Patent Leather Covers Furnishings

According to Candace Olsen, patent leather is now making a strong push into upholstery.

"Patent leather is classy," says Candice Olson, who has fine-tuned the finish on selections for Norwalk Furniture. "I love it for seating because of its rich shine and totally unexpected, modern appeal." Olson is known for the ultra sophisticated and sexy interiors she creates on "Divine Design with Candice Olson" on HGTV. Her signature look is the use of glamorous, luminescent fabrics, which extends to patent leather.

"What makes this fabric unique is that it has the look of your grandmother's patent leather but, it feels like soft velvet or a micro-suede because of modern technology," says Olson. "It doesn't have that stiff, uncomfortable feel."

I received for Christmas from Michael, two pairs of boots for the price of one and both were trimmed in patent leather. Mike is on the cutting edge with Candace Olsen.
