History

Welcome to Buffalo Collection…where you can finally create your New American West home, just as you imagined it. The American West and the majestic buffalo are integral to our country’s beloved historic tradition. As our nation strives to renew its unity and pride, we invite you to join us in welcoming back this great history. Through creative ingenuity, we can weave it into the fab ric of our lives and the lives of future generations. It all began in Hotchkiss, Colorado, an almost impossibly beautiful place, and home to Scenic Mesa Ranch and originally, its buffalo herd. The Valley is a patchwork of organic farms, orchards and native sagebrush neatly tucked beneath snowcapped 13,000-foot mountain peaks. Off the beaten path and on the road to nowhere in particular, it has attracted artisans, independents and visionaries for decades. It’s in this idyllic setting that founder Julie Littlefield (pictured below) settled this aptly named Scenic Mesa Ranch. A botanist by profession, she put her knowledge and experience to good use in restoring native buffalo range on the ranch and developed a commercial buffalo meat business. As guest lodges were built, she used available buffalo hides to make ranch furniture that could handle cowboys, hunters, and dogs. Together with the immense talent and creativity of local artisans, we have developed a uniquely rugged yet classic, finely handcrafted line of American-ethnic furniture and accessories called The Buffalo Collection. Our distinctive, durable furniture is a brilliant slice of Americana, equally at home in Sedona or Syracuse. With superb details, it nicely bridges the timeline from an older, simpler way of life to today’s contemporary, more sophisticated lifestyles. Buffalo leather furniture is virtually unparalleled in its cushy softness, strength and durability. We’re pleased to say our tannery uses a “wet-white” non-chromium tanning process that is earth-friendly and environmentally responsible. Combined with the craftsmanship of the strong hardwood frames, hand-tied springs, and down-filled cushions, you have a superior product of heirloom quality. We are sure you will enjoy this beautiful handcrafted furniture in your home. Our new corporate office and flagship store are located in historic downtown Scottsdale, Arizona. We invite you to visit us at Buffalo Collection – 7044 E. Fifth Ave. Warm regards, Michael & Laura Levenberg Owners
