The Best Throw Pillows for a Leather Couch: 3 Perfect Combos

Have you ever wondered how to style leather furniture? Leather couches are very popular (particularly brown leather couches), but it can sometimes feel challenging to decorate with them.

I speak from experience. I love our leather couch but when we first brought it home, it felt kind of heavy in our living room. Over the years, and through trial and error, I’ve learned to make the most of this hardworking furniture piece.

So what’s the best way to decorate a leather couch? With the perfect throw pillows! It’s easy to add your own personal style statement to the ubiquitous leather sofa.

In this post, I’ve rounded up the best throw pillows for a leather sofa in three different styles: traditional, boho, and modern farmhouse.

The Traditional Throw Pillow Set

If you love the traditional look, this throw pillow combination is perfect for your leather sofa. The blues positively pop off the rich brown leather and the reds tie in the warm undertones of the sofa. The mix of patterns keeps this look fresh, not frumpy.

The Boho Throw Pillow Set

So what if your taste skews a bit more bohemian? Try these three pillows casually tossed over a relaxed sleeper sofa in a caramel leather (the boho team color, right?). The textures keep things casual while the bold colors add excitement.

The Modern Farmhouse Throw Pillow Set

Are Chip and Joanna your style gurus? Then this set of modern farmhouse throw pillows will be perfect for your leather sofa. The clean, crisp stripes and linen offer the perfect counterpoint to the rustic leather, while the pretty scripted word art on the third pillow softens the overall look.
