How much fabric or leather do I need to upholster a chair

It is a frequently asked question, how much fabric do I need to upholster a chair? In 2014 I already made a short video with the most common models in the Netherlands. But in the meantime, time has not stood still and Leather hide store has made a very nice online guide. The great thing about it is that they provide the number of yards for fabrics as well as for leather. And that’s not all, they also have a fabric and leather calculator. The only tricky part is that it has yards for fabric and square feet for leather. But that is also easy to solve by just searching the internet for “converting yards to meters”. It is of course recommended to measure your chair or sofa yourself before you go shopping.
