Being a vegan, I dont buy leather. But when I was in the market for some bar stools for the mini-bar I have have in my new house, most of the ones I found were made of acrylic or plastic or leather. And the few faux leather ones I found just didnt look good at all. Thankfully, I found this one, and I grabbed four of them. Very pleased with the purchase -- awesome modern style great faux leather upholstery.
