Elegant and enduring.  Classic and contemporary. 
Leather for floors and walls has been used for centuries in Europe and Asia, and now designers are embracing the natural warmth, rich colors and sensuous fragrance of leather and placing it in everything from private jets to exclusive dance clubs. 
In the home, leather flooring makes an elegant statement in libraries, media rooms and – especially – bedrooms.  You’ve simply never walked on anything as soothing as a leather floor.  Leather tiles have a seductive aroma and unique softness to the touch.  They are also resilient, sound proof and insulating. 
Tiles range in size from 4 to 24-inch squares.  Leather flooring can also be purchased in rolls 54 inches by 100 feet.  While manufacturers recommend professional installation, tiles can be put down by anyone handy and attentive to detail.  In fact, leather tiles are easily installed, similar to cork floor tiles, and maintained as you would a wood floor; simply vacuum, damp mop as needed and use a carnauba-based liquid wax 3 to 4 times a year.  (Wall tiles, of course, don't need wax once they have been installed.)  Spills should be wiped up immediately with damp (not wet) mop or cloth.
Leather for floors and walls comes in myriad warm colors, including natural, burgundy chestnut, emerald, mahogany and ebony.  Leather for floors and walls can be purchased in a variety of embossed patterns as well.  Hand painting and computerized graphic processing can further customize design patterns and color. 
Because leather is a natural product, individual tiles will have slight variations in color tones and texture due to the differing levels of oil in the leather and the natural grain of the leather fibers. These elements give the leather floor its character! 
Texture also adds to a unique decorating statement, as does layout, which ranges from standard to woven and brick patterns.  Special shapes and sizes can be custom-ordered for unique looks for your business or home.  Metal tiles and accents are also available.
Committed to the environment?  There are leather tiles made from recycled materials using minimal energy in the production process. They boast the look, feel and fragrance of leather with enhanced resistance to humidity and abrasion.  (Note that manufacturers advise against using the tiles in high moisture and humidity areas such as kitchens and bathrooms or below-grade such as a basement.)
Like wood, leather is a natural, warm and renewable material.   Like a good wine, it improves with age, taking on the character of its surroundings and developing a rich, increasingly luxurious patina.
