Generally people are not aware of the differences between regular leather chairs or leather settees. In fact, many people do not even know what a leather settee or a folding settee is. In actuality, the two are quite different.
The first and the most important difference lie in their quality. The quality of a leather settee is much better than your average leather chairs or leather folding chairs. Leather lends a sophisticated look to the furniture but also makes it quite easy to notice the difference in quality. Leather settees are manufactured with much more concern and care so that the overall quality is maintained.
Leather settees may seem a bit heavy on your pocket book, but it is well worth the money spent. A normal leather settee can cost twice as much a regular chair. This can cause many to disregard them, but if you consider buying a leather settee as an investment and long term asset then spending more money initially should not bother you so much.
Another major difference between chairs and settees lies in their length. A leather settee looks similar to a small sofa that has one full seat or two or three smaller ones. In some designs, leather settees are available in folding chair type configurations which make them versatile pieces of seating furniture. Settees offer more space and can provide seating for two people rather unlike chairs. Before you buy a regular chair or a folding leather settee you need to consider what room you are going to place it in and how many people you need to accommodate in that particular area. A settee is a much more “formal” style of seating in places where a couch would not be quite as appropriate.
Consider the settee’s color before buying one for your home or office. Choose a color that complements other furniture and fixtures within your house. For a settee that blends with your natural or wooden furniture, choose one in natural black or brown color. For a settee to be placed in a lounge or to give a dramatic look, choose one in hues of mahogany or cranberry.
An authentic leather settee is ideal for any office or home decor. It makes a huge difference to the overall decor. If you are thinking of the purchase as an investment then make sure that you buy a leather settee of genuine leather and don’t get tempted by cheap settee made of faux leather. The difference between these two are hard to notice and if you do not have an experience you might get cheated. Buy a leather settee, either a fixed type or a folding type, to add a touch of class to your decor.
