Leather Chair. Thursday , January 18th , 2018 - 16:32:33 PM
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.
The only advice I can offer you in your hunt for slippery leather chairs and sofas is that that harder upholstery tends to have a higher percentage of slippery surfaces. The sofas with puffy cushions tend to not slide as much as the padding engulfs your body parts. The tighter and harder style chair is your best chance of slippery greatness. Finally it should be pointed out that not all slippery chairs get the click factor right. In some instances the slipperiness will be so severe that upon reclining, instead of your rear end sliding into the comfort pocket, you will continue to slide all the way off the chair until your head is where your bottom should be. Make sure to test your sofa or chair before purchasing. These factors can only known if you personally sit in them. It is very subjective. So be weary before you purchase furniture online before trying it out in person, even if it is a trusted brand you have had good results with in the past.
Another thing that you also need to keep in mind about black leather chairs and any other dark colored leather chair is that too much exposure to the sunlight can cause the furniture to fade. This will depreciate the value of the furniture and cause it to not look as nice as it did when you first bought it. The leather of the sofa will also become dry from being exposed to the sun too much, and this can also cause cracking to occur a lot quicker. Keep your leather furniture away from areas where temperatures are hot, such as fire places, and windows where the sun shines directly through. One alternative is to have darker curtains in the room where you will have your leather furniture, to keep the sun from even shining through the curtains onto the black leather couches. Radiators would also be something that you will need to keep your furniture away from as well. Something that might not come across your mind that you should consider as well, is watching your pockets, or you clothing. Do not sit on your leather furniture with keys in your back pockets or other objects that are sharp that can cause holes or punctures in your leather furniture. You really dont want to experience any kind of scuff marks or scratches on your furniture. Do not let your children play around your leather furniture with pens, markers or any other sharp edged toys.
