Why is it that in the US furniture are always so huge!! On top of it they look atrocious fir the most part!
Because we're big people, doing big important things, the jobs no one else is big and strong enough to handle.
God Bless The USA

I prefer it because it is warmer when you first sit down.
That too, I don't like smooth leather except its optics and smell neither at home or in the car, as its cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

If you had 9 grandchildren you would appreciate the ease with which sticky hand marks are removed!
For me, the best thing is longevity.
Fabric and faux leather deteriorate and look tatty very much quicker than leather.

You let your grandchildren inside your house? Seriously? ;)

That is true, everything is a compromise, but since I don't have grandchildren I have different priorities.

Apart from vegetarianism (I'm a BBQ lover, but try to eat less and only responsibly raised meat) and personal preferences (like the smell of leather but dislike slipperyness and the feeling when sitting down) a little excursion to car hifi: Leather interior is the second worst feature for car acoustics after a glass roof. :)

I've got a leather Stressless recliner with foot rest as well. Lovely chair. I sit down to listen to music but it's so comfortable that I just fall asleep after 20 seconds... Oh well, who cares about the music anyway? We all know it's about the gear. :p

Hi

I make do with an Aeon chair ... Incredible chair. Comfortable, ergonomic. It takes a while to adjust it to your anatomy and .. yes wathcing movies and music, then it is like not much else. I 've been using one for a long time but am finding out of place in my man cave. Looking for same degree of comfort and ergonomics in a less "office" chair with a design and modern flair... At a similar price ;)

It's not leftover skins that are used for leather. Usually, animals are bred for their leather with the leftovers going to dogfood.

And how many hunter-gatherers do you know who sit in leather Ekornes chairs?
So leather brings life where no life would be otherwise...

So many animals exist and enjoy life that otherwise wouldn't if there was no demand for their meat or skin ..

Its the strippers who end up dancing about sals leather chair we should be concerned about..
