Glitz, glamour, and shine are hot in home décor today; and designers are embracing the trend by using patent leather to create a bold, original uptown look.
Patent’s high-gloss finish lends itself to statement pieces like this extravagant fire-engine red armchair, but it also conveys a more formal attitude in a more subtle hue like black or gold.
Patent furnishings are clearly inspired by runway style: the elegant details like buttons and clasps that accent patent leather handbags and shoes are mimicked with nailhead and tufted accents on pieces for the home.
Interestingly, the glamour of patent leather masks its surprising durability- surfaces can be wiped clean with ease, making it kid-friendly from kitchen to den and sometimes even weather-proof for use outdoors.
Go fashion forward without worry using patent–it will infuse your home with high style and a glamorous look without sacrificing its livability.
