Leather Chair / April 25, 2018 / Kelli Cobb.
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 people don't 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 don't 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 doesn't, it is time to treat it. Now check your chair's 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.
In addition to their many outstanding features, cleaning and maintenance of leather chairs is done with ease. Spills and stains are cleaned by wiping them with wet cloth and sometimes with soap and water for stubborn stains. Move the chairs to an area where they are not exposed to the sun's heat and sources of high heat. Owning an authentic executive leather chair can be a pride and joy of anyone, but for those who cannot really afford one, there are reproductions of the original furniture that are easily affordable. However, these are not as long-lasting as the chairs made of pure leather because they are made of alternative materials that can be easily damaged and torn. The disparity can be distinguished by merely looking at the grains and visible blemishes on the leather.
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.
