Check out these examples of well-chosen leather sofas that make their presence felt in a number diverse spaces:
For the leather sofa with soul (that is, for the leather sofa that’s really pretty old and, well, is looking its age), embrace the charm of rugged imperfection. A careless throw and some pillows on the sofa can hide the biggest eyesores, while the rest of the space can carry out the charm of rustic (primitive?) style.
When something stands the test of time, we know there’s a reason for it. Usually it’s the thing’s genius, in one way or another, that makes it attractive and desirable over the course of several decades (each representing decidedly different style trends).
