I love leather. I love the way it smells, the way it ages, the way it shifts in color, and how rich it looks on just about anything. Needless to say, I am also not a vegetarian! I love when leather is used in such a simplistic and utilitarian way in furniture—clasping things together, hinging, and covering, leather is such a versatile material choice. The master of leather and luxury, Louis Vuitton, created this gorgeous folding leather desk for their Objets Nomades furniture series by designer Christian Liaigre and Serena & Lily created a beautiful bookshelf with adjustable book ends and leather and iron detailing.
