Leather looks flatter floors and more

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Leather is charging into home decor, going beyond couches, chairs and table tops.

It’s upholstering walls and covering floors, and manufactured materials made from recycled leather are broadening the design possibilities even further.

Imagine a door covered in faux crocodile, a bathroom vanity with a cowhide insert or a closet with leather-wrapped shelves.

Real leather, an option that until now has been prohibitively pricey for most consumers, is now more affordable because manufacturers are developing genuine-leather panels that reduce the cost of leather walls and floors by making them easier and cheaper to install.

See Saturday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s HomeStyle for details.
