Chairman's Rest



When office chairs, lounges and work station screens are starting to look dated, faded, damaged by stains or cuts, or the work area requires a new colour look. Chairman’s Rest is able to re-upholster these items whilst using the frame that is structurally sound and could last for many more years. In office chairs and lounges changing the foam and fabric will provide these items with a new lease on life.

This option is also very practical if there are budget constraints.

Loan Chairs

Building works sometimes finish faster than expected, if your new chairs are not ready due to something unexpected like this, Chairman’s Rest is able to offer you our service of loan chairs.

When re-upholstering your existing office or task chairs, Chairman’s Rest wants to ensure that our clients are not inconvenienced, so we are able to offer our loan chairs for the period it takes to complete this work.

Maintenance, Repairs and Chair Audits

Ensuring that your office chair or executive chair is in the best condition every day of its life, Chairman’s Rest recommends an annual maintenance schedule, whereby we check all foam densities, fasteners, fabric, gas lifts, clutch plates, castors and gas actuators.

Caring for Leather

If you spill on your leather

Blot the excess liquid as soon as possible with a clean absorbent cloth. Wipe the spot from the outer edge of the spill to its centre to prevent cleaning rings. Dry it by blotting the spot with a clean towel and then allowing it to air dry. Never allow spills to set, as moisture can cause discoloration of the leather.

If the stain persists:

Dribble distilled water solution over the spot ensuring you do not saturate the area. Dry any excess moisture with a clean cloth by blotting it until the cloth comes back dry, and then let the spot air dry. Make sure you test this cleaning method on an inconspicuous place prior to cleaning the stain to make sure your leather is colourfast.

Aging Leather

It is best to refrain from placing leather goods too close to windows or other places where they will be in direct sunlight, as natural leather may fade under extensive exposure. Also, do not place your leather furniture any closer than two feet away from a radiator or similar heat source, as direct heat may also cause damage. Sometimes the patina that aniline leather acquires can be confused with a defect in the leather. Over time your leather will develop a lustre or shine which will enhance the natural beauty of the leather. This is a natural process that adds to the value of your furniture and cannot be prevented. The key to maintaining beautiful leather is proper care and conditioning. While all furniture ages with time, neglect and harsh conditions are the primary causes of damage and deterioration of leather goods. By following the steps above, and by taking care of your furniture, you can go a long way to extending the life and beauty of your valuable leather furniture.

Oil, Butter and Grease Stains

Do not use water! Blot the spill with a dry clean cloth until the towel comes back dry. Leave the spot alone for a day or so, allowing the stain to cure. Often the oil will dissipate into the leather and become unnoticeable. If the stain is still visible, call a leather specialist...

Cleaners to Avoid

  • Furniture polish
  • Varnish
  • Detergents, and alcohol-or ammonia-based products.
  • Never use saddle soaps or mink oil.
  • Oil-based cleaning products can stretch the leather near the seams and pull it away from the stitching; it can also discolour the leather as well. During the tanning process the leather has been permanently preserved, making it unnecessary to maintain it with a lot of products. It only needs the simple cleaning that is recommended.
