I just discovered this particular forum and could use some advice. I'm considering the following:
Palliser 41945 Atomic 3-seat curved, in brown top-grain leather/match with motor recline and removable trays. About $1,950.
Lane 103 Matinee 3-seat curved, in brown premium leather/match with motor recline and removeable trays. About $1,750.
I've been told the Lane Matinee is identical to the Berkline Reno and, in fact, they do appear to be the same. It seems that Berkline liquidated, Lane took over their factory, and is producing roughly the same products.
And, I've been told the Palliser Atomic is, in fact, the Pacifico model with the accessory trays.
My assumption is that the top-grain leathers will be essentially identical but what are the preferences between the two manufacturers, quality-wise. Comparing the two the Lane prices out about $150 - $200 less than the Palliser.
A very confusing market and could use advice from owners and etailers.
