Decorating with Leather Furnishings

Leather adds texture and color.

Consider a touch of leather in your next decorating project. Leather adds great texture and color to a room, and most leather design elements are practical, too! 

Beware though that leather can create a heavy look, especially in its most typical design colors, dark brown and black. 

That’s why it’s best to balance dark pieces of leather furniture with design elements such as light paint colors and rugs, cushy throws and pillows, and soft fabric furniture and window fashions. 

Combine leather with complementary materials.

Another way to lessen the heaviness of leather design elements is to select a lighter color, such as beige, white, gray or sage green. Or you can add a tidbit of brightness with green, red or yellow leather!

Complementary materials and textures can also lighten up leather furnishings. Think:

  • Plush rugs
  • Glass or Lucite tables
  • Metal chairs and lamps
  • Light filtering, soft-looking window fashions
  • Wood or bamboo flooring
  • Natural grass wall coverings

Leather furnishings are versatile and practical.

Leather adds beauty to most any decorating style, from a traditional dining room to a classic living room to an urban-contemporary great room. 

Think about leather for these design elements:

  • Leather sofas and easy chairs, and even recliners!
  • Leather dining chairs
  • Leather headboard
  • Leather-fronted sideboard in the dining room or dresser in the bedroom
  • Leather-covered walls in a powder room or home office

Make a decorating statement in your next design project and add leather!
