A leather chair is a beautiful piece of furniture. But if it’s part of a home with children or animals, chances are that it won’t stay that way for very long. For that reason, you may want to look into getting some chair covers to protect it and keep it looking beautiful for years to come.
There are a lot of different types of chair covers that you can find to fit your chair. You can go for the clear plastic look, which allows the beauty of the natural leather to show through, but only to some extent. It is also very easy to clean, since you can just wipe it off with a wet paper towel or sponge. Most people however, find that a clear plastic cover looks tacky and uninviting, and reminds them of being in their grandparent’s homes as a child. Practical as it may be, it certainly is not the height of home fashion.
A different option is to go with fabric. You can have a chair cover made to fit your chair, or you can get one that is not very fitted but has the right overall measurements. This will give you a classy draped fabric look. You can also find matching covers for other chairs in the same room. Covering your dining room chairs with a jacquard draping and sash is a great idea. It will give your dining room the look of a fancy wedding hall meal, and is a great way to protect them at the same time.
Whatever kind of covering you choose, you’ll be making a wise decision. Leather furniture is not cheap, and the last thing you want is to find that your chair has scratches, scuffs, or rips that can’t be repaired. A good cover is an investment you’ll be very glad you made.
