Decorating Ideas for Black Leather Furniture

Posted on

Black leather furniture offers two distinct advantages over other fabric choices: the sturdiness and ease of maintenance of leather and also the stain-hiding abilities of the color black. Unfortunately, black leather furnishings can present decorating difficulties. Although black leather furnishings works well with white and chrome, the end result can look too clinical and cold for a lot of homeowners. Finding the right balance between black leather furnishings and the rest of the decor is essential to a successfully decorated room.

Contrasting Colors and Fabrics

Decorate with black leather furnishings using contrasting colors and fabrics. Buy accent pillows in breezy fabrics for example linen and cotton which include colorful patterns. Accent pieces in bright colors such green and coral will add a thrilling pop of color to some black couch, but make sure to break up the look with lighter hues, for example off-white carpeting or a tan chair and ottoman set.

Modern Accents

Boost the black leather furniture with silver accessories for any modern look. Replace your television stand having a silver metal one, and purchase a matching bookcase or shelf. Make use of a coffee table and end tables featuring silver legs and sleek glass tops. To prevent a cold or sterile look, use accent pieces with soft, warm textures and colours. To break up the silver and black palette, throw several beige pillows on the couch, or perhaps a fluffy, off-white rug on the floor.

Retro Style

Make use of the black furniture as inspiration for any retro decor style. Hang black-and-white images of classic movie icons, for example James Dean, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe in your walls; use elegant, sophisticated frames to prevent a young look. If entertainment isn’t your lifestyle, look for bold, 1950s-style wall decor, like a “starburst” clock, or a piece of vibrantly colored abstract artwork, similar to the 1960s. Buy accent pillows featuring vintage-style monochrome polka dots. Set out antique glass vases full of brightly colored flowers.

Sophisticated Monochrome Decor

Mix the black furniture with crisp white decor and accents for any classy look. Accent black leather couches with monochrome zebra-striped pillows, and place a fluffy white rug on the ground. Hang white linen drapes like a fresh and breezy touch. Purchase a coordinating chair featuring black-and-white-striped cushions. To include a splash of color towards the space, look for pillows, rugs and throw blankets in deep red or vibrant blue shades.
