I think now they make em allot cooler. I gotta find someplace local that sells something like this, but I don't think I am going to find it.
What are you thinking of buying? I've sat in quite a few chairs now since we have some stores locally that carry HT seating.
So far Row One (they used to be Barcalounger or they merged or something) have been my favorites but I've only sat in the Manhattan style from Row One. The one I bought was a bit "shinier" looking than all the other chairs, I think that type of bonded leather just didn't breath very well.
I went in yesterday and literally sat in another Manhattan that had the non shiny bonded leather for an hour! Yeah, I'm a little OCD. After an hour it was much better than the seat I bought but it was still just a little warm so I figured I'd play it safe, spend more money (yikes) and get the real leather.
I like the Row One Manhattan because it is soft but doesn't get uncomfortable over long periods of time (well, other than getting hot) and it reclines further than the Pallisers. I've sat in many styles of the Pallisers and the Rhumba is my favorite but all of them I wish they reclined further.
I do wish the Manhattan had a higher back, but then there is the issue of blocking the surrounds so it's a trade-off.
I've done so much researching chairs in the last few weeks it's nuts.
