I generally tend to prefer fabric sofas over leather ones but recently I have come across a few vintage leather beauties that I have really wanted to take home with me.
Lovely worn leather, classic design, timeless style
Before we carry on with beautiful leather sofas, can we just very quickly touch on the vast number of hideous leather sofas in the market? Why are such things even being made?? I get that leather sofas are generally bought for their practicality, but why not add in a bit of style to the list of criteria for such a significant piece of furniture? Please can people stop fuelling any further demand for fugly ones like these:
Bleurgh! Definitely NOT hot!
Enough of the nasties. Now we can relax with some inspirational pretties which not only marry durability with incredible style, but would also be investment pieces as they are sure to be loved forever.
Hard to go wrong with a chesterfield! This one is from Anthropologie but you could probably find a similar vintage one at a good price if you looked around.

The style of this lovely warm grey leather sofa from West Elm is rather like a modern take on a chesterfield.
Which one of these would you pick if you could take it home with you?
In other news, I am about ready to pop so I’ll say ciao for now to the blogging world.
I’ll be back after the event, when I feel I have regained some of my wits about me!
