There are a lot of leather sofas out there. And a lot of them, unfortunately, are really, really ugly. Since finding a good-looking leather sofa in a modern style can be such a daunting task, we decided to round up a few of the best ones in one place.

The shot up top, spotted on Finnish blog Lily, was the first slide in our most recent IKEA quiz, and everyone was immediately like, WHERE CAN I FIND THAT SOFA. It's actually what inspired this post.

That sofa looks like a vintage design by Børge Mogensen — here's a very similar one for $8,318.87 from 1st Dibs. You can find more by doing a search for the designer's work, although we'll warn you — they're definitely not cheap.

Here's another, slightly more rustic design: the Arne Norell Two-Seat Sofa Model Kontiki, $6,354.69 from 1st Dibs.

Arne Norell "Ilona" Three-Seat Sofa, $5,000 from 1st Dibs.

If you like the vintage sofas pictured above you can also search 1st Dibs for similar styles, which start at around $2,000. Of course there are also plenty of lovely leather sofas you can buy new, but I'm partial to the worn-in, vintage look.
