Vintage Leather Sofas

One of life's great pleasures has to be settling down into a lovely squishy, warm, aged vintage leather sofa and putting your feet up in front of a fire. There’s just something special about vintage leather sofas and chairs that invoke a true sense of nostalgia. Whether it’s the rustic, a little tattered look, or the musty leather smell, we just all love a good ole leather sofa.

Not to mention they’re maybe one of the most stylish and elegant pieces of furniture out there. A proper vintage leather sofa adds class and sophistication to any space. There really is no interior where say, a Scandinavian vintage leather sofa, with all of its minimal elegance, wouldn’t fit. Oh, and did we mention that they’re also super easy to clean?

Take a peek at the vintage, contemporary, and classic designs we have in our collection. Whether you’re looking to make a statement with an oversized vintage leather sofa in a bright, bolshy blue, or you’d prefer to snuggle up in a smaller two-seater tan piece—you’ll find the leather sofa of your dreams in our range.

Antique leather sofas
An antique leather sofa is so much more than a simple piece of furniture. It’s a style statement, a comfort piece and a future heirloom all in one.

Just like a fine wine, an excellent vintage leather sofa improves with age. We love a slightly battered, well-loved, soft to the touch leather sofa that introduces a sense of reminiscence and familiarity. Like pulling on your favourite pair of jeans or a hand-me-down cashmere jumper, a leather sofa evokes that sweet sense of nostalgia everytime you settle down on it. Buying a pre-loved piece gives you all of this and then some by saving you money and being better for the planet. Really it’s a no brainer.

An old antique leather sofa, full of life experience but still intact is a great option for families with children and pets because it can be easily wiped clean. While spills and stains look ugly on a brand-new sofa, they can actually blend into the sheen of an older piece, adding extra character with each coffee stain—huge bonus. Pro tip—when looking for a piece, just make sure the leather hasn’t cracked yet.

Choosing a vintage leather sofa
Here at Vinterior, we have vintage leather sofas in so many styles, colours, and sizes. We have pieces from some of the most iconic and collectable designers from cities and countries all around the world. Whatever your style, you’ll be able find your dream vintage leather sofa from our extensive range.

For a classic look, avoid sofas with arms that curve out too much. This can also save you much-needed space. Instead, opt for arms that are straight and more upright, curving at the top. The feet should ideally be solid and low to the ground without contrasting too heavily with the leather.

A vintage leather sofa is a statement piece, so don’t be shy when choosing a colour. Always go for a hue that will complement your other interiors and furnishings. One of our most popular options is the quintessential caramel tan, famous for brightening up any glum and gloomy room. If you want that clean, minimal all white look, a white leather sofa is a particularly good choice because of how easy it is to clean. Call us old fashioned, but the classic chocolate-brown, red, and black leather sofas are some of our favourites, deep shades offering that extra dramatic, statement look.

At Vinterior some of our favourite designs are Scandinavian leather sofas. Famed for their minimal, elegant designs, Scandinavian leather sofas are some of the best leather sofas around. Often coming in cool blacks, classic creams, tans and warm browns, mid century modern Scandinavian leather sofas are timeless and absolutely sure to add suave, style and statement to your interior space.

Styling your vintage leather sofa

Once you’ve chosen your dream vintage or antique leather sofa, it’s time for the best bit—picking all of those lovely accessories and complementary furniture pieces to really accentuate your new leather lovely.

Pairing your new sofa with a hand-woven rug in a different but complementary colour can really make your new piece pop. Obviously you’ll also need flattering lighting. Why not opt for a stylish vintage floor lamp or a couple of characterful vintage table lamps to bring your room to live with that perfect mood lighting. Finally, some vibrant wall art can add that final touch of personality, creating the perfect living space for you to squish down in your gorgeous new leather sofa.

Pro tip—avoid furnishing a room with a complete leather suite. This is often a little too heavy and will detract from the stylishness of your new piece. Instead, invest in a single high-quality leather piece that suits the proportions of the room.
