Trend Alert: 5 Leather Chairs For Your Mountain Home


Leather furniture is a bit of flashpoint for the decor-obsessed, and lately we’ve noticed interior and furniture designers resurrecting classic leather chairs. Known for both their durability and style, stylists are integrating leather chairs and chaises into mountain spaces with a modern twist. Like exposed beams and hardwood floors, some interior decor will always be in style and leather is definitely one of those classic mediums that will match any style. 

These timeless pieces of furniture is something we think every mountain home needs. For some inspiration, here are 5 of our favorite leather chairs


Leather Armchair

In the living room below, we see the whitewashed walls and simple color scheme we've seen in so many Scandinavian homes, but with a few twists. The weathered leather furniture and antique rug bring texture and warmth to the space, and the wall of books adds a lived-in feel.

Leather Butterfly Chair

Originally designed in 1938 by the Argentinian architect Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, the Butterfly Chair has been popular among design enthusiasts for decades. It's also a great choice for those just starting out in their first apartment or, in the case of the folding variety, anyone looking for last minute seating.

Leather Safari Chair

The safari chair has its roots in the campaign furniture of the 19th century. Danish furniture designer Kaare Klint based his 1933 design for a 'safari chair' on the Rorkhee chair, which was created by British Army engineers stationed in the Indian town of the same name. Swedish designer Arne Norell put his own unique twist on the style with his 1964 "Sirocco" chair, and in 1965 Jens Quistgaard created a version in wood and chrome. Owing to the design's long history, it's possible to find many different variations — in leather, canvas, or even animal hide, all with their own unique appeal.

Leather Bar Stools

We’ve been taking note of a new crop of barstools with leather seats and backs. Could the bar stool be the new leather sling chair or woven lounge chair? We like to think so. PIctured below are the roadhouse black leather bar stools from CB2.
