The debate and questions rage on as to bonded leather and its place in the universe.  There is no doubt that it is here to stay for good and will be a force in furniture for the foreseeable future.  Many variations of bonded leather of the last few years have been failures but the latest generations of products are very good - now lets just hope they stand the test of time.

This video from Berkline gives one a good look at a bonded leather products and also identifies what is done to manufacture the cover.  Bonded leather is now offered on sofas, sectionals, theater seating and furniture accessories and presents a significant savings over genuine leather.

The other major benefit of bonded leather is the fact that it is eco-friendly and is not made with the harmful and environmentally risky process used in the production of leather.  The curing and tanning process in leather production involves the use of dangerous and powerful chemicals.
