A leather what?

Yep, that's a toilet seat/lid.

Prince Charles is reported to have his own white-leather wrapped toilet seat which he received as a Christmas gift several years ago.  His personal butler confirmed that the Prince always has his leather-clad seat accompany him on travels.

EcoDomo introduces  the Royal Throne Collection of leather toilet seats, lids and rugs.  This continues the rollout of ecological, stylish and unique sustainable architectural details which EcoDomo has pioneered in the sustainable finishes industry.  The company admits that leather toilet seats are not for the shy. They come in racy colors or classic tones. They’re warm and really quite beautiful. Think of them as the ultimate Le Corbusier leather chair to rest and ponder in a quiet...uh.. personal environment.
The leather seats are maintained with anti-bacterial natural Clorox (whatever that means). Polishing the seat with leather wipes will maintain the finish. www.ecodomo.com

Embrace Me!

FAVN™, the Danish translation for embrace, is designed with great attention to detail and consist of only a few elements. "I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic, that's why we named it FAVN, says Jaime HayĆ³n. It is an evolution of Fritz Hansen's design language that brings together the qualities of Spanish and Danish design. The work of the artist-designer is characterized by his respect for color, craftsmanship and techniques.
The large rounded shell rests on the small, but elegant legs while the seat and back together with the decorative cushions combined with the use of three textures, makes up the strong visual layers. As the sofa has no edges – it is round and soft. "I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell, being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside. Protective and warm." http://www.fritzhansen.com/en/favn#JH3_13_MC100_FAV008_LC100_B100
