Love my new couch!

I took my 15 year old leather couch to Armando to re-cover. We used cowhides and fabric and embossed leather. The end result is a brand new very chic look. I love it! The time was much faster than I ever expected and it was done exactly as promised and specified. The work was high quality and you could tell there were no shortcuts taken. There were absolutely no issues at all. I was just very impressed. So many of my friends have asked for his number. Thank you Armando!”

Exemplary Skill and Service

Armando and his assistant truly reflect what service should be. They came to our home on time and brought back to life several pieces of our leather furniture at a fair price. I would highly recommend him to anyone.”

Better Than New!!

Armando re stuffed my leather sofa and love seat and cushions and re webbed the frames and re stuffed the cushions on my wicker sofa and chairs. He patiently explained the process, bringing various foam densities with him, so that I could choose how firm I wanted the cushions to be. My furniture is more comfortable now than when it was new!! Armando is an master at his craft, meticulous, efficient and thorough. I am so very pleased with his work. I would highly recommend him. Thank you, Armando, for an amazing furniture restoration.”

Just Like New!
I was shopping for new furniture and I nothing compared to quality of my existing furniture. Armando restored my 18 year old chocolate leather couch and love-seat to amazingly like new. Professional and excellent customer service. Completed work within the time he stated and I am extremely pleased. Thank you Armando for a job well done.”

Very skilled craftsmen!!! Also very nice people! We couldn’t be more pleased and definitely recommend them to anyone reading this, as well as to our friends and family. Five stars all the way!”

Great job
Armando responded quickly; showed up on time and a did a great repair on a seriously torn recliner.
I felt the price was very fair for the quality of workmanship. My husband and I are very pleased. Highly recommend.”

A True Craftsman
After the dog scratched my leather sofa, I did not have much hope for it ever to look decent again. Came across Strictly Leather who came out and quoted the job assuring me that they could fix it. Armando arrived on time and began his magic. He repaired both my sofa and side chair to what it looked like when I purchased it 10 years ago. Armando is very skilled individual who knows his craft. He gave advise on how to care for the leather items in the future and recommended the products to use. I wish all repair people took this much pride in their work.”

I still can't believe my eyes!
Armando saved our couch! After ten years it was scratched, cracked, and faded. After he did his magic we have a brand new couch! He matched the dark brown leather perfectly, restuffed the sagging cushions and delivered it at the exactly at the time promised! I highly recommend using him before you buy new leather furniture.”

Kevin BelknapJan 03, 2016

“Excellent workmanship! Will be recommending to all who need custom leather done. Went above and beyond in all categories.”

Scott FarrarNov 17, 2017

This is the guy that you want to handle the job. Armando of Strictly Leather is a true professional and knows what he is doing. He and crew are courteous and respectful of your home and your time. We had a leather loveseat and chair redone and it was done to perfection. We couldn't be happier with the work done and the pricing was more than fair. Really a 5 star job! If you need something done call them - Dwayne - October 2017”

Leather Chair Repair
I contacted Armando and he replied and came to look at the damage to the chair quickly and professionally. I have two matching leather chairs and an ottoman, they all had dog scratches and one of the chairs had rips from the dog. He was actually able to search and find nearly a perfect match for the leather so he only had to replace part of the leather that was damaged and did a great job cleaning the rest of the leather. They were on time, did work as promised at the price promised and returned the chairs exactly on time. The two guys that picked up the chairs and returned them were very careful and professional.”

JimSep 14, 2017

“I contacted Armando about repairing an ottoman and sofa that was in sad shape.
Everything he did was professional! He showed up on time, called me to give progress updates and delivered the finished project when he said he would.
The furniture is better now than when it was new. He made several very helpful suggestions (we added taller legs to the sofa to make it easier to get up from). We added firmer cushioning etc. etc.
I am very pleased with the results.”

Could Not Believe The Difference
Armando and his team did such amazing job cleaning and re-dying my leather sofa, chairs, ottoman. They also reupholstered a leather headboard, it is fabulous! My furniture all looks better than when I purchased it 15 years ago. He also re-stuffed my sofa and chairs, which made a huge difference, they are actually much more comfortable now.

I found Armando on the internet, called him, he responded immediately, came over, gave me a quote and showed up to the job on the date and time we agreed.
He and his team were very courteous and respectful to me, my home and my furniture.

I wished that I had called him years ago. So very pleased with Armando and the work he did for me. He was very thorough and meticulous and did not cut any corners.
Don't wait, just call him and get it done. You will be glad.

Debra HozerApr 17, 2017

Imagine a white leather sofa...perfectly restored! I really can't believe how amazing it looks. After an extensive home remodel, I really wanted to save the sofa and Armando more than saved it- HE MADE IT LOOK TOTALLY NEW! We are SO happy!!”

Outstanding Work
I would like to thank Armando and his team for an absolute fabulous job! Armando was very patient from the beginning in explaining the process to redye the leather on part of our sectional, as well as answering all my questions. He and his team also replaced the foam cushion. That part of our sectional is like brand new.

I would highly recommend Strictly Leather and use their services in the future.”

A true artisan!
We could not be more pleased with the quality of Armando's work. He helped us pick the perfect leather to reupholster a very special piece of Stickley furniture - a leather recliner with a lot of detail work required. He and his team were VERY careful with picking up the chair, wrapping and transporting it safely, and the resulting work is simply perfect. He is a true artisan. Thank you!”

CarlMar 12, 2017

Strictly Artisan Work
We were fortunate to see Armando making a delivery in our
neighborhood. Our leather chair seat cushion had developed a split and
he was able to take the existing leather, turn it and remake the
cushion to look almost new. This gave the piece a beautiful look at a
tiny fraction of the cost for a new leather chair.
We asked if he provided upholstering for fabric cushions and he shared
that his father had learned the craft in Mexico over 50 years ago. His
dad completely rebuilt seat and back cushions for an antique "day bed"
with a wooden frame. Since the length is about 8 feet, the seat
cushion required two seams that needed to be matched. All of the
pattern matches are almost imperceptible and matching pillows were
beautifully made with cording and fringe.
We were extremely pleased with the craftsmanship and service and will be
repeat customers.”

Wonderful Leather Reupholstery !
We have 2 Stressless Leather Chairs by Ekornes..the leather had turned dark in areas over the years..we debated buying new ones, but so happy with our decision to have them recovered. Armando was such a professional and literally brought the cowhide to our home to see the quality and feel we wanted to dupllicate. Armando stays in touch with updates on questions and appointments, and we got exactly what we hoped for!! Thank you for your excellent workmanship and courtesy !”

Elaine WhiteApr 09, 2016

I still can't believe my eyes!
I would never have guessed that our leather sofa could look like new again! Armando is a master craftsman and is professional and courteous. I'm sure we're going to get many more years of use and when the time comes, I will call Armando/Strictly Leather to give it another life. Thank you Armando!”

Furniture restoration
I had my two couches and loveseat restored by
Mr. Armando and I can truthfully say that he is a true professional , a master of his work. The end result of his work was beyond my expectations. My furniture looked brand new when he was finished.
I would recommend Mr. Armando to anyone. Don't buy new furniture, give him a call. Thanks Mr. Armando. I Moye”

Superb Repair Service!
I was sadly thinking about getting rid of my leather sofa, love seat and side chair when I was given a referral to Armando's company, Strictly Leather. I was absolutely shocked to see.the magic Armando and his staff worked on our furniture! Our 10 year old furniture looks brand new. We are more than satified and thrilled with the outcome!”

Norma GonzalesJun 08, 2015

“We are a repeat customer. Our couch was in need of a facelift. Rather than buy a new one, Armando came on site and spent the day rehabbing it back. Great workmanship, attention to detail and prompt, courteous service is what you can expect. No reason we will not get another ten years plus out of our two piece leather set. Recommended!”

Andy L.May 15, 2015

Fantastic! Like brand new!
Fantastic work! My sofa and love seat look brand new. I was afraid that I would need to replace them due to hard wear and tear by my dogs and cats. Armando and his team were highly professional and skilled. They also were very careful to clean up completely when they left. I recommend them highly.”

Terrell FalkFeb 16, 2015

Awesome Work!
Armando and his team were absolutely flawless! They were on-time, neat and they literally made my ten year old leather sectional look brand new!!!! I trusted them and they didn't disappoint me.

Fabulous Work
Armando and his crew are amazing! So professional. He covered a leather chair of my Father's and it looks brand new. Saved the old leather for me to give a piece to each of my son's!
He cleaned and conditioned our red leather sectional sofa and it looks amazing. His crew is so clean and orderly. They swept behind the sofa and put everything back! Highly recommend him and his team!”

Elle BeithFeb 04, 2015

I feel like I just got a new sofa and love seat! The results are amazing! Armando and his crew were very professional, on time and were always making sure I was satisfied with every step of the process. Highly recommended rather than buying an expensive replacement.”

Armando re-stuffed and re-conditioned our large sectional, and made it look like new--and much more comfortable.

Don't Replace It - Call Strictly Leather!
Armando is a magician when it comes to Furniture. If you have a favorite sofa/loveseat where it has lost it's oomph, call Strictly Leather before you toss it. He will make it look and feel brand new all over again. I Highly recommend him and will tell all of my friends about him. Warning...There are a lot of shady furniture repair people and companies out there. I have unfortunately experienced a few myself. Strictly Leather is the real thing and they even warranty their work. Thank you Strictly leather!”

Renee' W.Jan 18, 2015

Sofa, Chair & Ottoman Like New
My sofa, chair & ottoman are 14 years old, faded from the sun and with some food spots from kids over the years but of high quality and in need of a makeover. Armando and his helpers arrived this morning right on time and, according to a previously agreed upon estimate, proceeded to exceed my expectations in every way. He had been recommended by a high end leather shop nearby and the results are stunning. They did their work in my home and left everything neat and clean after removing their equipment. I would use them again in the future and recommend them to my friends. He even recommended a product to maintain the condition of my newly reconditioned pieces!”

William GodfreyDec 16, 2014

Amazing Work
Armando and his team did a fantastic job brining our sectional leather sofa back to life. 17 years had taken a toll on it, and now it looks like new. I'd recommend his company to anyone wanting to refurbish rather than buy new. What a savings. Absolutely amazing work, and some of the nicest people to work with. We're telling all our friends about Strictly Leather!”

RobertDec 04, 2014

After researching leather repair specialists in the DFW area online, I contacted Armando and sent him photos of my leather couch that needed the cushion restored. He provided me an acceptable quote to repair and provided a range of cost. When he arrived at my home to preform the restoration, he informed me of the price which was near the bottom of the range of his quote which was appreciated. Armando and his son made my couch cushion come back to life and match the existing couch. I would highly recommend Armando for leather transformations. Thank you for your integrity and wonderful work!”

SamDec 03, 2014

“Armando and his team did a wonderful job on our leather couch. He repaired scratches, tears and restored the color as promised. Now you can't see the damage from 4 large dogs. Strictly Leather is the best!!!”

PatNov 16, 2014

Amazing Transformation!
Armando and his team transformed our worn leather sofa dramatically. We invested in our
four-seat leather sofa over 13 years ago. The sofa was faded from the sun, stained, and had many pet scratches. Armando repaired, re-dyed, and added new stuffing to all the cushions. The sofa is truly like new. I would highly recommend Strictly Leather. They display knowledge, professionalism, and courtesy.”

Amazing work
I've used Armando twice, once to re-dye my Thomasville leather couch, loveseat, chair and ottoman cushions and again last week to repair a chair cushion that my dog chewed a hole in.

I will always use him and refer him to my family and friends!”

WOW! Like new!
"WOW" was my reaction; my wife said "OH WOW!".
This is the third time we have called upon Armando in 7 years. Every time, we have found him to be honest, punctual, respectful and his work: simply amazing! This time, we had the cushions of a 15-year old love seat / sofa set recovered with new leather and the remainder cleaned - the look and feel is just like brand new! We highly recommend Armando! If you have a doubt, email me and I will send pics:”

HIGHLY Recommend

Armando and his team are extremely professional, extremely talented, and have the BEST customer service! I highly recommend them!!

Fantastic Workmanship

Armando and his son, Jaime, are the absolute best professional leather craftsman. They work magic on leather furniture and make it almost new again. I have been using the service of Armando for 15 years and he has provided quality service at a reasonable price. He is always is punctual, and delivers more than promised. You will not find anyone who can do a better job of restoring your leather.

by Marge and Larry Goodman on STRICTLY LEATHER
Furniture looks great!!

Armando was great to work with. He was very timely and thorough with all of our communications. Armando and Jaime re-stuffed and reconditioned two couches, a love seat, recliner and pillows for us that were over 20 years old and they look like new. One of our couches had many scratches on the seat cushions and he was able to match the color of the sofa and repair the scratches so well that you can not even see any of the past damage. We highly recommend him.


We were VERY pleased with Armando and his son and their work. They were efficient, professional and prompt. They took the furniture to our patio and dyed two Lazy Boy recliners purchased 15 years ago. The chairs look amazing! We are very pleased! He told us what to expect when they dyed the leather and we were astonished! They looked like new! VERY pleased and highly recommend. Armando gave us a quote and we paid him more than he asked! GREAT job!
