Living room designs with leather furniture are elegant and timeless. Leather furniture is an expensive investment, but it is money well spent because the furniture will last many years and works well with many different styles of decor.
Leather furniture can dominate a room and draws a lot of attention. To offset impact of dark sofas, use light or neutral colors on the walls. Almost any color will work with natural leather furniture. Modern leather choices include black, red and white which work well with modern contemporary styles. Black leather furniture is stark and bold and might seem best suited for a bachelor pad, however, the addition of soft pillows and graceful vases in paler colors such as blue, lavender or cream can balance the room and make it a beautiful space for any home. If you have a whole set of leather furniture that overpowers the room, use some pieces in the living room and other pieces in your bedroom or stud. Browse catalogs and websites for living room designs with leather furniture ideas that could work in your home.
Like the little black dress every chic woman needs in her closet, leather furniture never goes out of style. Dress it up with Hollywood glamour by adding large movie posters and silver accessories or dress it down for a casual yet stylish country theme. Because leather furniture can make the room feel dark, use lighting to accentuate elegant room features and brighten the space. Use wall mounted lamps to accentuate the beauty of paintings and artwork in the room. Add a warm atmosphere with candles and table lamps. Living room designs with leather furniture are versatile and fashionable. Over the long term, using leather furnishings can be more cost effective than having to buy new furniture every few years.
