Leather is considered by many to be one of the most desirable materials for a chair. A leather chair is not only beautiful, but also very comfortable to sit on. Although genuine leather chairs are usually more expensive than chairs made from most other materials, they can definitely be worth the added cost. If you are currently shopping for a leather living room chair, here are some tips that will help you pick one that is perfect for you.
The size of the back of the chair is one of the most important features. For an executive chair to be truly comfortable, the top of the back of the chair should be no lower than the middle of the back of the person’s head who will be using the seat. In a truly comfortable office chair, a person should be able to lean back and have their head rest against the back of the chair or a headrest. Many lower quality chairs have backs that extend up almost to the back of a person’s head, but not quite. If a person leans back in one of these chairs, their head hangs over the back and it is quite uncomfortable.
Where you purchase the chairs from will also determine the price you will pay. If you purchase from big box retailers you will typically be able to get a favorable price, however you will also be sacrificing quality for price. With specialty stores and home furniture dealerships you can expect to pay more than you would at a big brand store, however they will also carry much higher quality product that will last for years to come. Purchasing online is another convenient option which allows you to pick out exactly what you want from the comfort of your own home. Online pricing is generally very competitive allowing for cheaper pricing than you would find in specialty stores and products usually ship relatively quickly. Many internet retailers will also offer a volume discount when multiple chairs are purchased.
Purchase a Chair That is Built to Last - The easiest way to ensure that a chair will be designed to withstand years of use is to purchase a chair that is built to last. This is simple, if you are looking for a bargain chair at your nearest Staples or Office Depot, perhaps you will get a great price but in turn you will also be receiving a chair that is made of bargain components. In other words, it will not last you as long as you might expect and you will most likely need to purchase another new chair a year or two down the line. It actually makes more sense in the long run to spend more on a chair that will last ten years then to have to continuously purchase new chairs every year, and is less of a hassle.
When you look for any chair with moving parts, go to a showroom and try it out first. Does the mechanism move smoothly, without any grinding or bumps? How difficult is it to move? Be sure to sit in the chair the way you will at home. Check the comfort, the level of the headrest, and move the footrest and any other moveable parts. Since moving parts get more wear than the rest of the chair, you want to be sure they’ll hold up to use.
