As I walked around High Point Market over the past few days, I was taken by how many great leather pieces I saw. Color is infiltrating upholstery, and when it comes to leather, the patina gets better with age. From sleek black to on trend peacock blue, there is a gorgeous leather to add some zing to your rooms. A few scratches and spills give leather lived-in personality, making it well worth the investment.

Regina Andrews had a deep seated Chesterfield-inspired sofa with tufted back and loose seat cushion.

A classic Chesterfield in black leather with a smaller footprint from Century makes this an ideal piece for apartment dwellers.

An arts and crafts Eliza settee from Thomas O'Brien for Hickory Chair, upholstered in a rich brown leather.

A cream leather sofa, The Brigitte, from Global Views in a slightly midcentury modern silhouette.

Wesley Hall's tufted leather sofa with high back and sides and bolster pillows for a more tailored look.

Chic! Instead of an antique, try a tortoise finished side chair with woven rattan back, chocolate brown leather seat and personality from Century.

A lush natural suede - covered chair with tight seat and tight back from Century.

Cherry red leather on an English reading chair with button tufting from Wesley Hall.

Global Views gets into color with vivid orange leather on a Louis XVI chair, The Marilyn.

A caramel hued leather on a modified French 1930's silhouette in The 9th Street Chair from Hickory Chair.

Lee Industries diminutive chair with small wings in a gorgeous french blue leather.

Andres Arbus designed the now iconic French 1930's furniture being reproduced by Baker. Here, the Paquebot Chair with sleek lines and reclining pitch brings sexy back.

Cherry red leather is cheery as well as chic on Baker's Plymouth side chair.

All of the "chesterfield" pieces are great; the Baker "Arbus" chair won my heart. Thanks for the great images. Mary

I love the look of leather and my kids can antique it in a very short time.

Gorgeous examples - I loved the Eliza and Marilyn chairs the best - perhaps it's the combination of the leather and nailhead? Whatever it is, I was immediately drawn to them!
