Leather Flooring

Leather is one of those materials that "fits" steampunk very well -- it has vibes of the Victorian American West, is a softer counterpart to too much metal, yet is tough enough to be used by the gentleman explorer. Outside of upholstery or accessories, however, it's hard to incorporate into your home -- until now!


Jaimie left a comment about these leather floor mats from Ting made from recycled belts, and I'm loving how they look.


There are some ideas on how to make your own, here.

I love this look! Who knew belts would make such a gorgous flooring.

I love this. I must find a way to replicate it and a small room to redo.
