Mix and Match: What Goes with Leather Chairs?

There's no better way to end a long day than by relaxing in a comfortable leather chair.

Good quality leather chairs are timeless and will always look as good as they did the day you bought them. They look good in any home, but there are some ideas you can use to further boost your room's design appeal. Here are a few items that go perfectly with leather:

1. Decorative pillows

Leather is a great neutral element with an amazing, rich texture. If you want to add visual interest to a room where you have a leather chair, decorative pillows are a great choice. Think about adding an accent pillow or two and picking patterns that accentuate the natural richness of the chair.

When it comes to fabrics, plaid wool and denim are both great selections. If you're more of an adventurous decorator and want a splash of color, you should pick contrasting colors. Black leather goes perfectly with turquoise and bright reds, while brown leather looks amazing combined with sunny yellow and navy blue items.

2. Throw blankets

A sure way to make sure leather chairs complement the aesthetics of any room is by pairing them up with cozy, luxurious blankets. This way, they will add a glamorous look and a natural feel to your interior design.

Throw blankets are great at making leather look more inviting and more comfy. They will nicely dress up leather pieces and soften up the look of the room. Fur/faux fur and leather is a luxurious, classic combination that most people love. If you're going for a more elegant look, try cashmere and fringed chenille throws.

3. Rugs make easy partners for leather chairs

An area rug will help you balance the scale of the leather chair in the room. This works really well whether you have wall-to-wall carpeting or hardwood floors, as the right rug can really help pull a room together.

Choose an area rug that complements the overall design of the room. If you're going for a traditional design, Persian-style carpets in warm neutral tones are a great match for brown leather chairs. For a more contemporary style, go with cool colors and a geometric or linear pattern on the rug.
