This is a solid and attractive copy of the classic Le Corbusier sofa. The leather seems to be good quality, soft with a real grain, not grain-corrected, as far as I can tell--at least it does not look at all plasticky. The chrome frame has not (yet) shown any sign of being cheap or poorly made.The cushions are not wholly covered with leather, as (I believe) the $4K+ versions of this sofa are: the invisible bottoms of the seats have white fabric. So there'll be no flipping of the cushions if the good side gets stained. The foam in the cushions is quite stiff--not the same experience as sitting down in a down-stuffed version--but they are loosening up already, and to me at least (at 6' 3"), the sofa has been comfortable.I've had this only for a a month or so, and it sits in a room we don't use every day. So far, though, it has done well--no problems have materialized.
