Whittemore Sherrill


Since 1946, Whittemore Sherrill has set the standard for home décor. With techniques passed through the generations, the company boasts a team of artisans who bring leather furniture into deep, sensual reality.

Whittemore Sherrill selects the finest leather hides from around the world, then builds sublime pieces to its customers’ specifications in its North Carolina facility.

Using American-made, eight-way hand-tied frames, the company has created a reputation for precision and stirring artistry.

All of its pieces are thoughtfully rendered from top to bottom.

  • Cushions – With high-resiliency foam
  • Finishes – Multiple options to highlight wood’s natural grain
  • Nailhead trim – A range in vintage, brass, platinum, and more
  • Pillows - Choices of fabric, leather, or fabric/leather combination
  • Contrast stitching - Can be applied to all welts or on all seams

Explore sectionals, chairs, and ottomans in styles from new to classic, cosmopolitan to country. For any lifestyle, there’s a Whittemore Sherrill option that will complete the look and feel of a room. This is furniture to be enjoyed for its comfort and style. Each piece is specially designed to have a lived-in, historied appeal.

From its organic origins to its placement in customers’ homes, Whittemore Sherrill follows strict construction guidelines:

  • Frames - Traditional hand craftsmanship with modern manufacturing. Each frame is precisely cut and hand assembled using kiln-dried lumber. Double dowels form sturdy, long-lasting joints
  • Eight-way Hand-tied Spring System - Traditionally the best-known technique for ensuring long lasting comfort. Solid interlace web bottom enhances each frame. Springs of various gauges and heights are securely attached to the full web bottom using clinch fasteners
  • Filling Material - On most styles, urethane foam, polyester fibers, and cotton felt. Marshall units are used when thickness of back and styling permits. Dense layers of polyester batting, cotton, and urethane foam achieve optimal contour and comfort. Outside arms and backs are padded to assure a smoother surface and neatness
  • Upholstery - Hand-assembled by skilled technicians who have spent years perfecting their trade. A marker pays close attention to the varying textures and distinctive features of each genuine leather hide

With reinforced frames, hand-assembly, and rigorous tailoring standards, Whittemore Sherrill has secured a place in the hearts and minds of even the most discerning furniture mavens. Specialized upholsterers and trimmers sew each piece, hand tuft, pleat, and individually apply nailhead trim where needed.

Whittemore Sherrill furniture engages as many as 70 experienced technicians who help engineer durability and style into each piece. For over three decades, it has won over customers and has made a true statement in the world of leather upholstery.
