Barry’s Downtown Prime

Project Details

Nestled within Circa, a chic resort new to the Las Vegas Strip, is its nostalgic heart. Barry’s Downtown Prime brings a throwback aesthetic to Fremont Street that combines the best of every Vegas era. Imagined by the design team at Punch Architecture, the interior brings together moody tones, rich woods, glitzy metallics—and irresistible leathers from Cortina—to set the tone for an unparalleled Las Vegas experience.

Barry’s Downtown Prime is a steakhouse that feels like it's been there forever, but that there’s never been a place quite like it. The 3,200 square foot space is divided into stunning private dining rooms, each named after iconic eateries of Las Vegas’ past. Each area is packed with personality, but never feels anything but personal.

To help execute their era-defying design, Punch Architecture turned to Cortina’s expertise in a timeless material: leather. For example, the distinctive dining chairs are clad in Collina, a full-grain pull-up leather with aniline authenticity. The cozy tufted booths are upholstered in Athene — an Italian leather with exceptional color depth and a glossy finish.

His aesthetic is a celebration of contradiction. Traditional, yet innovative. Historical, yet forward-looking. Streamlined, yet meticulously crafted.

Richard Wrightman Design
Desk Detail
This is the world of visionary New York furniture designer Richard Wrightman, who creates collections and bespoke furnishings from his studio in Long Island City.

Wrightman recently turned to Cortina Leathers to help him execute pieces combining his exceptional wood and our resilient, luxurious Bremen and Rhine nubuck leathers. “This is a return to the authentic. A mix of memory and invention,” says Wrightman.

Now nearing 20 years in business, Richard Wrightman’s interest in British campaign style began with a late 19th-century collapsible chair that belonged to his father—not unlike the leather-strapped Chatwin series he produces today. “I appreciated the functionality of the design. I felt that the chair had its own secret history of places it had been before my father acquired it. Campaign is romantic and timeless.” Cortina Leathers is proud to serve Wrightman in realizing his vision. “Designing furniture is about having all senses fully engaged,” he says. “What I aim to do is to design something that is unique.”

Cortina Leathers Angels Envy

Angel’s Envy Distillery

Project Details

Smooth, warm, rooted in history. So describes the fine bourbon whiskey at Angel’s Envy Distillery—and also the recent remodel of their office complex.

AngelsEnvy Case Study
The distillery’s reputation for perfectionism extended to the reimagining of their historical, early-1900s brick headquarters. They turned to Joseph & Joseph Architects, who collaborated with interior designers at The Kimball Office, to create a modernized, flexible, functional space. The finishing touch? Chairs upholstered in fine leathers from Cortina.

The Angel’s Envy complex sits in the heart of downtown Louisville near the unmistakable bend in the Ohio River. Their historic building offers character at every turn: arched windows, exposed brick, wood beam ceilings. To modernize their office spaces while honoring its heritage, the team from Angel’s Envy reviewed furnishings with designers from The Kimball Group. They selected office chairs upholstered in our Showcase Eco leather—a beautiful top grain, biodegradable product known for its quality and performance. To outfit the new office-adjacent collaborative seating area, they selected seating upholstered in our Davenport—leather with a luxuriously soft hand and exclusive Crypton® protection.

“Angel’s Envy has been very impressed. We are proud to have a showpiece, not only in our distillery, but our offices as well,” says Andrea K. Yorgy, Controller at Angel’s Envy.

Renaissance Gateway Atlanta

Project Details

It’s a luxurious take on the layover—the Renaissance Atlanta Airport Gateway Hotel.

Renaissance Gateway Atlanta 2017 Old English (2)
The three-year project is a compelling mix of Southern history, diverse culture, symbolic artwork, and luxe touches to welcome weary travelers. Principal and celebrated interior architect Lauren Rottet says: “It’s about letting a place have its own voice, something you can’t find anywhere else.”

From lobby to reception to every guest room, Rottet’s design starts with simplicity and symbolism. To reinforce the point of view in tactile, comfortable touches, designer David Davis chose resilient Cortina leathers—hand-antiqued Old English in Camel on  benches, and Rustico leather in Cannella on the lobby’s banquettes. These high-traffic areas require resilience, and each leather was chosen to withstand the demands while giving business travelers an unexpected touch of luxury along the way.

At Home with Crypton®

Project Details

"Leather's always a natural choice for dining rooms and banquettes. With Crypton® in the mix, it's even more worry free, without sacrificing any of the leather's natural beauty." - Patrick J Hamilton

When interior designer Patrick J Hamilton approached the refresh of this sophisticated Manhattan residence, he saw white. The most ambitious element in his clean, modern proposal? A sky-high custom dining banquette outfitted in pure white leather. He knew the combination of material, color, and application would require innovation to keep it looking crisp.

Hamilton chose Cortina Leathers’ Caprone in Bright White, and ordered it finished with Crypton® performance technology for added resilience. Bring on the red wine.
