to explain the various colours and quality options available.
Fabric Grades and Qualities
Upholstery fabrics come in an amazing array of colours, patterns, textures and qualities. The durability of fabric is measured in "rubs" and depending on where and how the piece is to be used, this may be an important factor in choosing a fabric. Choosing a piece of upholstered furniture is usually a long term investment, and we'll do our best to assist you in finding just the right fabric to fit your décor and life style. We deal with the most trusted fabric mills in North America.
All of our upholstery pieces are constructed of durable hardwood frames. We measure and cut the frame to fit exactly to your specifications, including length (arm to arm), height, and seat depth. Our expert craftsmen will make each piece meticulously for the most sturdy and long lasting frame possible. The seat bed is built for long lasting support with drop-in coil construction. Seat and back cushions are made of 2.0 lb. density foam which is available in your preference of soft, medium or firm support. All cushions are then wrapped in 2.0 lb. Dacron fibre. Seat and back cushions are removable and easy to rotate for long lasting use.
