Leather rugs add texture and visual interest to a room. Leather has ridges and can form a natural pattern over the years. It will look like part of the room without looking too bland or over-familiar. Unshaved leather softens your room while adding character. Solid brown, beige or black leather rugs are a masculine addition to any study or “man-cave”. They are equally at home with shelves of hardcover books or sports memorabilia. More colorful patchwork or confetti leather rugs add personality to a young adult’s bedroom or a couple’s den.Use leather area rugs to complement leather furniture in a den or living room. Be sure to place the rug where it will get low to moderate foot traffic, but close a leather sofa or chair to make it seem like a matched (or slightly mismatched) set.
