The Well-Worn Sofa

As a designer, one of the most agonizing pieces to decide on is the sofa, and it’s completely understandable, as in most spaces, it is the focal point of the room. There are countless numbers of styles, sizes and textiles that can wrap the piece, but I have to say, there is something so sexy about a well worn leather sofa… Now I’m not talking a $499 deal for a 6-piece “Bonus Leather” winner (and if you act now we’ll throw in the coffee table and floor lamp), hell no… I’m talking leather that looks like a broken in baseball glove… Like a great pair of jeans, that have been molded to hug everything in the right places, the same holds true for the leather sofa…


Here are a few examples off Pinterest for you to consider, the next time you’re in the market for a sofa… Now, I know it’s not always possible to get a good vintage find, but you can help the look along by choosing leather that is distressed or have natural flaws or texture… Leather that is too smooth can run the risk of looking really tacky, really quickly… Now I’m not saying that for everything, but I think you know what I’m saying…
