Here is a completely novel idea for a wall covering to decorate your home with: Leather! Yes you read right, leather! But wait, leather wall coverings might not be all that new a concept! Padded leather panelling and animal skin wall hangings have been around for centuries. But that’s not what I’m talking about here! I’m talking about leather wall cladding that is fitted like ceramic tiling!
Leather is an all natural product of the meat industry, so rather than becoming car seats and shoes, why not adorn your walls. If the leather tiles are prepared correctly, they can be removed and reused at anytime which makes them recyclable. Because of their make-up, leather tiling is great for both the acoustics of a room and for soundproofing! And last but not least, believe it or not, leather tiling is self regulating as far as temperature is concerned. In the cold of winter it holds in the heat, in the heat of summer, it keeps the room cool!
This, obviously, is a very high end product because, let’s be honest, leather is not cheap and covering your wall with it is going to cost you! But consider the benefits! And just look at the amazing ideas that you can apply to this concept!
If you are looking for something a bit more funky and contemporary then multicoloured leather tiles are a fantastic idea! These tiles can come in a range of colours, textures and finishes from, neaon, to primary to metallic. This concept would make an amazing addition to a contemporary or eclectic home.
