We were told by the salespeople at the Brick that the genuine leather couch (Marisa)we were purchasing was the best quality and a great investment. Well ,when it was delivered it had a huge dent in the bottom and the fabric covering the underneath part was ripped to shreds. We decided to let this minor stuff go. What really upset us, was after only a couple of months the leather appears to be rubbing off! I can't explain it other than our couch has patches of a much lighter colour then the chocolate it originally came in. it looks terrible! my husband and I are pretty sure its not real leather at all. its only been 2.5 years. it was a complete waste of $1300 bucks. my advice , go anywhere else to buy furniture!
