There’s almost nothing with a more practical purpose than an office chair. It provides you with the support and comfort you need to get your work done. It is quite possibly the most important piece of furniture in your office.
The right chair not only sets the stage for the type of office environment you are trying to create, it can also be a statement piece that says a lot about you. For example, while an office chair upholstered in bright fabric creates a more casual, cheerful vibe, a stately, dark leather chair evokes an atmosphere of authority.
A leather chair will not only make a statement that communicates prestige and luxury, it also offers unrivaled durability and comfort.
Office chairs upholstered in a plastic or vinyl based materials tend to wear and crack easily. The mesh that covers many ergonomic chairs often stretches over time and causes a sagging effect that makes the chair uncomfortable to sit in. Not only does leather last longer, it looks better. The signs of wear and tear just add to its cachet. The Brookhaven Desk Chair by Hooker Furniture, pictured above, is both functional and stylish with decorative hardware. It will enhance the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your home office.
Whether in your home office, or your office away from home, you probably sip coffee as you work, or occasionally eat lunch at your desk. Accidents do happen, and the result would be an unsightly, hard-to-remove stain on most common office chair fabrics. Spills on a leather chair can be quickly and easily wiped off. The Kingstown Admiralty Desk Chair by Tommy Bahama gives your home office a relaxed, traditional look inspired by British Colonial style, while the custom leather upholstery option makes it easy to keep clean.
Office chairs are made of a wide range of materials, from plastic and wood to fabric and mesh coverings. However, leather offers a distinct advantage. Unlike metal, plastic, or wood, leather gives you full padding in both the seat and the back. After sitting at your desk for more than a few hours a day, this padding is very welcome. The Stressless Ruby by Ekornes gives your office a touch of sleek style and more than a touch of relaxing comfort.
Leather furniture often lasts three times as long as other fabrics. A traditionally styled leather chair, such as the Executive Swivel Tilt Chair by Hooker Furniture, gives you luxury and comfort that will stand the test of time. You will be able to continue working and executing at a high level in your home office, den, or study for years to come.
