Leather sofa design ideas

A leather sofa design brings a note of grandeur and sophistication to any space with minimal effort.

There are sofas and then there are leather sofas. A leather sofa design that is alluring and comfortable is a chic update to a space. Precisely why many homeowners prefer to invest in a durable, high-quality sofa with beautiful leather upholstery. And once you’ve experienced the charm of a leather sofa, there’s no going back. Yet, we know that it’s an art to do up a space with the latest leather sofa design. So, here we are with our design ideas.

Edgy Leather Sofa Design For Industrial Interiors

A leather sofa design works well for a living room with industrial-style interiors. The brown shade blends with the aesthetics of the overall space which comprises the brick-cladding wall, wooden flooring, freestanding bookshelf, veneer-finish modular kitchen, coffee table and the TV unit with open shelves. The sofa is definitely an edgy addition to the room, isn’t it? And this is a good time to remind you that a sofa and a couch are not the same.

This living room’s leather sofa set design in lush cream spells sophistication and luxury, especially with the matte black wall in the background. The black gallery wall with its mounted lights, panelling and art complements the embellished sofa. The wood finish details on the sofa chairs enrich its charm. We love how the combination of black and cream lends a dreamy vibe to the space. The refined details such as the wine rack, rustic coffee table and chandelier add to the opulence.

So, when you plan your living room or drawing room, make sure that the room’s design complements your chosen leather sofa. Here are more ideas for some splendid sofa colour combinations.

The luxury quotient of a room goes up instantly when you spot a leather sofa with a recliner. We love how the recliner makes for a relaxing atmosphere in the earthy tone of the room.
