Leather is a fairly broad term in today's furniture world. There are a variety of "leathers" now available - leather executive chairs finished with a hybrid "bonded" leather that combines a pulp from shredded leather applied to a backing (some of these exhibit excellent qualities); leather executive chairs finished with a 'graining' that uses leather in all contact areas and a vinyl match on the sides and backs (much like a leather car seat); or a genuine leather (or a bonded leather in some cases) that covers all the surfaces on the leather office seating including the back and sides. OfficeChairsUSA explains on each product page the type of leather or leather hybrid used on all leather desk chairs.
Many times the new bonded or 'Eco-leathers' have far superior traits to lower grade 'genuine leathers'. Questions? Please Live Chat us or call 888-355-4999.
