Good Question: What’s the Deal With Door Store Club Chairs for $599?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I recently looked at the leather club chairs at The Door Store on West 17th Street. The chairs were comfortable, looked good to me, and were very inexpensive compared with chairs at other stores. Can anyone comment on the quality of these chairs and how might they stand up over time? Thanks for your help.

Regards, Betsy T.

Dear Betsy, we have only heard good things about the Door Store over the years, but price is a very good indicator of quality. We spoke to a sales rep and they told us that they get their prices down by using Italian leather and making the chairs in China out of alderwood (the chair we looked at was $599). They have a 10 year guarantee on the frame. It CAN’T be the same thing as a $1500 chair, BUT if you like it, and it feels comfortable, we say go for it.
