The chairs are not real leather, just some faux leather that looks terrible close up. The chairs are also poorly and cheaply made. Don't plan on sitting on one of these chairs if you're over 150 lbs. The legs are very thin and flimsy. I've only had this set for a short while, and already two of the chairs are completely broken. Both my son and I are under 150 lbs as it is. The bolts that tighten the legs to the seat are also super cheap, and many of them have shedded their threading believe it or not. I might be able to fix these things by permanently attaching them with wood glue, but almost rather just throw them out and find a different set. And btw, these chairs will not all fit under the table simultaneously. The table itself is okay, but it scratches easily and is just an average table that you'd only expect to pay $**** or $****for at most. Put your money somewhere else.
