Any product whether it is a bonded leather or leather could be a low quality or better one.
When you buy furniture in leather, you want to make sure that the leather is top grain, and not split leather, which actually can start cracking and peeling in a few years. Same goes for bonded leather. The process of making it could be different, and the so can be the end result. Yes, the bonded leather would probably overall will be less durable than top grain leather, but all depends on how and in what environment it is used. For example, if the room is not temperature controlled, and there is humidity present there, the bonded leather may not perform and last as long as it could.
So far we have shipped over 7000 chairs, and half of it was in bonded leather. The statistics so far are quite good, and the bonded leather we use preforms well, but again it would depend on numerous factors, and in some case problems could be expected.
Top grain leather is always a safe choice, and it will last probably longer that you would use your furniture before deciding to change it...
