Why Leather Is A Stylish Choice For Summer

Above, leather chairs introduce a soft texture to this contemporary dining area by Kendall Wilkinson

Soft yet strong, leather’s luxurious feel and unmatched durability make it a classic choice for upholstery and accessories. (Plus, it’s one of the few materials that gets better with age.) While many often think of leather as a material that’s ideal for chillier temperatures, we think it’s ideal for year-round use. Whether you’re going for a traditional or modern look, there’s a leather piece that works for your interior. Here are just a few of our favorites:

When we picture the classic Chesterfield sofa, it’s usually one upholstered in a rich leather. But this version has an unexpected elegance that comes through its cream-colored leather upholstery (a choice that works with many color palettes). With its mahogany legs and beautifully curved arms, it is a stunning piece that works well in both modern and  traditional settings.
