As my love of interior design has grown over the years, I have fallen more in love with modern furniture. One of the many things I adore about this style is how easy it is to incorporate it into nearly every living space. When it comes to living room furniture and accent chairs I’m completely obsessed with gorgeous modern leather armchairs.
Modern leather armchairs are perfect for the living room, the family room, bedroom, or home office to name a few. They’ll look brilliant paired with a contemporary coffee table, an upholstered sofa, or a classic side table and that’s just the beginning.
In fact, modern leather armchairs (or accent chairs) will look phenomenal in the midcentury modern, the modern coastal, or modern rustic home! Not to mention how great they look in classic spaces with just a hint of modern. This style is more popular than ever and can be accessorized with the furniture and home decor essentials of your choice.
A few years ago I purchased two leather armchairs before I bought my sofa. At first, I wondered what I was thinking? Should I have purchased the chairs after the sofa or had a better idea of how I wanted to decorate the room? In the end, I’m so glad I didn’t wait! I was head over heels in love with the chairs, and I designed my space around them. I eventually purchased a rustic coffee table, an industrial inspired media console, and a beautiful upholstered Chesterfield sofa! All in all, it all came together and it wouldn’t have had I not purchased the chairs I’d been coveting for years when I did. It really got my creative juices going and inspired me to finally redecorate my living room!
