I have never been a leather girl. In the past it has always just screamed “bachelor pad!” at me. But ever so slowly over the last couple years I have been exposed to some good leather, and it’s forcing me to reconsider. The key for me seems to be that it has to be an excellent, rich color and feel, and it should probably be vintage and worn, or at least weathered to look vintage. I love the above room but I actually don’t love black leather. It can be good but only maybe 10% of the time, in my opinion.
This gorgeous chair meets all the criteria. I literally used to hate this color, but now a good caramel leather it absolutely the best in my mind. Plus with that tufting, that vintage shape, and that worn finish, you can’t go wrong. Not to mention the lovely surroundings.
To be perfectly honest if you showed me this chair on a showroom floor or in a different style house I would probably say I hate it. The rest of this space is so cool and stylish that it elevates the chair. I really want dark walls.
