Yep

Quoting AliKatAK47:

I have a set. They are soft. Although I have no idea if it is real Leather. It is from Raymour and Flannagen (sp?).

They look so easy to clean. It's just not my style though.

No. My evil cat would tear it to shreds.

We had one and I couldn't stand it. After a while the velcro that held the cushions in place didn't hold very well and the cushions were always sliding. In cold weather it would make me cold to the core if I wasn't wrapped in a blanket. In hot weather you stuck to it. We ended up giving it away.

I don't even like leather seats in my car.

If I ever buy any leather furniture, I would buy Full-Grain. This will develop a Patine over time instead of wearing out or have a "worn" look to the leather

My parents had a really nice one growing up and I hated it, my ass would get stuck to it and I would sweat. Then they bought a velvet couch, I FUCKING HATE THE FEEL OF VELVET! I just stick with the normal couches of ones made of microfiber, they are easy to keep clean.

Ugh....fucking hated the one we used to have. We had this leather sofa chair...I forget what they called, its too late at night to really think, but it was all leather. It looked nice, it was big and it looked comfy, but you can't sit in it during the summer, because you sweat and it just gets so uncomfortable and sticky, and in the winter, the chair is FREEZING, and then you can put a blanket on it, but that just moves around all over it and it never stays put...and you know what, its uncomfortable. It was hard, but soft. Like it wasn't like sitting on a rock or anything, but it was like sitting on a cake with a hard shell, if that makes any sense.

 

Don't do it. It looks nice, but soooooo not worth the money.

I do. It's not as comfortable as my cloth sofa, but it wears well.
