Camel Leather

Leather is always a good option for families. It's durable and easy to clean. So it's no wonder that designers are always using leather for clients who have young kids. I'm not a huge "ready made" brown leather customer. It doesn't have the warmth or patina of a custom piece and it looks inexpensive.

However, I love the use of camel leather. It adds a welcome element of warmth and it's so unexpected. It also works with almost every color. It's still as kid friendly - but it's more sophisticated. Long live camel leather.

Beautiful dining chairs with wonderful patina. Just wipe them down when you aunt spills her glass of wine.

You can never have too much of a good thing. This would be a perfect family room if you have young kids or teenagers.

Great update on the leather lodge chair. Unexpected yet classic and contemporary.

What do you think?
