Josie Wilkerson. Leather Chair. January 18th , 2018.
One of the most overlooked factors or features of leather chairs and recliners is what I have coined "the slick factor". The slick factor is a measurement of how slippery a piece of leather furniture is. I used to be a valet attendant and I parked luxury automobiles by the hundreds every day. There were certain vehicles that when you hopped into the driver seat you literally slid right to the back of the leather seat. It felt like your rear end just fell into the chair. This is a feature not common to many leather automobile seats. It is also a feature that is difficult to find in the current leather chairs and sofas. My only theory as to why it is not present in many leather chairs and recliners is because it is something that is not actively manufactured. I do not believe that the designers consider this factor when upholstering furniture. As a consumer and customer however it is a very important factor. If you are like me and you love this feature it can be frustrating trying to find a sofa or recliner that achieves this and also boasts the other features you want in your chair or sofa.
Leather as chairs is fairly easy to maintain. All you would be needing is to wipe it with a clean damp cloth every once in a while and if you want, could even buy leather conditioners and apply them to your leather seats to give your leather chair a classic appearance that would last for many years. Keep in mind that upholstered chairs that have a shiny or smooth finish will make you constantly slide on your seat. You might also find your clothes wearing out more quickly because of the leather seats, so if youre wearing expensive suits or business outfits, you will need to increase your clothing budget. Price is no longer a big problem nowadays because there are high quality chairs made of leather that are very affordable compared to when the leather chair was first introduced in the market decades ago.
Check to see if your chair is water resistant. If the leather on the chair is shiny, it most likely is protected from liquids. However, some chairs are non-finished, and these should not be cleaned with liquid products. Whether or not it is water-resistant, always use caution when dealing with leather. For non-finished leather chairs, use an art-gum eraser and erase the dirt from the chair. This is essentially the only way to clean this type of chair. You might have to clean the entire chair this way. For water-resistant chairs, use the eraser to clean up minor dirt spots. Wash water-proof chairs with mild soap such as Ivory. Use a bucket of room temperature water and rub the soap together with your hands in it. Make sure it is not hot or cold; it must be room temperature or the soap will not clean properly. Make sure to clean the entire chair thoroughly with a clean, damp cloth that has been soaked in the soapy water. If you dont clean certain parts, the chair may look splotchy. Rinse it off with another damp cloth. Now dry the leather chair with another clean cloth.
Executive leather chairs are slowly becoming the rage in todays offices and they are well-accepted by many office workers. The attractive and long-lasting features of the chairs are the outstanding characteristics that draw the people to them. People in business enterprises have been utilizing them since times immemorial. Today, many people are now enjoying the benefits of working in the confines of their own home, either as a freelancer or connected with a company. There are already existing employment companies that do not allow their workers to travel to the office daily, and will not anymore require the need to sit on a hard chair for the whole working time. People have already understood the idea of why their managers are using these chairs not for their own selfish reasons but for health considerations as they sit in these chairs for the whole duration of work.
Leather comes in different grades at varying prices. You may purchase from office chair sellers or dealers of all kinds of leather furniture. Some specialty stores sell imported products, mostly from Europe, that can cost you a fortune but with styles so unique you can be sure you are the sole owner of such an item in the world. To some people, this is a worthy investment. For those who are more practical and value functionality over aesthetics, local furniture stores sell leather office chairs that are presentable and durable. Whereas genuine leather chairs can cost you up to thousands of dollars, you can also avail of cheaper ones for as low as USD 300 to USD 400.
