I guess I'm still not sold on bonded leather...especially at the price of these chairs (they're not exactly inexpensive). Most furniture stores who sell bonded leather anything sell it quite inexpensively. I know...I know..."not all bonded leather is the same". Right. I'm no expert, but as far as I can tell "bonded" leather is at most 10 to 20% actual leather (who knows what the rest of it is). That makes me question the quality. Also, I've seen several postings on this very site of pictures of bonded leather chairs that look pretty bad, after a few years of usage, and some of those chairs were purchased from Roman (at least according to the posters). Just so I'm clear, I'm not picking on Roman. I've dealt with the guy, and he's a good guy. I'm simply making the point that bonded leather doesn't really seem to hold up, regardless of who is selling it.
