You are right, yonuh, I have been reading about leather furniture and have read that bonded isn't the best. You get what you pay for in leather, is what I understand. There is a furniture store in a neighboring town that is going out of business that sells high end leather. I am going to go there and see if they have anything I would like as soon as the roads get a little better around here. We have had quite the winter storm move through last weekend with some rain/sleet/ice/and snow.

Di, I am all bout EASY cleaning, lol. That is another one of my reasons for wanting a leather couch too. I get tired of vacuuming my cloth furniture. I must be getting lazy in my middle years. blush We both have allergies so I would think fewer things that would attract dust to stick on would be good...especially if you can see it and get it wiped off.
