Decorating with leather is by no means a new phenomenon. Leather work is one of the oldest crafts known to mankind and ever since hides became available for domestic use, we’ve been using them in our homes. There’s just something about the look, smell and feel of leather which brings a timeless, opulent feel to any room in your home.
A design classic
Invest in a statement piece of leather furniture, and you know you will still love it for years to come. Leather, more than any other fabric we use in our home, stands the test of time. Like a fine wine, leather furniture simply gets better with age – each new crease or change in colour signifying a history of use. A leather Chesterfield sofa or leather bedstead look stunning no matter how many times we change our interior design scheme around them.

Description from architects:
Alterations carried out to a Federation bungalow to provide a new Family Room, Kitchen and Dining Area. Extensions and building envelop performance were tightly controlled to keep within the limits of the exiting air conditioning system.
Full width aluminium sliding doors were positioned along the back wall incorporating high performance glass. A significant design element is the use of the hanging corner making the building more open and giving a better connection to outside. The verandah was extended to match and large rainwater storage tanks positioned below. Designed by Tom Bombford Studio.
