Adding Class With a Leather Chair

Leather is Versatile and Classy

Leather furniture can encompass any type of furniture from the simple leather chair to the more exotic fair such as leather throw pillows or even a bed with a leather covered headboard.  Many people shy away from leather because of the high price, but upon further consideration you may actually see that over the course of a lifetime leather can end up being much cheaper than alternatives.
First off leather is highly durable, think kid proof and in my case even great dane proof.  You can wipe spilled milk off of a leather couch much more easily than you can clean it off of a fabric couch.  And dog, hair or dog smell for that matter, don’t even get me started.  There is a reason why leather is so popular and has been used for centuries.

Here are Some of the great benefits of leather

Most furniture salesmen will be quick to point out that even though a leather chair may cost twice as much as its fabric counterpart it will easily last 4 times as long. And, one of the best parts about leather is that as it ages it often tends to develop a mature look.
Leather is also very easy to care for when compared with other alternatives. As I have already mentioned it is easy to clean. All you need is a damp cloth. You can use a leather conditioner if you like but this is not essential.
A room decorated with a leather chair and other leather furniture looks like class. People often associate leather with high quality and the wealthy, so I can understand why many people want to decorate their homes with leather.
As I also mentioned before leather does not hold the smells that other furniture may hold. Whether that be from spilled food and drink or from prolonged use. Fabric furniture and other materials may start out with an unpleasant odor that just gets worse with age. Fabric furniture can get so bad that you may actually decide to get rid of the furniture before it is worn out.
So lets take a look at what your options are for putting together a room full of comfortable leather furniture.
There are the most famous and the most obvious first choices. The leather couch and love seat as well as the leather chair. You can often find matching pairs that are discounted when you buy the set and will most likely include a leather ottoman, that can often double as a coffee table.
One not often used piece of leather furniture is the dining room table that has a leather seat. This is a great option for many people that want padded dinning room chairs but do not want fabric chairs. Leather works very well in the dinning room specifically because of its ability to be easily cleaning.
I have already mentioned leather chairs but we don’t have to stop there, there are many different types of leather chairs. From wing back chairs, to club chairs, to chaise lounges, and office chairs. The possibilities of what you can do with leather are endless.
Now of course if you are going to go all the way and get comfortable leather chairs it is important to support that comfort by also getting a matching leather ottoman. I realize I am starting to sound like a salesman but I only say this because when I finally splurged and bought an ottoman I wondered how and why I had put it off for so long. Many ottomans can also double as storage or a coffee table.
For a perfect reading spot consider the chaise lounge. The leather varieties of chaise lounge will often be similar to the psychologist chair that many think of. There is a reason they put these in doctors offices, they are comfortable and classy.
Leather beds are also becoming popular. And, in many different varieties. From an entire bed frame covered in leather to the cowboy version of a ranch bed with a cow hide for a head board. There are many options and it doesn’t stop there. One of the classiest bed I have seen recently is a sleigh bed with a leather head board and foot board.
Leather is a truly versatile material that looks good on cowboys and even better on cowgirls as well as being a very classy addition to any home. So whether you are looking for used office furniture or to entirely furnish a new home leather could be the way to go and you many be surprised to see that a couple of leather couches and a leather chair could save you money in the long run.
