Everyone has their own preferences and opinions, especially when it involves a red leather couch. Options in using a red leather couch are to tone it down; balance it with a complementary shade; or to give it center stage. The following tips can create a beautiful room with a red leather couch.
If you want a contemporary style room along with a beautiful and elegant red leather sofa in a room where it is the sole shining star read on. Afterwards, we will discuss the Rustic style with a red sofa.
Perception in design is an individual characteristic. A neutral room with a red sofa is seen by many as an attempt to tone it down. That is often a misconception in my view. If you fall in love with a red leather sofa why not make it your focal point? You can achieve a contemporary room with a red leather couch by using the colors of white, grey, black or a mixture of these colors.
Home is where the heart is, where we relax and unwind after work, and where we entertain. Almost everyone has ideas of how we want our homes to look and function. The style we like, the modern leather furniture we want. Achieving this goal can be difficult and we often overlook opportunities. Let's look at some common design dilemmas and the solutions.
Dilemma #1- Your room is different than your ideal. Having a plan for decorating is a good idea. You probably have pictures of rooms you like, but your room may be laid out differently or be a different size. Choose the features you like best and incorporate it into your plan.
Let's say you love the pictured fireplace, the arrangement of the modern leather furniture around the windows, and the large wall for its artwork. The problem is your room is half the pictured room's size.
The majority of leather furniture sold in the United States is imported from China and Italy. Buyers in the market for furniture of any kind, including leather furniture should be aware of the poor quality most of these leather furniture manufacturers are producing. If you're shopping for leather furniture in Dallas knowing the difference in imports and quality made American products can prevent buying poor quality furniture that is not going to hold up.
Many Chinese and Italian manufacturers use inferior materials and it begins with the frame of their products. They use wood that most often isn't hardwood and is not kiln dried. Kiln drying basically heats the wood, drying the moisture from it and killing any insects or larvae that may be inside. Wood that is not kiln dried can warp and shrink and is likely to have insects inside to eat the wood up.
The contemporary style is one of today's most popular choices in decor. Its clean strong lines, well lit open airy spaces and minimalist approach is appealing to a great number of people. Contemporary leather furniture exemplifies the contemporary style with its long lasting and enduring nature and simple beauty.
The sophistication of contemporary style is reflected in its simple color scheme of white, cream, beige, grey, black and tan. The shades of these colors may vary and can display undertones of other colors to add more visual interest.
Large open spaces are a classic with contemporary style. Bare spaces are also an important feature in the contemporary style, using balance to prevent a room from appearing to be under furnished. Clutter and crowding, ruffles, fringe, flowery prints or ornately carved wood are not a part of this style. Contemporary style is sleek, minimalist, sophisticated and neutral.

Leather furniture's popularity and the demand for it continues to climb, and it is now considered to be the most popular furnishing in the U. S. This has of course, fueled a surge of imports, so if you are looking for American made ensure that you receive it, and be cautious of the wording. For example "made with leather", means it isn't all leather. Assembled in the U.S. means it is an import, shipped here and assembled. You won't have that problem with The Leather Sofa Company, as all of our leather furniture is handmade in Lewisville, Texas, providing all American Made Leather Furniture.
Our leather furniture is upholstered with the finest leathers available, full grain leather and top grain leathers. All of our materials the best available to enable us to make first quality finely crafted custom furniture that stands the test of time.
The Arezzo line of modern leather furniture by The Leather Sofa Company is well named. Other leather couch manufacturers produce an Arezzo line, but to my opinion their linear ultra-modern and fully contemporary leather furniture forms in no way reflect the historical significance of the city of Arezzo, Italy. Located in Tuscany, it is a city of ancient buildings, full of architectural details such as mullioned windows and loggia arches, as well as beautiful frescos by Piero della Francesca and other notable artists.
The graceful curves of The Leather Sofa's Arezzo line is in my opinion, a more appropriate tribute to the historical ancient city of Arezzo, Italy than any other. It is a very beautiful tribute as well, and fills my need for quality modern leather furniture that in my selection of leather finish and color, will complement my rustic elegance style of d?cor with its emphasis upon local history.

Shabby Chic is an eclectic style with little structure and few rules. If it is said to have any rules it is the use of furniture showing age, from mixed historical periods and the use of vintage textiles pulling it all together into a comfortable effeminate style of vintage elegance. It is a style where you can typically decorate for less, and save the money for the special purchases such as a vintage chandelier or a distressed styled sofa from one of our Dallas furniture stores. The Shabby Chic style uses salvaged furnishings and vintage textiles like those your grandmother probably brought out for "company" or reproductions distressed to look old. You can find ample merchandise at yard sales, estate, sales, thrift shops, second hand shops and flea markets. It is a style that is full of light with bright well lit interiors.
New homes, apartments and condominiums are getting smaller. This is partially due to the high cost of commercial property. In some cases, it is also due to the environmental movement as many new homeowners select a smaller space for its advantages. Less square footage means lower utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint, translating to less impact on the environment. This trend towards environmental awareness is one reason for the popularity of leather furniture in Dallas and nationwide.
Quality leather furniture made of premium leather by far outlasts fabric upholstery and simulated leather products. Its durability means less materials going into the landfill. The Leather Sofa Company always uses the very best leathers money can buy, providing a long life of our leather furniture in Dallas showrooms and other locations. You won't have to wonder if you are receiving real leather or fake when you purchase our leather furniture. That is because we only use the top two leather grades, those of full grain leather and top grain leather.
The transitional style of furniture combines elements from both traditional and contemporary styles. It is a style for those who find modern style too cold and unappealing, and traditional style to ornate and old fashioned. The transitional style is often called an "updated classic" because it avoids the ornate characteristics of traditional style, as well as the stark straight lines found in modern contemporary leather furniture. In transitional style the lines may be straight or use soft, sweeping curves without the extremes found in traditional furniture. Shop our transitional furniture under the styles tab to view our selection of transitional leather sofas in Dallas.
Transitional furniture is typically of medium scale to avoid being too large or too small. Wood finishes are typically light in color, as a dark, somber room is never a feature of the transitional style.
There are different grades of leather available on the market, and The Leather Sofa Company only sells the top two grades, full grain leather and top grain leather. While each grade of leather has its own care instructions there are general care tips suitable for all grades of leather furniture including the premium grades of leather available at our furniture stores in Grapevine, as well as our other showrooms in Texas.
Leather is a natural material that is 50% stronger than any other upholstery material. Leather will maintain its beauty and appearance for many years when properly cared for. With proper care it is common for a good grade of leather to last for 15-20 years or more, outlasting any other upholstery four to one. Of all upholstery materials, it is the easiest to care for.

Many homes today use design inspiration that can be traced back to European regions, or from exotic eastern origins. With the exception of the North African nation of Morocco and Egyptian influences, African style is often overlooked and can provide the earthy, exotic and warm color inspired ideas for those looking for these elements. The savannas of Africa offer a natural element for design inspiration from the cradle of human civilization, and from the furniture stores of Frisco, TX and The Leather Sofa Company.
Like any other style, the African style room may use just a few accents of Africa or it can be laden with the prints, earthy African masks, wooden sculptures and other elements to create a room that could be straight out of the African continent itself.
Leather is an element of the African room, fabrics simply can't contribute in the way that leather furniture does to this style. A black leather couch sitting atop an area rug of black and white zebra stripes, while behind the sofa hangs a large print of a zebra herd on the African savannah can provide the feel a world traveler hankers for. Add a wall color of creamy white for a more contemporary feel, or a lush rich caramel brown for a warm, earthy aura. When coupled with the natural element of leather furniture from our furniture stores in Frisco, TX Africa can come alive in your living room.
Today's tufted leather sofa comes in all styles and forms. Many people consider tufted leather furniture to be elegantly masculine and picture it in dark colored club chairs or a dark Chesterfield.
However, the tufted leather sofa or any other tufted furniture, need not appear only masculine. The fact is the frame, the leather, color and finish selected will create a different look and effect upon a room. Tufting can be used on almost any style. To further expand upon the possibilities of the influence of a tufted leather sofa let's look a little further into what tufting is.
There are different types of tufting, and the most common are diamond, biscuit and button back.
