Leather Chair / April 26, 2018 / Kristin Armstrong
The frame construction should be a point of emphasis on any chair you consider for your house since this is the skeleton that supports all the material and coverings of the chair as well as your weight when you sit down. Look for wood frames that are screwed or bolted together. A frame that is nailed together is likely to loose strength over time and can start to wiggle and creak which isn't what you want in a great chair. Metal frames should have excellent welds...these will be clean and smooth to the touch with no pitting or rough spots. If you are feel that the welds are rough or messy it would be a good idea to consider a different manufacturer as it is very difficult to find someone to repair welds on a metal chair frame later on.
Comfort is always a concern with your furniture and leather chairs can often surpass the comfort you will find in a fabric chair. One great feature of leather is it's ability to keep the shape it was design too. Often fabric chairs will suffer from sagging and pulling when sat in for a few years which quickly turns a bargin into a waste of money if it has to be replaced quickly. Good quality leather chairs will create a comfort zone for years to come and if you look for some of the newer leather recliner and rocking chairs you can have everything you would find in a fabric chair.
