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.

For a full luxury leather lift chair, take a look at brand: Med-Lift. This manufacturer designs a 100% leather lift recliner including: the seat, entire back, legs, sides, pocket, and pillow. They manufacture two models: (1) 5500 Wall Away, this one is a wall hugger; (2) the 5555 Full Sleeper. The Full Sleeper must be positioned 19 inches from the wall.
