Leather Chair / April 29, 2018 / Kelli Cobb
Of course, leather does vary in quality from piece to piece so you need to be aware of its grade when you buy your chair. The best quality is made of full grain leather which is extremely durable and high class. It also has a natural look that other leather grades simply cannot achieve. It has that natural look with unique grains that differ from item to item. The second grade leather is called corrected grain leather and it is a bit cheaper to buy. This is made by removing imperfections by buffing and sanding and the end result is quite elegant and stylish. Of course this material is one that will last you for many years being extremely durable, so you can simply not go wrong, regardless of whether you buy the best quality of the second best quality leather chair for your business or home office.
Another type of these chairs that many people love is one made from buckskin leather. This is made from 100% deer skin which is first treated then soaked in a solution made of wood, ash and lime before being ready for the upholstering process. Things made from buckskin leather are known to be very soft, supple and water-resistant and just exactly what you need for a combination of comfort and aesthetics. Yet another type of leather being used by many chair manufacturers is that which is chrome-tanned. This type is also known to be less elastic than vegetable-tanned leather. It is also a lot less expensive than other leather types and it dyes very well. One way of telling this type of leather is to check its edges. When they're gray, the leather used is probably chrome-tanned.
