The Leather Couch Craze, Part 4

There are so many other ways, besides the typical style that I described in Part 3, to decorate with leather sofas and couches.  What is important to remember is that -yes- each room in the following photos have leather couches.  But they each tell a different story as I described in a former post here.  Notice how hot leather chesterfield sofas are and how each tells a different story depending on the other items in the room.

Now . . . What am I going to say in our house with our own leather couch?!  I'll post about that next with an inspiration board I've put together to explain my plan.

  2. As individuals are following more vintage tendencies in household furnishing, a leather couch is selling more than ever.

  3. Actually, this main stream decorating with leather is an anomaly to our time period. Leather used to be even more incredibly expensive. There are not strong associations with leather couches in decorating from 50 years ago. Leather was a specialty item that people splurged on for an office or a library, and usually on an office chair or something smaller than a couch. Far more common in the vintage decorating (50 years ago) were fabric couches with a pattern.

  4. I read other reviews on Bobkona furniture and they were mixed. This is new and unrated, so I thought I would provide one.

    The delivery company Ceva did a good job delivering and nothing was damaged in the packaging. Shipped in three boxes. All hardware (had extra) and parts were included. Everything went together fairly smoothly and it took about 1 1/2 hours from opening the first box to everything being completely set up.

    The sofa is sturdy and comfortable. The waffle microfiber is a nicer fabric than the smooth microfiber in my opinion. The back cushions have velcro along with the sofa back to prevent the back cushions from moving around. Time will time if the cushions hold up.

    This is not a high quality or heirloom sofa, but for the price, it deserves 4-stars.
