Welcome to our gallery showcasing gorgeous living room designs that feature leather furniture.
Leather, whether it’s faux or genuine, adds a level of distinction to any room, but none more so than a formal living room. The sheen of leather catches the eye, and the soft texture is often cool in the summertime, unlike cloth upholstery.
Leather furniture comes in many different colors, which means that a piece of leather furniture is as versatile as those with cloth upholstery. Faux leather is much easier to clean than cloth as well.
Instead of needing to use a wet vacuum or spot cleaner after a small spill, a faux leather sofa can be cleaned with a damp rag.
Genuine leather, although it needs to be cleaned with leather cleaner, still cleans up nicely.
For example, check the above living room. The rich red leather button-tufted sofa pulls color from the rich dark wood, from the multi-tonal stone fireplace, and from other fabric elements, including the accent pillows and floral valances.
There’s something about leather that adds sophistication to a living room. It’s as though leather is meant for adults who appreciate the finer things, and a room with leather means a quiet spot to relax.
Throughout this gallery, you’ll see leather sofas and chairs in a variety of styles and colors, from more casual to stately. Some of the furniture looks as though it wouldn’t be out of place in a high-class cigar lounge, while others are clearly more family-friendly, built for a family room.
Many of the following living rooms use leather furniture as an accent, rather than as a focal point, but you’ll see all the ways and styles that make leather an excellent choice for your next living room set!
We hope you enjoy the gallery!
The towering ceilings of this casual open-concept living room are host to a large ceiling fan with blades shaped like leaves. The large space has a dark leather sofa and a leather recliner to the right of the fireplace. Perhaps the most unique feature of this space is the secondary mantle stacked on top of the fireplace, which houses the television.
The seating arrangement in this more modestly-sized living room has a much more intimate atmosphere. Instead of a large sofa, four chairs are arranged around a white ottoman with nail-head detail. Two of the four chairs are a rich, dark leather, while the other two are a brown velour.
An incredibly stark white living room with French doors leading to a terrace. Paired with the white contemporary couch are two sleek chrome and leather armless chairs. Soft, sheer white grommet curtains frame the windows and French doors.
In a living room that is a crossroads between other rooms, it can be difficult to create an intimate area for conversation to welcome your visitors to. Since the fireplace is situated between two sets of French doors, it only makes sense to pair a loveseat with two chairs.
In this case, the leather is paired with a soft white cloth loveseat and a glass coffee table.
A much lighter brown ottoman doubles as a coffee table between two chocolate-brown velour sofas. To the right is an elevated wood-burning fireplace. A lighter brown ottoman allows for accent pillows in a matching shade to pull color to the darker sofas.
A single modern beige leather armless chair adds a subtle texture to this minimalist living room. The sofa it’s paired with has sharp, clean lines. To the right is a massive seamless window with a view to the patio. A long cubby above the entertainment center serves as a bookshelf.
