Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 23 of the best modern leather sofas you'll love in every top interior design style and trend! They are perfect for your living room, bedroom, family room and home office.

 

Can you believe fall is unofficially upon us? It’s hard to imagine that the holidays are just a few months away. This year I have been working diligently to create a beautiful, inspiring, and inviting living room where my family and I can relax. I purchased a fabulous sofa this summer that I absolutely adore. I’ll admit it was difficult to choose between an upholstered or leather sofa – I absolutely love both. This season there are so many gorgeous sofas to choose from, especially popular modern leather sofas, it’s unbelievable!

Over the years I have fallen more in love with modern square arm and contemporary slope arm furniture, especially sofas. They come in a wide array of sizes and styles, which is great since they will complement your existing furniture and home decor beautifully. When it comes to seat cushions, I personally love bench cushions as they’re perfect for those of us who enjoy laying down while watching a good movie! My new sofa has bench cushions and I’m more than pleased with my purchase – I’m obsessed!

If you’re searching for the perfect sofa for your living room, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 23 of the best modern leather sofas you’ll love in every design style and trend!
