Buying Guide

Metal and leather chairs are designed to suit all kinds of living arrangements and interior décor. They're excellent add-ons to living rooms as they provide additional seating while enhancing their look and feel.

However, just like any investment that you make, buying a metal and leather chair requires careful consideration and planning. To help you make the right decision, we’ll tackle everything you need to know about this type of seating below.

You need to have an understanding of the types of leather that are used for metal and leather chairs or else you won't get the right type based on your needs, preferences, and goals. In a nutshell, there are three broad categories of leather upholstery: unprotected, protected, and faux.

  • Unprotected or unfinished leather is the best quality hide as it's full grain leather. You'll be able to see characteristics of the hide such as scar marks, fat wrinkles, and brand marks as they were not removed by buffing or sanding. As this type uses high-quality hides, there are just minimal imperfections and flaws. The reason why unprotected leather is the best type of leather for chair upholstery is because of its durability and strength.
  • The next type is protected or finished leather. Although it is of lower quality, it still makes use of full grain hides. It has more surface imperfections compared to unprotected leather, but a coating is applied in order to hide the defects of the hides and give the material a color consistency. There are other finishes that are applied to give the hides an antiquated look. Protected leather upholstery can resist stains, dirt, and oil. Also, it features the desirable qualities of leather.
  • Fake leather, on the other hand, is bonded leather. It's been created by putting together leather scraps on a sheet of fiber then applied with polyurethane. After that, the material is embossed with a fake leather grain pattern in order to give it genuine leather's appearance. Most homeowners shy away from faux leather as it doesn't have the desired qualities of real leather.

When it comes to the framing of metal and leather chairs, you will have two options: aluminum and steel. The best option for you will depend on your preference and budget.

  • Steel framing makes a chair more expensive, but it will depend on the thickness of the metal that’s used. It’s your best option if you want the most durable type of framing. It’s quite heavy, but it can last several years. Steel is also resistant to corrosion as it's added with chromium. If you will be adding the metal and leather chair in a kitchen or home with kids and pets, we suggest you choose steel framing as it's less reactive to spills.
  • Aluminum framing may not be as strong as steel, but it’s very light. It's also cheaper compared to steel. As aluminum is soft, it's a favorite among furniture makers which is one of the reasons why there are lots of chairs made of aluminum.
