On a recent trip down to Washington DC from our headquarters in northern New Jersey, we took some time out of our day to stop by WineLAIR in the city’s West End neighborhood - just east of Georgetown. This private, membership-based lounge and bar serves as a community for DC’s wine enthusiasts and can be found next to the Ritz-Carlton. The location represents the first US-based expansion of the popular European WineBANK concept which has locations in Hamburg, Vienna, Frankfurt, Basel and Cologne.

Design a Custom Leather with Jamie Stern

Posted by Jamie Stern on 12/14/22 5:32 PM

First of all, why design a custom leather? Interior designers come to us with custom leather requests for a variety of reasons. Sometimes a leather is out of stock, discontinued or just too expensive. Sometimes they need a more durable version with extra protection for a high-traffic area. Sometimes they have a specific vision for a leather but it doesn’t seem to exist.

Whatever your reason may be, creating a custom leather shouldn’t be a daunting process. At Jamie Stern, we believe it should be an engaging, hands-on experience that puts the designer in the driver’s seat.

Whether you’ve worked with us before or are exploring the world of custom leather for the very first time, our team of experienced project managers and artisan leather finishers will help you bring your vision to life in the form of a beautiful leather sample (or strike-off). The kicker? This process is complimentary and only takes one week!

Reducing our overall carbon footprint while still offering unprecedented pricing, flexibility and quality is certainly not the easiest of endeavors, but it is the one we are most proud of.
