If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The ”Cheaper” leathers used in furniture are often ”corrected” leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a ”brand” mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
You should ensure that the stools are made with a solid piece of oak wood and poplar or gum is not mixed with the wood. Sometimes, more pieces of wood are laminated together and this makes the stools more vulnerable and they will be affected by varying temperatures. This may cause warping and cracking. Especially, if the stools are kept in the kitchen, due to the heat in the kitchen surroundings, warp and distortion in shape may take place. This is because the glue used for putting the laminates together will get affected by the heat of the kitchen.
