Ashley Furniture Fake Leather Canadian Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP is investigating a Canada-wide class action against Ashley Furniture for selling furniture whose upholstery had the appearance of leather, when in fact it was not. The lawsuit alleges that Ashley Furniture led its consumers to reasonably believe the upholstery consisted of leather and was of similar quality, strength and durability as leather.

In or about April of 2008, Ashley Furniture began incorporating an upholstery product into some of its furniture, including sofas, loveseats, sectionals, and ottomans, which it marketed as “blended leather upholstery” under the trade name DuraBlend®. This type of upholstery is not leather, but rather a man-made material that incorporates leather scraps and fibre and mimics the appearance of leather. As a result, consumers were deceived into purchasing furniture from Ashley Furniture with upholstery that did not consist of leather, and instead was of such inferior quality, strength, and durability that it could not hold up to normal wear and tear.

Many consumers claim the upholstery on their furniture began to peel or disintegrate within a short period of time, causing pieces and particles of the top leather-appearing layer to come off and expose the underlying material, which was coarse in texture and off-white in color. Ashley Furniture has failed to resolve this issue and provide any remedy for the monetary loss they caused consumers.

The class action lawsuit identifies the group of affected persons as:

• All persons in Canada who have purchased furniture with DuraBlend® upholstery from Ashley Furniture.
