Using Leather in Your Home

Back in the day – way before you and I were born – leather was mostly used to cover books, not to decorate one’s home. As you know, however, the use of leather has come a long way. Not only do homeowners incorporate leather into their interior design, but now there are a variety of styles and colors of leather to choose from!

If you love the look and feel of leather, add some of this gorgeous material into your own home with these ideas:

Upholstery

Leather seating has become a common design choice for many homeowners … and it is not hard to see why! The leather material wears well, which means you can keep your favorite sofa around for years. Leave the sofa bare for a sleek, modern look. Or, add some style with a couple of fun accent pillows and a comfy throw blanket.

Tabletop

Although leather is most commonly used to make couches and chairs, there are other unique uses for the material as well. For example, leather can be used to cover a tabletop like your coffee table or maybe an end table. If you choose to go this route, be sure to always use coasters and dust the tabletop weekly to keep the leather in great condition.

Woven items

Almost any piece of furniture could feature a woven leather design. This pattern is great for adding more visual interest and will help make an attractive piece of furniture even more appealing. You can find a woven leather pattern on the back of a dining room chair. There are even woven baskets made out of leather that resemble the look of wicker, without the uncomfortable and rough feeling.

Framed clocks or mirrors

Most of the clocks or mirrors you see today are framed using wooden, metal or plastic materials. They don’t have to be though! Leather can also be used to frame different décor items. The leather material will help these smaller items stand out in a room full of décor and furnishings.
