Edelman Leather: THE brand of luxury leathers for interiors,
serving the high-end residential, contract, hospitality,
aviation and marine markets.
We are leather, leather is in our DNA. Beginning in the 1950s, Teddy and Arthur Edelman
created works of art from exotic skins, taking over and building the family business.
In 1964,with their friend Andy Warhol doing graphic design, the Edelman’s became the award-winning,
leading leather source for the fashion industry. In 1981, they launched Edelman Leather, focused
on high-end upholstery. Teddy & Arthur unlocked leather’s possibilities by blending time-honored
craft tradition with a bold artistic vision.
With Knoll purchasing the company in 2008, that vision drives us still. Woven within our
brand are 3rd and 4th generation tanneries, top-tier artisans, deeply skilled technicians
and leather professionals, whose collective knowledge ensures the highest caliber leather
for each application.
Their shared narrative runs throughout Edelman’s work, focusing
all energy on bringing out leather’s essential quality and beauty, treasuring the
imperfections of a natural product.
The spirit of Edelman is one of devotion, craftsmanship, and service: Devotion to quality,
artisanal craftsmanship preserved and handed down for generations, and conscientious
service to meet the needs and inspirations of the global design community.
More than a business, Edelman is a lifestyle company. Our products touch every aspect
of our clients’ lives. From their homes and offices to the restaurants they eat in, the
hotels they stay in, their private planes and yachts. We understand quality, luxury,
choice, service. At Edelman, we never settle.
We are in the business of art. Our art is leather. Crafting pure luxury.
