Nanette Lelievre Bar Stools January 30, 2018 23:03:41
Have you ever ridden a horse? When you sit in a saddle seat bar stool you get back the feeling of being in the saddle and this adds to the illusion of the grand old wild west times.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally the more expensive the leather the more of these imperfections you will see. The "Cheaper" leathers used in furniture are often "corrected" leather. Corrected leathers are treated sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a "brand" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
