Leather is certainly more attractive, but it's not comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. I'm sitting on a leather dining chair right now and my ass is sweating. It's also more slippery, which makes you slide forward on the seat if you're reclining.
I think I've decided on the freedom chair. I can't imagine that I can go wrong with it given all the glowing reviews and I really like the headrest that moves in to place as you recline. I'm gonna go with the gel seating and advanced armrests. I'm not sure about the fabrics though. I think I will go with the Vellum.
What color should I get though? I think the two I like most are pomegranate and grass. The black/charcoal/grey ones are too dull imo. The pomegranate especially looks pretty nice with the polished aluminum base.Chose colors here
What do you think about pomegranate? I'm pretty sure I don't want a black chair and a graphite-colored desk.
Thinking ahead, I will probably buy a biomorph desk after I get back from my trip and get my own place again. They're not the sexiest thing in the world but they're very functional with independent height-adjustable surfaces. I'd either go with the standard finish show in the first pic or the maple plywood in the second pic.
