What Makes a Man Chair?

June 13, 2016

Nestled somewhere in the family home exists a special place for Dad. His place of refuge, contemplation, solitude and relaxation. It’s a sacred place none of us dare occupy in his presence, a place nobody else can fully understand the symbolic importance of. In honor of Father’s Day, we have put together some tips and ideas for all those dad’s out there who are in need of a luxury chair to escape to.

When considering a new Man Chair, nothing says masculine like a luxurious fine leather. Leather is easy for clean up, easy to maintain and comes in an endless variety of colors, hues and textures. This Whittemore Sherrill leather chair is a fine example of extraordinary leather craftsmanship.
