Refurnish Your Home with Leather Furniture

When your home needs an update, one of the most elegant and glamorous ways to freshen rooms is by selecting new leather furniture. The timeless beauty of leather instantly updates your entire home -- and lifestyle. See how new furniture makes everyone happy and relaxed at home.

What Is Leather Furniture?

Leather furnishings include sofas, chairs, ottomans, benches and other accent pieces made of leather or genuine animal hide. Some people are satisfied with faux leather looks for various reasons, but genuine leather confers benefits that other fabrications just can't.

Enjoy The Benefits of Leather Furniture

Once you discover the benefits of leather, it's an easy call. This is a material meant for fine homes where you want your furniture to last.

  • Leather furnishings are known for their top quality. At Williams Sonoma, The Leather Shop offers only the finest leathers available.
  • Leather seating stays comfortable over time because its strength prevents sagging or stretching.
  • It also dissipates heat and cold quickly in a process called ""breathing"" by furniture makers and interior design professionals. This means you can sit and stand without sticking to the furniture, regardless of the weather.
  • Leather ages well, too. As the years go by, your furniture becomes more supple and inviting. The leather softens with age.
  • The good looks of leather are hard to deny, too. Dye is absorbed into the hide so that colors won't fade. Even in spots where you sit often, the color stays strong year after year.

Selecting Single Pieces and Sets

When selecting leather piece of furniture, you may want to start with either a single piece or go for the whole set at once.

  • If you're interested in seeing how leather holds up, begin transitioning the room with an ottoman or a bench. In a couple of months, commit to the matching sofa and loveseat.
  • Some people love a pulled-together look in their living room or entertaining areas. In this case, it's best to get all your pieces at once.
  • Fine leather is dyed in batches and furnishings are made to order. Choosing all your furniture at once helps to ensure consistency of color.
  • Remember that some styles or colors are available only for a limited time. If you can't live without a certain color or style, make your decision as soon as possible.
