There’s an obvious reason why tradition never goes out of fashion – it stands the test of time. Unlike modern, mass-produced items, tradition isn’t, and never will be about fads – it’s about quality, craftsmanship, hardiness and history – something to keep and hand down, not something to get bored of or break and replace. Real style has always meant quality above all else – designs that make sense and fit in with how you live your life. Materials that you can enjoy and workmanship you can admire.
That’s why at Old Boot, we create sofas that follow traditional principles of design, we create classic looks that are equally at home in a modern city apartment or a cosy country home – because quality goes beyond class. Our sofas are more than just part of the furniture – they’re part of your life, your home and the memories you make. Each Old Boot personifies great design and we’re proud to carry that on.
Our leathers are hand-finished and our sofas are handmade so that each piece is completely unique and packed with character. Each natural mark or scar in the leather tells a story with the earthy, natural colour variations offering subtly and warmth. This combination ensures that an Old Boot is always bang-on-trend. So why settle for fashionable when you can have iconic?
Our brand new, unique Hobnail Leather has been exclusively developed for Old Boot to offer the best of both worlds; a family & pet friendly leather that gives a wonderful patina packed with authentic character as well as a scratch and stain resistant finish*. It has a soft, warm, buttery feel to cuddle up on in winter and being a 100% natural hide it breaths meaning it's perfect to chill out on in the summer. Each hide is hand-picked from the finest Buffalo raw hides and then tanned in Italy. We offer a range of 6 natural tones each offering a timeless choice.
*Any spills can be wiped off if done so quickly and not left for any period of time, the surface offers a scratch resistant finish but is not resistant to very sharp objects.

Old Boot’s Vintage Velvet is a unique and luxurious velvet. It has a subtle horizontal effect and distinctive lustre giving a unique matt sheen that produces incredible depth of colour and variety of shades. The yarn is spun to create a subtle irregular slub, which is so fine it does not open the pile surface giving a dense and even texture that is soft and luxurious to the touch. These unique qualities create a rich, deep colour and exceptionally beautiful texture that changes and adapts in various lighting conditions producing a characteristic vintage velvet look and feel. Made from 100% cotton and woven in England, this sophisticated velvet is 40,000 rub tested and is recommended for domestic as well as commercial use. Available in a great range of stylish colours from soft warm neutrals to cool and rich tones, our Vintage Velvet is an exceptional addition to the Old Boot’s family of finishes.
