Leather has been a staple of high-end furniture for a long time. There has been a surge in recent years of using leather as a floor covering. Whether you are aiming for the southwestern inspiration that cowhide can provide or the innovative designs that European designers are infusing with contemporary leather rugs, PlushRugs.com has got you covered.
Technological advances have brought on new, novel techniques of treating, dying, and constructing leather rugs. The design, function, and longevity of leather rugs have been greatly improved. The designs and colors used in today’s modern leather rugs are as diverse as you would expect to see in any other rug style. The tired, old cow hide pattern is being replaced with bold patterns and vibrant colors. If your budget allows, you should look for “whole leather” rugs. They are of higher quality and reflect the true benefits associated with the material. Bonded or bi-cast leathers are scraps that are processed with chemicals and machines to form a fabric. These forms of leather are more affordable but usually not as durable or soft.
Leather rugs can add a rich color palette and interesting textural focal point to any room. Leather is soft and comfortable but also extremely robust and durable. Nomadic people have been traveling with leather as their sole source of shelter since the days of cavemen. This material’s durability has been time tested in some of the most brutal conditions on earth; so it should be able to handle your living room.
