Leather Sofa Trends For Spring 2021

Leather Sofa Trends for 2021


Spring brings fresh new looks! From pastel flowers, green leaves, and new pastel leather colors.  As the earth tones of winter fade the new spring/summer looks take over.  This is the time to give your living room a refresh.

Our living room is a place of gathering and enjoying friends and family.  New looks for the warmer months are now in order.  Out with winter tones and in with new cooler colors of spring.  It is time to change from winter throw pillows and throws to a softer cooler look for the warmer months ahead.

Traditional Leather Furniture Trends for 2021

Traditional leather furniture is always in style.  Rounded arms surrounded with nail trim make a statement like no other style of furniture.  This style of leather sofa and chair are often found in homes that display traditional characteristics like wainscoting, brick, and a lot of natural light.

American made chesterfield sofas upholstered using top grain leather are also a popular choice for the traditional home.  A statement piece that is recognized as good taste.  These beautiful hand tufted sofas and chairs pair well with other traditional pieces like wing chairs or cocktail ottomans.

Modern Leather Furniture Trends for 2021

Cooler colors, curves, and plenty of comfort.  More modern looks include low flat arms, curved backs and larger scale sofa styles.  Exposed wood is also a popular addition to modern leather sectionals this year as well as puffy soft seats with big puffy arms. This look is always a modern favorite and this spring we find a lot of interest in this type of sofa.  Since many of us are spending more time at home, comfort is number one.  There is nothing more comfortable than a down filled seat and your favorite movie.

In a home using modern leather furniture there are often a mix of leathers and fabrics, colors and textures.  With the modern motif there should be a flow of interest.  For instance, adding pictures and accessories can bring things together when done right.  Also, remember your sofa is usually a focal point so comfort, color and quality are a must when choosing this important piece.

2021 Spring Furniture Trends

Natural Aniline Leathers

Pure aniline leathers are popular for 2021.  These natural hides are soft, supple, and particularly interesting.  They are high quality leather cow hides that are left in their most natural state.  Only color dyes are used to finish these beautiful hides.  Pure aniline leathers are available in almost any color for sofas and loveseats.

These leather hides can be used in either traditional or modern homes.  This leather is for those looking for the most natural feel and look.  Unlike finished leathers pure aniline leathers will change with use and the hides will tell a story.  As you spill or scratch these hides the color will fade, then as your body oils work back into the hide the color returns.

Many pure aniline leathers are finished with a wax surface.  As you use your leather sofa the waxes move around causing the surface to change.  A burst appears as you stretch these hides giving the top of the hide a two-toned effect.  A leather connoisseurs favorite.
 

2021 Spring Furniture


This type of leather is gorgeous and feels superb but not for those looking for easy clean.  These hides will show both water and oil-based spills.  There is always a balance between cleanability and durability.  These hides are just as durable as a finished or aniline plus leather, they will just tell your story.  Not good for neat and tidy households but better placed in homes that are looking for the most natural and pure leather look.
