If you want your chair to last for many, many years consider buying chairs made of high quality leather and made by well-known manufacturers because they would truly provide you many years of great service. High quality chairs made of leather usually are upholstered in a single piece of leather hide, and has the best look. Sometimes, to reduce the costs of producing their chairs, most chair producers or manufacturers, use a good quality vinyl to upholster the back part of the product so choose carefully and look closely at the leather chairs to see whether they are purely made of leather of not.
Something that people dont understand about leather chairs is that they need to be taken care of on a regular basis, unlike wooden chairs. These treatments are simple, and fairly quick, but dont let that fact stray you from doing them. First and foremost, touch your chair. Does is feel soft? It should, and your fingers should slide easily along with it. If it doesnt, it is time to treat it. Now check your chairs instruction manual. Many high end brands of chairs have very specified instructions on how to care for their chairs such as a leather armchair, leather office chair, or leather dining chairs. Make sure to keep dust off the chair. This is important, as dust carries many oily bacteria that can damage leather chairs. Dust your chair once a day or at least once a week if possible.
Next time you are in your favorite leather furniture store, pay attention to the slickness factor of the pieces you are trying out. Also, in order to accurately test this feature of the chair, you must be wearing clothing that promotes the slick factor the best. If you are wearing any kind of corduroy clothing, or any other kind of clothing that is thick or bunchy, you will not slide as much. Try to wear tight fitting clothing like cotton shirts. Even regular denim jeans tend to promote sliding quite well. Another great test is to wear shorts because you can test the slickness factor on human skin. Assuming you are not sweaty at the time, your dry skin should also slide across the leather surface very nicely. If youre the kind of person who enjoys sinking into a puffy leather chair, you may also appreciate the feeling of sliding into the comfort zone of a leather chair or recliner.
The frame construction should be a point of emphasis on any chair you consider for your house since this is the skeleton that supports all the material and coverings of the chair as well as your weight when you sit down. Look for wood frames that are screwed or bolted together. A frame that is nailed together is likely to loose strength over time and can start to wiggle and creak which isnt what you want in a great chair. Metal frames should have excellent welds...these will be clean and smooth to the touch with no pitting or rough spots. If you are feel that the welds are rough or messy it would be a good idea to consider a different manufacturer as it is very difficult to find someone to repair welds on a metal chair frame later on.
Leather Characteristics and Qualities. Not all executive leather chairs are created equal. The same way that leather shoes and bags vary in quality, leather chairs use varying leather grades and types. "Full-grain leather" is the highest leather grade available for furniture and other leather products. It is durable and is characterized by a natural look with visible and unique grains and markings from animal skin. "Corrected grain leather," on the other hand, is a grade lower than full grain leather. This leather grade is made ready by buffing or sanding, getting rid of imperfection. It is highly durable and stylish as well. High quality leather is suitable in a high-impact environment. It is up to the buyer which look he prefers better.
