I checked out a few chairs today. I like some of the Lane ones and also the Seatcraft Grenada and Venetian. Now I did not see the Lane 176 Matrix in person but it seems to be at a good price point as well.
Now, two question for anyone familiar with it:
* Bonded vs. real leather: is it worth the extra spend?
* I really like the look of microfiber but it basically doesn't exist. Now, the bonded leather on the Matrix has a microfiber kind of look. Anyone know if this is what it really looks like or is the picture deceiving?
Well, since the Matrix turned out to be out of stock, I got the same deal on a set of brown Seatcraft Signature Venetian chairs. Slightly different look but I remember them to be very comfortable as well.
