You would think that someone who writes an interior design blog is all easy and jumpy when it comes to changes in the home, right? I tell you what: I am not that kind of guy. Currently I am pondering a tremendous change for my living room (at least I consider it tremendous): I am thinking of getting a leather sofa! Yes, one of those beautiful brown leather sofas. Not dark brown, more like cognac. But why a leather sofa? Well, I really like how those brown leather sofas look in a boho interior. That mix of patterns, colours, fabrics and the raw brown leather – it seems like a perfect match to me.

Now I admit: Making such a decision ain’t easy. Moreover, the fact that my current BoConcept sofa is not really old nor worn out make it even trickier. Many questions pop up. Is it reasonable to exchange the sofa now? What will I do with my current sofa? Additionally, the new sofa I have in mind is a tad bigger – is that smart for my small room? Well, all good questions. But when it comes to interior questions I am so bad in answering them reasonably. Guilty as charged!

To get me into the mood, I was searching for some great inspiration on Pinterest. I have curated a few of my favorite examples for this blog post. I love the look of a brown leather sofa with a kilim rug or a monochrome rug, combined with kilim cushions and throws for extra cosiness. In combination with a low wooden coffee table I think this looks rad. Plus I like the colour palette of brown (leather, wood), blue (indigo), ochre, grey, and even some vibrant red and orange hues. Why not some dusky pink too?

So what do you think of a brown leather sofa? I mean both, in general and for my little home? I might need your collective help! When you imagine it in a boho setting with lots of plants around? Sounds not too bad, right? Right? Riiiight (*squeaking*)?

    Hi Igor, ich bin pro braunes Ledersofa! Sie werden von Jahr zu Jahr schöner. Könnte ich mir das gerade leisten hätte ich spätestens seit der imm eins!

    Und vor allem, es passt so wunderbar zu Deinem Stil! Und schön sind sie alle, da kommt es glaube ich nur auf die Proportion und die Bequemlichkeit an!

    Viel Freude beim Aussuchen

    Liebe Grüße
    Rita

      Oh danke Dir für die mentale Unterstützung, Rita!! Ja ich habe ja schon lange mit einem braunen Ledersofa geliebäugelt – vielleicht ist ja jetzt der Moment gekommen! Let’s see!

    I think you should get the sofa (life is too short).

      You know what: You are absolutely right, Holly! 🙂 Thank you xo

    Ich bin ja total überhaupt gar kein Fan von Ledersofas, aber ich weiß, wie es ist, wenn man etwas will, was man ja “eigentlich” nicht braucht. 😀
    Meine Meinung: Du bekommst aus einem neuen Ledersofa mindestens 1 neuen Blogpost raus, wenn du dich mit der Entscheidung noch länger quälst, sogar mehr (also ein Punkt fürs Sofa).
    Außerdem ist es schlau, das Sofa eher früher als später zu dir zu holen, dann kannst du dein noch nicht so altes BoConcept-Sofa noch verkaufen und das neue Sofa so zumindest teilweise finanzieren. (Noch ein Punkt fürs neue Sofa!)
    Ach, und dann kannst du noch über das Umstylen bloggen und ggf. über das Einpassen in die Wohnung, wenn das neue Sofa “zu groß” ist.
    Also eigentlich spricht nix dagegen und alles dafür! Außerdem macht es dich glücklich. 🙂

      Alexandra, ich danke Dir! Das sind großartige Argumente, gerade von jemandem, der eigentlich keine Ledersofas mag! 🙂 Merci!

        Ja, gell, das macht die Argumente noch wertvoller! 🙂

    A leather sofa is the best thing ever! (Against the background of 2 boys, 2 dogs, 2 cats here). It’s hopefully huge, comfortable and cozy and classic . Thumbs up all the way.

      Ah thank you!!! Comfy is crucial indeed. And good looking of course haha.

    A brown leather sofa will never go out of style, they weather well (I think they even look better broken in), and like you said can be styled any type of way for any season und ze trends. However I completely understand the fear of something too big- been there! Bought this massive but gorgeous sofa knowing it was bigger than my space allowed. Drove me insane- find bigger apartment or another new sofa??? But I’d go with the leather. Throw caution to the wind- space allotment be damned!

      Great advice Nikolas. Well I am looking for a bigger apartment already, it is just a bit tricky here in Munich. But I think I will go for the leather sofa – I am just too curious how it will change the look of my apartment and it is pretty comfy too (I tested it in a showroom).

        Haha I’m looking forward to seeing the post when you have it all worked out.

        • Reply Igor June 7, 2017 at 09:22

          I am looking forward to that too:-)

    I love the colour! It’s so much nicer than black leather sofas. And less common too.

    • Reply Igor June 1, 2017 at 15:30

      Yes I prefer a brown leather sofa. I think it suits my interior style better anyway!

    I like the “used” leather look.. Very practical as you won’t notice it ageing!

    • Reply Igor June 1, 2017 at 15:31

      That’s true. But I also like the process of ageing of leather sofas as – with a bit of care and love – they age beautifully!

  • Reply Daniel June 1, 2017 at 18:23

    Definitely. Leather looks better with age in my opinion too!
