    I’ve heard a good review from a friend – the only one I know of who has it. What do reviews say online?

    Not great! A friend has this. Because it’s not all leather it is cold in winter, hot in summer and I challenge you to find pillows that won’t just slide off.

    I don’t know anything really about bonded leather, but we have my fiance’s grandparents real leather couch and it looks awesome even though its over 15 years old. If your going to invest in something and it doesn’t break your bank, I’d go for real.

    This is a type of leather where they take what’s left over from making true leather pieces. They cut it up and then add a glue type agent to keep it all together. It’s like having real wood furniture vs. the stuff that’s pressed together (you know the furniture you put together and its wood fibers)

    This will not last you as long, but isn’t a terrible decision to puchase, unless you are looking to have it for a really long time. The biggest downside to this is that it can tear and rip much easier since it’s not a solid piece of leather. It’s bad if you have animals for instance they may scratch it, that can easily become a tear.

    @Cash000: So I asked the Darling Husband. He was in the furniture business for many years. He said that’s it, unless you’re willing to do slip covers because they can be washed.
