We all know that a classic brown leather Chesterfield sofa can look quite dignified in a traditional library setting. Thinking of other types of modern leather sofas in natural colors or rich luggage tones, one might imagine a Danish modern setting, or something quite Italian and sleek. But there’s an in-between.
I actually wouldn’t have guessed that I’d find so many examples of cognac colored modern leather sofas so easily, and that they’d be in such tasteful decors, including Scandinavian interiors, Brooklyn brownstones, modern houses, and bohemian lofts.
These modern leather sofas mix as well with sheepskin as they do with kilims. Some are clean-lined sectionals, other a tad squishy. While most are in mainly white settings, many are mixed with deep reds, or yellow and green accessories. Here are 28 rooms with modern leather sofas in natural colors like cognac, caramel and tobacco that are worth studying (and emulating).
