Leather Lift Chair - Find Out What's Available
If you are looking to buy a leather lift chair there are several
fabric/upholsteries to consider including: top full grain leather, faux
leather, and leather mixtures. Keep in mind that most of the lift chair
manufacturers are using "ultraleather," which is not a genuine
leather but a polyurethane fabric that has "stay clean" and
other benefits not found in true leather. Also used at times is "bonded
leather" which is a leather mixture, offering a leather-like look,
but again not a true leather. There are also genuine leather lift recliners.
Cost for a leather lift chair
If a leather-type fabric option exists for the type of lift chair you select, expect to pay more. Again, depending upon the type of leather, bonded leather is generally less expensive than ultra leather, and full genuine leather is most expensive; though not widely available except in from a couple of manufacturers.
