Garden green Edelman leather doors shine with smart nailhead trim by designer Miles Redd

When I'm looking for something soft and spectacular for a client project or if I'm in the market for a little design indulgence, I head over to Edelman leather, the destination for couture leather. Where else can you find nearly a dozen difference colorways of light blue, each one more beautiful than the next? The showroom walls are covered with a rainbow of buttery swatches-delicious leather samples waiting to find their way on lucky chairs, ottomans, sofas and walls. Some of my favorite leather touched interiors include...
Designer Kim Coleman used Edelman blue leather on an antique library chair which echos the pretty blue Long Island wall mural.
Joe Nahem covers drifwood ottomans in decadent Edelman blue Cavalini cowhide.
Just a few of the blue leather swatches I came home with for a current project-the colors are simply beautiful!

Usually I can choose a favorite, but you have so many beautiful images here. Nothing more beautiful than top-of-the-line leather.
Thank you for sharing, and have a great Monday.

I want a tufted leather couch in a light apple green for the den. I saw an amazing one, but the price was just not right at all, and neither was the size. Someday!
