Shopping Tips for Leather Armchairs

Whether you are shopping for reclining leather armchairs, a chesterfield armchair or chaise longue one thing that can be guaranteed is that you will be spoilt for choice. Along with the different styles and types of chair available, there are also endless options in terms of the colour and type of leather that covers the furniture. Below are a few tips to ensure you choose the correct armchair for you and your home.

Which leather armchair is best for you?

There are two broad types of leather armchair available, fixed and reclining. Recliner chairs offer adjustable seating positions for the ultimate in luxury and comfort and have a built in footrest so that you can put your feet up at the end of a long day. Fixed armchairs as the name suggests do not have a reclining action. Many people will buy a separate leather ottoman footstool so that they can then have the option of putting their feet up when required. When shopping for leather armchairs, think about who will be using them and the available space required, this should help narrow your search down and make choosing the correct leather armchairs a little easier.

Mix and matching armchairs

The beauty of buying leather arm chairs is that you do have the option of buying matching coordinating chairs or make a bold statement by choosing non-matching chairs. Different shapes and covering of both fabric and leather armchairs can be used to create an interesting and creative interior.

Where to buy?

You can buy leather armchairs online or on the high street, its best to shop around for leather armchairs to ensure you get the best possible deal, cheaper prices can be found online but in most cases you are buying without the ability to see or sit on the items of furniture first. If you can visit furniture stores on the high street and then source the items online, this is a good way of getting the best of both worlds.

Caring for your leather armchairs

Most leather furniture is relatively easy to clean and care for as well as being durable and long lasting. Always use cleaning products that are specific to the type of leather that is used on your chairs, if you are unsure, it is always good to ascertain this at the point of sale. If you are unsure about the cleaning product you are using it is always good practice to use it on a small inconspicuous area before applying across the whole of your leather armchairs.
