Diamond Collection furniture

Is the Diamond Collection furniture suppose to be leather or is it vinyl? We thought it was suppose to be leather but it is vinyl.

It's genuine artificial leather.

Compliments the feux falcon frame and feux 5 year warranty pretty well

Seriously though - I think there are pros and cons to the feux leather, but ours is holding up pretty well. I'm not sure real leather couch cushions would look so well after getting pinched into the slide as many times as ours have. Gives me a heart attack everytime, but all comes out OK.

To my surprise I have found (after owning lots of leather furniture ) that I actually prefer the faux leather. It keeps its color consistency, it doesn't fade in sunlight or scratch, and it doesn't need to be conditioned and cared for so carefully. It does not stain if something gets spilled on it. It's actually very durable and I like it. This surprised me I thought I would be disappointed.

A few people have commented at Hershey about the damage their cats are doing to the furniture and we've experienced this first-hand. We have the flex steel theater furniture in our family room at home and I don't think I've seen a single scratch on that. Would love to see that in RV furniture.

We have our four cats in our RL for three years almost full time and no problem, BUT we do carry several pieces of Cat Furniture that include scratching areas for them to scratch on. If you don't give them something, they will find something on their own and you might not like it.

The furniture covering in our Redwood is much thicker / durable than what was in our previous SOB 5er
