Its durability and great style make the executive leather office chair an excellent choice for the office or home study. Executive leather chairs also have superb ergonomic features making them very comfortable and suitable for heavy use. Styles are available in contemporary and classic designs and in different price ranges to suit everyone's budget. Apart from the regular brown and black leathers some models are available in green, red and blue leathers should you fancy something a bit different.

As with all leather upholstered furniture you will find executive leather office chairs with different leather characteristics and qualities. The highest quality of leather used for furniture is called 'full grain leather'. The full grain leather is very durable, has a natural look and feel with visible grains and markings from the animal's skin. The next grade is a 'corrected grain leather' where some buffing or sanding was necessary to correct its imperfections before use. Leathers of both qualities offer great durability and style although the higher quality leather will be better suited for a high impact environment and many people prefer the natural leather look.

A leather chair should look good for a long time and requires only a minimum amount of care. However, remember to keep your executive chair out of direct sunlight and away from hot radiators.
