A showcase of chic and eminently desirable leather products, accessories and furniture.
With leather enjoying a huge renaissance across the fashion and interior design spectrum, including its use for architectural elements such as walls and floors, the material's popularity could be taken as a backlash against computers and technology.
The pliable, resilient material and its tactile quality and natural patina means that the older leather gets, the better it looks and feels, moulded by the use of its owner.
The exhibition featured a wall installation in collaboration with Spinneybeck Leather, highlighting their leather palate of over 600 colours. Trenchant-Browne supported the exhibition with the launch of its revolutionary leather printing process, in collaboration with designers including Bill Amberg and Jeffery West.
