Leather is a fantastic material & with right treatment it will last a life time, at least. When we had small children, people would always recommend leather sofas to the living room, because it was so easy to clean. There’s loads of stylish sofas in leather. Our first furniture was actually leather sofas. We were convinced by family & friends that leather was a wise investment, as it would become a life purchase – as was the common approach in the good old days. I don’t know, we were never totally delighted in them, hot to sit in after a while & did not feel kind to the tiny soft bodies of our children. They were stiff quite simply. But one thing were certain at least, they are truly sustainable.We gave them to my in-laws who installed them in the reading room in front of the fire place…& they still look like new. The thing is that they are much more comfortable to sit in today, twenty years later. Amazing! Maybe, I’m thinking, maybe, I should take them back:)
Anyway, I pulled together some images in leather/skin as todays theme,
Take care / Marie
