If you insist upon quality and elegance, leather furniture is the best choice.
While fabric upholstery degenerates with time, leather improves with age, developing a rich color and luster through the years.

The popularity of the black leather couch never fades. Often seen in contemporary spaces, the black leather couch is so very popular that it often shows up in spaces where it presents a design dilemma. The fact is, it doesn't have to be a dilemma, and it is all in your perspective and how to make it harmonize with its surroundings.
The black leather couch does indeed work with modern and retro, as well as casual, formal and contemporary styles. The key is all in the presentation of the space.
The first step of establishing cohesion with your new couch is with color. If you want to make a bold statement use bold, bright colors such as red or a granny smith green, for example.
Another bold approach is to use white accents, such as choosing white pillows with black piping. Many animal hide throws and accents are gorgeous with the black leather couch. The careful choice of the type species of hide, whether faux or genuine, will lend a modern style accent or a western accent or other, to your leather couch.
Those who dislike leather office chairs have simply never had a quality product.
Complaints are often of the leather office chair being hot as well as deterioration of the leather with splits, peels and cracks within a short amount of time. There are reasons for this, and the Leather Sofa Company can provide you with a soft, comfortable leather office chair that won't put you in the hot seat.
The first has to do with the quality of leather. Simply put, most leather office chairs are made of poor quality leather. Unbelievably, many retailers line of leather office chairs are made of scrap leather bought in cheap lots. Even worse, these leather scraps were of thin, poor quality leathers to begin with. These are most often split leathers, or bonded leathers. Inferior leather cracks and splits long before you expect it.
Leather that can't "breathe" traps the heat transference from your body and keeps it there placing you in a hot seat.
Short of hiring an interior decorator, furniture arrangement can be a daunting task. Rooms often contain challenges that thwart our arrangements every which way we turn. Multiple entries and windows almost never seem to be located conveniently for arranging furniture.
There is a simple means of exploring arrangement options without buying software for your computer, hiring an interior decorator or moving heavy furniture multiple times. With a paper you create a scale blue print of the room and cutouts of furniture to 'try' in different arrangements.
With this plan in mind you can accurately determine what you have room for. So go ahead, make your paper floor plan and then order the beautiful leather furniture you have been wanting.
First, measure the room and choose a scale to work with. A half inch scale generally works well but choose whatever scale you are comfortable with. For example, a half inch scale represents 1 foot, and a 6 foot couch will be represented with a 3 inch 'model'.
There are a few interior decorators today that simply lack the ability of the full vision of design. These particular designers call matching sets of furniture names such as "matchy-matchy" and "carton-clones". They recognize the beauty, as well as long lasting quality of modern leather furniture, that it can look good with any style, but confuse homeowners by saying you don't want to create a "ocean" of leather furniture. Their recommendation is to use only one piece and mix with fabric furniture!
My observations of this type of designers work is that they generally create boring and bland rooms of discord. For those of us who want style, class, function, and beauty in a room, leather furniture (in multiples) is the furniture of choice.
Leather furniture is more than just a design element. It is a common sense approach for the budget minded who want furniture to last a long time. It is the perfect choice for the homeowner who wants a natural element in a space. It is also a statement for those of us with discriminating taste that chooses to add class as well as beauty to a room.

The history of leather is quite interesting and dates back further into history than most people realize. The earliest known artifact of leather dates at 40,000 B.C. while the most abundant evidence of leather craftsmanship dates to around 10,000 B.C. during the upper Paleolithic era.
Leather as clothing provided early man with protection and shelter from the elements. As a utility it enabled man to store and transport goods as well as being used as a covering for shelter in some cases. Leather used for arrow quivers and containers for storage was among early uses.
In time, other materials for clothing became available and leather moved into a category of armor and bridles for horses before being used for fine furniture.
The earliest known examples of leather for furniture are in leather chairs used within the early dynastic period (3100-2686 B.C.) in Egypt. These chairs were constructed with frames carved with the images in ebony, ivory or carved and gilded wood, utilizing cloth or leather for upholstery.
A loft is an open space located at the top of a commercial building according to Webster's dictionary. To some, a loft is also what has been traditionally called an attic, or attic apartment. In a loft you typically have an open space that lacks closets, though rental lofts will provide a functioning kitchen and enclosed bathroom.
When rented, constructing interior walls probably won't be an option. As my grandmother used to say, "You will have to make do." In this article tips for decorating a large loft apartment are provided.
First, you will need to define your spaces. Decide where you want to locate a sleeping area, dining room and living space.
Second, most lofts have very high ceilings. Be prepared to purchase large furniture because typical furniture will appear small, inadequate and disproportionate to the space. The best style choice is likely going to be modern or contemporary with their clean lines and minimalist design. If you plan on an industrial design choose furniture with metal legs and accents to provide a continuity of design extending into the furniture.

The Leather Sofa Company provides over 120 different selections of leather finishes and colors. Though not an exact science, studies have proven that colors can play an important role in the effect of our moods. When choosing the color scheme of your room, choosing a color in furniture can play a vital role in mood as well as an aesthetic space.
The most popular colors in leather furniture are typically black and brown. Going into detail with the personality of colors can help you decide how you will choose the colors in your living space.
Blacks usually will work best as an accent color but should never be used as the primary color in a room. Black is often associated with dignity and sophistication. A black leather couch will provide a nice contrast in rooms with white or neutral walls. Avoid a dark room with dark walls and all black furniture as it can contribute to depression. Black can provide a lovely and dramatic contrast in zebra rugs and geometrics with a black leather couch. Black and white art with just a bit of red will coordinate nicely. Use red or white for contrasting accents.
When you are considering the purchase of a leather couch and want the best from the perspective of durability and quality, there is no equal to full or top grain leather. You may be wondering just what the difference is between the two premium grades of top grain and full grain leather.
When you choose full grain leather furniture you receive the thickest leather available. It is usually the same thickness as the bovine hide it came from. On the other hand, top grain leather is exactly what the name implies. Top grain is leather that has been shaved off from the outer layer of full grain. When choosing between these premium leathers it comes down to your choice of durability.
Full grain leather is more durable and will last longer due to its thickness. It is more resistant to dirt, spills, wear and to tears. Full grain leathers very thickness acts as a tough shield of protection. In regards to quality and longevity it is unsurpassed. Full grain leathers are chosen from the finest hides and retain their natural marks. By being unaltered it maintains the natural fibers of the hide, and therefore its strength. Full grain is "breathable" leather resulting in less moisture from prolonged contact. Full grain leather develops a lovely patina over time.
Home bar, home saloon, or home pub-the name varies and so does the design, but most people picture either a table top bar or a stylish, relaxing space that has all the features of a classy bar downtown.
If a relaxing space dedicated to a home bar is in your plans the following may assist you in both design and budget.
First you must decide upon the location for your bar, and how much space will be dedicated to it. Next consider power and plumbing access. Place your ideas on paper in the form of a draft. You may want a 12 ft. bar but if it is going to make the space look crowded, you will need a smaller bar. Budget is the next consideration and whether you will do the work yourself or hire a carpenter.
When you picture your home bar, and the vision that comes to mind includes mirrored backs and glass shelving behind the bar, be sure to include lighting to highlight the bottles of liquor for some glitter and glam. One or two neon signs on these shelves and on any head wall (if any) over the bar itself will add realistic bar features and some relaxing ambience.
