There’s nothing quite like a lovingly-worn vintage Chesterfield sofa, with its deep creases and softly patinaed patches, but every Chesterfield has to start somewhere. If you are on the hunt for “just so” leather living room furniture then look no further than the reproduction of the true classic Chesterfield leather sofa by Timothy Oulton.
With its deep tufting, perky rolled arms and no less than 1,500 hand-hammered brass studs and count them, 85 buttons, this leather sofa is begging to go home with you. Just imagine sinking back into its deep set cushions, already supple and distressed, to give it that lived in look and feel you would spend years of lounging on it to accomplish.
This Chesterfield will give your other livingroom furniture the classy companion it’s been pining for. Your search is over— this is the “just so” sofa you’ve been looking for all along.

Not all ladies love pink, especially in our decor. I was on the fence about it until I saw these great shots of the absolutely splendid pink apartment Betsey Johnson designed (is there anything this woman can’t do?) A little pink goes a long way, but a lot of pink goes on for miles! I got curious to see what pink pieces we have on StylePath, so here is a living room sofa that's bold and pink, it would surely get the nod from Ms. Johnson herself.

A comfortable chair or sofa is made so much better when accompanied by an ottoman. Ottomans are super versatile and can act as a foot rest, coffee table, storage container or style statement. With so much going for it, you won’t be lost trying to find the perfect ottoman for your home. Use one in the living room in front of the sofa, place one at the foot of the bed to put on shoes, or add one in front of a comfy chair for a reading corner.
Besides all of their terrific uses, ottomans come in every style, color and size and shape you can imagine such as a leather ottoman, storage ottoman, wood ottoman and round ottoman. StylePath has over 600 ottomans to choose from, but don’t worry we’ll narrow down those choices and give you just what you’re looking for. Take a look at a few of our favorites, they may just be what you are looking for.
The Button Ottoman from Bellacore is stylishly modern in white leather and will accompany other leather living room furniture nicely.

Here's a bit of design advice for all you color lovers out there. If you have a thing for color (the brighter the better, you say?) then choose your bigger upholstered pieces (sofas, lounge chairs, settees and living room chairs) in neutrals of beige, taupe, ivory, white, gray and black. Pairing big neutral pieces with favorite or trending colors has become a popular practice as we look to design in more budget conscience ways.
With a neutral canvas in place, you can go wild with a colorful palette you love for accessories, art, accent pieces and walls. If you like things to be fresh and exciting, a neutral base allows you to change things up according to seasonal trends or on a whim. You’ll never get bored with your décor again.
Design Tip: Nothing is bland about neutral tones when you know how to use them to their best advantage. If you tend to like cooler colors such as blue, green and violet then go with a white that has a cool bluish undertone. If you like warmer colors like red, orange and yellow then choose a white with a warmer yellow undertone.
