Can I Mix Different Leathers in One Room?

Good Questions

Q: I am moving into a new apartment on my own and that means... new couch!! Because my studio has great light and I'm afraid of fading, I'm looking for leather. I am really loving the Pottery Barn Chesterfield sofa, but the problem is that I already Craigslist-scored this lovely (and much lighter, totally different style) Rhys side chair from Anthropologie.  I'm all for mixing styles, and I'd love to have them both in the room, but do they clash? Is mixing leathers tacky?
