Classic Luggage Tan Leather - Family Room Facelift

Classic luggage tan leather is always in vogue whether you use it in a contemporary room or a traditional one.  Regardless of the style it always says chic and elegant to me.  My family room is getting a little refresh, so I went looking for some inspiration pics.

I love this sofa and how the owner mixed in tradition and contemporary. It looks so fresh and on trend.

This room is done with more of a contemporary or mid-century vibe and tons of color.  The leather definitely works in this room too.

This room is more on the traditional side and the tufted leather sofa is stunning.  I think this same sofa could easily work in a contemporary room too.

This shows how any color can go with luggage tan leather.  Definitely a classic.

Leather is so classic, it looks fabulous no matter where you use it and what style you have.

There is nothing more traditional or "Ralph Lauren" or "Hemmingway"  than paneled walls, leather and plaid.  This looks like Old Hollywood to me.

My daughter is redoing her familyroom, so I am getting this gorgeous sofa, chair & ottoman.

They will be replacing this.  This is pretty, but how can you turn down really beautiful quality leather furniture that will last forever. (This sofa is 30yrs. old and really in need of replacing.)

 When I get the hardwood floors in this room  and a cowhide rug (see last post for 2016 goals and budget) with that leather furniture, oh wow, tell me that won't be absolutely GORGEOUS.

If you like Thrifty & Chic on a Budget like me, I would love to have you follow me on any of the following.

  1. we have a leather sofa, chair, and ottoman and I seem to struggle with decorating around it. I will watch to see how you decorate for some ideas. I know you will have the room looking gorgeous! Sheila

  2. Marty,
    Gorgeous tan leather sofa, chair and ottoman, dear friend!!!
    Your room is gorgeous now. . .
    so with the addition of leather furniture it will be fabulous!!!
    I'm thrilled for you!!!

  3. I absolutely love your inspiration images and can't wait to see what you do. So far we have loved the navy leather sofa we purchased last year.

  4. That will look fabulous Marty! I love that type of sofa.

  5. I love these! I typically am not much for "neutral" colors, but that first one has me mesmerized!

  6. Can't wait to see it in your space Marty!

  7. I love the leather wing chairs I got for the front window. I wanted something timeless and chose luggage tan leather as I know it will always be in style!

  8. You really had some great inspirational rooms to share. Your sofa still looks so nice, but I do understand about wanting to change things up. I know it's going to look great! Happy Thursday, Marty!

  9. Marty, can't go wrong with a pretty leather sofa. We've had two over the years, but none at the moment. We do have two sets of leather wing back chairs. Wish we had room for a nice full leather sofa. My husband would love it!

  10. Very pretty, Marty. Leather is always a classic!

  11. Marty, I love the look of good leather furniture too and it's so durable! You've got some lovely examples of how elegant and timeless leather sofas and armchairs can look-- especially love the 1st, 3d, and 5th photos. So cozy and warm!

  12. Marty,
    We are getting ready to replace our leather sofas. My kids are now teens and I feel I can venture out into some lighter colors and other fabrics since they know how to take care of furniture now. So cool that you're getting that nice set. I would jump on that immediately.


  13. that furniture will look great in your room , PLUS, getting furniture off the wall- as in that photo is one of the best ways to make a room look updated, fresh and far more stylish.
    it will likely make you feel as if you are living in a new home~!

  14. Oooh so pretty! I have a recliner from Ballard in that color and I think I'll keep it forever!

  15. Wow that's really going to make a big change in the looks of the room! Can't wait to see it in there!

  16. Leather will be wonderful..I am looking into replacing our recliners....possibly into leather ones with style...not those ugly ones.....


  17. Absolutely gorgeous! And here I thought I wasn't a fan of leather.

  18. Hi Marty, I like that classic, leather too. Problem on my end is that the piece that gets to most use also gets the most scratches-lol.

    Good luck with your transformation.
