I have been looking for a long time for a replacement for our two recliners. We have been moving in the direction of mid century modern decor, so when I saw this McPhereson Leather Recliner/Ottoman on O.com I was very interested. Leather and looks for a reasonable price! I bought two. When they arrived I opened and assembled one chair to be sure that I liked it. It was as some people described a challenge to assemble; although when I began simply looking at each picture it became very easy. Once assembled it looked beautiful and it was comfortable; however, it was not leather at all. The box and the tags on the unit did not say "leather" anywhere on it. Under usage the chair operated in a satisfactory manor with the exception that each part as it moved from one position to another was very squeaky and loud! I called O.com to ask about the "leather" recliner. I was informed that the description section does say that it is "bonded leather". I didn't know what that meant. I was told that bonded leather is ground up bits of leather that are basically stirred together with polyurethane to produce a plastic material. O.com was very accommodating with facilitating a return on their dime due to the misleading title of this product. If you are not bothered by the plastic faux leather covering it is a fine chair and seems to be well constructed and stylish. It is as comfortable as most chairs in this price range. I would recommend the product as described here.
It is comfortable for a small recliner. There is a knob under the seat that controls the back reclining feature. It works off of friction and is hard to tighten.
