A leather lounge is a great investment worth making, it can last you for years to come and still be in great condition. The great thing is, that leather is a timeless classic that will never go out of style. Not only does it look great, but it is a comfortable, breathable material which you will benefit from in all seasons.

But in addition to comfort, and keeping the piece of furniture clean, you should also take the aesthetic appearance into account. One of the most important features of consideration, aesthetically speaking, of course, is colour.  It is actually common practice to build your living room décor around your lounge. Brescia Furniture stocks a wide range of options in our leather lounge stores. We have armchairs, love seats, three-seaters, L-shaped couches, and even lounge beds, with many leather lounge colours to choose from in each category. Sometimes that much variety can be daunting, so we’d like to give you a few ideas on how to choose the right hue for you.

How to Pick Your Lounge’s Colour

When it comes to lounges, it isn’t as simple as picking your favourite colour. After all, what works for your clothes and shoes might not necessarily work as a living room centrepiece! Here are some considerations for the major lounge colour categories:


Many people like the classic look of a white lounge, but white can be tricky if you have small children, pets, or frequent house guests. Dirt, stains, and any other markings from usage are more noticeable on white furniture. However, this is no issue if it’s easy for you to keep things tidy around the lounge area. The Caviar, the Dolphin, and the Dream are just a few of the white lounges offered at Brescia.

Black or Brown

Black and brown are easy go-to colours, but they tend to produce a corporate feel, so you might want to leave them for the boardroom or home office. Blacks and browns may give your room a serious, stately appearance. On the other hand, that may be what you are looking for in your home, plus they hide mess and wear. The Ambassador or the Zabina are examples of dark colored couches at Brescia. It can work extremely well in the living room with the right furniture.


Another option is to pick a neutral colour that matches any wall but also goes well with a variety of living room décor. Pale greys, mild beiges, and light browns are versatile enough to work with anything. Brescia offers the Heni as a beautiful tan lounge. For a pop, you can even accent a neutral lounge with a brightly coloured floor rug.

Other Colours

Alternatively, you could pick a lounge that matches the colour of your wall.  It’s a bold statement, and if your living area is small, this can create an illusion of expansion. It brings the room together as a cohesive unit. If you pick a solid colour for the couch, it can weather several wall changes. For example, a navy blue lounge will work with differing wall shades, from deep royals to azure and even powder blue, like the Florence lounge at Brescia.

Aside from the wall, you also need to think about the floor. Pick a lounge colour that pleasantly contrasts your tile, carpet, or wood panels. If you have a concrete floor, it won’t matter much but if you have a brightly polished surface, then colour makes all the difference. Still feeling a little lost?
