    The Best Material for Chairs

    Let's face it, spray bottles do not really clean upholstery. They make it look clean. What gets trapped between and under the fibers is almost impossible to clean without the aid of a professional upholstery cleaner that vacuums out the grime rather than just letting it redeposit in a less noticeable way. Nevertheless, we conveniently tell ourselves it's clean after spilling coffee but germs never take a break. We can get all paranoid about this or just make believe it's not a problem. In many cases, it probably won't be but if your job description does not include farming microbes, there is a better way.

    Leather and vinyl chairs are far easier to wipe clean with a mild detergent. If germs are a major concern, it is hard to beat the benefits of a smooth surface. Leather is more durable than vinyl but overall, they both work well. However, the downside is they tend to be more expensive and can be a little cold at first when you sit. Which is best for a particular individual is a judgement call based on personal preference.

    See our Lorell product line which features some of our most affordable and stylish leather chairs, seat cushions & ottomans.
