How funny. I have that exact chair! Funny how they still sell it, I bought mine back in 2007. I think getting another leather is the way to go and since I have this chair, I know it not go with your rug.

I think either pull the burgundy out of the rug or the brown color. I have a burgundy leather recliner. I have a fabric sofa and found difficulty finding a recliner to match or at least make it looked like it belonged. So I opted for leather. So I feel your pain. I personally don't like recliners since many of them are very puffy. I finally found one I approved of and we got it. I am not happy with it at all. It was expensive and purchased from Lazy-boy. I don't know much about leather but the color is wearing off mine. Since you have leather you probably know what to look for but I didnt since it was the only piece of leather I ever bought. So I would stay away from Lazy-boy. Not impressed.

Girl, I am so sorry about your leather, but your pain lets me expound on the qualities of leather.
Do NOT buy leather unless it is aniline dyed.
Can I repeat that?????
Aniline dyed is a process in which the dye is spun into the leather through a centrifugal process, anything else is merely surface sprayed, and will wear off.
One of the many differences in why one pays more for good leather.....and....if I sneak this in here....
why one pays attention to a (sic) experienced designer.
I just hate it when some folks wanna spurn me for my knowledge.

Cool thanks! Had no idea. I will remember for next time, much appreciated. Personally I don't like leather furniture. I think it looks nice but I hate the feel. My husband wanted his darn recliner. So I picked out one I liked...or should I say tolerate. We bought the chair last winter so we have had it almost a year now. It looks terrible! The color has worn off at the arm rests basically where you grab the chair to get out. We paid a 1,000 dollars for it. I know its going to end up in the basement family room at some point.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the help you've given me. I have been wanting a chair or recliner for so long and didn't know what would go. I was getting so much conflicting information regarding fabric/leather and what color etc that I just gave up. Now I am going to buy this one (the earlier attached pic) TODAY! It is on sale and they're doing some special promotion after 6pm for additional discount. It is Natuzzi leather, so I think it's a really good deal. And as you stated, it really is worth knowing the leather you are buying. I feel for the other poster with her leather wearing off. For that price, that is just horrible.

Anyway, thank you again!

So glad I could help you, and I hope that you will come back and ask for help anytime you feel you need it!
