When I think of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington the first thing that comes to mind isn’t the Civil War or Crossing the Delaware. No, I like to remember their passion for affordable quality leather furniture. Sure we have heard how Lincoln lived in a one room log cabin, but did you know that cabin was tastefully appointed with a fine red leather sofa and matching chairs? How about Washington chopping down the cherry tree? Did you know he used the wood in that cherry tree to help craft a gorgeous leather upholstered settee?
History book only tell you half the truth, you need to get the full story from commercial like this one from “The Leather Factory”.
