Good Questions: a Good Leather Chair?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

First, I want to say that I ve been a total lurker on your site since December. I love this place! Now for the question – I’m graduating law school this week and my present to myself is going to be a nice, comfy, affordable and hopefully stylish leather chair to curl up in and help motivate me to study for the ominous bar. I m open to vintage/used chairs as my budget limits me to around $500. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much. You guys are amazing!

Hey Hillit- first up, congrats on graduation!

We find that a good leather chair tends to start a little higher (more like $1000) but we typed in “leather chairs” on Craigslist and found both used (worth a look-see) as well as “cheap, new direct from warehouse” brands like this. While we can’t vouch for the quality of these, the price range seems doable. Good luck.

Anyone else?
