~debating leather furniture?~

I have a friend who is debating selling her furniture and going with brown leather.
So, this post is for her........
A few inspiration pics of leather furniture to help you take the leap~if you want too!

I love this first photo.
 I think it's because the majority of the room is white, the leather really stands out.
And I know this post is not about light fixtures, but WOW! 
 The combination of dark paint here and the leather makes this room very masculine, even though there is a very feminine chandelier in the room.
 I love this room!
Love the chesterfield sofa and I love the choice of pillows used on it.
I also love it when leather is paired with rustic wood like in this coffee table.
{see the first photo for another example of this}
 This room below from the Painted Hive is one of my all time favorites!
The light walls keep it fresh looking and still very cottagey. 
{is cottagey a word?}
 Again, loving the dark sofa with the light walls........
 The map on the wall along with the trunk make this space more masculine.
 Very dark, yet super cozy.
 You know I love zebra, so I had to add this picture.
I love everything about this look.
 Add light bright pillows to keep the look from becoming too stuffy.
Again, the walls here are a light color~notice a trend?
 Darker walls and plaid make this space more masculine.
 My all time favorite couch is the chesterfield.
All that tufting is fabulous.
I think with kids though I'd worry about crumbs finding their way in.






 If you are not ready to take the plunge and do ALL leather furniture, you can add just one accent piece like I did. We have a slip covered beige sectional, but I still love the look of leather.
So I added this club chair I bought off of Craigslist for a steal.
You can see the full post of our living room makeover here.
 A few more examples of chairs only.....

 Craigslist is a great place to find leather furniture.
In my opinion, the more worn the better!



 Have you visited Copy Cat Chic?
{it's on my sidebar}
I love this blog.
She shows you expensive furniture, accessories, etc. and then shows you where you can find it cheaper.
Take this Restoration Hardware sofa for example.
It retails for $3,995.00
 And this one, almost exactly the same for only $799!
 Again, this Restoration Hardware chair retails for $2,745.00
 This one, just $319.00!
I hope this helps Kelly!
All photos not credited I found on Pinterest.
Have a great Saturday!
xoxo

We added a leather club chair. The other sofa and loveseat are slipcovered down filled sofas we found at a resale shop. As comfy as those are, we still fight over the club chair!

I've been dying to get some leather furniture but don't know how it would hold up with the cats. I'm afraid they'd use it as a scratching post. But maybe it's too smooth for that. Love your pictures ... the copy cat photos really have me tempted now.

Jolie said...

Love the photos. I have a leather couch that I adore. My dog adores it more. It's held up very well over the years and I wouldn't have any other kind of couch after having my leather one.

Great post as I am planning on replacing the linen sofas with leather chesterfields, the kind that already looked aged as I think that they will wear better than the linen or at least I hope that they will :-)

Bon week-end à toi,

As much as I LOVE white slipcovered sofas I have stinky gogs I love more so we have leather sofas and we love them. It was pretty expensive but I know it will last forever and they have held up fabulously with pets. They are worn but I agree with you...love the worn look. To keep our family room light I have painted all my wood trim, mantel and book cases white and several pieces of furniture. The room is very open and receives a lot of light so the leather furniture doesn't make it too dark even though my walls are a deep color of brown too. Loved all the photos!! :)

I used to not like leather. But I've changed my mind. My hubby has always wanted leather. We may end up going with just a chair and go with a slip covered couch - when we finally get to the point of purchasing furniture! I do love the look of leather a lot now!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I've been going round and round about leather furniture, my denim sofa is in perfect condition but I'm so tired of the blue color, I'd only buy off of craiglist so far nothing has come up, it will though when I least expect it!

Dear Lillie said...

LOVE all the leather! And thanks for the link - just checked out her site and it's awesome!

Henhurst Interiors said...

Beautiful interiors! If she is not convinced to go with leather after seeing these rooms, she may never be.
Hope you are enjoying the long weekend,

We're ion the process of buying leather furniture for our new home, even some of the lamps have leather on them, it has that old timeless classic feel and look to it AND, as it gets used, it looks better!

The cylindrical chandelier in the second picture looks very unique, Melanie, it’s actually the one which caught my attention most. It’s fierce, yet very fashionable! Not to mention the lampshades on both sides of the white couch, what a good balancing of colors!

You have to know that natural material just like your skin is what makes leather so flexible enough when stretched and can easily return to its original shape.

Red Leather is giving more ambience in feel and also imparts more calming and additionally deluxe. So I always prefer red leather sofas more than black or any other color.
