Office Furniture Best Kept Secret - 9to5 Seating

American manufacturing is trending and we're proud to say we saw it coming. Over five years ago, we began our reshoring efforts, which resulted in better vertical integration that sets our quality and value apart from our competitors. It allows us to build quality into every chair versus only check for it at the end of production. We've been referred to as the industry's best kept secret.

Now, the secret is out and we can't wait for it to be spread.

Clyde & Co Selects 9to5 Seating Mesh Chairs

Clyde & Co Selects 9to5 Seating Mesh Chairs

Last month I finished up a project with Office Furniture Group for Clyde & Co who is (according to their website) "a dynamic, rapidly expanding global law firm focused on providing a complete legal service to clients in our core sectors. We advise businesses that are at the heart of worldwide commerce and trade. Our combination of sector expertise, commercial attitude and in-depth regional understanding provides a unique perspective."

Clyde & Co was relocating to a larger office in the heart of Irvine and needed help selecting office seating and conference chairs for their redesigned office space. After visiting 9to5 Seating's state of the art factory and showroom in Hawthorne California the management was able to select the new Cydia series for their conference room and time tested Strata series for their task chairs. Both the Cydia and Strata are popular mesh chairs by 9to5 Seating.

How to Clean Leather Office Chairs

How to Clean Leather Office Chairs

Being a manufacturers representative for the commercial furniture industry; my job consists of allowing customers to sample products before they purchase. Loading sample chairs in and out of my van plus customers love to eat in the chairs while at their desk causes them to become quite dirty. I find that my leather conference chairs become the dirtiest over the course of just a couple of weeks. I try to showcase my sample chairs in the best condition possible and catch myself cleaning them quite frequently. Although there are plenty of leather cleaning agents out on the market I have found that they typically have a couple major issues.

  • They leave streaks on the leather after you wipe away the cleaner. Removing the streaks takes just as much work as cleaning the chair.
  • Although a leather conditioner cleaning agent is great to use, these types of products cause the leather chairs to be very slippery. I don't wont my potential customers sliding out of my chairs.
  • Most cleaning products for leather leave a horrible scent afterwards. I love the smell of natural leather which is impossible to bottle.

Recently while cleaning a leather chair in my garage my wife saw me struggling to get the chair clean. She recommended I try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. To my surprise the Magic Eraser worked wonders, plus it didn't leave any residue or streaks on the chair. No odor or slippery seat pans. I was quite impressed. Checkout the Cortina High Back white leather conference chair in the image below. You can see the left side is clean and the right side is still quite dirty with embedded dirt.
