I received two Bloomington leather chairs in the cognac color today - a quick delivery and very well packaged with no damage whatsoever. The leather is really soft and buttery, and the rusty color is absolutely gorgeous. I don't think they're actually aniline dyed leather, though, because the backing is a different color than the surface, and they'd be the same color if they were dyed that way. Curiously, none of the "tags" or packaging states that they are genuine leather, but I'm sure they are. They're full sized, deep seated chairs, and actually larger than expected. I'm 5' 8" and my feet don't quite touch when I sit all the way back, so I'll need a throw pillow behind my back. .The seats are firm and quite wide but comfortable. Be advised that the arm bolts that came with DO NOT FIT, on either chair.(hence the 4 stars) My husband went to two hardware stores and finally spent $6.50 for great big screws to attach the arms. Nevertheless, the directions are clear and in English. Assembly took forever only because he had to hunt down the arm bolts and they were hard to find. The arms and feet are very dark brown wood with the grain showing through, very nice. I am completely satisfied with the look and comfort factor of these chairs, and they are a terrific bargain. Real leather chairs in a similar style are at least $600 locally. Don't hesitate if you want sleek, unique modern seating, And don't be intimidated by the meager measurements, they're more than big enough for tall or wide people!
