Leather Chair / April 25, 2018 / Kelli Cobb
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 you're 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.
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. Leather retains its physical characteristics even after years of use. To preserve its quality better, your executive leather chair needs regular maintenance. A special cleaner or conditioner is usually needed. Also, it helps to keep leather away from radiators and direct sunlight.
