Emmett and I both have a favorite piece of furniture. It was the very first “nice” things we bought together after moving into our first home. Any guesses? Obviously the post title gives it away… our leather bed. We thought it was expensive at the time and splurged knowing we’d keep it forever, as it was a timeless option. I was working at a design firm and custom designed our leather bed. It is the single most asked about piece of furniture I get, and unfortunately- there is no magic link I can hand out for the exact same product since it was totally custom. After years of answering the “sorry, it’s custom” question, I decided a post was in order! I’m sharing 9 alternative leather beds that are the same cognac / brown colored leather as ours. Click through to see what I came up with…
Over the years, the bedding and surrounding decor has changed, but I’m still really happy with the bed itself!

There are some great options in the mix… I might even go as far to say, I like a couple even better than our bed. Lots of them are also customizable, and they definitely all come in a variety of sizes or different color leathers.
I think a solid piece of furniture, like a bed, constructed of a quality material (like leather) is a very good investment. In our case, it has been a worthy splurge and we still love it just as much as we did the day it was delivered.
It has really become a symbol of home for us and something we were proud to purchase that has stayed with us throughout each renovation. It’s just special! If a piece of furniture is capable of creating those types of feelings, it’s certainly a keeper.
The dogs are also very happy with it. Given the durability of leather, they can’t really mess it up… meaning more forbidden cuddles in bed with the cuties. Haha! I wish we could sleep in tomorrow, but it’s a mad dash to finish the guest bathroom this weekend. Wish us luck! We’ll have plenty of time to catch up on sleep in the pretty leather bed later. Hope you all have an amazing weekend! See you back here on Monday.
