Leather Sofas | Choosing the Right Pillows

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

I've had several requests from readers to share my thoughts on leather sofas and which pillows look best. Choosing pillows for leather sofas can be tricky, but it doesn't have to be.  Some of you have hand me down leather and a few have purchased sofas, but either way, you want to make it your own and allow it to reflect your personal style.  I've pulled together a few fresh examples that might help you with pillow selections.



This is a great example for the neutral lover.  Stick with a solid natural pillow and a neutral stripe. Let plants and accessories take care of the color in the rest of the room.

Liven things up with bold color, geometrics, and a solid pillow in a vibrant color.  Love the trim detail on the lampshade too!  The white ground in the patterned pillows is key!  Any other color might look too murky.

Here is another example of a floral on a white ground paired with a vibrant geometric.  The blue tones balance out the warm golds and leather and again, the white ground is key on the floral pillow.

Blue and white pillows and a creamy throw lighten these leather chairs.

Notice how everything is monochromatic with the exception of the turquoise accent color which balances out the warm tones.

The above sofa is anything but stodgy with this colorful mix of pillows in blues and reds.

  1. Great post Rene. I just worked on a design that involved leather couches and ended up using light blue/chambray pillows with touches of green! It lightened the sofa up and gave it a new look!

  2. Great post! The only thing I hate about pillows on a leather sofa is that they always slide around:)
