This trend merges cutting edge technology with traditional values.

Studded, stitched, folded and formed, swatches and swathes of leather define luxurious schemes. From natural tan to coloured skins, the beauty of this material is celebrated through expert craftsmanship and redefined with contemporary treatments. We hunt for the finest hides.

EMBROIDERED

Stitched patterns enhance the tactile and opulent qualities of leather. The prevalence of this trend needs no embellishment.

FOLDED

Formed and folding over marble and metal frames, lengths of leather adopt a sensual sinuous appearance. The tone and tactile quality of natural tan complements dark-stained wood, brass and white marble alike.

STRAPS

The place for leather fastenings is secure. Buckles and bindings are influencing furniture design across the board, but there are particularly striking examples in seating. From smart, sophisticated styles to snug casual retreats and sturdy dining chairs, we select three seats with a strong strapline.
