Coffee table next to a leather sofa – what to choose?
No matter if the sofa is made out of leather or any other material – there also should be a coffee table. It’s an amazing place to set up a coffee cup, but also place a book or some snacks.
The functionality should be matched with an appropriate presence though: that’s why you should pick the coffee table carefully. One with tempered glass might be a good idea, since it fits the elegant vibe of a leather sofa, but a fully wooden coffee table might also look good. Whichever option you choose, keep in mind that leather sofas look better with darker shades, so white table will not be suitable.
What to put under the sofa?
Decorating around a leather sofa should also cover the floor. As the leather furniture might look a bit cold, it’s a good idea to set a fluffy carpet under it. You can choose a big, square one, which will fit under both the coffee table and sofa or one of a smaller size to set it iin front of the sofa, under the coffee table.
A round carpet is also a good idea – especially if you want the interior look warmer. Fluffy, circular carpet will definitely help you get a comfortably looking room!
A lot of comfortable pillows and blankets
Leather sofas have many advantages, but there is also one major minus of this type of furniture. The material can feel cold against skin, which will be especially bothering during the winter. That’s why it might be a good idea to fill the couch backrest with a nice set of pillows: not only will it help you protect yourself from the cold, but also it looks really good.
The same goes for blankets. Slung over the sides of the leather sofa, they will be easily accessible should you feel cold in the evening, and at the same time – they will provide you with a really nice and warmly looking interior.
Brown likes green
There is no better way to decorate the surroundings of a leather sofa than to place a few nice potted flowers nearby. Keep in mind, that the brown shade of the leather looks really good with dark green flowers – those two shades are especially elegant together. You can set the flowers on a table nearby or buy a special stand or wall flowerbed.
