I am extremely happy with my purchase. I have been debating whether or not to purchase this recliner & ottoman for over a year. I am very happy I took a chance on it. I am not a fan of bonded leather, which this is, but it has the look and feel of authentic leather. The back portions and the undersides of the arms are probably polyurethane rather than the bonded leather since they don't have the silky texture of the rest of it. It is very slippery so having the chair recline without sliding out of it takes some getting used to. I was very happy that the leather was a warm dark brown rather than an almost black of the photo on the website and that the wood frame was a warmer cinnamon maple stain rather than the pale maple indicated in the photo. I was thinking of staining the frame before it arrived, but the frame color is perfect. I have purchased many pieces of furniture from Overstock.com and have been happy with almost all of them. Just one heads up, I am also very good at assembling the furniture myself even though I'm a 5' 1'' female who is not very strong. I would recommend not doing this project alone since though the pieces are not heavy, they are awkward to balance, hold together and tighten the screws simultaneously. Two people working on this together could accomplish it in under an hour, alone, the final project took days since some of the holes for the arms were not aligned perfectly. Just be patient and it should come together beautifully. The recliner and ottoman came with all the necessary tools and hardware. The instructions were helpful to figure out which bolts to use where, but were otherwise rudimentary.
