Get To Know One Of The Most Popular Types Of Leather | Presenting The Egg Chair (I/II)

Leather is that faithful friend and material that we find everywhere. This material is present in our clothes, shoes, accessories, and even in the furniture of the places we visited such as cafes, lounges, stores, home, etc. There are countless pieces such as the Egg chair (which we will talk about in the next blog) that are upholstered on it and that tend to bring some curiosity to most people since not all of them look the same.

You may wonder why, and the answer is that not all leathers have the same properties or go through the same processes. Currently there are about 5 types of leather and today we will talk about the most frequent one and we will show you how it looks through a piece of iconic furniture in the world of design. Let us begin!

Aniline leather

Aniline leather is one of the leathers that looks more natural since it even has certain stains typical of the original leather. According to Wikipedia this is “a type of leather dyed exclusively with soluble dyes. The dye colors the leather without producing the uniform surface of a topcoat paint ”.

So as you can see, its appearance is due to the process it goes through.

Top 3 Types Of Sofa You Can Include At Your Living Room (II/II)

In the previous blog we talked about the first model of sofa which was the loveseat. We mentioned a very precise and sleek model and now is time to continue with the other types of sofas.

Modular sofa – Mario Bellini sofa

The modular sofa is one of the most chosen types when people have a more spacious place since they tend to be larger pieces than loveseat or regular ones. 

According to Simplicity Sofas, the average size for a 5 seat sectional configuration with equal sides is 95″ x 95″ or 98″ x 98″ with depths of 36″ – 40″. We must mention that exists multiple options such as the Mario Bellini sofa that has the following dimensions: Height: 26.4”, width: 113.4”, depth: 37.8” .

The Camaleonda sofa, as many people also called, is the perfect example of a modular modern piece because it shows very clean and dynamic lines, light color, and sleek material which is the iconic aniline leather.

Floor sofa – Togo sofa

The floor sofas have a more relaxed and informal appearance. They are recognized for having a lower height than regular sofas.

An example of this type of sofa is the Togo sofa.

Top 3 Types Of Sofa You Can Include At Your Living Room (I/II)

Within the furniture world, there are plenty of styles and designs that we must be aware of when we intend to decorate or remodel our spaces. So, if you are about to remodel or decorate your home for the first time, it is important that you previously nourish yourself with information about the structures that best suit you. Today we will show you three types of sofas that are the most used in the homes of American families. These three sofas are adapted to certain needs that we will show you later, let’s get started!

Loveseat – LC2 sofa

The loveseat is basically a two-seat sofa that has an average size of 58 inches. This is perfect for apartments or condos. Thanks to its dimensions, it adapts perfectly to the rooms that the apartments and regular condos have configured. As an example there is the LC2 sofa or Le Corbusier sofa which reflects a quite elegant and functional style that combines with various pieces and color palettes.

The LC2 sofa is fully upholstered with Italian leather, which makes it a truly durable and versatile piece, and besides, who doesn’t love leather?

2021 Best Leather Sofas Options You Should Know About (II/II)

In the previous blog, we talked about why design lovers love leather so much and explained a brief overview of the LC2 sofa. Taking into account the aforementioned model, it should be noted that within that same collection – Le Corbusier’s LC collection – there is another sofa with the same upholstery and stainless steel. The piece we are talking about is the incredible LC3 sofa.

The LC3 sofa is a variation of the LC2 sofa for when you have more members in the family and you want to offer a comfortable backrest. As all sofas in this category it is upholstered in fine and soft leather. The LC3 sofa also has the same padding as the previous one, but compared to the LC2 sofa, this one doesn’t have a double cushion.

Another of the perfect options for this 2021 is the Florence Knoll sofa. This type of sofa generally falls into the modern / mid-century category because it reflects the traits that both styles share. These traits are basically the clean and defined lines, the leather material, and the steel accents. As you can see, this sofa has a similar description to the previous one but the difference goes back to the beautiful and striking buttons that this sofa has inserted in its backrest. These buttons are what give them that retro touch that subtly contrasts with the modernity of their structure.
