A leather sofa used to be a very large investment. It still is, to some extent, however thanks to the internet it’s now easier to find discount leather sofas than ever. Leather sofas can work really well in large homes, small homes, traditionally decorated homes or homes with a modern or contemporary feel.
Because sofas and suites are large, they can define a room. With this in mind, it’s important to try and design your room around the sofa, both in terms of the colour of the room and in terms of the furniture that you choose for the room.
There are various kinds of leather sofa available and they can be split into three broad categories: modern, contemporary and traditional. By traditional here we’re talking about sofas that might look a little rustic, perhaps their leather is a bit faded, or sofas that are traditionally styled, such as Chesterfields.
Modern leather sofas stylistically look quite simple, with few embellishments. They are often sleekly designed and therefore they can be paired with simple kinds of furniture, and modern bits of technology.
Contemporary sofas are a little more versatile, and whilst they can look great when paired with modern items of furniture and technology, they also work really well with antique furniture.
Traditional furniture tends to look best when paired with antiques, or with natural materials like wood. There are no hard and fast rules, and the right antique sofa could work well with technology too, of course you can use cabinets etc to hide things like TVs.
