“Any colour goes as long as it’s black,” Henry Ford famously quipped. Even though Mr Ford was talking about cars, the same definitely goes for interior furniture as well because black is a timeless colour that will never be out of fashion. We have come full circle, and black is the new black.
However, decorating your house or apartment with black furniture can be a bold choice, especially when the piece of furniture in question is as big and impressive as a sofa. You can opt for a smaller version, such as a black leather sofa chair, 2-seater sofa instead of a 3-seater sofa. It really is the piece for the brave and the fashionable, for those who are not afraid to make a statement inside their homes. For those who go big or need more space for families, you can also choose a corner lounge or L-shaped couch.
Often interior designers warn against using too much dark-coloured furniture because it could drain the light out of the room. On the other hand, you can use a dark or black sofa to create a cozy, homely atmosphere. For those worrying if a black leather sofa is too dark, though, it is easy to contrast it with lighter pieces like white or beige walls and furniture, and even brighten up the sofa itself with light-coloured pillows and a blanket.
A black leather sofa is an excellent accessory for certain styles of interior design. Of course it’s an old classic so it fits well into any home that is attempting to re-create the glory of the good old days in the décor. Especially if you’re aiming at a retro feel á la the swinging sixties, a leather couch is a great choice since that is the time when leather couches really became a popular trend. A modern black leather sofa also works well in minimalist designs since it is an easy way to create strong contrasts between different parts of the room, especially if most of the decorations and other furniture are light-coloured.
So you know that you want to purchase a black leather sofa but maybe you’re still unsure if it is the right fit for you. Does it fit the style of your house or apartment?

Leather has always been important for humans: in fact, it was one of the earliest materials used for clothing, tools and little items in early societies. Already in ancient cultures people used leather in their furniture; ancient Greeks had four-legged leather chairs, and wealthy Romans had armchairs made of leather. Considering how wide-spread leather couches are these days, you might not have even thought that they used to be a sign of great wealth and power since only the richest members of society could afford enough leather to use for the upholstery of their furniture.
This all changed in the 19th century, and leather furniture started to become more and more popular until in the 1960s it exploded and became an absolute trend. Everyone had to have a leather couch, and natural colours such as a brown or tan leather lounge were common in homes and offices. At the same time as demand grew, the options for shoppers also increased, and suddenly you could purchase your leather couch in all kinds of crazy colours – even pinks and greens (and yes, you can custom design your green sofa with us!) Nowadays the leather boom has calmed a little bit but it is still a great choice of material for a comfortable couch, and even with all the available options, the black leather couch is still one of the most popular choices. No wonder: black is always in fashion.
With the right protection and care, your black leather sofa can last you a lifetime!
