A look around the listings in this category of our website will open up a world of comfort and style. Leather armchairs, whether antique, vintage or contemporary, never fail to add class and comfort to any room - whether it be at home or the office.
Sinking into a sumptuous leather armchair after a hard day’s work - shopping or watching the match - is a luxury we should all allow ourselves from time to time, and there is no finer chair in which to do it that one from Regent Antiques’ range of fine antique leather armchairs and period style leather armchairs.
Antique Leather Armchairs
Like a fine wine, leather furniture - including antique leather armchairs - often improve with age. The upholstery, usually fine quality leather, takes on a patina and unique character as the hide gets more and more worn in. This unique combination of colour and appearance cannot be effectively faked. This is the reason why so many people seek these lovely armchairs for both home use and for placing in commercial spaces such as restaurants, offices, hotel lounges and bars.
There are times however when the well worn look turns into the worn out look - the upholstery simply does not have more life in it. You know the kind of thing - a fine old leather armchair with the stuffing hanging out - sometimes you just have to give them a helping hand.
Leather armchairs given a new lease of life
Of course, we do have to reupholster vintage and antique leather armchairs from time to time and we have the ideal in-house team of craftsmen to do that with the care, attention and respect for the old-timer in question. We can, at this stage, offer to dye the hide in a colour of your choice, so please contact us to register your interest and we will work with you to find the leather armchair of your dreams and give it the appearance that you desire.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Dark BrownAn absolutely stunning bespoke new leather 'Director's chair' in a beautiful dark brown colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Height is adjustable with swivel/tilt mechanism. ‘Old English’ is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat. Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish. Each hide will be unique, as will be the furniture on which it is used. The studding is achieved with close individual nails or studs - not by using strips - and each nail is individually hammered in by hand. The seat has individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand-sewn to the beechwood frame and the filling is canvas, fibre and felt. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. Available in other colours upon request. Bespoke orders and wholesale enquiries welcome.
