Last week when I opened my September Elle Decor magazine I was convinced that Hermes was suddenly selling furniture but clearly, upon searching all over their website, NO.
This ad, located on the very back of the magazine is clearly just lifestyle.
But let that not diminish the point of my point.
Which is when one of the most prestigious leather manufacturers in the world, chose the colour for a chaise lounge in their ads, chose a cognac shade.
Which is one of the three best colours. If we are talking about timeless colours.
Then inside the same magazine, here’s Fendi’s leather sofa. In a lighter, camel, toffee shade. Which is the second best colour. Sorry they are not the best quality, I had to scan them both.
The third is white/cream.
If you can wear hot pink and carry a leather bag in a cognac shade, maybe we can do the same with our living room sofa?
Black leather is okay in small doses like a chair. Most black sofas or sectionals are simply too heavy and masculine in general.
Although I must admit I did love that the brown trend had most men buying espresso brown sofa’s instead of black.
Now that Fall is officially here, are you getting inspired to re-decorate?
