Leather: It’s Not Just for Sofas and Couches

Leather is one of the most popular types of upholstery, and can be used for virtually any piece of furniture you can imagine, from chairs to ottomans to bar stools. If a couch or sofa is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of leather furniture, here’s a few ways you can incorporate different types of leather furniture into your home décor.

Leather Dining Room Chairs Take Center Stage

When you use leather chairs in the dining room, you create a warm, relaxing atmosphere that evokes a life well-lived.

So the next time you want to spice up a room, try adding a leather chair, ottoman, or bar stool to shake things up.
