How to make leather work for your interior style
Leather can work really well with a variety of interior styles. Sometimes all you need is a few pointers and a bit of guidance on how to use it for your space. Colour choice and the size of your leather pieces are two important considerations. We’re here to help you work with leather in your home. Our stylists have put together three mood boards to show you how you can work with a little - or a lot of - leather, no matter your style.
Bohemian/modern farm house
Tan leather can bring warmth to a bohemian/modern farmhouse setting, thanks to its colour and texture. The Brixton sofa suits the style of this space, as it sits lower to the ground. This helps to enhance the open plan living layout, rather than divide the space or cut it off from the kitchen and dining. It also suggests comfort and a feeling of being cosy.
With a variety of different materials and textures (including the Tribeca Rug and Harvey Bench) included in the living room mood board, the boldness of the leather creates an effective contrast and makes a statement.
Industrial interior design styles include a variety of raw materials. Wood, brick, steel and concrete often feature heavily in industrial-styled homes. Being a raw material itself, leather is a natural fit and complement to industrial spaces, while softening these spaces with its smoother finish. An industrial space is designed to feel edgy, which is where the textural element of leather plays a part. An extremely durable fabric, a statement leather couch will last for years.
The Calvin Sofa pairs well with rustic concrete flooring and an exposed brick wall. The richness in both the walls and flooring contrast with the tone of the sofa. Black elements throughout the loft, such as the coffee table, bench, stairs and lighting enhance and provide depth to the space.
Modern design enhances the cooler tones in a space. Modern styles typically consist of a greyscale colour palette with black and white accents that make a strong impact.
The Lennox Sofa in royal grey is a piece in a unique colour, but one that emphasises the timeless look of Modernist design. Leather sofas with a sleek and uncluttered look are a great fit for this crisp design style.
