Coordinating fabric and leather


When it comes to choosing the style of your leather and fabric sofas and chairs, try to stick to a shared theme. For example, if your leather sofa has a cosy, modern aesthetic, choose a fabric sofa or chairs with a similar, contemporary finish.

Likewise, if you’re looking for a vintage themed living space, then pick classic furniture to create harmony throughout the room. The Monza burgundy leather sofa cuts a modern shape with its low, inviting design, and can look great when teamed with the ultra-cosy Kirby armchair in frisco charcoal fabric.

Pick your palette wisely


Colour is key when mixing up leather and fabric furniture. Most leather sofas tend to be neutral colours such as black, brown, or cream, which can blend well with fabric sofas or chairs in complementary shades. For example, try pairing the Brandon cream leather sofa with a pair of Marseille armchairs in Balmoral beige fabric for a cosy, country-cottage inspired look.

On the other hand, if your leather sofa happens to be a more striking shade, select fabric furniture in a subtle, coordinating hue, to help balance out the effect. The Morgan range of fabric sofas and armchairs come in a range of beautiful steely tones, perfect for offsetting a brightly coloured leather chair.

Use accessories to bring balance to the room


In instances where one colour is more dominant between your leather and fabric sofas and chairs, you can restore balance and proportion using accessories and soft furnishings around your living room.

In a living room that features a grey fabric sofa as the centrepiece alongside a coloured leather accent chair, try bringing subtle hints of coordinating colours into the room using pillows, throws, or a handy storage footstool.

Mixing materials to create an eclectic space

Mixing up textures, materials, and colours is all part of the fun when it comes to creating a cosy living room scheme. For a vintage look, the Chesterfield fabric sofa is a fantastic statement piece, with its tailored button detail and scrolled arms.

The Carson leather armchair can complement the Chesterfield perfectly, with its classic style and solid oak turned feet. Complete your furniture set with a rustic coffee table and matching sideboard for a living space that’s steeped in old-school charm.

Whether you juxtapose contrasting textures and colours for a bold look or choose a mix of natural tones for a more streamlined finish, leather and fabric combinations can work in both modern and traditional living rooms.
