Who would have thought that the style of leather office chairs sold to clients of ours throughout the United States would vary so much from region to region? From California to Texas to New York, the style of leather office chairs is very different!
California, the land of Hollywood, San Fransisco’s famous rebellious attitude, and the surfer mentality, you would think furniture style would lean more towards the modern, off the wall. In many offices, you will find such furniture – stylish, sleek and worthy of any design within reach catalog. However, there is a predominant majority that sticks to black leather office chairs and mahogany desks – a conservatively modern look. The black leather office chairs that tend to be the most popular are not flashy – from our experience with customers, they shy away from chrome accents and the like. The chair shown to the right is a prime example of what our California (and majority of the West Coast) clientele aims to be sat in – simple, straightforward and comfortable, with a touch of a modern style that says, “I’m trying to be modern…Really, I’m trying.”
Having lived in Texas, I know what it feels like – as in the atmosphere, the people, and the ambiance. And just to clarify, for all the people who think Texas is what the movies portray it to be, it’s actually a great state with even better people (for the most part – there are bad apples everywhere). The barbecue is beyond amazing and the Texas two step is a whole lot of fun.
But the the leather office chairs they love lean more on the side of what the rest of the United States labels as traditional furniture. Chairs with button inlays, copper rivets and casters, usually with a mahogany frame, are office mainstays. The look is more reminiscent to what your lawyer’s office would have, rather than the office you work in (unless, of course, you’re a lawyer.) The matching captain’s chair is also very popular – one of our most popular.
The traditional frame of mind is usually associated with Texas, and the leather office chairs we have sold most to that state appropriately reflect this. Quite honestly, it is a good look for the state, as it fits well with the comforting feel of the state of Texas.
Ah the Big Apple! A mecca of fashion, money, and power! Shouldn’t their leather office chairs reflect this perception? Well, they do, to an extent. The bulk of the leather office chairs we have sold to New York or the New England area are modern, but classy, as evidenced by the wood frame and accents on the executive leather office chair to the right. Wood accents on chairs are always a good way to add more class and elegance to a chair, executive or otherwise.
So, there are varying styles from coast to coast, but really, as long as we all realize that Sitbetter has the best leather office chairs, then it’s all good. As good as biscuts and gravy.
