Leather Chair. Thursday , January 18th , 2018 - 16:39:59 PM
As with all leather upholstered furniture you will find executive leather office chairs with different leather characteristics and qualities. The highest quality of leather used for furniture is called full grain leather. The full grain leather is very durable, has a natural look and feel with visible grains and markings from the animals skin. The next grade is a corrected grain leather where some buffing or sanding was necessary to correct its imperfections before use. Leathers of both qualities offer great durability and style although the higher quality leather will be better suited for a high impact environment and many people prefer the natural leather look.
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.
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.
