Leather is a timeless material that works well in both modern and classic living rooms. It is one of the most expensive materials, but also one of the most durable. There are several shades to choose from. The downside is that it does not absorb sweat, which can make sitting on it in the summer uncomfortable. It also needs to be impregnated several times a year so that it does not lose its beauty over the years.
