I will be the first to admit it, I am not a huge fan of leather. The first thing that comes to mind are bad 90’s couches, la-z-boy chairs a-la Frasier, and ultra modern furniture fit for an office lobby. While that may be harsh, I also admit that it is not status quo. Leather has grown on me over the years. Tufted, distressed, or trimmed with nail-heads, leather can be the perfect punch of texture that a room so desperately needs.
Leather can be warm and inviting, or modern and sleek. Either way, leather is a texture that can change the personality of a room in an instant. Here are some fantastically luxe looks of leather.
