We were initially a little disappointed as the leather was pretty stiff when it arrived, but it has really softened up over the last couple months and feels great. The leather is very good quality and the construction is sturdy, excellent set for the money. The couch was gouged a little when it came through the door and overstock was very good about giving us a partial refund when we sent in the pictures. Delivery took three weeks. Overall, we are very happy.
