There are many different styles and options available today if are looking for a leather chair. One category that encompasses a huge percentage of them is the leather armchair. They are also the most popular, by far.
One of the main reasons for their popularity is their diversity of styles. From leather club chairs to leather recliners, you will find no other category of furniture which offers you so many different options. Take leather lounge chairs for instance: leather lounge chairs come in a myriad of different colors, both natural and stained, and a whole host of different options. You can get models that recline, with or without feet support, and even models that offer full body massage units.
Sometimes, having too many options can, however, cause confusion. It can sometimes be difficult to figure out exactly what you want when there are so many different options from which to choose. Let’s take a look at some of the more popular options and where they are best suited.
If you are looking for the perfect chair to accent your living room furniture, a leather recliner is probably your best bet. Keep in mind however, that if you need the back of the chair to rest against a wall, a non-reclining lounge chair would be better suited. It might also help you to decide whether you would rather have a standalone ottoman, or a built-in foot rest. Some recliners have foot rests that automatically deploy when reclining. This would not be ideal with a standalone ottoman.
If you have the sitting room as part of the foyer of your home, and are looking for chairs to adorn it, a tub chair would fit the bill perfectly. Leather tub chairs are small and light, yet elegant. They are a superb way to add a bit of retro sophistication to your sitting room or foyer.
Leather club chairs, on the other hand, are an excellent smoking chair, reading chair, and cocktail chair. They are a bit bigger and heavier than a tub chair, but not nearly as bulky as a recliner. These chairs are great as accent pieces in your den, library, etc. They also have a bit of old-school about them, but are a bit more cozy in their styling.
Honestly, there are so many different styles and variations of leather arm chairs that I could not begin to cover them all in one article. For the leather chair purists among us, however, these are the three main categories. Hopefully this information will help you in the quest to find the perfect chair for your needs.
