Leather Sofas: A Great Starting Point in Interior Design
The first thing that the vast majority of guests will notice upon entering a living space is the seating arrangements. Thus, it stands to reason that the seating choices make great starting points for those decorating a home. Sofas or armchairs are generally considered to be the cornerstone of living spaces in interiors; they are the piece that pulls that rest of the interior design together and they are generally the piece that will also see the most use. It is for this reason that they should be the first consideration and the first thing on the list when planning to redecorate a living room, rather than something added as an afterthought.
The most important aspect of choosing furnishings for a new room is ensuring that they complement each other and work together to create a cohesive and stylish space. Leather sofas are one of the best ways to accomplish this, as their timeless style can suit any interior, regardless of colour palettes or era-specific design. Going for a classic Victorian interior with rich, deep mahogany and wine-coloured accents? A deep brown leather sofa would enhance the look to perfection and provide a great starting point for colour-matching and other furniture choices. What about aiming for an ultra-contemporary modern living space, with clean lines and a minimalist colour scheme? A sleek black leather sofa or three piece suite provides a unique focal point and can get designers and decorators into the modernist mindset, without being too overbearing on the surroundings.
The shape of a real leather sofa can also help to dictate the tone for the rest of the room. Curvy and round sofas are perfect for more homely spaces, perhaps rooms which are likely to have little ones or pets roaming around, while streamlined edges and low arms are better suited for more formal environments. Once the sofa decision is made and the general ambience of the room has been become apparent, the rest of the design decisions will fall into place much more easily, as they now have a striking focal point to measure up to.
Of course, the benefits of a genuine leather sofa go far deeper than simply aesthetics. They are traditionally one of the most durable pieces of furniture that will ever be purchased, so if the owners ever opt for another renovation, years down the line, the chances of the sofa being able to adapt to the new surroundings are very high. Real leather ages beautifully when correctly treated, so leather sofas are more likely to become more stylish, the older they get. They are also hardwearing without sacrificing comfort, with hardwood frames ensuring sturdiness and security, and pocket-sprung cushions creating a relaxing and comfortable place to sit.
