Yellow leather chairs
January 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello! I bought these 2 yellow buttery leather chairs to please my tall husband few years ago. There were bought in yellow because I have been told that it is the only color that won't change on a very bright and sunny room. Now I am moving and want to change my decor. How can I use them in my new decor? White leather coach maybe? Please help!

May be too light with white leather? Others will be chiming in!!! :)

1. How do you think they don't fit now? What's wrong? (You and I may see different things; I don't know what parts of your images are important to keep.)
2. What's that grey block behind the steel floor lamp?
3. If the red matters, can you use throw cushions on the chairs for a while until you get a more clear idea of what you want?

1- I am tired of the brown leather sofa. Nothing of that decor is staying. Actually, I am tired of brown.
2- the grey block is a one of concrete walls, there is actually 3 in the place.
3- The red is going too. I want to match the yellow chairs with a new sofa. Not sure of the style of the chairs, contemporary? Leather sofa or fabric ? Maybe a charcoal?

I think I would do a fabric sofa instead of leather to mix up the textures. How about bringing in a pattern? This sofa would look great with your chairs.

Grey or Navy for your sofa would look great with your yellow chairs. I think a fabric sofa would be better than leather.

Love the ideas that are being sent in. We actually dyed a leather chair with leather dye. You can order it online. You could do a deep gray if you don't want to keep them yellow. You could also rub brown into it and wipe it off which would warm the look without making them brown. I am all for reuse and repurpose and leather chairs aren't cheap! :)

Your chairs would look nice with a grey sofa. Light , medium or charcoal grey in color. Yellow and grey are great colors used together.

I quadruple the charcoal sofa suggestions. It's a predictable color scheme, but oh-so-delicious.
