    Default BY # 644-95 Tappan Sofa in leather 9085-85 GR 5

    Just arrived as stock this morning and as I often do I am bucking the trend of buying floor stock in the cheapest Chinese leather offered. This one is top-of-the-line, a European pure aniline, and I think its smashing. This is Bradington Youngs version of H&M's Capri leather. Super soft, elegant and with a wonderful hand. I have always like this frame since I think its one of the best sitting 'compact' sofas and it has a clean, crisp look to it. Top of the line leather and under $ 3K for a price point. What's not to like?

    I am confused. On the B&Y website leather 9085-85 is Grade 4. You said it is Grade 5. Who is right?

    9085 leather is currently a GR 4, it was a GR at the time of this post. Remember that grades are PRICING GRADES and allow a maker to class a leather based on what they pay for the hides.

    In July of this year, Bradington Young re-aligned all the grades and it has caused a lot of confusion. 9085 is part of the "Grafton Place" grouping which prior to July was their top price grade, a 5. Since the re-alignment, they made Grafton Place GR 4 and now the Julian Harbor leathers are the top price grade.

    The 644-95 sofa has been retired from the model lineup.

    Items come and go every 6 months with the Fall and Spring Markets at High Point. One item never specifically replaces another per se.

    I compared 2 sofas :713 and 568. Both of them has the same measurement, but different weigh : 235 and 275 pounds accordingly. What cause these differences and which one is better: lighter or heavier?

    HA! You expect those shipping weights to be accurate? I can pretty much guarantee you the one sofa does not weight 275 lb in the box.
