Very dark perhaps with a bit of brass. Very unusual with the colour scheme but it works.

We love the low lying seating with the off-black upholstery faux leather.

We’ve heard of upholstering chairs with different fabrics on different panels and having contrasting items standing out in otherwise relatively monochromatic schemes but we’d never taken the jump to mis-matched dining chairs. Obvious when you think about it! You could probably be even more adventurous with colour and style than the image.

KOTHEA are one of the UK’s leading Faux Leather suppliers to the Interior Design and Architectural sector. Our products in this sphere have high peformance, commerical and residential characteristics – fantastic durability and adherence to appropriate fire retardancy standards.

We have several faux leather collections – they are aimed specifically for upholstery but are often also used on walls, doors, sometimes for curtains and cocktail bar fronts and stools.

Most of the wide range of colours we stock are available in several different finishes. The finishes range from a ‘flat’ vinyl to a heavily, but naturally, textured leather finish. Inbetween these extremes there are leather textures with differing degrees of depths of textures.

The ‘feel’ of the collections vary. Some are very like leather to the touch, whilst others are more vinyl. Typicallymore vinyl-type finishes have highly superior cleaning and light fastness properties.

Please note that these faux leathers are specifically targetted towards interiors. They are not thin, low-grade fashion faux leather.

We also have several ranges of faux animal skins, mimicing skins such as crocodile and ostrich. These are niche products and are only available by the roll.

Chic, shabby chic or a bit of a mess?

Leather upholstery is limited by the size of the hide. Probably not that much of an issue on smaller sofas.

Faux leather can have very high abrasion resistance and both can be treated for fire resistance.

Care and maintenance is easier with faux leather. Repairs and colour matching are easier with faux leather, which is important if you under-order/under-specify or just need to buy some more if the project scope increases.
