Does Leather Living Room Furniture Ever Go out of Style?

Whether your home is contemporary, modern, or traditional, leather furniture adds homey, timeless, and understated luxury to your interior d├ęcor. Perhaps this is why leather living room furniture never goes out of style. From buttery caramel to rich Bordeaux, leather living room furniture comes in cozy colors that add depth and beauty to any space.

Warm Up a Room with Brown Leather Furniture

Soft, buttery caramel brown leather instantly warms up a space. The walls are a soft shade of cream, and the Natuzzi Editions tan sofas are incredibly inviting. You can add pops of color, such as yellow or coral, or keep it neutral with gray pillows and green throw. The contemporary style hugs you with comfort while the sleek lines and exposed block legs add depth and sophistication.

Leather furniture is traditionally dark, so adding light neutrals such as cream, grays, or greens with pillows, throw blankets, and paint on the walls helps bounce light around the room and add contrast. Natural elements, like fresh flowers, live plants, and botanical prints complement the leather's smooth grain.

Leather Furniture for a Transitional Living Room

If you have a transitional style living room, you may think that leather furniture isn’t for you. A mix of natural textures, including the Candace Chair by Bernhardt, liven up this living room. The cream-colored rug and glass and metal coffee table enhance the space’s elegant appeal. The sleek contemporary lines combined with traditional elements create a charming transitional feel in the space.

Designed to be as comfortable as they are attractive, transitional leather furniture coordinates well with micro-fiber upholstered furniture as well as traditional wood furniture. If you wish to give your space a more contemporary feel, accessorize it with abstract or geometric patterns. Plenty of throw pillows and houseplants keep the look relaxed and cozy.

Choose a Leather Accent Piece

If you’re not ready to commit to purchasing a leather sofa for fear it will dominate your space, start with an accent piece such as an accent chair, ottoman, or bench. These pieces will not only introduce you to the benefits of leather furniture, but will also give your space a carefully curated feel when mixed with pieces upholstered with fabric.

For example, the Elton Desk Chair from Monarch Fine Furniture by Century adds eclectic flair to any space. It adds a contemporary vibe to a room that features traditional design elements. The frame is crafted from beech solids and features walnut veneers. The padded seat and back are upholstered in light brown leather. Antique brass finished metal arms wrap around the back, bringing lightness along with a unique style to the space.

Leather is no longer a neutral hide, and many homeowners choose leather furniture dyed in shades from green to blue to yellow or red. If you prefer your leather furniture on the colorful side, treat it as a neutral. You can add accessories to either highlight or minimize the color. The colors you use around your leather furniture will depend on the theme or style you want the room to reflect, as well as the color of your sofa.

When you see all the different ways leather living room furniture can make a room comfortable, cozy, and stylish, it’s easy to understand why leather furniture will most definitely never go out of style.
