Kirsten’s Favorite Saddle Leather Sofas

Some say that the sofa anchors the living room, while the other pieces of furniture are meant to complement the space. I completely agree! If there’s one tip that I tell clients constantly, it’s to invest in a beautiful sofa. One trend, which really isn’t a trend because they’ve been around for so long, is the saddle leather sofa. Other names for this style are camel leather or caramel leather sofas. This beautiful tone is quite refreshing from the classic whiskey brown. Here are my favorites on the market right now!

When choosing a sofa for a modern space, choose a sofa with straight lines and streamlined legs. For a more eclectic look, choose a ribbed or tufted sofa. The big misconception of saddle leather sofas is that you can only use certain accent colors for throw pillows and other fabrics. Very untrue! You can use almost every color of the rainbow! My favorite combinations are blacks and whites, deep gem tones and light pastels.
