Leather is one of those ideas in design that is sometimes relegated to only masculine arm chairs.  Or big poofy black couches.  However, there are a lot of different ways that you can incorporate leather into your decor besides just seating.  Let’s take a look at some ideas.

Love this leather studded mirror. Such a unique accessory!  And the little leather stools really tie in well.

This white leather bedframe is amazing! So classic but yet so modern.

I don't think I would have ever thought to put a leather bench in a bath but it would be easy to wipe down!

A large leather ottoman instead of a coffee table can be a great accent piece.

Or you could just go with a leather covered coffee table!

Applegate Tran Interiors contemporary living room

This leather patio furniture is really crisp and modern.

Cima Lounge Chair modern pool

Or you could get real creative and use leather tiles on your fireplace. I think this is just amazing. What a statement!

Leather dining chairs in a traditional shape can be a great way to infuse a little classic charm into a room.

Or you could just add leather panels to the wall. Such a neat accent in this home office.

My husband has a leather loveseat that's "his"--but he ALWAYS keeps it covered, top and bottom, with throws!

Oh my!
How I would LOVE that huge, giNORmous leather ottoman! We were going to get this one from Ikea. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70107494 But, we ended up getting something else from them that was machine washable.

But, a gal can dream, can't she?

Being vegetarian, I'm not a fan of real leather, but you can get some really good imitations these days. Great pictures, I always love to see what you pick out :)

I LOVE the white leather bed frame and the leather bench in the bathroom. I'd kill for that bathroom!
