I have seen vinyl that looks like Leather.
Mannington carries it.

A real leather floor sounds like upkeep city.

I saw an office once that had leather around the outsides edges of the room only for about 6". It coped up onto the wall, and acted as the baseboard also. The top edge was rolled back under, giving the top edge a tailored appearance. The rest of the flooring in this particular office was some sort of quarried material. It looked nice in that setting, but it wasn't something I ever thought I'd do.

Ok Here Is Where I Seen It

Was laid up in a hotel watching some channel and they were showing this multimillionaire home in vegas. This house was so awesome it had a electronics system that controlled the whole house. The owner could pull out his cell phone call the house change the temp turn on lights even turn on whirlpool outside and change the temp. In his office they said it was leather floors. I was like wow i have never seen those before. So i thought i would post and ask you guys. :Thumbs: Oh i forgot it also had state of the art security so he could view cameras of his house from where ever he was at. :rolleyes:
