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 colors, meaning 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.
A faux leather sofa can be cleaned with a damp rag instead of using a wet vacuum or spot cleaner after a small spill.
Genuine leather needs to be cleansed with a special leather cleaner.
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’s decor. 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 various styles and colors, from casual to stately. Some of the living room furniture 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 living rooms use leather furniture as an accent rather than 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 of living room ideas featuring leather furniture!
1. Dark Leather Sofa and Recliner in Double-Height Great Room
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 brown 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.
2. Upholstered Dark Leather Armchairs Face White Ottoman
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 rich, dark leather, while the others are brown velour.
3. Sleek Chrome and Black Leather Sofa Side Chairs
An incredibly stark white living room with French doors leading to a terrace. Two sleek chrome and leather armless chairs are paired with the white contemporary couch. Soft, sheer white grommet curtains frame the windows and French doors.
4. Loveseat and Two Accent Chairs Face Fireplace
In a living room that is a crossroads between other rooms, it can be challenging to create an intimate area for conversation to welcome your visitors. Since the fireplace is between two French doors, it only makes sense to pair a loveseat with two accent chairs.
The leather is paired with a soft white cloth loveseat and a glass coffee table.
5. Caramel-Colored Ottoman Doubles as Coffee Table Between Sofa Set
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 accent pillows in a matching shade to pull color to the darker sofas.

7. Light Gray Sectional Surrounded by Black Leather Chairs
The curve of this gray L-shaped sectional sofa leads into a chaise lounge, which is perfectly positioned if you want to lie down while watching television.
