We have an excellent range of leather captains chairs, bespoke chairs & directors chairs. Choosing the right leather desk chair to use with your desk or writing table is not a decision to take lightly. It’s surprising just how long many of us spend sitting at our desks, often pouring over a computer screen, typing into a keyword or manipulating a mouse - so the correct posture, back support, and comfort are essential elements of a successful seating experience.

From the elegance and comfort of an adjustable leather captain’s chair to the sheer luxury of a leather directors chair, we have a leather chair to meet almost everyone’s needs. Some are antique leather desk chairs and antique leather armchairs, whereas others are contemporary pieces made in a variety of period styes by skilled craftsmen using leather of a superior quality that can be dyed in a colour to suit your requirements and taste.

Let’s Look At Leather Chairs

Let's take a look at antique leather desk chairs first. The problem with chairs is that, well, people tend to want to sit in them and, as a result, they get worn and scruffy over the years. This is of course a sign that the chair has been well-loved and well-used but it does need attention from time to time. The upholstery may well need replacing. That’s where our team of expert upholsterers and furniture restorers comes into its own. We will usually reupholster worn leather desk chairs and armchairs using fine quality hide which can be dyed in a colour of your choice or in a colour to match as close as possible to the original. This same team of leather experts will also be tasked with replacing the leather working surface on an antique desk or writing table and there’s no reason why this cannot be done, by request, in matching colours. Just ask and we will do our best to meet your requirements.

Next, we should look at more recent and contemporary leather desk chairs. Bearing in mind that this is a piece of furniture that is not primarily purchased as a display item - it is a functional item that someone is probably going to sit in for prolonged periods of time.

For this reason, comfort and functionality are more important than good looks - but if you can get both then that’s a bonus - and you certainly can. We are very pleased to be able to offer a range of contemporary leather desk chairs and armchairs to our clients in a combination of styles and finishes to go with almost any desk, old or new. In this section you will see several examples but please bear in mind that we can usually upholster the chair in a colour that will complement your other furnishings - just let us know what colour and finish you have in mind and we will do our best to provide it for you.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Olive

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Olive

An absolutely stunning bespoke new leather 'Director's chair' in a beautiful Old English Olive 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. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
