After reading these reviews, we purchased six for our theater room. We could not be more pleased. First, and surprisingly, you can put these chairs together in seconds. The top cushion (where your head rests) just sticks into the seat cushion support brackets. Talk about easy. In addition, they have a great look. Now, the leather is actually bonded, so don't expect a thick leather feel. It doesn't look cheap or vinyl, but you can tell it is leather-looking product, but it still looks quite good and feels like bonded leather. Meaning, it does not feel like vinyl; it is closer to actual leather. The chairs look great in the space and we saved thousands going this route. Thank you Overstock. We could not be more pleased. I plan on buying two more to eventually get eight of these. Oh...one more thing...these chairs are super comfortable. My husband and I have been having date nights in the basement ever since we got the chairs. Very...very comfortable. They also stretch back completely, so if you wanted to actyally lay down completely with the chair fully extended, it does that. Talk about sleep. These are a great alternative to extremely expensive theater chairs. You'll like these.
