Too much leather?
August 30, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We just moved from a small condo to an old bungalow house (1929) and need to buy furniture for two rooms- the den and the living room. These two rooms are small and are next to each other and sort of open to each other via french doors...the doors are always open. The living room will be more for when we have guests I think, most of the hanging out will be in the den. We have a toddler and a baby and a sloppy English Bulldog (he does not sit on the furniture, but his hair and slobber can easily end up on the base of furniture). We are interested in a leather queen sleeper for the den (leather for easy care with kids) and in the living room we'd like 2 chairs and a small couch. Because of leather in the den, would it be weird to also get leather for the living room chairs? They'd be different colors, but is that too much leather? Here are the options, C&B Davis in "Saddle" and West Elm Livingston in "Wolf": http://www.crateandbarrel.com/davis-leather-queen-sleeper-sofa/s109919?a=1552 http://www.westelm.com/products/livingston-leather-club-chair-h861/?pkey=e%7Clivingston%7C3%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C24%7C%7C1&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules
