In Defense of Upholstered Office Chairs

Often times people are quick to judge upholstered office chairs. For many, they symbolise furniture you would see at your grandparents house, particularly if the upholstery is not professionally done. This cannot be any further from the truth, and when you consider the expert ranges of upholstered office furniture available across the country today, you can see why they are starting to be all the rage again in offices of all shapes and sizes. Today, we’re writing in defense of upholstered office chairs, in a bid to debunk the stereotype and reintroduce you to a classic furniture option that may have slipped your mind the last time you bought new furniture. 

What is an Upholstered Office Chair Really?

Upholstery refers to the work of providing furniture, especially seats for chairs, with padding, springs or webbing, as well as adding leather or fabric covers. The word originates from Middle English (perhaps why it is considered a fairly archaic trade) and refers to artisans who managed to uphold their goods to stand the test of time. This is exactly what you get when you buy an upholstered item: something that is revamped and rejuvenated, something that can stand the test of time, and something that can be reimagined whenever you wish to make changes to the office space.

The Benefits of Upholstered Furniture

The benefits of this type of furniture, especially in office chairs, tends to be largely understated, but can be summarised in the following way. Due to its fibrous nature, this type of furniture naturally collects allergens throughout the course of its lifetime, which improves the air quality around it. It also gives the furniture a longer life and better aesthetic appearance over time, especially due to the fact that these pieces tend to be more versatile than other furniture types. Cleaning this type of furniture is also easier than most other types, which presents the furniture with a fresh smell at all times. When the time comes to look at buying new office furniture, you may also save a lot of money on redoing the upholstery, rather than having to buy brand new items at full price. This type of furniture can be a long-term investment, so don’t skimp in your first purchases, and watch the pieces come to life time and time again.
