It looks like other people have had this problem too. The top layer of what I thought was leather is peeling off the backing. Not happy at all. Homemakers in Des Moines Iowa will not do anything. We purchased the recliner (#441703 LTR Recliner Rocker) on 05/11/12. Homemakers said that if there was a hole in the leather they could fix it but not for the damage we have. This does not look good to purchase other Lane furniture. There has not been heavy usage or kids around this chair. We are retired.
