If you're thinking about getting a brown leather sofa for your living room, then you might be joining the many other families who choose brown leather for their homes. Arguably the most popular color for leather sofas, brown is a hit because it is a neutral color that matches so many other colors. People also like brown leather because it is luxurious and rich, as evidenced by the popularity of the chocolate brown leather sofa. But what kind of sofa is best? Which will best match your living room decor, and what brands are worth buying? This article will explore some of the answers to these questions.
Whether you're getting a 2 seater brown leather sofa or a sectional sofa, a small brown leather sofa or a large one, you have to get the color right. Brown is not just brown- it can be light brown or dark. The dark brown leather sofa is by far the most popular, as it has been around and is a tried and true color. It is the sofa for the study and for traditional looking interiors. Dark brown is more serious looking and more imposing, so it may be good for the formal living room that receives formal guests.
Light brown, on the other hand, is still luxurious, but with a sort of refined elegance that sets it apart from the darker browns. It suits modern interiors very well, as it is less heavy looking. Light browns are earthy and soothing at the same time and may have more in common with cream colors than with the typical brown.
Some of the brands you are likely to come across are Natuzzi, Ashley, and the sofas on offer at Ikea. Ikea has a nice modern brown leather sofa selection, with somewhat minimalist but very accessible designs at relatively affordable prices. Ashely has a huge selection of leather sofas, many of which feature full grain leather. They also offer synthetic leathers that are cheaper, but not the same as the real deal, obviously. Natuzzi is a brand based in Italy, but operations were sourced to China, where quality has reportedly suffered. For all brands, check for reviews on the internet to learn about the specific sofa you are considering. You can learn about quality issues online that can probably only be found online and then save yourself from buying a shoddy product.
