Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Renowned Chicago-based antiques destination Antiques on Old Plank Road offers a dynamic inventory of artisan leather treasures - sourced throughout the world and sold through its Leather Club Chairs site. Many of these leather chairs and leather home furnishing pieces are purchased and imported from France and are available for quick, “white glove” delivery all across North America. Now, to help prospective customers gain a greater appreciation for the fundamentals of leather furniture, Leather Club Chairs has created an exciting new infographic entitled, “The Ultimate Guide to Leather.”
Most consumers immediately think of cowhide when they think leather, but the infographic covers the top twelve sources of leather most commonly seen today. More common animal leathers like cowhide and pigskin are referenced, but there’s also discussion about the recent proliferation of a variety of alternative sources like stingray, eel skin, and kangaroo that have all made considerable inroads into the domestic leather market. The common uses, as well as the benefits and limitations of each leather type, are introduced through the infographic.
One of the most insightful pieces of the infographic covers the overall use of leather across all product types. Between footwear (52%) and furniture (14%), a full two-thirds of all leather is used to make shoes and leather chairs, ottomans, and other leather furniture. Almost 10% of all leather consumed in the US is used to make gloves – and a full 10% is used in automobiles, too! The infographic continues to include other enlightening and informative facts, but the “most expensive products” section is just plain fun. From boots that cost more than the average luxury car to handbags that might leave no cash left over for the matching wallet, these items are certainly designed for the discriminating leather aficionado.
