Top 5 Best Real Leather Gaming Chairs [2023]

Let’s face it…

Nothing boasts luxury quite like a leather seat. From motorbikes to cars and even yachts, leather seats are a symbol of perfection, attitude, and status. If you are a gamer, you probably know that leather gaming chairs pretty much mimic this status in the gaming world.

And if you think that gaming chairs made from leather are just another gimmick, let me tell you something…

Leather is highly regarded because of its excellent properties. When you sit at it in the morning, feel it under your skin and patiently touch it while gaming. Today’s leather used in gaming chairs is sophisticated and pretty much everything you would ask for from your gaming chair.

Also, it is a material that never goes out of style – and one that is durable. But instead of me saying this, let’s jump to the best leather gaming chairs and their reviews – so that they speak for themselves.

The Best (Real) Leather Gaming Chairs Money Can Buy

If you are looking for the throne for your gaming endeavors, this is the part you should be looking at. Keep in mind that leather gaming chairs are pretty expensives. Manufacturer only puts leathers on their high-end products, and they charge you extra for the leather option.

Below, I am listing the bestselling, best-rated and most durable real leather gaming chairs that money can buy right now – starting from our least favorite to the best leather gaming chair on the market.

5. AKRacing OnyX Deluxe Leather Gaming Chair

 Best of Luxury Gaming Comfort 

The AKRacing OnyX Deluxe Gaming Chair combines top grain leather upholstery with optimum comfort, accommodating up to 330 pounds. It features a class-four gas lift, 180-degree recline feature, 3D armrests, and 65mm casters, ensuring a glove-like fit and a versatile seating experience. Its black, sleek design is visually striking, making it a suitable choice for gamers and professionals alike.

  • Versatile Adjustment: Offers 180-degree recline and 3D adjustable armrests.
  • Price: More expensive than some other models at $699.
  • PU Leather on Back: Uses PU leather on the back and cushions, which is less durable than top grain leather.

I said ‘least favorite’ – didn’t I?

Well, you should not take my words for granted. Even though I am putting this model as number five on my list, I think this is a very decent model. The AKRacing OnyX leather gaming chair is a well recognised model, and has been highly rated. Wondering why?

Well, to begin with, the price of this chair is generally okay (although I’ve seen cheaper models as well). For only $799, you are getting ‘the first and only top grain leather chair from AKRacing’ (as the brand describes it). As you probably don’t know, the word Onyx here reflects the chair’s black color.

After seeing it in person, I could see that the OnyX Deluxe is both comfortable and accommodating to your body shape, giving you a glove-like fit. There is a class-four gas lift which can support gamers of up to 330 pounds – and a 180 recline feature just in case you want to take a nap on real leather. The tilt angle works fine and locks in place, sitting on a five-star aluminum base, steel frame and large 2.6-inch casters.

To sum things up, this chair offers:

  • Top grain leather upholstery on front and PU leather on back and cushions
  • New frame with cold-cured foam for maximum comfort and durability.

Okay, this chair also features 4D armrests (instead of the 3D armrests seen in the OnyX Deluxe), which is another valuable point to consider…

All in all, the EPIC is a chair that does not compromise on quality. You can immediately see that with the six different color combinations that the brand offers, executing its real leather style through a variety of stitches and leather shades. My personal favorite is the white-black combination (even though my friends said that it easily gets dirty).

Made from leather, this chair speaks luxury in every part of it. It also features an ergonomic form that curves with and protects the natural shape of the back, keeping its passenger supported even during extended periods of time. The brand also used cold upholstery which is denser than average, resulting in a firm look that is resilient to wear.

Lastly, the customization options of this chair are amazing. There are complimentary head and lumbar pillows and numerous color variants with options for upholstery, all coming with top-grain leather that is 15mm thick.
