One problem some people seem to find with leather is the tendency for it to put a shine on your clothing, especially for those that wear expensive outfits or business suits to work. You may find that your clothes wear out more quickly than before if you were sitting in a fabric or mesh chair. If you work in an office that does not have air conditioning or gets really hot in temperature, especially during the summer months, you may find that your leather office chair will cause you to sweat and perspire excessively. However, some top quality leathers do come with a breathable finish which will help reduce or even eliminate this problem.
When purchasing your last office chair you probably were given the option of which type of casters(wheels) you wanted to have included on your chair. Generally there are not too many wheel option, usually the most common are standard carpet casters or an option to upgrade to soft casters that are more gentle on hardwood floors. Usually carpet, no matter which casters your chair comes with, provides too much resistance for office chairs rollers to work well. On carpet, often it is difficult to roll from one place to another because of the amount of pressure being put on the wheels from a person sitting on the chair, in addition to an already resistant surface. Rolling a chair over carpet will also wear down carpet fibers over time; you may find the spots on your carpet where your chair typically rolls over becoming more bare and noticeably different. Chairs also sometimes tend to leave indentations in carpet if used in the same spot that are near impossible to get rid of.
Do you want your chairs to be comfortable and do you need them to match? Folding chairs are available with hard seats, padded seats, or thick cushioned seats. They come in almost every color imaginable. Will they be used outdoors? If these chairs will be left outside, you may not choose padded. Will the chairs be left out overnight? Will be be outside for days at a time? Where you will use your chairs is an important purchasing factor.
In Britain, wing chairs remained in the parlour or living room. Writers in the Victorian era describing idealised scenes of family life round a blazing hearth often mentioned a fireside chair. 19th century chairs were often more generously padded than earlier wingbacks, often filled with a very firm horsehair stuffing. Contemporary designers now produce all sorts of shapes and sizes of wing chair, and yet the early Queen Anne shape has an enduring popularity.Though the functional need for the wing declined as homes moved away from open fires to central heating, the design motif remained steadfastly popular. And not just in traditional furniture designs. Even with modernist furniture design in the 1950s and 1960s new chair designs using new materials (e.g. designs by Grant Featherstone 1951, Edward Wormley designing for Dunbar in the 1950s ‘The Egg‘ by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, Denmark, 1958) either retained or re-invented the wing.
If you look at antique French wing chairs, or newer chairs echoing the Louis XIV or Louis XV period, you may well see a lower seat in the bergère style. Similarly, in 18th century England Hepplewhite tried lowering the seat in his designs. He called the wings saddle-cheeks, perhaps knowing that they were called cheeks, not wings, in France. Ears is their other name, used in some parts of Europe, and remembered in the old-fashioned British name lug-chair. (Lugs is slang for ears.) American wing chairs, also called easy chairs, were often considered bedroom furniture suitable for anyone frail or tired, sitting quietly in their room. Both antique and modern wing chairs may be associated with elderly people; a high seat and back with built-in draught-proofing offer an appropriate kind of comfort, and remind us that another name for this piece of furniture is grandfather chair.
Once you have determined where you will be spending most of your time sitting and ergonomic accessories that may also play a part in the height adjustment of your chair, you will want to locate where the button or lever is on your chair that controls the height. On most chair models, it is generally located on the right hand side of the chair right below the seat. Some higher end chairs may even have pictures on their levers explaining what each lever on the chair does. All chair models will vary, and you will need to take the time to understand what each button does in order to fully adjust your chair to meet your needs.
