The Dekalb Collection

Dekalb Living Room Collection

When you choose leather furniture, you instantly inject an overall feeling of easy elegance into a room. Whether you’re furnishing a living room, family room, rec room or home office, the Dekalb Living Room Collection from us at west elm is a pleasing choice. We understand that surrounding yourself in luxury and comfort is often the goal, and the Dekalb pieces make this an easy process.


Leather has the distinct ability to look both rich and supple, and leather furniture easily makes any living area feel upscale and elegant. Our Dekalb pieces boast only the highest quality materials as well as master craftsmanship. The top-grain aniline leather goes through a hand oil-rubbing process that ensures the finest texture and richness. Aniline leather is known for its natural aging, which only adds to the overall beauty of these pieces. You can expect the leather surface to scuff gently in time but have no worries as these scuffs will become part of the overall vintage patina that develops with age and use. Whether you place your Dekalb pieces in a formal living room or in a game room surrounded by media consoles and cabinets, these pieces will be right at home.


If you have a preference for your leather color, you are in luck. We offer several options in color so you can create precisely the furniture grouping you envision. From molasses to saddle to cognac, these rich, brown tones are just about perfect when you want a traditional appearance. Alternatively, you could also opt for leather in our Aegean or verdant colors to spice up your seating area a bit. Whatever your color preference, you can be sure that your sofa and chairs will fit easily in with your other room decor. Imagine a rich leather hue as it blends appealingly with other accents such as natural fiber rugs and even custom shades and blinds.


The lines and shapes of the Dekalb furniture collection are infinitely ageless. With substantial arms and full lumbar support, these sofas will be the spot where you choose to unwind after a hard day. Beautiful wood legs are finished in a warm acorn color, adding a delightful architectural appeal to the pieces. Mixing and matching a sofa, love seat or sectional with other wood furnishings promises to be a breeze. Imagine adding side tables and console tables for a finished ensemble.


When you want to have ample seating for the whole gang, a Dekalb sectional is the obvious answer. The build-your-own modular pieces make it easy to mix and match to create precisely the unit that will fit your needs. You could opt for a two-piece combination that blends sofa and chaise into one distinctive unit. With options for left or right arm chaise and sofa, this piece will fit effortlessly into your space. Additionally, you can expand the seating possibilities by adding a chair as well. From here, just add sconces and decorative lighting to finish your seating area beautifully.


You’re sure to be pleased with the easy care and maintenance of the Dekalb Living Room Collection also. Designed to fit into your lifestyle, you can just plump up the seat and back cushions periodically to make sure the leather wears evenly. We also recommend dusting the surfaces with a dry cloth, or you can vacuum with an upholstery attachment. Don’t use a wet cloth to remove any oil-based stains. Instead, remove as much staining as possible with a dry cloth. You can expect the spot to fade into the leather in time. Choose a spot for your furniture that’s out of direct sun to prevent premature fading and cracking. With minimal maintenance, your furniture should stay beautiful for years.
