Leather Chair / April 25, 2018 / Jamie Hampton
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.
If you have a busy family and pets you know how difficult it is to keep things clean in your house without chasing your kids around with a vacuum and a wash cloth. One nice feature that is inherent with leather is it's resistant to spills and messes. If you kids or husband spill their snack or drink on a fabric couch it is a race to get a cloth or towel and you hope you can clean it up. Even a spill treated fabric will suffer some damage and wear from this type of spill. Leather on the other hand will be easy to clean, just wipe up the juice or crumbs and it's like nothing ever happened.
