If you have a room filled with various shades of white and other neutral tones, brining in a cognac leather chair will help add contrast to the room.

The cognac color is considered a more neutral color, but the orange and brown undertones make this chair feel warm. So, this color will compliment and neutral space without taking over the room.

Take a look at this room, the accent chairs compliment the wood beams on the ceilings, the pendant lighting above the kitchen island and the wood decor displayed on the wall.
