Leather Sofas – Our Pick of the Best

Looking for leather sofas? From mid-century designs to classic Chesterfields, we’ve picked a selection of our favourite leather sofas

Sleek and beautiful or soft and comfy, there’s a leather sofa to fit every style of living room. We’ve selected our favourite designs, from modern settees and mid-century loveseats to traditional Chesterfield sofas. While a leather sofa may be an investment, the beauty is that the upholstery will just get better over time. The right leather sofa can become a stand-out piece of living room furniture. Large three-seater sofas are perfect for busy family living rooms (where white fabric upholstery just won’t do), while a neat, buttoned sofa would work well in a small country living room. And then, of course, there are the clean-lined, modern sofas that radiate contemporary elegance. Whatever your style, take your pick from our selection of the best leather sofas available to buy right now.
