But it is important to note that selecting office chair fabrics is not easy. While almost every other furniture fabric comes with great benefits, nevertheless, there are some do’s and don’ts that have to be considered while choosing office chair fabrics:
i. Fabric material
While choosing fabric for an executive chair, always do some research on the type of fabric that you require and how it is going to offer comfort to your employees. Consider fabric material before any other attribute. Apart from comfort, it should encourage air flow while reducing suffocation.
Do not consider colour, design or texture before the material you are going to choose for your office chairs.
Breathability is one crucial factor that gets overshadowed in the segment of office chair fabrics. Human body/back is prone to releasing heat and sweat while sitting for long hours on a chair. Hence, you must consider breathable fabrics (such as Mesh) for your office chairs that can offer cool and calmness to employees.
Do not go for Vinyl or any other tough fabric that is not breathable or block heat and sweat.
This particular segment is slowly picking up pace in the furniture fabrics industry. Investing in office chair fabrics is not about a small amount of money or effort. They need to perform well for at least 5-7 years. To have a fresh looking office chair, customers must go for fire retardant, water repellent, stain resistant, anti-static, black-out or acoustic fabrics. These performance fabrics play a major role in keeping the office environment safe, clean and visually pleasing.
Try to avoid ordinary office chair fabrics as it is about huge investment and impacts the reputation of the workspace.
iv. Durability & Maintenance
Durability and maintenance of office chair fabrics are significant and directly related to their performance. For instance, if you are having stain resistant fabric chairs in your office, then you don’t have to worry about expensive cleaning processes that affect the durability of the fabric. Always go for fabrics that have some extra added advantage to suit your requirements.
Do not go for fabrics that are less durable in order to save money while purchasing them as the low-quality fabric can charge you with expensive cleaning procedures in the later stage.
