Leather is a material that has earned a high value in the world of decor, upholstery, clothing design, and, of course, furniture design. Being a material of natural origin, over the years it became a highly sought-after resource by different types of industries that have been given many different uses to it.
Some accessories and clothes are exclusively made of leather: jackets, pants, belts, gloves, etc. The interior design and decor started taking this material into account as new styles were born and became popular. Some furniture pieces, such as the Woodrow Box Skandi Sofa, are famous for their elegant tan leather upholstery.
The most extravagant decorations take leather as a protagonist resource within different environments, not only in homes but in any type of common use areas and even work environments, such as workshops, offices, and commercial establishments.
The reason is that this material has many notable advantages: it takes the shape not only of any upholstery but also of floors and wall coverings, it’s highly resistant to water, fire, friction, it’s waterproof and it favors acoustic absorption.
It’s highly durable, much longer than traditional, better-quality fabrics, and this keeps looking good even after many years of continued use, even if you’re exposed to damaging agents like sun and heat. Furthermore, depending on the shape it’s given, leather is capable of developing flexibility as it ages. It’s so versatile that it’s used to finish entire floors with tiles that, if installed correctly, can last a very long time.
